On Tuesday prior to his arraignment by the Biden regime, President Trump made a remarkable statement on Truth Social, that crucial information was not presented to the federal grand jury in his case before the Justice Department’s decision to indict him.

Take a look:

While speaking in Columbus, Georgia, on Saturday, America’s President made a reference to the Clinton “socks case.”

“They also don’t mention the defining lawsuit that was brought against Bill Clinton,” he said, “and it was lost by the government — the famous socks case that says he can keep his documents. They don’t mention that.”

The “socks case” refers to the legal dispute known as Judicial Watch, Inc. v. National Archives and Records Administration, which took place in 2012.

According to Reuters, the case revolved around 79 audio recordings that Clinton possessed, including interviews he conducted with historian Taylor Branch during his presidency. Branch later published a book in 2009 called “The Clinton Tapes: Wrestling History with the President,” which was based on these interviews.

In a GQ magazine interview, Taylor Branch revealed that Clinton had stored the cassettes in his sock drawer. Subsequently, in 2010, Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit against the National Archives, seeking access to these tapes. Clinton had classified them as personal records and had not handed them over to the Archives in accordance with the Presidential Records Act.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia acknowledged in her opinion that the Judicial Watch complaint claimed that the tapes covered a broad spectrum of presidential matters.

The tapes included such issues as discussions about the possible dismissal of then-CIA Director James Woolsey, foreign policy decisions like military intervention in Haiti and potential changes to the U.S. embargo on Cuba, phone conversations with international leaders, and a discussion between Clinton and Secretary of State Warren Christopher regarding the volatile situation in Bosnia.

Despite acknowledging Judicial Watch’s perspective that Clinton should have submitted the tapes to the Archives, Judge Jackson ruled against the organization. She explained that even if she were inclined to agree with their argument, the court did not have a legal remedy to offer in this situation.

Judge Jackson’s opinion stated that the Presidential Records Act does not grant the Archivist any mandatory or discretionary power to classify records. She emphasized that the statute assigns this responsibility exclusively to the President.
