Just a politically motivated witch hunt. Come November these political organisations will get their comeuppance. That's looking good.

Sounds a bit like a witch-hunt.

When is this ag going after hillary, biden and hunter? Haha!

The DoJ has an ongoing investigation of Hunter Biden. Ms. Clinton was investigated and cleared, but since you mention it former Secretary of State Colin Powell had a similar private server and indeed advised others to do the same for use in their dealings with parties outside of the US government Why do this? Because the US Government IT was so old it was often incompatible with the IT used by outside parties. Rather than frustrated outside parties forced to deal with old fashioned incompatible US Government IT certain high government officials had private servers with up to date IT for their dealings with outside parties. The same situation was true during the Trump administration but there were no calls for investigations.

Only the great President Trump gets investigated because the dems are scared of him

Only Mr. Trump among those mentioned led a seditious conspiracy that resulted in an attack on Congress.

I wonder who stiffened the law concerning the removal of classified documents from the Whitehouse? Oh, that’s right, now I remember.

ust a politically motivated witch hunt

Trump backers, US and Foreign, seem to think US laws do not apply to Trump, the dictator-wannabe and dictator's friend, who's been able to slime his way along through life like a mafia don while he gets his supporters to send him money. He's even got his base, al Qaeda in Arabic, so riled up they're opening their private arsenals ready to destroy the US government, a country and government they despise, so their cult leader can have even greater control of the country, while at the same time claiming they are constitution defending patriots. Didn't the US Constitution establish separation of powers so a dictator could not take control, like Putin did in Russia and Xi Jinping did in China. Trump must have seen how rich Putin has become, so he is jealous and wants to take more from the US a country he's given so little to.

Trump has condemned Monday's raid as politically motivated and a "weaponization" of the Justice Department. "Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before," he said.

Trump view himself as exceptional (in a good way) and his supporters, despite all evidence to the contrary, will still come and defend him as being a target for persecution,a witch hunt.

Because he was taking on the "elite", the "establishment", the Swamp.

But Pepperidge Farms still remembers when he attacked Wall Street in his campaign in 2016 and called Hilary Clinton a "tool of Wall Street" yet when in office carried on with the trickle down economics.

https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-i-just-dont-want-a-poor-person-iowa-rally-2017-6

The only people who benefited from the Trump regime were debt collectors and right wing shills and Wall Street, but the deluded cult carries on.

I disliked Trump personally but gave him the benefit of the doubt in 2016 .

His appointments and results quickly showed what a fraud the "anti-establishment" pose was.

Given the evidence it is hard to see how his base carries on with their cultish love for Trump.

I think they have invested too much of their identity in being a Trumpist and owning the libs.

The only reason Trump won't get impeached a THIRD time is because he isn't the president. He L O S T T H E E L E C T I O N. People who unfailingly support this guy have some serious screws loose!

17 ( +24 / -7 )

Trump has until tomorrow 3pm to raise objections to the release of the warrant and the inventory of removed documents.

Of course, all the claims of planting evidence suggests that Trump knows he has something he shouldn't have had. The stereotypical Trumpian misinformation campaign played into Garland's hands - the last thing he wants to be made public is a list of the documents he was illegally on possession of. Garland also knows what's been found which is why he so confident.

Trump's ballsed this up big time.

16 ( +20 / -4 )

Trump is a criminal and finally legal agencies are acting on this crimes. If he didn't steal government property to hide his crimes he would not have had his home searched. And regarding the illegal activity of this company as being exposed by the NY AG what does Trump do in response, pleads the 5th because as he admits if he told the truth it would confirm his crimes. Trump has said it before himself, if you are innocent you do not plead the 5th. You plead the 5th if you know you are guilty of the crimes.

Trump belongs in jail for hundreds of crimes he has committed, the most horrible his being a traitor to his country and responsible for the deaths of cops on January 6th last year.

Garland criticized "unfounded attacks on the professionalism of the FBI and Justice Department agents and prosecutors" following the raid.

There are people here guilty of this and they should be ashamed of themselves.

