Donald Trump’s lawyers are trying to us defence lawyers best weapon in a trail…..
They are STILL asking for a Special Master to review document’s the FBI/Justice Dept, and CIA have ALREADY gone over….
Donald Trump’s last utterances where righteous indignation at the Government taking back stuff he wasn’t supposed to have(Stole?) ….
Today the Feds stuck back with the first phase of legal arguments in public…..
(The Feds have been after the stuff they took back for over a YEAR)
The Justice Dept. comments/arguments/justifications detail the ex-President’s s legal criminal
liabilities pertaining to at least 3 US Criminal Statues….
Donald Trump HIMSELF should be worried….
The Feds seem to be looking at criminal charges for the ex-President….
Garland & Co. seem to have made their minds to cross THAT bridge….
And this is only one of other criminal cases with Trump’s name floating around in Wash. Dc and Fulton County, Georgia…..
While the document goes out of its way not to discuss Trump’s personal behaviour, it also includes material specifically suggestive of the degree to which the department has collected material incriminating Trump personally.
All of which suggests some preliminary answers to key questions: How big a problem is the Mar-a-Lago investigation for Trump? How long is this going to take? Specifically, as we shall explain, it suggests that the investigation is a very big problem for Trump, one in which he appears to have a great deal of exposure. But it also suggests that the investigation is going to take a while—a point on which a careful reading of the filing leaves little doubt.
The release of this damaging material by the Justice Department is almost entirely a result of Trump’s own actions—or at least those of his legal team. At each stage of this investigation, including the search itself, the Justice Department has been careful to resist releasing additional information about the probe—only for Trump to open the door for the department to weigh in by complaining about the investigation. This one is no exception.
Trump’s original motion seeking the appointment of a special master was not subtle in framing the FBI’s search of Mar-a-Lago as an abuse of power on the part of the Biden administration: It opened with the solemn invocation that “[p]olitics cannot be allowed to impact the administration of justice,” portrayed Trump as “ask[ing] the Government the questions any American citizen would ask under the circumstances[,]” accused the FBI of pursuing “a raid [on] my home with a platoon of federal agents when I have voluntarily cooperated with your every request[,]” and condemned the government for “declin[ing] to provide even the most basic information about what was taken, or why.” Arguably, the Justice Department’s detailed account of its investigation only seeks to answer these questions—but it does so with a level of detail that is incredibly damning for Trump.
The new filing contains a great deal of evidence of classified material held improperly at Mar-a-Lago. The Justice Department quotes a letter sent from the department to Trump’s counsel on April 29 stating that, according to the National Archives, the documents at Trump’s estate included “over 100 documents with classification markings, comprising more than 700 pages,” among them material with “the highest levels of classification, including Special Access Program (SAP) materials.” In May, after the FBI’s first visit to Mar-a-Lago, the bureau received “184 unique documents bearing classification markings, including 67 documents marked as CONFIDENTIAL, 92 documents marked as SECRET, and 25 documents marked as TOP SECRET.”
The material seized during the August search included some documents so sensitive that “even the FBI counterintelligence personnel and DOJ attorneys conducting the review required additional clearances before they were permitted to review” them. The filing states that “[t]he classification levels ranged from CONFIDENTIAL to TOP SECRET information, and certain documents included additional sensitive compartments that signify very limited distribution.” For visual learners, the Justice Department has also included a striking photograph of documents labeled SECRET/SCI and TOP SECRET/SCI, including some with markings indicating information obtained from human sources.
Yet the story the department tells in the filing is not just about the highly sensitive nature of the documents. The document spends a great deal of time on the question of intent, which is key to all three statutes listed in the original search warrant….
Trump may want to go ‘political’ on this…
But he’s got REAL legal problems to contend with after the lights go out…
And he himself only makes things worst with his utterance’s in the media…
The more time the Feds have?
The deeper in shit Trump is gonna be….
More House Select Hearing are coming and MORE people are signing to the Feds about Trump unorthodox actions while in and out of office….
