FBI Raids Mar-A-Lago

| August 8, 2022


Trump’s Mar-A-Lago, Palm Beach FL

In a stunning development, the FBI executed a search warrant on former President Trump’s home in Florida on Monday. It was neither immediately clear what evidence was gathered during the search, nor what convinced a Federal Judge to issue the search warrant in the first place.

FBI Raids Former President Donald Trump’s Home

JORDAN DIXON-HAMILTON

Former President Donald Trump’s Florida home, Mar-A-Lago, was raided by FBI agents, Trump announced in a statement on Monday.

“These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar- A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” Trump said. “Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before.”

Trump noted his previous cooperation with law enforcement and called the FBI raid of his home “prosecutorial misconduct.” Trump also said it is an example of “the weaponization of the Justice System who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024.”

Breitbart

This is an act of desperation. It’s nothing more than a preemptive coup and is extraordinarily dangerous.

Is this really how you see this pathetic clown?

You are betting on the wrong horse. After the race. When the horse is already being loaded onto the trailer. For his trip to the glue factory.

Also, the horse is a narcissistic clown that tried to overthrow an election and install himself as a despot.

Go play in street.

Didn’t you say you were never coming back here?

You’re a fraud and a disgrace to the uniform you wore purely for employment. Zero pride in your country — jobless socialist fuck.

Commissar

I think I said “ it was a mistake to come back”.

Ukraine was invaded by Russia and several nitwits here were literally regurgitating Russian propaganda narratives. It literally took months for some of you to be weened off Putin’s tits. A few are still quietly suckling.

It genuinely disgusted me.

This place was already far right of center when I got here years ago, but it has gone off the deep end into crackpot right wing hysteria, fascist curious rhetoric, cult-like simping for a narcissistic grifter clown, and occasionally sharing both Russian and Chinese propaganda.

Many here also openly supported overthrowing an election and installing a despot.

There is no rational, informed, or open minded discourse here.

LC is one of the most rational, patient, and informed people I have met on the internet….

And he gets mindlessly downvoted nearly every post by the the same gaggle of mouth droolers.

I still think it is a mistake to be here.

SFC D

Then perhaps you should leave.

SFC D

LC is respected here because he has the ability to present an opposing view using things like facts, logic, common sense, and some respect for those who don’t share his viewpoint. I don’t always agree with him but I like to hear his view.

None of that applies to you.

Commissar

Respected? Perhaps.

He still gets overwhelmingly downvoted.

Says a lot about how little you guys actually respect facts, logic, and common sense,

SFC D

Produce some facts, logic and common sense sometime. You’ve dug yourself a pretty deep credibility hole here, and been extremely nasty to people while doing it. It makes anything and everything you say questionable. Unlike what your lord and savior Obama said, you built that. Enjoy the fruits of your labor.

And Hunter Biden seems to not have a care in the world either. Funny how the upside down world works.

How is that relevant to Trump being raided?

Oh, wait…it is not. Smoke and mirrors by right wing propagandists.

SFC D

It’s called hypocrisy and selective enforcement. Liberals are really good at it.

Hack Stone

How is it relevant to Trump getting raided? Are you that far deep in hating all things Trump. Hillary Clinton transmitted classified information on a private server, destroyed emails that she decided that the investigations didn’t get to see, removed classification markings on government documents, and she set the tees when she and her lawyers would arrive at the FBI to be interviewed. Despite all of that, the FBI Director said “Yeah, she violated all kinds of government regulations pertains to handling classified information, but no reasonable prosecutor would pursue charges.”

No double standards there.

Commissar

Hunter is not as insulated as you think he is.

It’s about the FBI and DOJ doing their job. something they utterly failed to do with Hillary and Hunter. They fact that you are too blinded by partisan politics to see this says far more about you than anyone else on this board.

Commissar

More whataboutisms concerning a retired grandmother.

That all you have at this point?

She should have been charged with at least misdemeanor mishandling, and public records violations, but it was an unclassified server.