76-year-old Trump

Biden is 79, Putin is 69, as is Xi Jinping, the global leaders of the fossil economy care little if anything about shifting away from the past and have the power and wealth to stop any progress that does not further enrich them and those of their age group at the highest levels of governments and corporations controlling the fossil economy. One even has said 'wind turbines cause cancer'. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2019/04/03/cancer-causing-wind-turbines-president-donald-trump-claim-blown-away/3352175002/

if you’re thinking of our favorite prison camp commandant fan boy I wouldn’t hold my breath on that. Garland is interfering with Truuuuuuumps ability to put undesirables back in their rightful place. Doubt he can ever forgive Garland for that

As per usual Trump supporters will say it's a conspiracy.

To all Republicans.......

Be careful what you ask for.

Where under normal circumstances we would have no idea what was going on by Trump blowing his horn he has allowed for the documents to be made public.

If Trump and the Republicans had wanted this they could have revealed the documents 2 days ago.... but no they just went their merry way. They shouted from the rooftops about this illegal raid, and Merrick Garland is calling their bluff.

This won't be good for Trump or all of those who have criticized the raid.

9 ( +13 / -4 )

Trump backers, US and Foreign, seem to think US laws do not apply to Trump,

But he followed the law, it’s in the documents, he and his legal staff cooperated with the DOJ non-stop. Again, go through the legal channels of a subpoena, thank God Trump’s staff kept those security cameras running. That helps him a lot.

the dictator-wannabe and dictator's friend,

More leftist garbage

He's even got his base, al Qaeda in Arabic, so riled up they're opening their private arsenals ready to destroy the US government,

What?

https://nypost.com/2022/08/03/saudis-thumb-nose-at-bidens-request-to-boost-oil-output/

a country and government they despise, so their cult leader can have even greater control of the country, while at the same time claiming they are constitution defending patriots.

Something this administration refuses to defend

Didn't the US Constitution establish separation of powers so a dictator could not take control, like Putin did in Russia and Xi Jinping did in China.

Good point and that’s exactly why your deepest and darkest fears should be calmed after November it should restore the rule of democracy once again.

Trump must have seen how rich Putin has become, so he is jealous and wants to take more from the US a country he's given so little to.

Probably not, he has enough money, property and land, but there are other very high prominent Democrats that want what Putin has and and as of now the DOJ will allow these people to continue doing what they’re doing….for now. Time is running out though for them.

Kurumazaka2.1 - yes, but not he alone.

As any kid who ever had Civics back in the day knows, there are 3 branches of US government.

Executive. Legislative. Judicial. The 3 are created so that no one branch can over extend control the USA. Trump tried to control the Judicial branch by asking for Comey's loyalty, and it was a breech of the common good to the office of the president and democracy of America.

He has denounced the raid on Mar-a-Lago with conspiracy of the justice system, screaming bias and complaining like the juvenile he is. One who got dissed trying to get the FBI to side with him during his presidency.

Garland says: "Faithful adherence to the rule of law is the bedrock principle of the Justice Department and of our democracy," "Holding the rule of law means applying the law evenly without fear or favor."

It was due diligence on his decision to raid Trump's pad. It was warranted.

7 ( +12 / -5 )

This is an early Christmas present for Trump, his supporters and the Republican party. The taking down of Roe v Wade proved that the judicial system in the US is merely an extension of the divisive and toxic political system. On top of their other electoral problems (the economy, shortages, inflation, the Republican Supreme Court, Ukraine), the Democrats really didn't need this.

-7 ( +6 / -13 )

The Trump base will call him a martyr. 

Which is already backfiring on the Democrats! ROFL!

Trump loves his poorly educated base

Democrats don’t, why would they care, they haven’t for over 60 years and now that more and more of the poor and minorities are voting GOP this expands the base and thankfully they are all slowly waking up. So since you have more poor than Rich and that number is growing, expect a massive blowout for the GOP this November.

and has got rich manipulating them,

No, real estate development, you need money to make money.

while driving even more wedges to further divide and weaken the US

That’s all on this administration that has done this to the nation.

