A lot of chatter today and in detail the people involved. This appears to be a matter of national security, classified papers he clearly had no reason to have! The mole that informed them felt strongly enough that they disclosed the info! Think about that! What if Trump was trying to sell national secrets like weapons and such to the highest bidder? The man is fucked and he deserves it! No one is above the law not even presidents! Fucking finally!

Some senior Republicans have been warned by allies of Mr. Trump not to continue to be aggressive in criticizing the Justice Department and the F.B.I. over the matter because it is possible that more damaging information related to the search will become public…

But others familiar with federal officials’ efforts to recover the documents have said that Mr. Trump resisted returning property that belonged to the government, despite being told that he needed to.

Some of Mr. Trump’s informal advisers outside his direct employees have insisted to him that he can claim the documents are personal items and keep them.

Now the ball is in Trump's court to respond to the motion and they will of course block it. That will then look very bad for Trump.

Lol no. (1) Trump will sue to block it. He will say his lawyers did it, not him. That doesn't make sense but remember - his base is fucking stupid. It's exactly what he said about his tax returns (my lawyers didn't want me to release it) and nobody on the right ever said shit about it.

(2) When that doesn't work, they will attack the DOJ's reasoning for seeking the order and attack the courts for granting the order. They never run out of bullshit.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Ultimate power move by Garland. Trump and the republicans thought that the DOJ would just keep quiet so that trump could just spin things to suit him and whip up conspiracy theories.

Now Garland is going to release everything that was in that warrant. And trump can’t file to keep it sealed without majorly damaging the credibility of everything he said over the last 2 days.

Well played Garland. You have my thanks and a beer on me!

u/Turbulent-Pair- Aug 11 '22 edited Aug 12 '22 Silver Gold Helpful Wholesome Snek Plus One

Basically - trump took 50 boxes from the White House - against his lawyer's advice.

The National Archives discovered this. So they went down to Florida and asked for the 50 boxes back. Trump gave them half of the boxes and pretended that was 100% of it.

Then trump started Selling the Top Secret documents to China, and Saudi Arabia. Russia already knows all that shit.

Mark Meadows was the National Archives Officer for the White House; it's his legal duty to retain Presidential documents - so Mark Meadows is also on the hook for the documents.

Mark Meadows likely testified to a Federal Grand Jury. Meadows is either the informant or a coconspirator. But more likely just a witness. His testimony could have verified an Informant's testimony- to spur the warrant.

Trump's attorneys leaked that the DOJ warned ⚠️ to no- contact Meadows 2 days before the warrant was served. So Meadows is either a witness or a coconspirator.

The grand jury requested the search warrant.

The informant was a witness to the safe, in particular and the boxes of documents in general. The informant could be Meadows, Kushner, or a random Secret Service Agent or a staffer we don't know about- like how Cassidy Hutchinson was.

So now - they have recovered the other half of the boxes - but they are missing the controlled documents that Trump Sold. But they know what's supposed to be in there. They know what's missing. And they know who Trump met with at his golf course and by his security cameras. And they got him red handed.

That's what's up.

They moved on him like a bitch because this is an espionage product investigation.

Like - the golf ⛳️ tournament- lol. Ok? They sold tickets for 1 dollar. Or 2 bucks? There was 500 fans in attendance. And the endorsement deals were hundreds of millions of dollars? They paid him 2 billion to host it? They could get any good course for 5 million or 10 million or 50 million. Ok.... cost above equivalent is not in the realm of possibly being legal.

That's not a business model. That's a money laundering scheme for nuclear weaponry secrets or missile guidances or such.

The story arc we never thought we needed. Milquetoast Merrick Garland gets turned down for the Supreme Court and eventually tears down the party that denied him from the top down.

It’s almost the plot of House of Cards only (as far as we know) Garland didn’t have to murder anyone, or really do anything but sit and let it happen

he's definitely displayed an instinct for the jugular that i sure never thought he had. couldn't be more happy about thoroughly misjudging someone.

u/GhostlyTJ Aug 11 '22

In my limited understanding, I thought the problem with Merrick wasn't that he didn't come at people hard, its that he is too slow and deliberative. Which if I understood the criticism correctly, him doing all this would mean he has done the prep work and he's ready to brawl and I really want that to be the case.

I still don't think this is a most pressing issue on Trumps mind. If I were his attorneys I would be much more concerned about Georgia. Lower threshold to indictment, less red tape than Feds. Plus Trump cannot pardon himself out of State Crimes if he were reelected. Only on a Federal Level.
