Looks like the FBI wants another raid

Reuters reported, "Former U.S. President Donald Trump's team may not have returned all the classified records removed from the White House at the end of his presidency even after an FBI search of his home, U.S. prosecutors warned on Thursday, calling it a potential national security risk that needs investigation.

"That revelation came in a Justice Department court filing asking U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon to let it continue reviewing about 100 classified records seized by the FBI at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate while it investigates whether classified documents were illegally removed from the White House and improperly stored there.

"Trump is under investigation for retaining government records, some of which were marked as highly classified, at the resort in Palm Beach, Florida, his home after leaving office in January 2021."

None of the material was classified.

President Trump declassified the material before shipping it to Mar-a-Lago. The commander-in-chief can declassify anything he wants.

But the media cares not about facts. The narrative is everything. The narrative now is that Trump stole nuclear codes to sell to Putin, according to Matt Drudge.

This is a goofy narrative and a dangerous one because so many people believe it.

But surely you do not expect the truth from a media that was OK with Obama using the FBI to spy on Trump. Russiagate was the cover story. The media gave itself Pulitzers for peddling that lie.

The Reuters story, though, is an admission that the FBI failed to get incriminating evidence of any crime.

Oh sure, the FBI took 1,693 newspapers, magazines and assorted clippings. And the FBI said it had empty folders marked CLASSIFIED and the like.

The full list of items taken is here.

But the FBI's claim that Trump still has classified records reveals Biden's Bureau failed to get enough evidence to indict.

Oh, they got a lot of things. Clothing. Gifts. Photographs. These are all things that one could use in a presidential library. The National Archive bureaucracy wants the stuff for itself. The two sides have negotiated this little turf war. The director of the National Archive retired in May and now we have a full-blown constitutional crisis thanks to the new director, Biden and the FBI.

The raid on Mar-a-Lago found nothing just like the Mueller witch hunt found nothing just like the first impeachment and second impeachment found nothing.

But the media keeps smearing Donald Trump while ignoring the millions of foreign bribes Biden raked in through his son, his daughter and his brother.

The media sees nothing wrong with the FBI raiding a former president's home. The news reports drench with presumption of guilt.

AP said, "U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon is facing sharp criticism following her decision this week to grant a request by former President Donald Trump’s legal team for an independent arbiter to review documents obtained during an FBI search of his Florida property last month.

"Cannon on Monday authorized an outside legal expert to review the records taken during the Aug. 8 search of Mar-a-Lago as part of a probe into Trump’s inappropriate retention of sensitive material from the White House. The expert would have power to weed out any material that might be protected by claims of attorney-client privilege or executive privilege.

"The order came over the strenuous objections of the Justice Department, which said a so-called special master was not necessary in part because officials had already completed their review of potentially privileged documents.

"The move was cheered by Trump supporters seeking a check on the government’s probe. But others say Cannon gave undue deference to the former president and unnecessarily put on hold certain investigative work by the Justice Department. They say she has slowed the momentum of the federal investigation into possible Espionage Act violations."  

Bullshit.

AP stated as a fact " Trump’s inappropriate retention of sensitive material from the White House."

In Britain, AP would have to prove that allegation in court or pay a hefty fine and apologize.

The rule of law applies to Donald Trump and the court must protect his rights. The FBI took whatever the hell it wanted and the judge wants an objective person to comb through the 15 boxes of empty folders and the like to see what the FBI can have and what it may not have.

Frankly, the judge is doing the FBI a favor because the way the way the raid went down, if there were any evidence, the trial judge would have to throw the evidence out because the FBI failed to allow Trump's lawyer to see what the agents were taking.

By saying Trump still has stuff, the FBI admits it does not have a damned thing on him. Biden wants to raid him again, Sam.

  1. I am sure the FBI is still reviewing documents even though they were ordered not to. And they have copies of everything as well.

    1. Randy says: And whatever they don’t have, they’ll just manufacture. Say, maybe the guy who created George Bush’s phony Texas Air National Guard records is still available. He single-handedly took down Dan Rather, so maybe he’s up to the task to take down the FBI.

    3. Mr. Surber I’m sickened by the actions of the FBI and DOJ. If it isn’t doing this for political reasons why all this right before the midterms and why the constant witch-hunt over and over again. The American people are tired of this.

    4. The Dan Rather Texas Air National Guard letter fiasco was the last time that Nerds on the Internet believed in the truth. They proved the document was written on Microsoft Word due to the font used and the fact that Word uses font kerning which adjusts the spacing between the letters dynamically. No typewriter available at the time would have been able to produce such a letter. Unfortunately, the Nerds were not able to convince the media that Obama's Birth Certificate PDF as published on the white house website was edited. There were multiple layers and clear indications that the data was altered. They claimed a copier generated the PDF but that is now how PDF works. Someone used a tool like Adobe Illustrator or Adobe Acrobat to edit that PDF. Altering critical data. The birth certificate is fake, I evaluated it myself. I work with PDF's extensively. Was also banging my head against the wall over all the info about Hillary's private email server. Hundreds of issues with security and idiotic foolish steps being taken all along the way. No one had the balls to stand up to her and put a stop to it. I guess they didn't want to experience Arkanside. Then you've got Hunter's laptop and all the election Dominion stuff, again, nerd head banging.

