Former President Donald Trump on Monday took time off from melting down over the FBI executing a search warrant at his home to seize classified documents to demand that he be installed as commander-in-chief of the United States—22 months after he decisively lost the 2020 race.
I own a newspaper registered in Lane County. I am being viciously attacked by ugly women who claim I victimizing them. They are lairs!
Will Kavanaugh vote to exonerate Trump of all crimes against women?
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Monday accused NBC of being a “co-conspirator” in an attempt to bring down Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, criticizing the network for its coverage of assault accusations against Kavanaugh.
“They’ve been a co-conspirator in the destruction of Kavanaugh from my point of view,” Graham said during an appearance on Fox News’s “Hannity.”
- The Justice Department is investigating Trump’s handling of classified government documents.
- Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday that if Trump is prosecuted there will be riots.
- Graham said federal law enforcement has a “double standard” when it comes to Trump.
Lindsey Graham fired the first shot in the Second Civil War – THE REVENGE OF THE DEMOCRATS
Who can dig up more dirt – and destroy the other party?
Lindsey and his Neo-Confederate Think Tanks have worked hard to prove the North are the traitors, and, the South – ARE THE PATRIOTS! This is why they went after Clinton’s e-mails so long and hard. Now, the Democrat President, and his party, are poised to yet again prove THE RED STATES are run by TRAITORS to our Democracy.
Study the pics above, and now put a pic of Trump in PRISON – along with his co-conspirators – many who are Christian Extremists! Will they do MOST OF THE RIOTING? Or, will they leave it up to their Goon Squads, the American Taliban? Like the real Taliban, the Republican Party invented a new loyalty chick, being……If you are not on Jesus’s side, you are a traitor of God, and an enemy of Jesus! The majority of Americans did not want the repeal of Woe vs. Wade, but traitors like Lindsey, had no qualms about using the un-born and aborted as their Neo-Confederate weapon.
“Lincoln Project co-founder Rick Wilson said that the Washington world of “elite Republicans” are playing a game in which they hear former President Donald Trump insult and attack or say inappropriate things and they clutch their pearls, only to forget they ever cared to begin with.
MSNBC host Yasmin Vossoughian quoted Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO), who chastised the former president for refusing to hand over any documents when they were requested over a year ago. The government began asking for the stolen documents in May 2021. It wasn’t until the first of 2022 that the National Archives was forced to travel down to Mar-a-Lago and bring back a truckload of boxes containing what Trump stole.
Once the Archives discovered that there were classified and top secret documents involved, they turned the issue over to the Justice Department. After requests and letters, the DOJ, mid-year, issued a subpoena, and months after that they executed a search warrant.
Former Trump chief of staff Mick Mulvaney tweeted the question: What happens if the documents Trump stole had to do with the Russia investigation? The tweet came after Mulvaney dismissed the concern because they were “just documents.”
“Yeah, it’s just documents, highly classified documents leaving assets overseas highly vulnerable,” said Vossoughian.
Wilson explained that “elite Washington has a very convenient game where they back away slowly and they say to reporters especially, ‘I don’t believe it,'” he used as one frequently said GOP claim. Another he said was, “‘I can’t get behind this.’ Then when they realize that Trump still controls 35 percent of the Republican base with an absolute iron grip, they will then drift back and say, but, it’s obviously the FBI’s fault. They will make excuses. This is a game that Washington plays. They tried it a lot to try and convince reporters that they’re in on the gag and how terrible Trump is. The reality is they will always go back into the kneeling position in front of Donald Trump when he snaps the whip in exercises his power over the base of the party, which is still uncontested by any of the Republican leader in the country.”
Vossoughian went on to cite the political belief that a civil war is coming and the far-right believe that one-third of Americans believe that the “American way of life” is disappearing.
Wilson explained that the civil war is already happening.
