Not so long ago Republicans pretended to care about how classified information is handled.
I've just gotta say this too - that the extent to which the GOP has attuned its reality to Trump's "greatness" is appalling. He is a mere private citizen, yet ironically, the outrage seems to stem from their perception of him as some sort of potentate or royalty to whom the laws do not apply. The groveling knucklehead Pence has expressed his dismay that his former boss (who was willing to see Pence die for the crime of upholding our Constitution) should be subjected to treatment not fitting for King Donald.
Already the criminal cult of personality is busy weaponizing this warrant by claiming Biden "ordered" it. They forget all the times Trump publicly directed the Justice Dept. to investigate Democrats, beginning with his delusion in March 2017 in which he was convinced Obama "wiretaped" Trump Tower. There was a Senate investigation instead, which found nothing.
Who is the danged fool who called it a raid and caused the news media to follow suit? It was not a raid, but the execution of a search warrant. To the best of our knowledge, a "raid" is a forceful entry. The FBI worked with the Secret Service to execute the warrant, and you can bet it was planned to take place when the Trumps weren't there.
Of course the hyperbolic noises being made by the right wing media and the GOP are meant to help Trump, who is perfect and innocent. None are a surprise. It even shows how low Trump has sunk, that he can't get a personal lawyer who doesn't sound like Saul Goodman defending the Salamancas.
Excellent report - the unbelievable hypocrisy, and the reveals. The two-faced cravenness, myopic self-service, tightrope walking of Pence and McCarthy rallying around Trump for partisan power. This is just jaw dropping chutzpah. This DEPENDS on people forgetting, on forgetting what they said. Whatever sticks at the moment. So it's a service here to bring the past up, to have the evidence on hand to throw back at them.
The investigators may come up with "bupkes" because Trump may have flushed any incriminating evidence. But what is missing is still missing one way or another unless found. And maybe they will find what else. It is said that they must have some recent info of what they could find. Andrew Weissmann former federal prosecutor and F.B.I. general counsel who worked on the Mueller investigation is good in this Q&A if you can get it.. https://www.newyorker.com/news/q-and-a/what-the-fbis-raid-of-mar-a-lago-could-mean-for-trump?
Excellent analysis as usual Aaron…..thanks for the research….they’re such hypocrites ‼️‼️‼️
Oh boy. The next few months are going to be "fun".
I'm not a praying person, but I pray for the day when these people get so tangled up in their own lies that they fall down and can't get up again.
Oddly enough, what just popped into my head was Oscar Wilde's "The Picture of Dorian Gray." Are there portraits or maybe photos of these people stashed away somewhere that reflect the ugliness of their lies and their deeds? Will any of them ever look their ugliness in the eye?
When they make us hate, they have won. We must remember this.
The lickspittle politicians won’t ever denounce trump. They’re afraid he’ll sic his MAGGOTs on them.
I’m still in the Garland is useless camp. He could’ve prosecuted Trump ten times over based on Mueller. Mueller interviewed 500 witnesses and subpoenad 2500 documents, yet Garland chose to go with the ridiculous assertion that the evidence wasn’t enough. The Daniels bribe indictment even named Trump, and nothing from Garland, not even a mention. Anyway it’s already too late, so much damage has been done it’ll take decades to reverse. Color me nonplussed. Aside from the fact that wasn’t Giuliani and Eastman and Gaetz and others raided many months, even a year, ago? And crickets.
