Who will Trump throw under the buss for taking boxes of national archive and potentially sensitive information? He is the best at getting others to do his dirty work, so someone is about to get tire treads down their backs.

The tone over on NEWSMAX MAGA
heads are exploding

Here’s a good one. From the cult

If you don't fertilize the tree of Liberty from time to time with the blood of tyrants and patriots, how do you expect that tree to continue living? Quit being afraid and do what must be done!

Clearly not talking about What Trump did


Hannity is going deep on whataboutism and of course Hunter

2 tiered justice system

And Ron run to Trumps defense

The raid of MAL is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves. Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic.

If you think that this is a nothing burger, do you know how much evidence it takes to sign off on a no-knock raid at the home of a former President?

Best thing about 18 USC 2071 is it bars you from holding any office ever again

Pure speculation:

1) Taking a run at a former President for classified document mishandling is extremely high risk, but super low payoff.

2) Taking a run at a former President for selling access to documents in a private office is extremely high risk, but very high payoff.

Do you know how guilty you have to be for a federal judge that you appointed to sign off on a search warrant issued by an FBI director that you also appointed and executed by a DOJ attorney that you also appointed?

You can think it’s a joke, I am NOT happy a former President’s residence was raided by the FBI. I’m appalled. I’m ashamed.

I’m appalled and ashamed that it was necessary.

Appalled and ashamed that the future of my country requires it.

But it does.

Mini Me Ron is certainly hoping he gets charged, so he can pick up the baton.

Odd how enforcement of the law and getting to the bottom to the only American President to conspire to steal an election

Is dumbed down by the faithful as a a Distraction

Part of trumps statement about the raid.

Hillary Clinton was allowed to delete and acid wash 33,000 E-mails AFTER they were subpoenaed by Congress. Absolutely nothing has happened to hold her accountable. She even took antique furniture, and other items from the White House.? Which were returned a week later

Trumps refused to return these documents not Gifts for 2 years

I stood up to America’s bureaucratic corruption, I restored power to the people, and truly delivered for our Country, like we have never seen before. The establishment hated it. Now, as they watch my endorsed candidates win big victories, and see my dominance in all polls, they are trying to stop me



“See my Dominance “. Just those 3 words should raise the hair on the back of your neck

What’s sad is republicans elected and sitting in congress and statehouse and governor seats

Are attacking the FBI and the DOJ
Just to support their re election or election campaigns.

None have defended due process or the legal base for such an action..

They jump to defend a Man over the nation and it’s institutions .

They even use the term banana republic wrong. Lol

I doubt the White House embraced or approved the timing of the raid .

Why give the Maga dog a bone prior to the midterms

Specifically, the law in question — Section 2071 of Title 18 of the United States Code — makes it a crime if someone who has custody of government documents or records “willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies or destroys” them.

If convicted, defendants can be fined or sentenced to prison for up to three years. In addition, the statute says, if they are currently in a federal office, they “shall forfeit” that office, and they shall “be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.”

On its face, then, if Mr. Trump were to be charged and convicted of removing, concealing or destroying government records under that law, he would seem to be ineligible to become president again.

But there was reason for caution: The law briefly received a close look in 2015, after it came to light that Hillary Clinton, then widely anticipated to be the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, had used a private email server to conduct government business while secretary of state.

Some Republicans were briefly entranced with whether the law could keep Mrs. Clinton out of the White House, including Michael Mukasey, a former attorney general in the administration of George W. Bush. So was at least one conservative think tank.

But in considering that situation, several legal scholars — including Seth B. Tillman of Maynooth University in Ireland and Eugene Volokh of the University of California, Los Angeles — noted that the Constitution sets eligibility criteria for who can be president, and argued that Supreme Court rulings suggest Congress cannot alter them. The Constitution allows Congress to disqualify people from holding office in impeachment proceedings, but grants no such power for ordinary criminal law.

Mr. Volokh later reported on his blog that Mr. Mukasey — who is also a former federal judge — wrote that “upon reflection,” Mr. Mukasey had been mistaken and Mr. Tillman’s analysis was “spot on.” (Mrs. Clinton was never charged with any crime related to her use of the server.)

On Monday, one of the most prominent voices pointing to Section 2071, the Democratic lawyer Marc Elias — who served as general counsel for Mrs. Clinton’s campaign — initially cited the law’s disqualification provision in a Twitter post as “the really, really big reason why the raid today is a potential blockbuster in American politics.”

He followed up with another Twitter post acknowledging that any conviction under Section 2071 might not ultimately bar Mr. Trump from seeking the presidency again — but arguing that a legal fight over it would still be important.

“Yes, I recognize the legal challenge that application of this law to a president would garner (since qualifications are set in Constitution),” he wrote. “But the idea that a candidate would have to litigate this is during a campaign is in my view a ‘blockbuster in American politics.’”

Fox News has been unable to spin this Mar-a-Lago story in their favor. Trump’s home was searched by 30 FBI Agents with a Warrant. Tucker Carlson was so embarrassed & confused that he skipped his own show. Jim’s gone to Maine to tan his testicles with Tuck. Trump supporters can’t face the cold-reality of what is about to happen:
Trump is their MAGA messiah. Their God. And now, all the lies he told them are unraveling at the seams. Get ready for mass psychosis to set in.

What happens next. Jonestown? Or worse?
