 The Payback for Mar-a-Lago Will Be Brutal

What went around Monday will come around hard for the Democrats when Republicans control the Justice Department and FBI.

By Kimberley A. Strassel

Aug. 11, 2022

Trump derangement syndrome has a curious way of scrambling coherent thought. Witness the Democratic-media complex’s blind insistence the Justice Department raid on Donald Trump’s home is just and necessary—rather than a dangerous move for their party and the republic.

In descending on Mar-a-Lago, the department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation shifted the U.S. into the category of countries whose ruling parties use government power to investigate political rivals. No attorney general has ever signed off on a raid on a former president’s home, in what could be the groundwork for criminal charges.

Yet to read the left’s media scribes, Monday’s search was a ho-hum day in crime-fighting. The Beltway press circled the wagons around Attorney General Merrick Garland and primly parroted Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s piety that “no one is above the law.” “The Mar-a-Lago Raid Proves the U.S. Isn’t a Banana Republic,” pronounced the Atlantic, clearly worried readers might conclude the opposite. It is “bedrock principle” that those who “commit crimes” “must answer for them,” it lectured......

Another far right-winger trying to defend Trump's activities.   I did not see where she said Trump was innocent or there were no classified documents at Mar-a-Lago.

The Trump selected and appointed FBI Director initiated/approved the search.

No other American president has ever committed the grievous offenses that Trump has, not even Richard Nixon.

Interesting that poster does not say Trump is innocent or there was insufficient evidence to warrant a search.

Only that the Republicans will extract "payback."  Not because Trump is innocent, but because the FBI and DOJ and a judge found sufficient evidence to investigate the situation.  Talk about "banana republics" - a Republican invention for America.

Garland pointed out Trump himself talked about the search. How do we know other countries didn't do similar things, maybe the other countries that high profile people got searched got out of Dodge rather than announce being searched.

That sounds like something Jefferson Davis said as they were taking him away in chains.

DOJ moves to unseal Mar-a-Lago search warrant; Trump: 'Release the Documents Now!'

Everybody likes to know what evidence was presented to get the search warrant issued.  Long as the FBI had the warrant, they themselves broke no law.

Trump's being investigated for espionage.

NEW via Breitbart: Trump under investigation per search warrant for:
18 USC 2071 — Concealment, removal or mutilation
18 USC 793 — Gathering, transmitting or losing defence information 18
USC 1519 — Destruction, alteration or falsification of records in Federal investigations

18 USC 793 is the Espionage Act

PlusTrump had hot info on the President of France in the safe.

Not since The Beverly Hillbillies' Double Naught Spy, Jethro Bodine, have we had an alleged spy so stupid  that he wouldn't have enough sense
