What we have always heard and continue to hear is the right presenting “The Media” as leftist and the liberal media.

What we all know is that the media is a business and sensationalism sells. Donald Trump for example could never have been president if it were not for the free ‘sensational’ publicity the media gave him as he himself admitted during his campaign.



What we’re hearing now from the media regarding the Federal officer’s legal search of Trump’s home is more sensational Trump Speak !

We are hearing the popular media mirror Trump’s cries calling it a “raid” and that his home was”under siege” and “occupied by law enforcement” who were harassing him in a massive witch hunt. 



That’s all we hear because the DOJ does not release information during an investigation. All we know is that it was a lawful search pursuant to a warrant that was issued to Trump to search for classified documents They went in, collected 10 to 12 boxes of documents that they’d come for and left. It was not a raid and they did not barge in knocking down doors.

    We are hearing the popular media mirror Trump’s cries calling it a “raid” and that his home was”under siege” and “occupied by law enforcement” who were harassing him in a massive witch hunt.


    Where are we hearing that? Trump wasn't even there.

    All we know is that it was a lawful search pursuant to a warrant that was issued to Trump to search for classified documents They went in, collected 10 to 12 boxes of documents that they’d come for and left. It was not a raid and they did not barge in knocking down doors.


    From what I know, yours is a pretty Camelot version of what Big Brother did.

    All that aside, no matter what the particulars of the search may turn out to be, my sense is that sensible people are aghast that a search warrant was served on a candidate who is likely to be the opponent of the sitting President in the next election.

    This is puuuuuuure Banana Republic.

    I understand there was no warrant presented to Jr when they entered the building for the raid, regardless of the lawyers asking repeatedly. The bureau also told them they could not take pictures of the raid.

    My view is that IF there was an actual warrant, it didn't cover the items they stole during the raid. My guess is that they'll revamp the warrant, back date it, and give Trump the updated copy to cover their ass for the raid. My bet is that after the raid, they got a bunch of GS5s to make copies of everything so they can charge with illegal evidence obtained from the raid.

    Just FYSA-
    "raid noun

    \ ˈrād \
    Definition of raid (Entry 1 of 2)
    1a: a hostile or predatory incursion
    b: a surprise attack by a small force
    2a: a brief foray outside one's usual sphere
    b: a sudden invasion by officers of the law
    c: a daring operation against a competitor
    d: the recruiting of personnel (such as faculty, executives, or athletes) from competing organizations"


    So, I really don't see anything about knocking down doors or anything like that, eh slick?

    OD,

    Did you see that the morons at the FBI thought this would be a "low-key" operation.

    The effort to keep the raid low-key failed: instead, it prompted a furious response from GOP leaders and Trump supporters. "What a spectacular backfire," says the Justice official.

    Honestly, it also produced orgasmic reporting from the progressive media. "You'll remember where you were when you heard that a search warrant was served on Donald Trump."

    "The FBI search Monday at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property, tied to a criminal investigation into the handling of classified information, was partly engineered to avoid a spectacle, according to people briefed on the matter. Agents appeared around 10 a.m. ET in plainclothes, not in the early-morning hours and wearing the FBI logo jackets commonly seen at searches. Trump was in New York at the time.

    It became public when Trump issued a public statement near the end of the hours-long search, portraying it as a “siege.”

    Garland has repeatedly addressed why he says so little about the ongoing investigations, citing not only the department’s general policy not to comment but also as part of a strategy to protect the investigation by not letting potential targets know what the department is doing. He also has cited the importance of protecting the rights of people not yet charged with crimes so as to avoid them being tried in the public sphere before the Justice Department brings a case." *

    What stuns me, isle, is that the fibbies thought they could do this low-key.

    It strikes me that Big Brother has no notion of how atrocious he and disciples, such as yourself, are to the rest of us.

    The FBI conducted a legal low key warrented search at mid morning at Mar-a-lago the home of Trump.

    The FBI agents were dressed in plain clothes and many of the staff didn’t even know the were from the FBI or that they were conducting a search, thinking instead that they were simply some of secret service agents assigned there. 



    The news of the search was not made public until 9 hours later.

    The FBI conducted a legal low key warrented search at mid morning at Mar-a-lago the home of Trump.

