The large number of documents that Trump kept (stolen) by Trump sheds light on the mystery

Of his tendency to tear up large quantities of documents that he handled while in the WH that his aides had to tape back together. This was the likely tge separating of his intended haul of what he wanted to take with him when he left and destroying the rest. Those that he tore up were ones that he definitely did not want to take with him and keep. The other things (the checking and rechecking of the boxes when he was president, deciding which boxes he wanted to take with him in the helicopter (the ones he wanted to keep with him at all times) and which ones could be left behind at MAL when he went to Bedminster or another property.

So this brings up another question. When the warrant was served at MAL while Trump was in Bedminster watching on closed circuit TV, what documents did he have with him at the time in Bedminster and where does he have them right now? These are probably among the ones that the National Archives say are still missing and with his fetish about them being his, they must be somewhere where he can lay his hands on them.

A casket will hold, that is. He probably has others he carts around. I can't wait until all this shit is over. Such an ugly demon nightmare from hell.

I'm obviously missing something.

What would be the point of putting classified documents there?

They are pieces of paper. If he wants to get rid of them, he is perfectly capable of burning them, tearing them up and flushing them, whatever. In fact, he had previously destroyed documents that way.

Is the idea that he'll go back with a shovel and remove them at some future time, after they have been in an enclosed space with a decomposing corpse?

Like, explain to me what would be the freaking point of going through the trouble of sneaking them into a casket that is going to be buried. They are just pieces of paper that are pretty simple to destroy.

I figure he would get Jr to do the digging.
I think he is hiding some extra valuable (in his mind) documents that he might be able to use to “get out of jail”’or pay another country to expatriate him.

He's obsessed with them. They are money in the bank to him. They are currency with autocratic world leaders. Ivana was cremated and her urn or whatever is interred at Bedminster. There may be a vault in the ground that can be opened. I just know that there are still a large number of other docs unaccounted for (much more than from any other president) and I think he still has some of them somewhere. I know I'm paranoid about him, but I do know that he was in Bedminster when the warrant was served at MAL and he has been in the habit of traveling with at least a few boxes in his plane wherever he went ever since 2017, so he still has some somewhere, but the government has to have some idea where they are to get another warrant. They can't just start digging at Bedminster.
