Despite assurances to the contrary, Merrick Garland’s DOJ is leaking faster than the Titanic after it struck the iceberg. This from Jonatham Turley on Aug. 25
The feds have maintained that absolute secrecy is essential to protect their investigation and national security while reportedly leaking some of the very information the affidavit contains. It is an all-too-familiar pattern for some of us who have litigated national-security cases against the government.
The Washington Post and The New York Times have published a series of leaks clearly designed to put Donald Trump and his team on the defense in the media, including claims that he was hiding sensitive nuclear-weapons material and details on how the search was prompted by video surveillance outside the storage room at Mar-a-Lago.
And it hasn’t stopped. Yesterday:
A slew of the documents obtained at the Aug. 8 raid on Mar-a-Lago contained top secret content that only the president, his Cabinet members and near-Cabinet-level members are authorized to have knowledge of, sources told The Washington Post. Some of the information requires special clearances where only a few dozen people are allowed to have access to the operation’s existence.
“sources told The Washington Post.”
Drip, drip, drip.
… These leaks seem to come when the Justice Department is facing opposing actions in court and sever to frame the public debate through selective releases of information.
These leaks are clearly meant to blunt the blowback the obviously compromised FBI/DOJ has encountered. This does make me question whether the DOJ really has a case against Trump.
- They wouldn’t need to try Trump so vigorously in the media if they were so sure they could try him in Court.
We’ve seen how the left has lost its mind over a judge appointing a Special Master to review the seized documents.
The left is frantically afraid of a fair and independent review.
When U.S. District Judge Aileen M. Cannon issued an order for the appointment of a special master, she instantly became the latest jurist targeted by a furious mob of media and pundits. Rather than simply disagree with her order, these critics attacked Cannon personally and ethically, including lawyers and law professors. It is a familiar pattern but the fury shown in the last two days is chilling for our federal judges who have seen increasing attacks, including an alleged attempted assassination of Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Nevertheless, legal and media figures seemed to rush to outdo each other in the most extreme statements about a judge with a distinguished background.
Read the whole thing to see how crazed and warped these people are. What possible discoveries might come out of such a review that would cause the sheer vitriol directed toward the judge who issued the review ruling?
2. If Trump guilt is so clear and solid WHY are democrats are so fearful of an independent and fair review?
Could it be that they really have nothing they can use, and they need to prosecute Trump in the media?
Could it be that they know the case is weak and fraught with appeal opportunities?
Could it be that in bringing the case discovery would uncover the entire plot -not just the FBI- against Trump?
I cannot see a successful prosecution that hung on shielded evidence and witnesses. It would be a violation of the Constitution.
Arguably the worst thing for Garland would be to bring the case and lose. I could be wrong here, but I think bringing charges against Trump has a ton of downside for Garland and his corrupt DOJ. IMO that’s why the DOJ is trying the case in the media.
One thing that has come out because the FBI/DOJ tried to “get Trump,” is that joe biden did order this.
Way back in May joe biden ordered the FBI/DOJ to raid Mar a Lago to get Trump.
joe biden even tried to declassify all of President Trump’s Presidential papers as an excuse to claim the Trumpster had classified stuff illegally at his Florida home.
joe biden lied when he said he learned about the raid when it was reported on TV.
He ordered that raid!
The “court of public opinion” has no place in this nation. Democrats and the Deep State have eroded the rule of law and threaten to replace our democracy with authoritarianism. Everyone, including Trump, is innocent until proven guilty. To think we’d allow our country to be infested with corporate-paid installs who simply print lies until enough of their rubes take them as gospel…
Trump represents simple American freedoms. Biden and his masters are tyrants.
The choice is clear.
Saul Alinsky seems to be the mind behind everything the Left is doing. He once said he’d “Organize Hell.” I think Hell is organizing him, and the deep state.
Here are his demonic list of rules:
Note: Yes, michael. Hell is real, forever, and is perfectly fine if you don’t believe it in. It believes in you.
It is interesting that President Trump while not in office, is still able to expose the corruption within agencies in the government.
Americans are sick of the government currently in place and are more than eager to replace it in November.
None of these revelations would have happened without Trump’s efforts to get a Special Master inserted where no existing law or precedent exists for doing so.
Everything was quiet because of the ongoing grand jury investigations and legal secrecy requirements. That doesn’t apply when the government is required to respond to motions before an entirely separate court, selected only for the “flexibility” of the junior Trump judge called to repay the Godfather’s favor of appointment.
I have to admire your depth of stupid skippy, you repeat or parrot the “experts” from where, with zero investigation on your own? Did you attend the same school as Mike and Greg?
Are you not over due for your 4th or 5th booster?
They were already happening. It was already alleged the raid was because Trump had nuclear secrets in Mar a Lago. But, in any event, why would the reasonable demand for the special master necessitate leaks by the FBI?
Donald Trump: The grift that keeps on giving.
01/15/21 – President Trump’s legacy of corruption, four years and 3,700 conflicts of interest later
And yet no one, including you, can give us any concrete examples…something more than partisan feels that dissolve in the light of even mild analysis.
No one, including me, can make Trump’s followers see what to everyone else is totally obvious.
