CBS must show that the documents they display were known to be in existence from creation through decades of cold storage to discovery (by whom?) to transfer (via whom?) to CBS.
Since the documents are NOT classified, no laws have been broken by any purported custodians or couriers.

The only purpose served by keeping secret the names of the sequential custodians, is to allow convenient assumptions (that the chain is legitimate) to go unquestioned — when in truth, the chain must be PROVEN, not assumed.p>The photocopies just ‘“fell from the sky,” Rather is asserting.

Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