“The biggest fault anyone in America can have from 2015 on is not imagining that the worst can happen,” said Wilson. “Because the worst can happen. The worst has happened. No one before 2015 would’ve said, ‘Oh, a president will not accept the results of election and will launch a violent attack on the U.S. Capitol.’ There was a failure of imagination. There has been one over and over again when it comes to both Trump and to the authoritarian movement that he has spawned and supported in fostered and pushed. The idea that we cannot end up in a civil war — it is absurd. We certainly can! the great writer William Gibson once and that ‘The future is here, it is just not evenly distributed yet.’ We have a civil war that is not evenly distributed yet. We have one coming faster than we might imagine if we do not take steps to perfect this democracy.”
Michael McFaul, a former US ambassador to Russia, said Putin has “failed” in his Ukraine objectives.
- Six months into the war, Putin has faced too many failures to come back from them, he said.
- McFaul also referenced how Putin now lacks the troops required to achieve any substantial goals.
Republicans appeared on Sunday morning news shows, making it clear that they’re not comfortable with Donald Trump’s latest scandal, the New York Times round-up explained.
Monday begins the third week since the FBI executed a search warrant at Trump’s golf club in Palm Beach, Florida. What they recovered was a cache of government documents that Trump stole to take with him upon leaving the White House. A number of the documents were so top secret that the government has been unable to describe them to the public.
The unprecedented raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate might be part of a larger deep-state plan to indict the former president in front of a D.C. jury, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told Fox News.
Life, Liberty, and Levin host Mark Levin illustrated in the opening monologue of his Sunday broadcast that former President Trump has been hypocritically targeted by a corrupt system.
he National Archives and Records Administration has become yet another target of threats in the wake of attacks by former President Donald Trump after the FBI seized government documents from his Mar-a-Lago residence, sources have told The WashingtonPost.
After Trump unleashed a torrent of invective against an agency widely viewed as librarian-like and apolitical, police increased patrols around the National Archives building in Washington, D.C., due to a troubling “spike in online chatter” about the facility, sources told the Post.
It was the National Archives that ultimately set in motion the FBI search of Mar-a-Lago when it alerted the Department of Justice last year about concerns that Trump had not turned over all White House documents to the agency at the end of his term, as the Presidential Records Act requires.
Earlier this month, the FBI seized several boxes of material stashed at Mar-a-Lago, including classified, and even top secret, information.
Trump later ranted in an attack on NARA that all anyone had to do was simply ask for the documents. But communications included in the affidavit supporting the search revealed that U.S. officials had been attempting since early last year to retrieve the documents.
Not only were several boxes of documents recovered, but officials noted in the affidavit that the records — including highly sensitive national security information — were also haphazardly stored with other papers.
Acting archivist Debra Steidel Wall sent a message Wednesday telling NARA staff to stand strong in the face of threats, according to the Post.
“NARA has received messages from the public accusing us of corruption and conspiring against the former President, or congratulating NARA for ‘bringing him down,’” Steidel Wall wrote in the agency-wide message obtained by The Post. “Neither is accurate or welcome.”
Trump has treated the documents as his personal property, though, under the Presidential Records Act, they belong to the American people.
“Without the preservation of the records of government, and without access to them, you can’t have an informed population, and without an informed population, you lack one of the basic tools to preserving democracy,” former acting archivist Trudy Peterson told the Post.
Now, the Justice Department and the intelligence community are working to assess the potential security threat caused by the improper storage of classified documents at Mar-a-Lago.
Trump has unleashed a torrent of rage against other federal workers attempting to enforce laws.
Extremists erupted online, posting calls for a civil war and for Americans to “lock and load” after Trump and a number of Republican lawmakers used incendiary language to attack the FBI and the Department of Justice over the search of Trump’s Florida residence.
Federal authorities warned of a spike in threats to law enforcement after Trump’s attacks in a joint intelligence bulletin by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security, warning agents to be vigilant.
An organization of FBI agents issued a forceful statement sharply criticizing threats and calls for violence against agents.
“Calls for violence against law enforcement are unacceptable, and should be condemned by all leaders,” said the statement issued by the FBI Agents Association. “This is not a partisan or political issue. It is a matter of public safety and basic decency.”