It's already being reported that an insider at Mar-A-Lago tipped off the FBI that Trump LIED and kept additional classified information after saying he turned it all in Jan.

https://edition.cnn.com/2022/08/10/politics/mar-a-lago-search-informant-documents-donald-trump/index.html

So, wonder which "MAGA-hero, patriot, and freedom-lover" turned into a "disgusting lying rat"? Did Trump show McCarthy his stash during one of his groveling trips? How about neighbor Ron DeSantis? Maybe Ivanka - upset that Trump buried her mother on his golf course for a tax exemption? My money is on DeSantis...

And it was confirmed last Feb that Top Secret info was included in what Trump took - think of that - one of our highest levels of classification, one that if released could cause the gravest damage to our national security.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2022/02/10/trump-records-classified/

Trump and his attorneys have an inventory of every piece of paper that was taken - why haven't they released it proving their claims of a "witch hunt"? Maybe because they don't want to admit what the FBI found?

John Walker stole Top Secret and sold it to the Soviets - he was sentenced to life...

I'd be satisfied if Trump got half that...

You can bet donald doesn’t want to reveal that he is so hard up for cash , he is selling state secrets to pay the rent!

To “stop” a dictatorship from growing, there i changed it for you. But it should be a fresh breath and a sigh of relief to put out the flames of radical liberalism.

The mention of Nazis must please Trump's extremist right wing base 

Says the people who are gleeful that this administration hired 87,000 new IRS agents.

Trump allies are discussing the possibility of challenging DOJ's motion to unseal the Mar-a-Lago search warrant. They've contacted outside lawyers about helping them.

ROFL! Donald’s bluff is backfiring.

Get ready to eat your words Trump supporters....

*Attorney General Merrick Garland said Thursday that the Justice Department had filed a motion to unseal a search warrant and property receipt from the FBI’s recent search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. ** Garland announced the motion at a press conference, marking his first public statement about the matter since Trump publicly confirmed the search at his Florida residence on Monday evening.*

https://www.yahoo.com/news/justice-department-garland-mar-a-lago-fbi-search-warrant-trump-193638826.html

In the meantime, expect more overt attacks on our nation's law enforcement professionals - Trump supporters not only want to defund the police, they want to shoot them with assault weapons...and Trump incited them, just like he did with the violent insurrectionist mob on Jan 6th...

https://www.yahoo.com/gma/suspect-chased-trying-break-fbis-163100047.html

The sooner he is behind bars, the better...

Trump is broke and broken. Trump accused the FBI of searching Melania's drawers.

If Trump has nothing to hide, then he has nothing to worry about.

So why’s he so nervous?

11 ( +15 / -4 )

Trump allies are discussing the possibility of challenging DOJ's motion to unseal the Mar-a-Lago search warrant.

What is more important is the actual affidavit that spurred warrant now they are in serious damage control over a few papers. Even the most legal minds like Turley and Dershowitz are beyond concerned that the DOJ just crossed the line of no return.

They've contacted outside lawyers about helping them.

As they should, that helps Trump, bolsters his position even better.

ROFL! Donald’s bluff is backfiring.

If that we’re true, Trump would have been indicted years ago and they continue to fumble. All the left is doing is galvanizing the base in a much bigger way. Yeah, keep doing what you’re doing Garland, it helps us.

-18 ( +4 / -22 )

unseal it. That’s what they were looking for, not what they found.

if they were only looking for some documents that he already declassified himself, people are not impressed.

-15 ( +5 / -20 )

It doesn’t, it exposes his lies. One person has already died as a result.

The search happened last week, try keeping up!

Yeah the DOJ and the FBI are the victims in all of this, right?

unseal it. That’s what they were looking for, not what they found.

donald doesn’t think so, he knows what they found and it is really really bad!

10 ( +14 / -4 )

So what did they find?

-16 ( +4 / -20 )

I've heard Trump has state secrets in their, too. And he's trying to use them for personal gain, which is why he didbt hand them over before.

Any guesses who the buyers are?

5 ( +9 / -4 )

if they were only looking for some documents that he already declassified himself, people are not impressed.

Interesting. Did he though? People certainly won’t be impressed that he’s been trying to stifle the truth when there is no reason and he’s completely innocent. I mean, if the DOJ have better things they could be doing, why, if he is so innocent and has nothing to worry about, won’t he allow them to get on with it so they can move onto other investigations?

