    It’s a question that many have pondered,Trump hasn’t said why either,he had a chance to return them a call it an oversight but he hid them intentionally so what in your opinion was his thinking?.

    Being as this is a man that takes pride in the fact that he doesn't read, I can rule out bathroom reading material...

    They're for Putin, to ensure he doesn't release the tapes of Trump in compromising situations.

    Like George said, it certainly wasn't to read and review.

    I'm guessing some sort of bargaining chip (for what I can only guess); or possibly to sell to foreign nationals for money. The only thing that motivates Trump, other than ego.

    My guess, since it's Trump, the profit motive jumps to the front of the line. He had plans to allow ghostwriters access to the material for future books.

    I heard they had some records of the animosity between Trump and the DOJ. Maybe he thought he could get a book deal out of it.

    The Supreme Leader required access to this information so that he might adequately prepare for the coming tribulations lurking past the horizon which only he can see. Even now, as we speak… his own crucible is at hand, and the situation is dire… but as we all know in our hearts, he will overcome it. There is no battle Donaldus can not win. That is why we know that when the time comes, he will rise again… to conquer calamity, to defend our great nation, and to save America… from itself.

    But can he afford to pay anybody to write it for him? (May not be truly necessary, as I suspect most of his supporters -- who might buy the book -- don't read above a grade 7 level.)

    One explanation I heard was that Trump has a huge collection of memorabilia, like sports and history, and that these documents might have been contraband that he wanted to keep as part of his hobby. This does seem reasonable to me since the man is a simpleton and not terribly rational. I seriously doubt he was going to sell these documents because he does not read.

    And it assumes the bozo can and does read. And can think in strategic ways with forethought.

    I almost wonder if he did it just to get caught and keep media attention on him as long as he can. The man seems to crave attention more than anything, and he does appear to believe he could "...stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose voters," so why not see how far he can push himself legally?

    He kept the files for the same reasons as Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and every other former President kept theirs.