    How could the fibbies possibly conduct a low-key execution of a search warrant of a former president who's also the leading candidate to face off against the sitting President?

    That they...YOU...think that's possible is absurd.

    It was anything but "low Key" Each one of the officers had the uniform Khakis and dark blue uniform shirt. The red lights were on the outside of the entry to the estate.

    Prove to me this was a legal warrant, and everything they did was legal. (i.e. you're a lawyer, you've seen the warrant, you know that everything they took was legal and ethical). Or, are you shooting your mouth off like your su pareja en la delincuencia. Remember, this agency has seven years of engaging in lying, corruption, felonious activity, lying to FISA judges, then doubling down and re-upping the warrant by still lying to the FISA judge (both are felonies).

    You can tell they work for pedojoe, they rifled through Melania's clothes (am I the only one thinking this is creepy?). I'm just wondering if any of the guys pulled a JE Hoover...

    Change to my prior post. The warrant was there. Lawyers were "allowed" to quickly scan it and give it back at the insistence of the Bureau. The rest of that paragraph stands. They can now change the warrant, make it say whatever they want, back date it, and use it.

    We know (by the National Archives letter) Trump had been working with them to have the documents returned. Even one of his birthday party menus. My question is; why would you execute a warrant, when all you need would be a subpoena? That doesn't make any sense at all. Unless you support a despot, fascist dictatorship.

    Oh, BTW, the estate has interior cameras. And they were left on... I can hardly wait for that.

    I love all of this incessant whining from Trump's supporters and apologists. It underscores what pathetic snowflakes they are.


  10. by HatetheSwamp on August 11, 2022 3:08 am

    Donna,

    The truth is, no one here is a Trump supporter. Both OD and pb have said that they're supporting other GOP candidates for 024. We're both stunned by the raid on Trump.

    pb loves how you Big Bro lovers love this weaponization of the DOJ and federal law enforcement against the president’s political adversary. This has never happened in our history.

    It's Stalin stuff.


  11. by oldedude on August 11, 2022 6:02 am
    For a good example of this, watch the movie "Osama." It's not about bin Ladin. It's about Afghanistan, made, produced, and acted completely by and for Afghans. You can get it on the cheap now, just to rent.

    That is what is going on here.


  12. by Donna on August 11, 2022 9:30 am
    I said "and apologists", Hts.


  13. by HatetheSwamp on August 11, 2022 2:26 pm

    Donna,

    Neither of us are Trump apologists. You're confusing fear and hate of governmental corruption for a Trump apology.

    For pb, and I think OD, too, this is all about the DOJ and FBI.

    What they did is without precedent...for a reason.


  14. by oldedude on August 11, 2022 4:38 pm
    So a couple of updates for today. I first heard the cameras were on inside the estate. That was wrong. The FBI told the people there, the cameras were to be turned off. There's only one reason to turn cameras off. And that's so there is no documentation about what happened.

    Two. Apparently in late 2021, Trump declassified parts of "Crossfire Hurricane," the illegal operation the FBI used to show Trump Russia collusion story. It was illegal because anything that happened within the two warrants (phone taps, surveillance, leaks, the Flynn debacle, etc) is illegally obtained evidence. AND with that, they are civilly liable for millions each to Flynn, Trump, and anyone else that was part of it. The whole case falls apart. FBI knew Trump had a copy of the declassified report. And then of course, the criminal charges against the agents.

    If true, Merrit Garland, who admitted he had approved the warrant, is in big shit.

    Lead, no one has admitted pedojoe knew anything. That's really sad if that true. I don't think so, but that's where it stands right now. He also said that he knew nothing about what Hunter was up to... or his business dealings. Which have been proven a lie.

    How can that be?

    Eric Trump said that the security cameras at Mar-a-Lago caught FBI agents behaving improperly during Monday's raid, alleging that investigators were accessing parts of former President Donald Trump's Florida residence that they "shouldn't have been."

    In an interview with DailyMail.com, Eric Trump said that because staff refused to turn off the surveillance cameras at the request of the FBI, the Mar-a-Lago cameras captured agents raiding areas that they weren't authorized to.

    Again, the Bureau is suspiciously quiet on this. That's what I heard from two sources, but they may have used a single source to report. IDK.