7 ( +11 / -4 )

He has the search warrant, he could show it any time he wants - but doesn't.

The court says the DOJ has to release it. That’s why there is a court order for 3pm Friday.

the fact that he was raided is the narrative.

“Must have been something!”

So they just keep the speculation going for 4 years about what they might have found? Then it’s just over and forgotten, as always.

-14 ( +4 / -18 )

Six years ago, Kevin McCarthy, then House majority leader, trashed Clinton’s judgment, and castigated her “total disregard for protecting and handling our nation’s highly classified secrets”. He also demanded an expeditious FBI investigation, together with a thorough and “transparent” briefing.

This whole incident is great for reminding the pubs that some of y'all screwed up with Hillary. You accused her, when she did nothing, now your arguments can all be used right back at you, now that Trump has done the very thing you pretended Hillary did. Whoops. Egg on your faces.

5 ( +11 / -6 )

"If they can do this to Trump, they can do this to anyone" whine the Pubs.

Um yeah, if there is probable cause to approve a search warrant, this should happen to anyone. No one should be above the law. Notice how only the extremists have a problem with law and order being applied to Trump?

5 ( +11 / -6 )

Oh no, now more people are going to be audited.

Wait! I’m confused, so I know the left hate the poor, but now they want to harass them even more?? Why?

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/irs-audit-eitc-five-times-as-likely-to-get-audited/

That's exactly what the Nazis were famous for, thorough auditing procedures.

Well, just when you thought the Democrats as a party couldn’t sink lower in the mud, here you go.

ROFL, apparently you didn’t understand. Garland will release the search warrant details and donald is sweating!!

I wasn’t talking about the warrant. Scroll back, I was specific.

It doesn’t, it exposes his lies.

What lies? Of course it bolsters him and the Republicans, go on Twitter, YouTube, 75% of Americans are not happy with the direction of the country and Biden is not helping nor his administration. Sorry, but the DOJ and the FBI have less than a clean image. That’s long, long gone.

One person has already died as a result.

Well, Kavanaugh almost came close to death and Wray and Garland were too busy with other issues to make him and his family a top priority concern.

The search happened last week, try keeping up!

Not me, tell Garland to show us the affidavit and the so called reason for this urgency to raid the former Presidents home.

-16 ( +4 / -20 )

That was a witch hunt by a weaponized DOJ, black.

-11 ( +4 / -15 )

While noting that "ethical obligations" prevented him detailing the basis of the raid, Garland said he had asked a Florida judge to unseal the warrant because Trump had publicly confirmed the search and because of the "substantial public interest in this matter."

Trump has until Friday to contest the request.

Clearly Trump wants to hide this information, or he would have released it himself.

I'm looking forward to it being released by Garland. Once again our pubs will be exposed for supporting anarchy and hating law and order and the constitution.

Yeah the DOJ and the FBI are the victims in all of this, right?

No. They are doing their job.

It’s not them whining.

I think I’ve heard the word unprecedented an unprecedented number of times in the past two days.

5 ( +9 / -4 )

The court says the DOJ has to release it. That’s why there is a court order for 3pm Friday.

Nope. That is not what the court said. Trump could release it at any time. He has until 3pm tomorrow to either allow or refuse to release the search warrant.

the fact that he was raided is the narrative.

You're right, it's just that- a nonsensical narrative. Trump wasn't raided, a search warrant was served.

She actually did a lot as far as classified material mishandling, it was proven.

Nothing illegal though, as determined by actual lawyers. It is funny, though, how the right wants to lock up Clinton (a political rival), whilst claiming serving Trump with a search warrant is an act of political retribution.

4 ( +8 / -4 )

And let's not forget, the person making this claim also believes Trump won in 2020.

I am not sure why you need to incessantly repeat that, but absolutely.

while calling for the jailing of their political opponents, even when their own team found that opponent innocent, out of the other.

So Trump is not the political opponent of the Dems? they seem to have no problem doing what you claim is "bad". and Hillary was definitely not found innocent of mishandling classified material. It was EVERYwhere.

The justice system just let it go, due to her being a political opponent, and fondness for her husband by saying its not reallllly a crime to have those documents. Same will apply to Trump based on that precedent, if they even found anything.