This dipshit took boxes of highly classified information as PART of a damn coverup of his criminal activity.

Deckie

Didn’t you say you were never coming back here?

Enjoy the ghetto. You’re never getting out of it.

SFC D

An unclassified server carrying classified traffic. Classified traffic with the classification markings removed. Classified traffic that couldn’t even be shown to the congressional investigators because they weren’t cleared that high. You’re supposedly an intel type with understandings of classified networks. Explain to me how classified traffic migrated itself from SIPR to Hillary’s unclassified server. Then you can explain how it got to Houma Abedin’s printer, where the maid recovered it. Take your time, I’ll wait.

Fyrfighter

An unclassified server with CLASSIFIED documents on it. Do you pay attention to tanything?

And yet sandy berger gets caught stuffing highly classified documents into his pants and smuggling them out of the National Archives. But, he was never charged.

Ok I will play.That fucking twatwaffle is not some “retired grandmother” but one of the most evil beings to ever walk the earth. The rest of us who have security clearances would not have been cut a break like she got.

As for the orange guy I am not a huge fan but he is better that the current clown in office. Highly classified? Were you on the raid or part of the investigation? The raid happened last night how the hell would you know what may have been there or not.

Hack Stone

Have you ever had a security clearance? Hillary Clinton violated every step of handling classified information, destroyed evidence, and not only did she not get charged, she ran for President. Do you think anyone else would coast on those charges?

And the Secret Service detail was out doing what, getting blow jobs or something?

LC

What should they have done? Are you expecting them to get into a shootout with FBI agents acting on a lawful search warrant?

Av8or33

No but I doubt the warrant was legal! Kinda like the FISA warrants. Politically motivated, 3rd world suppression of a possible opposition candidate they fear may win. Disgusting.

Commissar

The warrant was legal.

And Trump will have the opportunity to challenge the warrant in court. If it was illegal the evidence will be suppressed.

But the warrant was legal. This was likely the most carefully crafted warrant with the most vetted and verified probable cause in the history of warrants.

“Crafted is an accurate statement “ Lars is getting a boner over the coming police state and needs to say I told you so to blow a load.

Fyrfighter

Commissar

What did you expect them to do?

Protecting the president does not mean be complicit in his crimes.

The secret service has a cultural failure with so many agents already complicit in potential crimes and coverups.

Are you upset they didn’t commit more crimes to impede an investigation into Trump’s crimes?

LC

This is an act of desperation. It’s nothing more than a preemptive coup and is extraordinarily dangerous.

Yeaaaaah…. I’m going to wait and see here. But I’m tickled that you think this is a ‘preemptive queue’, and that that’s extraordinarily dangerous, but an actual attempted coup makes you yawn, AW1Ed. 😉

LC

As I said, let’s wait and see. I certainly have confidence in the government’s ability to fuck this up, sure. I also have known Trump to be a conman long before he entered the national consciousness as a politician, so I could see the law finally catch up with him.

What would be absolutely ridiculous is if the official reason is true, and this is all about confidential documents. For the Left, that’s such a pathetic end to a saga – it’s like going on a long treasure hunt, recovering a chest from an old wreck, opening it up, and finding $5. For the Right, who chanted “Lock Her Up!” ceaselessly during the 2016 election and beyond for Clinton’s mishandling of classified material, it’d be deliciously ironic to see Trump indicted on the exact same thing.

And while Trump is definitely overweight, ‘giant’ is hurtful, Ed. Have some courtesy, Large, maybe, but giant is just a bridge too far.

26Limabeans

Yeah, lets wait and see what they planted.

SFC D

If Trump were to be indicted for mishandling of classified material and Hillary still is not, the entire process is called into question from DOJ on down. That’s some pretty selective investigation.

