Trump claims that the documents retrieved from Mar-a-Lago were declassified as, while he was president, he had the right to do that. That's true: he did have the right to do that, although there seems to be no evidence he followed the process for doing it.
So, all that needs to happen now is that one or more expert witnesses who are familiar with the content of the TS/SCI documents should testify that, if they were to be declassified, this would cause significant harm to the national interest of the USA. In other words:
- if Trump did declassify them he was working against the national interest of the USA and is thus a traitor;
- if he did not declassify them then he is guilty of espionage.
