Reader's View: But why did Trump take those documents?

No matter how much noise he and his followers make about the documents’ retrieval by the FBI, it will not alter the fact that he should have left them in Washington, D.C., on his departure to private life.

I haven’t seen or heard anything in the media on why President Donald Trump took those documents on his departure to Florida. For what purpose did he keep them?

No matter how much noise he and his followers make about the documents’ retrieval by the FBI, it will not alter the fact that he should have left them in Washington, D.C., on his departure to private life — or that he had no more right to them than I do or any other private citizen does.

Letters to the editor are a critical part of the community dialogue, and the News Tribune attempts to publish all letters of opinion meeting our requirements.
Letters are limited to 300 words, must be the original work of the author and must be exclusive to the News Tribune. Letters are edited for style, space, accuracy and civility. Letter writers are limited to one published submission every 30 days.
With rare exceptions, the News Tribune does not publish poetry; letters that are anonymous, libelous, or attack other writers; consumer-complaint letters; thank-you letters or letters generated by political or special-interest campaigns.
We will consider exclusive local view columns of about 600 words or fewer. Authors should possess unique insights, and their commentaries should demonstrate greater knowledge of their subject than letters.