-14 ( +4 / -18 )

The court says the DOJ has to release it. That’s why there is a court order for 3pm Friday.

Trump could release it if he didn't want to hide it. But clearly he would prefer to hide it, or he would have already released it.

Hands up anyone (literally, anyone) who thinks such a person would have any credibility in regards to knowing what is actually happening in reality.

and by the way 70% of Republican believe Trump won. How many Republicans are there, probably 80-90 million?

Including all the candidates he has endorsed who have won their primaries at a 96% rate, they believe it too and won their election.

Its not some type of fringe belief like you think it is.

-12 ( +4 / -16 )

It’s not them whining.

Garland and Wray spent the whole press conference whining for them instead of talking about what they were looking for and did they find it.

-12 ( +4 / -16 )

And let's not forget, the person making this claim also believes Trump won in 2020.

I am not sure why you need to incessantly repeat that, but absolutely.

People should have context when they read your posts, to understand the kind of completely out of touch with reality crazy conspiracy theories you believe in.

I mean, when I know someone believes that Trump lost in 2020, it tells me right away that this person is either extremely limited in intelligence, to be able to believe something even though there is literally no evidence to support it other than a known liar blustering on about it for a long time, or they know he lost, and are nefariously pushing the big lie, which puts them as about as big a loser as exists in humanity.

Of course, it's up to others to decide if they agree with me or not, but they deserve the context, wouldn't you agree? Or do you have something to hide?

3 ( +9 / -6 )

So Trump is not the political opponent of the Dems?

Garland is independent of the party. How could it be a political attack? Biden doesn't even talk to him.

Oh dear, there I go destroying your narrative with reality again. My bad.

5 ( +11 / -6 )

The justice system just let it go, due to her being a political opponent

No, the Republican-led select committe found her entirely innocent.

If the Justice Department were to press charges after the investigation found her entirely innocent, that would be a witchhunt. You guys claim to hate witch hunts out of one side of your mouths, while pushing for them out of the other.

Some of y'all forgot you done wrong by Hillary and now it's coming back to haunt you.

The only reason Mr. Trump wants to keep the contents of the search warrant and the receipt of material sealed is that their release will conclusively disprove all the wild claims he has made regarding the FBI, Department of Justice and Attorney General. By asking the judge to unseal these documents Mr. Garland is calling Mr. Trump's bluff. Until the past few days I had thought Mr. Garland to be unnecessarily timid. I am having to reassess my opinion of him now.

Notice how none of our pub posters can answer the question as to why Trump wants to hide the contents of the search warrant?

Garland and Wray spent the whole press conference whining for them instead of talking about what they were looking for and did they find it.

The warrant and receipt documents are currently sealed. That is the norm to protect the investigation from being compromised until an indictment is issued. However in this case Mr. Garland has requested the Judge in Florida unseal them. That will answer many questions, answers that will immediately and conclusively disprove the nonsense coming from Republicans and supporters of Mr. Trump.

U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland said Thursday he had "personally approved" the dramatic raid on Donald Trump's Florida home

Obama nominated Garland to the Supreme Court but the Republican senate majority refused to vote on it. Then Biden nominated Garland to the attorney general office.

"I personally approved the decision to seek a search warrant," Garland told reporters.

We can see why.

While noting that "ethical obligations" prevented him detailing the basis of the raid, 

Ethical obligations!

 The search warrant was authorized by a federal court upon the required finding of probable cause."

can you point me to any report or legal or law enforcement document that confirms what happened as a coup?

Hours and hours and hours of Republican testimony during the January 6th hearings.

Just because they scare you too much to watch, doesn't change the reality they laid out with evidence, fact, Republican testimony, and you're personal allergy, reality.

"FBI searched Trump’s home to look for nuclear documents and other items, sources say"

Did they find any? or is the "look for" the narrative.

What if they didnt find any, is it just a "my bad" type thing and you just move on?

Right wingers didn't denounce the FBI doing its diligence on Hillary email exposure, timed poorly for her and the democrats just prior to the 2016 election.

They do denounce Mar-a-Lago, again the FBI doing its diligence.

The hypocrisy and lies are the MO of conservatives. It is pathetic.