After all the stupid shit the left has thrown at him, all the made up scandals,and personal attacks you still got nothing. So let’s try some 3rd world stunt and give it another go. The left doesn’t get it all this crap makes him more popular and stronger. The left is basically the weird kid in high school that always ran to the teachers and ratted on people for making fun of him and then couldn’t understand why no one liked him and he couldn’t get laid. Was that you Lars, get picked on and still holding a grudge against the popular kids?

Please get off your high horse.

I’m sorry that you’re an angry pseudo academic with limited experience in the real world. I come from very humble beginnings and have done well as have my brothers, I despise the way our country is headed under the leftist ideology. Socialist policies hurt the people who work hard and make good decisions, I owe slackers a angry pseudo academics nothing. Get a job!! Contribute to society!! Amazing that socialists and communists claim to represent the working class but seldom ever join them. Trump gave people opportunities you’re a perpetual victim that is angry he’s left behind in spite of his perceived value.

“…nor what convinced a Federal Judge to issue the search warrant…” I’ll go out on a limb here and say his (hers/its?) handlers did. Those of us that are/have been in the LEO or lawer business well know the term “Tame Judge”.

Shit getting real close to getting real. Prepare…if you aren’t already.

And, btw, LC, if you think all of that teh stoopidity that happened on 6 Jan was an attempted insurrection then you need to read a history book, Sir. May your chains rest lightly.

Roh-Dog

“Prepare…if you aren’t already.” x1,000!!!

The machine will do anything and everything to protect itself, of this I have nary a doubt.

We the People are witness to the greatest failure in history, and before I get a smart ass civilian or commie in my ass, I’m referring to the system in toto not just this great unpleasantness.

LC

The plan was quite clearly to ‘question’ the vote tallies from some states, or delay the certification entirely, turn it over to the states, and have the states -more red ones, remember?- declare Trump the victor.

Do you not recall when Grassley accidentally Tweeted that he “didn’t expect Pence” to be present for his duties? Or did you not read the Eastman memos?

That’s a coup, yes. A bloodless one, but a coup. Not an ‘insurrection’, as I’ve said here before, and people who call it such do a disservice to the reality of it… but it was definitely an attempted coup.

How about instead of reading history and focusing on the red herring of violence and look instead at what the people involved were doing? Some day, that’ll be history too. Consider it just getting a head start, KoB.

Av8or33

After all the insanity the democrat party has heaped on us, all the made up scandals and outright lies they have fed us do you really think that election was above board? And while I certainly don’t approve of the idiots of Jan 6 it’s far from a coup or insurrection especially in light of the actual insurrection the left allowed and supported during the “summer of love”. Take a hard honest look at where we are heading and as yourself if this is the country you want to live in. The United States most of us grew up in wasn’t perfect but where we are heading is absolutely dystopian.

rgr769

The DC office of the FIB ran the raid, so it is highly likely that one of those corrupt District of Criminals judges signed the warrant, likely one of those in on Gen. Flynn’s kangaroo court proceedings.

As far as the ElCee is concerned, he wouldn’t know what an insurrection is because he never served in the military and is a merely verbose moron who cares little for this republic. Unlike the rest of us, he has never taken the oath to support the Constitution.

Av8or33

This is just another disgusting display of the rot destroying our country. Democrats feel that they have to disqualify President Trump from running again. They have been throwing shit against the wall since he announced he was first running, all they have accomplished is making many of us realize the destructive and deceitful nature of the dems and rinos that have been selling us out for decades. I’ve always been a patriotic American but I can’t even put up the flag at the house anymore and I’m ashamed of what the left has turned our country into. I truly pray that patriots can take control over the next elections and put the people responsible in jail, but I’m not holding my breath.

That statute is not applicable. Only the Constitution sets eligibility for the Office of President. SCOTUS has clearly confirmed that other disqualifying eligibility items cannot be added where the Constitution speaks to the topic. Some attempts at on-the-ballot eligibility were voided for that reason.

Neither Clinton nor Trump, nor anyone else, can be disqualified if they meet the Constitutional requirements.

