    Here is the question that has been asked repeatedly but is not yet answered: WHY did he want them?

    My opinion:

    1. narcissism. To him they are trophies

    2. ignorance of the laws and regulations. No excuse of course, but not impossible that he was ignorant of the laws.

    3. Leverage

I understand that one of his defense strategies has been that he has personal writing on the documents, which therefore make them personal documents. If he were to think that the handwriting was incriminating or embarrassing for next administrations to read, it would explain why he took them (and why he wanted a special master to make a neutral judgement). It's well established that he is deeply insecure about his image.

The unspoken possibility (almost unthinkable for a former president) is that he is sharing them deliberately with foreign powers. I doubt this one is true, because it would be treasonous and I don't think he's that stupid - but that's the perception he's battling.