Trump can answer that question, as he has a list of the inventory of what was taken.

Why is he hiding it? What is it about the truth being exposed that he is scared of?

which likely says "12 boxes of documents", right?

The DOJ will release it by 3pm tomorrow for all of us to see.

Wrong. Trump had until 3pm tomorrow to respond to their request to unseal.

An insider at Mar-A-Lago tips off the FBI that Trump kept additional classified information, beyond what he said he turned in last Jan, which means 1) he lied when he said he turned it all in, and 2) continued to keep classified information, up to Top Secret, insecure in his closet…

The FBI then secures a search warrant from a federal judge (appointed by Trump) who concurs there is probably cause for a search. The FBI conducts the search and uncovers 12 additional boxes of evidence…

Trump and his Repub cronies immediately scream "witch hunt" and demand the search warrant and inventory list of property seized be released, even though they have copies of both documents and could release them at any time. Fox News goes into meltdown with all the nighttime hosts denigrating the FBI. The MAGA-masses in Congress say it’s all political and Marjory Taylor Greene wants to defund the FBI…

Today Garland calls their bluff and files a motion to release the warrant and list of items seized….AND TRUMP AND HIS ATTORNEYS ALL GO WAIT, WAIT, WAIT!…

Why?  Because they know what documents were taken - and we now know too - it is our nation's most sensitive nuclear-related materiel….Top Secret info on our nuclear weapons and nuclear strategy…info Russia, China, and Iran would pay anything for…

And the big question - what was Trump going to do with this extremely sensitive info? Who was he holding it for or going to share or sell to?

This case just turned into one of the biggest espionage and national security breaches in our nation’s history…

And the subject at the center of this criminal investigation is Donald J. Trump…

Any attempted coups recently by the people who believe said conspiracy theories? Hmm?

no there havent been. no attempted coups that I am aware of.

Haven't been following the Jan 6 committee, then? Trump was attempting a coup with fake electors and then trying to persuade Pence to throw out the slates of electors on Jan 6. When that didn't work, the plan went to insurrection on the Capitol.

according to Blacklabel, no one has been. Just a big bore that no one cares about.

This is free publicity for DJT and he knows it.

Trump won in 2016 because he was constantly on the free pages and the nightly news, often in a negative light.

Keep talking about Trump and keep him front and center in the media.

Throughout this whole saga, Trump has underestimated Merrick Garland. Now it's up to Trump to allow the public to see the search warrant and inventory of what was seized.

Some things are fairly consistent with Trump.

In Jan, he incites his crowd of far-right extremists; Proud Boys, Three Percenters, Oath Keepers, who then stage a violent insurrection attempt at our nation's Capitol, injuring over 140 police officers.

Now in Aug, he incites this same crowd with rants about the search of Mar-A-Lago being a "witch hunt", one of whom then takes an assault rifle to the FBI office in Cincinnati, makes threats, leaves, then opens fire on the Ohio State Patrol.

why did Trump have nuclear documents? he had nuclear documents! guilty! guilty! then FBI and DOJ got him!

ummm second paragraph:

"It was not clear if such documents were recovered at the former president's Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, the Post said. Reuters could not immediately confirm the report."

So what they are looking for is one thing, what they found (an empty safe) is another.

We already ready went through that. 

Trump has underestimated Merrick Garland. Now it's up to Trump to allow the public to see the search warrant and inventory of what was seized.

No, that wouldn't mean anything, what we need to see is the actual affidavit then and only then can we truly see the reason for the raid, who ordered it and what was requested, that is what we need to see because based on that would be the reason for issuing a warrant.

U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland said Thursday he had "personally approved" the dramatic raid on Donald Trump's Florida home

Obama nominated Garland to the Supreme Court but the Republican senate majority refused to vote on it. Then Biden nominated Garland to the attorney general office.

"I personally approved the decision to seek a search warrant," Garland told reporters.

We can see why.

While noting that "ethical obligations" prevented him detailing the basis of the raid, 

Ethical obligations!

 The search warrant was authorized by a federal court upon the required finding of probable cause."

You neglected to mention judge is Trump nominated and in Palm Beach, you know, where Trump lives