From Carl Sagan’s 1995 book
THE DEMON-HAUNTED WORLD
Not explaining science seems to me perverse. When you’re in love, you want to tell the world. This book is a personal statement, reflecting my lifelong love affair with science.
But there’s another reason: science is more than a body of knowledge; it is a way of thinking. 1 have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or grandchildren’s time – when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers arc in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, continued

Cummins

unable to distinguish between what feels good and what’s true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness. The dumbing down of America is most evident in the slow decay of substantive content in the enormously influential media, the 30-second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), lowest common denominator programming, credulous presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but especially a kind of celebration of ignorance.

The Stranger

Sagan had a reputation for being a bit of a know it all and kind of arrogant, but when he was right, he was right. I seem to remember a science fiction short story of a society where the “priesthood” basically consisted of scientists and engineers who dressed up their technical knowledge in superstitious mumbo-jumbo for consumption by the “masses”. And, if I’m misremembering due to my prodigious intake of alcohol in my youth, maybe I’ll write the fucking thing.

Commissar

He was appointed to the bench by Donald Trump.

Maybe you should ask yourself why Trump was appointing former Epstein employees to the bench?

And he is one of three federal judges for the Southern District of Florida. Because of Mar A Lago’s location we can assume it was a judge there that signed the warrant.

But I don’t think we know for sure which judge yet.

SFC D

“But I don’t think we know for sure which judge yet”.

He is not a federal judge. He was not appointed by Trump or any president. Bruce Reinhardt is a magistrate judge, not appointed by POTUS, not confirmed by the Senate. Magistrate judges sign off on nearly all federal warrants, but don’t you find it odd that a warrant involving a former President was signed at such a low level?

Maybe you should ask yourself why you spew incorrect information with such certainty. The only thing certain is that you don’t know Jack.

Trump lost the popular vote, twice.

And he is less popular by the week.

His supporters, given their age and actuary tables…die off at a rate of a few thousand more per week than those that vote against him… and he sing gaining new supporters in any real numbers.

While he drives turnout for his cult that makes up about 28%-35% of the population…he also drives turnout for those that vote against him.

Trump being on the ballot in 2024 would be a windfall for Dems.

How can anyone with a work ethic, and ambition ever support this socialist bullshit. Socialism is the ideology of losers and slackers that can’t compete in the real world. Also many young people are ambitious and productive they are not looking for hand outs or victim status, as with adults the sheep are losers and slackers.

“White House Economic Adviser Won’t Say If 87,000 New IRS Agents Will Audit Those Making Under $400,000”

https://www.foxnews.com/media/white-house-economic-adviser-wont-say-87000-new-irs-agents-will-audit-making-under-400000

“White House economic adviser Jared Bernstein appeared on CNBC’s Squawk Box Monday and was interviewed by host Brian Sullivan, who questioned him about the impact the Inflation Reduction Act will have on taxpayers.”

“I want to be clear, is the president guaranteeing nobody making under $400,000 will be audited [by the new agents]?” asked Sullivan.”

“No, no, no. That’s not what I said. Nobody making under $400,000 will pay higher taxes under the Inflation Reduction Act,” Bernstein said.”

“Ifthey are doubling the size of the IRS then who are they gonna go after?” asked Sullivan, while also mentioning small businesses.”

“Bernstein did not answer the question regarding who the extra IRS agents would audit…”

“Whistleblower LEAKS Bureau’s ‘Domestic Terrorism Symbols Guide’ on ‘Militia Violent Extremists’ Citing Ashli Babbitt as MVE Martyr”

https://www.projectveritas.com/news/fbi-whistleblower-leaks-bureaus-domestic-terrorism-symbols-guide-on-militia/

“Project Veritas released a newly leaked document today provided by an FBI whistleblower, which shows how the Bureau classifies American citizens it deems to be potential “Militia Violent Extremists” [MVEs].”

“In the document, the FBI cites symbols, images, phrases, events, and individuals that agents should look out for when identifying alleged domestic terrorists.”

