​​​​Can Senators declassify documents?
NO.

What difference does declassification make if the content of the document remains sensitive and it's unauthorized disclosure could cause injury to the United States or give advantage to any foreign nation?

Guilty of stealing classified papers.  When he was a Senator.  When he was the Vice President.  He certainly did hold onto classified papers, and never even told government officials where they were being kept.  Trump completely cooperated with the FBI.  Biden's lawyers wouldn't even allow the FBI inside his residence.  The man is a guilty-as-Manson crook.

Yep.

There are separate, yet equally important issues that need to be investigated thoroughly.

I'm pretty sure that's the same criminal code that was being tossed around after the Mar a Lago raid.

They knew Trump had his.

Personally, I would say Biden's case borders on espionage.

I really disagree.  It's not like Biden traded secrets with other countries.

Apples and oranges.

President Trump was never in possession of top secret classified documents

Senator Xiden stoled top secret classified documents and nuclear codes.

One violated the espionage act and the other didn't.

of course it does.  Can you read?


Whoever, being an officer, employee, contractor, or consultant of the United States, and, by virtue of his office, employment, position, or contract, becomes possessed of documents or materials containing classified information of the United States, knowingly removes such documents or materials without authority and with the intent to retain such documents
