Once again I’m departing from my usual humorous blog to vet.
Time Out. We need a national time out to locate all the secret documents in unauthorized places like homes, garages, etc. The current system isn’t working. Secrets are leaking from our government like water through a sieve. This is an embarrassment to our country. Politicians can’t be trusted to properly secure classified materials. Many don’t know how or haven’t been trained to do so. Some can’t be trusted.
I recommend the DOJ allow 30 days for every politician to search their own properties and return all classified materials to the archives or wherever they belong. After 30 days, the FBI should search every politicians’ properties for secret materials beginning to those in session to the President (VP, the Speaker of the House, The President Pro Tempore of the Senate, and then Cabinet secretaries.) Then we need to institute a better plan for tracking classified materials (See my blog from January 13, 2023). Every classified item should be tagged with a tracking device—one that triggers an alarm when it leaves the building. Whenever a politician leaves office or retires, their properties should be searched again by the FBI. No classified material should leave a government building where it is properly secured.
The FBI will need help. They should be allowed to use the Military branches of each service. They should be able to complete their searches within one year or less.