*Continue*

ninja

“Of note, under the “Symbols” section, is a prominent citation of the Second Amendment, where it explains that “MVEs justify their existence with the Second Amendment, due to the mention of a ‘well regulated Militia,’ as well as the right to bear arms.”

“Right below that, under the “Commonly Referenced Historical Imagery and Quotes” section, Revolutionary War images such as the Gadsden Flag and the Betsy Ross Flag are listed. Each flag displayed in the document comes with a brief description of what it means.”

“Under the “Common Phrases and References” section of the leaked document, Ashli Babbitt is cited as a person that MVEs consider to be a Martyr”

“The same document also refers to Ruby Ridge, Waco, and even Timothy McVeigh, tying in traditional American ideas and symbols with radical and/or violent events in the past.”

For Commissar and LC:

Points brought up by Mike Lee, a Lawyer, former Federal Prosecutor, and current member of the Senate Judiciary Committee:

Did Attorney General Garland personally sign off of this action?

Why break into the safe rather than seize it, take it into custody, and then seek a warrant to open it?

Why obtain and execute a search warrant rather than first seeking the items in question either through an informal process or with a subpoena?

“Perhaps there’s something here we don’t know—something that, once known, will clarify the reasons for the raid. If there is, FBI needs to bring forward the justification for this unprecedented action—as soon as possible. But if there isn’t, we’ve got problems at the FBI.

“Classification authority belongs to the president of the United States — and NOT to bureaucrats at the National Archives.”

*Continue*

ninja

If this turns out to be the product of the growing political weaponization of federal law enforcement agencies, shouldn’t this incident cause all Americans to be even more outraged by the Democrats’ plan to hire an additional 87,000 agents?

How is this aggressive action defensible in light of the FBI/DOJ treatment of Hillary Clinton, who was never subjected to a raid like this, even though she (1) mishandled classified material, and (2) destroyed evidence?

What should we make of the fact that this is occurring while FBI and DOJ have taken no discernible action regarding (for example) flagrant violations of the law by (a) Hunter Biden, or (b) pro-abortion extremists threatening Supreme Court justices at their homes?

Why should we assume that the FBI is above targeting Republicans when it creates documents like this one, which encourages agents to be suspicious of people who display the Betsy Ross Flag or the “don’t tread on me” Gadsden Flag?

Shouldn’t all Americans be suspicious of the FBI based on its use of warrantless “backdoor searches” under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (about which Christopher Wray expressed very little concern when I questioned him at last week’s hearing)?

Honestly Ninja, I think LC still believes that the democrats and conservatives just have different viewpoints, instead of realizing that the democrat party is truly out to destroy this nation, and turn it into a socialist / communist dictatorship.
Commissar on the other hand understands this all too well, he just supports it.

LC

I don’t believe that Democrats are out to turn things into a socialist / communist dictatorship, no. Just as I frustrate my more left-wing friends by not believing that conservatives want to turn the US into a dystopian theocracy.

On certain issues I agree with one side more than the other; by painting many tens of millions of Americans, or one of our two parties, as ‘pure evil’, we do a disservice to our country and our humanity.

Let me give one example that I was going to reply to above – I’m a proponent of single-payer health care. Not because I want some kind of crazy ‘socialist dictatorship’, but because I saw how my cancer tied me unfairly to an old employer when I was younger. I had to wait years to move jobs, else any resurgence in it would’ve not been covered, and I’d owe some $500K out of pocket for treatment. When the ‘preexisting condition’ window closed, I was able to have job mobility again, without potentially going bankrupt or dying.

LC

(con’t)

No desire for some dictatorship in there, just personal freedom ensured by moving away from an archaic and weird system that ties healthcare to a provider, and thus tethers people to it when dealing with life-threatening things.

I want others to have that freedom to change jobs too – that’s freedom and capitalism together, in fact. Greater mobility ensures people take jobs offering the greatest benefits, right? So how is that wanting ‘socialism / communism / dictatorship’?

