Intellectual standards or at least a basic sense of shame used to put a hardcap on how much a person could dump into their "Stupid" stat but we let the trolls of the world take those two things out behind the barn and shoot them while we patted ourselves on the back about how well we were at ignoring them, so those don't work anymore.
It is always some variation on this theme...

It's not what 'we' believe they got Trump for; it's what the DOJ/FBI think they have Trump for. It's what the judge signing the warrant thinks they have Trump for.

It's highly improbable that the FBI executed this raid without the knowledge of AG Garland as the warrant was executed by the DOJ . This is such an unprecedented event that there is no way Garland would have approved this if it weren't a high crime.

I have to laugh at all the Republicans screaming how this has never been done before. When was the last time we had an ex-POTUS do anything nearly as serious as promoting and instigating an attempted coup to overthrow an election in order to retain power? What Nixon did pales in comparison.

It's only wrong when a Democrat/lib/prog does it.

Though I can't recall the last time 'the left' tried a coup.

We don't know. Almost no one was arrested on January 6th.

But I doubt it was anyone's plan for there to be a firefight. The intention was to prevent the peaceful orderly transition. They wanted to stop the counting of the electiral votes and throw it over to the House of Representatives.

Out of curiosity, why did the arrange for fake electors? Isn't that part of the coup? How about calling and trying to find a specific number of votes in Georgia. Why is Trump calling the Governor of Arizona when they were certifying the vote? Trump and his cabal were clearly attempting an insurrection.

Every one of them. All had fists, feet and teeth. A sufficient mass of bodies can overwhelm, which this crowd was and did. This attack's culpability does not rest on the presence of any 'weapons' of the more commonly defined type. Although there were hitty and pokey and stabby types of weapon weilded in plain view on video.

They're saying that Trump shouldn't be investigated because he might run for President in 2024. I guess that means he just has to keep talking about the possibility of running and he's immune to all consequences for the rest of his life.

Reports are that the FBI seized classified material.

One official said some or possibly all of the seized documents contained classified material.

Well, let's for fun suppose that this action against CheetoFace is entirely political: contrived, deceitful, vindictive, motivated by nothing more than a lust for revenge. The sole intent is to remove him and his helpers permanently from politics, with maximum shame and disgrace. And let's suppose that it's all a frameup, a kangaroo prosecution, and a dastardly, ruthless, and cynical crime.

Now tell me, tell everybody, what oh what are the rightie tighties going to do about it?

Some people seem to have no problem with anything that hurts the liberal order. Even if that means defending a man who once encouraged war crimes, something they'd otherwise remember to remind us every new thread if some other group of people had done it.

It's hilarious how many paleoconservative "anti-war" antiestablishment types still have so much more to say about Trump's opponents than Trump supporters in 2022. Absolute clowns.

Makes you wonder. Did he take them because he thought they'd be something he could leverage in some way, or because he's like that old lady who takes the salt and pepper shakers from the table and dumps them into her purse just before she leaves the restaurant?

I'm noticing that the pro Trump, anti American crowd are making a lot of noise about locking and loading. The online behavior of the enemy appears similar to what they did before the attack and attempted coup on January 6th.

A couple of Trump lawyers are now putting out the idea that maybe "the FBI planted something" hmmmm...

This one says "This is Momento" (not sure what that means) and then says the FBI might have planted something:

Then this one... thinks maybe they would just make stuff up. They don't have anything, she asserts confidently.

What is that phrase about the accusation being the confession? Soften everyone up for the evidence that is going to come out.

Weirdly, not even Alex Jones went this route.

Oh, apparently Newt Gingrich is now saying it too...

That's the talking point, everyone. It's all a big plant.

Now would be a good time to get the Republicans to say what has been planted. Just to see if they know full well what the FBI has found.