    6. Excellent article Don. To the real points and throw ou all rthe BS being used today by DOJ and FBI . I think most people are not on board with any of it and these poll niumbers are totally made up lies. We shall soon see.if they will just fabricate new evidence to prosecute and harrasse . This must stop and we must get rid of the current FBI and DOJ or we are all toast !

    8. Seeing as how Clinesmith forged a document and got probation (and his law license from DC back!) the people who deny the FBI fakes stuff are full of bull. The FBI has been incompetent and corrupt for quite some time; go to Sharyl Attkisson's "Full Measure" site for the feature "Big Misses". It's so bad you have to wonder how much of it is deliberate (look up the "Draw Mohammed' contest at Garland Texas it looks like the FBI was willing to let hundreds get slaughtered).
      The summary website for the Clinton Crimes is "Arkancide" BTW.

  3. These people are showing their complete and utter contempt for Trump and by extension his supporters. They want to make it impossible for him to have any of the privileges extended to other presidents... especially a library. They refuse to confirm his legitimate election and by their own actions have exposed their guilt in stealing his reelection... just look at their actions... the J6 prisoners, the hair on fire impeachment after he left office... the continued persecution... their refusal to extend to him or his family a modicum of respect. All you have to do is ask yourself... would they have raided (one of) Obama's houses or rifled through Michele's undies?

  5. Dear Mr Surber:
    1.Is there any evidence that President Trump declassified the documents in question, e.g. an announcement in the FEDERAL REGISTER that he was doing so? I haven't been able to find any confirmation that said documents have been declassified beyond President Trump's own say so.

    2. "The commander-in-chief can declassify anything he wants."

    If so, it follows that the present commander in chief, Biden can reclassify any documents that have been declassified in the past. it hasn't happened as of 1 October 21:

    https://www.archives.Gov/files/fy-2021-withdrawals-report.pdf

    but it could have happened since then. under authority of 32 CRF 2001.13.

    1. I have seen several articles that say he declared declassification of crossfire hurricane documents and the DOJ would not process the declassification forms (which would be another form of defiance to orders, but who cares). They assume or know he took copies. Hopefully he has copies of the declassification forms as well. I'm sure they reside in the same place as the fake 2020 ballots.

      Delete
    2. 1988 Navy vs. Egan the Supreme Court recognized the President's absolute power to declassify anything at his sole discretion. He can declassify simple by waving his arms and saying this is declassified. No forms required. Furthermore as to what is the government's and what is Trump's, a 2012 decision which has not been appealed held that the President decides what is his, not the state.

      Delete
    3. Short of LEGAL removal from office by congress, the president answers to no one but the voters at election time. No form, no custom "legitimizes" any action by the president because he is the highest authority and as such is self-legitimizing.

      That, of course, is the reason why Democrats so fear Donald Trump, because he can bypass all their crooked agencies and "drain the swamp" when he regains the presidency.

      Delete
    4. Dear Mr. Anonymous, The Constitution has an ex post facto provision at Article I, Section 9, 3rd clause. The government is prohibited from making prior act illegal. It doesn't matter what Biden does, he can't re-classify documents then prosecute an act from a prior date.

      Delete
    5. Excellent point ! They know they cannot successfully prosecute him but will play this out to affect any potential election because some people will believe their BS ! Some people will believe anything they say as the Trump hate runs deep and for what reasons ? All of to just another created event same as the Mueller event and the CV scams ! Do they deliberately lie to get their way and do the masses that believe their BS know what they are talking about or just goiing along with it all like the fools and tools they are ?

      In the final analysis there is only one solution to their lawlessness and that is the bottom line we must all face up to !

  6. All this incessant Democrat and deep state rage against President Trump is incredibly destructive to the people’s trust in everything government. And while this has all been nonstop Hell for President Trump, he can at least know he will forever be an American hero of the people. A true American icon and legend and symbol of freedom, self-reliance and patriotism. Forever.

    If Trump was right and as many as 225 million people see things his way, then it may not be so many as the voting age population's ~260 mil.

  17. Everything the Biden regime has done has been a total nightmare and failure - this is no different. However, since they now hold the keys and pretty much told us in the last election that they were going to control all of media, they pretty much hold the keys to what is right and wrong and who is guilty or innocent. It has devolved into a void government that should scare every last person to death. They tell the media what to publish and tell the DOJ who to persecute and not persecute. They hold Salem witch trials over anyone who associates with the opposition including Jan 6 protestors who did nothing. They do nothing to those who burn down cities, kill police officers, and threaten Supreme Court justices. They even persecute innocent parents looking out for their children's education.

In both cases we were defeated by illiterate peasants who were fighting against corrupt governments and had nothing else to lose.
