Former President Donald Trump recently had harsh words for the special counsel overseeing the investigation into the classified documents found at his Mar-a-Lago estate.

According to Mediaite, Trump's remarks come as the federal government pushes back against the former president's claim that the documents were declassified. Despite Trump's arguments, the federal government insists the documents were, indeed, classified.

On Thursday, January 12, the former president appeared on "The Mark Levin Show" where he reacted to the news about some documents being found in President Joe Biden's office. The documents at the center of these reports date back to Biden's time as vice president in the Obama administration.

Responding to the matter, the White House, per Mediaite, insisted it "immediately notified the National Archives and the Department of Justice, which appointed a special counsel – separate from the Trump case – to probe the matter."

While Trump has refused to accept accountability for the documents found at Mar-a-Lago, he wasted no time attempting to hold Biden accountable for the documents previously found in his vice president's office.

“Biden took them and as vice president, he doesn’t have the rights to do this,” Trump said. “It’s a very serious problem, but it’s not a problem for me. I’m allowed to do that.”

Trump went on to share his prediction of what he believes might be next regarding Biden and the classified documents. He also offered a critical opinion of special counsel Jack Smith, who is currently conducting the investigation into Trump's classified documents case.

“But this prosecutor should resign,” he said. “He’s a terrorist. He is a Trump-hater. His best friends are [Andrew] Weissmann and all of these characters. Lisa Monaco at the Justice Department, one of the top officials. This is a disgraceful situation. He should resign. His wife hates Trump probably even beyond him. And his wife and his wife has a sister who openly hates like, a level that you can’t even believe.”

Trump added, “I did nothing wrong. What they did is not good. What they did is bad.”