Again, for me it’s freedom. That you’re conditioned to see it differently -because, yes, it may mean perfectly healthy you pays more in taxes, although other countries would disagree there- doesn’t mean I’m not arguing for freedom from a different angle than you are.

Fyrfighter

LC,
We obviously see the current state and goals.of the Democrat party differently, and that’s OK. To be clear, I was not saying that everyone who identifies as a Democrat thinks that way, just that the party, ( see AOC, Talib, Pressley, et al), and far too many of the rank and file do.
As to the Healthcare situation, since that seems to be directed at me, it might surprise you to know that I agree that our old system of tying Healthcare to an employer is outdated and needs to be changed. Where we differ is rhe solution. I tend to believe that more government is rarely, if ever the solution, so I instead prefer that all people have the right to buy whatever policy suits their needs, from whatever company meets their.needs, for whatever price they prefer and the market allows, regardless of state lines, etc. I would include a safety net for those UNABLE to work/ afford a policy ( NOT for those who choose not to work, but rather rely on govt for everything) I also COMPLETELY reject

The idea that ANY American should pay a single dime for those here illegally period, full stop, no exceptions. Immigration should be handled as it used ro be, with those wanting to come here having to prove that they will not be a drain on society, instead of just coming for the free shit..

That odd health care situation you dont like is yet another Progressive “improvenent”. The FDR admin set price controls on labor during WW2. Perks, and benefits such as health care, became the work-around to continue the essential price signaling and bidding.

Add layer upon layer of “progressive” meddling, and you get to the current mess.

No one -owes- you, me, or anyone else health care.

LC

There’s a lot of questions here and I’m short on time, unfortunately, so let me just give my take on two of these questions:

Why obtain and execute a search warrant rather than first seeking the items in question either through an informal process or with a subpoena?

I … don’t know? I mean, on the face of things, if this is about NARA and classified material, the former President’s lawyers have already been in discussion with them for months, I believe. They must’ve felt that was not progressing and, surely, had decent evidence to get said warrant, which was signed off on not by Biden, but Trump’s own appointee to the FBI and a Trump-appointed judge.

Now, some can rail about the ‘deep state’ and how those lifelong Republicans are secretly RINOs or something.. but that’s been the standing complaint of anyone who disagrees with Trump for a while now. I’m inclined to think a more reasonable perspective is, simply, “We don’t know yet. But will know more soon.”

LC

As for Clinton, she was investigated, and arguably the FBI announcements right before the 2016 elections changed the course of them. That she wasn’t charged seems to get to intent, per both the State IG and FBI — and maybe that’ll apply to Trump too, we’ll see. If I turn it around and say why did she have to testify, under oath, to Congress, for hours on end about things and Trump did not, I can play the ‘so unfair!’ card too. And I despise Clinton.

The better question to ask is one of principle – if DJT knowingly mishandled classified material, shouldn’t he be held responsible? If you wanted this so badly in one case, shouldn’t you want it in another? The fact that I can get a ticket for speeding while someone else does not doesn’t somehow invalidate that I was, in fact, speeding.

Justice is never perfect, but if evidence of a crime here exists, Trump should suffer the consequences. If not, he should be exonerated. Do you agree with that?

PNW ATC

That is very reasonable. Applying laws to everyone equally seems like a pipe dream at this present time. I miss the time when both sides could at least agree to disagree and be civil.

poetrooper

“If I turn it around and say why did she have to testify, under oath, to Congress, for hours on end about things and Trump did not…”

There you go again with the false equivalencies. Clinton was not the head of state so the rules for testifying to Congress are different, which you should know.

However, it is fair to turn the argument around and ask why Clinton gets off and Trump doesn’t because, under the law and by custom, greater protections and immunities are afforded the chief of state than the secretary of state.

Sorry to hear about your cancer and glad you beat it.  👍

Because there’s zero “shock value” or “Orange man bad!” headlines to be made by doing it that way. And that’s all that matters. The truth is a by-product.
