See below for video of Sen. Tim Kaine talking to Jim Acosta yesterday afternoon. According to Kaine:

“Under Joe Biden, their secrets will be safe. Under Donald Trump their secrets were for sale. My gut tells me that the reason that Donald Trump took all this classified information – I’m on the Armed Services and Foreign Relations Committee, I spend a lot of time in secure Senate facilities, I know what this information is like – the reason that Trump took this with him to Florida was probably to try to either sell it or have it as a get out of jail free card…The DoJ effort, the FBI effort to bring back these secrets so that Donald Trump doesn’t have them and then have some consequences for him for taking them with him in an unauthorized way, it’s really important that we impose accountability for this.”

Also: “We’re not in an easy time right now. Accountability for Donald Trump will make some people mad. But refusing to impose accountability will be much more destructive to US democracy than insisting that nobody’s above the law.”