“No results found”, scooter, just like every accusation you have ever made.
No one, including me, can make Trump’s followers see what to everyone else is totally obvious.
Because you can’t discern fact from partisan fiction, and you can’t bring receipts to actually back up your bogus claims.
And hey greg, here is ten straight minutes of Democrats denying election results.
This traitorous mentality that brewed in the Democrat Party for decades allowed them to rig the 2020 election, so bereft of integrity or logic that they couldn’t accept they are not a majority and not favored by the People. Projection is a bitch, isn’t it? Trump stole nothing, and didn’t try to overturn anything either. The 2020 election was fraudulent. Period. You people couldn’t help yourselves from cheating.
What are you flailing clowns going to pull this November? Can’t wait to see.
No crimes were committed. The so called investigation is going nowhere.
It is a bunch of librarians wanting their overdue books back.
Trump took official government documents that he had to right to possess. He refused to return them, despite endless official requests, so the FBI was finally sent to fetch them. Then, lo and behold, it was found that they included classified material—some being highly sensitive top secret documents. He then asserted he had secretly declassified everything, though no record of this exists, and initiated his typical stalling tactics to confuse and impede the investigation.
This lunacy is only the latest development.
That’s the narrative your Party wants you to spread, but it’s not reality.
Just another hoax, with daily changes to the narrative.
You might as well just admit that you and your Party can’t beat Trump in an election, so you’re resorting to tyrannical measures that will disqualify you idiots from your American citizenship.
Think it through.
Without knowing what documents were taken, how can you know this? You base all your knowledge on self-serving leaks by known liars? You actually think that is wise?
So obvious greg cannot name even one. Wow, really on your game today greg
It’s interesting. I think greg actually believes his own bullshit.
He IS the corruption that he says Trump it. This is how it works.
Hitler convinced Germans they were the noble victims being destroyed by evil Jews and everyone else. They felt fine in abandoning the laws and moral to destroy their enemies…because the Jews and others were “evil,” right?
Like Nazi’s, greg and his ilk have embraced a genocidal mindset based on a false-belief. The media/deep state caricature of Trump was only to prevent him from winning elections legally.
Now these fools, like greg, are supporting the LITERAL incarnation of the Trump character:
Unelected, incompetent, crazy, and absolutely destructive to the nation and globe.
THIS IS BIDEN, BY THE NUMBERS AND BY EMPIRICAL FACT.
I think these people are too stupid to actually get anything done against the People, however. Trump supporters are too educated, to experienced, represent about 90% of vets, or more, and simply to competent for a new Democrat-Nazi Party to be able to threaten us.
They are taking themselves down, by their own idiocy.
The only “shots” I’m going to hear is my popcorn popping as I sit down and watch the Democrat/Deep State eat other. More people leave that party daily, so there’s little to fear other than how we’re going to clean up their Communist mess after November.
greggie the village idiot. You have no idea what documents Trump had. Then, it is still to be determined what the real classification of the documents are. Yet, the ignorant people of the left like greggie continue to pretend that they know everything.
Shithouse lawyers to a ‘T’. They know so much about nothing and nothing about everything.
Notice who is sweating,changing their stories, staging photos, and leaking to the press and who isn’t and has the big smile on his face? PT declassified the documents. End of story. The more the DOJ and FBI push this, the more they fall out of favor with the American people for abusing their powers, corruption, and having a vast double standard. Let them keep it up. It’ll make it just that more easy in 2025 to overhaul the former and scrap the latter. And as an added bonus, over half of Americans now want to see the demented pervert occupying the WH impeached, including one-third of his own party. He lied about his role in all of this to go along with other easily proven abuses and crimes he committed meaning it’ll be just that more easy in 2023 to impeach him. And there will actually be hard evidence to do so unlike the Soviet show trials the dems staged.
This whole thing is a Witch Hunt by the Democrats and Globalists Garland should resign
One thing is for absolute damn sure: the weaponized DOJ can run this hoax for as long as they think it benefits the corrupt Democrats and when it collapses for lack of substance, none of the mouth-foaming, out-for-blood, screaming Democrat crybabies will notice. Like the overnight evaporation of an entire MOUNTAIN of “evidence” Schiff had that proved, beyond any possible doubt and irrefutably that Trump was a Russian asset, these Democrats don’t really notice much. So, IF this latest hoax peters out due to either not serving its intended purpose or actually HELPING grow support for Trump, it will not pique the curiosity of the traditionally incurious.
Serving justice is not the point here, or in anything the Democrats pursue. Smearing an opponent with false accusations, “investigations”, raids and indictments is the goal.
Democrats and their DOJ GESTAPO are utterly corrupt.
Donald J. Trump
So now the FBI & Biden Department of “Justice” leakers are going to spend Millions of Dollars, & vast amounts of Time & Energy, to appeal the Order on the “Raid of Mar-a-Lago Document Hoax,” by a brilliant and courageous Judge whose words of wisdom rang true throughout our Nation, instead of fighting the record setting corruption and crime that is taking place right before their very eyes. They SPIED on my Campaign, lied to FISA COURT, told Facebook “quiet,” preside over worst CRIME WAVE ever!!
