Dirtbag Alert… AG Garland Threatens Americans Who Attack “Integrity of FBI” — Basically Admits THEY GOT NOTHING in the Raid (VIDEO)

 

Attorney General Merrick Garland delivered remarks at 2:30 3:04 PM Eastern on the unprecedented raid on President Donald Trump’s home.

Garland has not commented on the raid up to this point.

On Monday at least 30 FBI agents and 3 DOJ officials raided Mar-a-Lago in their continued fishing expedition to manufacture a crime against the 45th President.

Garland today basically admitted they have nothing on President Trump. He could not identify ANYTHING the president did that was illegal.

This confirms that the 9 hour raid on President Trump’s home was a fishing expedition — or they were after documents that indict the FBI.

Merrick Garland today promised he will not stand by as Americans verbally attack the Stasi-FBI.

AG Merrick Garland: “I will not stand by silently when integrity of DOJ and FBI is unfairly attacked.”

Spoken like a true communist.

God help us.

Trump Takes the Fifth in New York

New York’s obsessive attorney general has made it her mission to get Donald Trump, but the former president isn’t about to help her.

We suppose it’s altogether fitting that the famous quote about a prosecutor being able to indict a ham sandwich has its beginnings with a former chief judge of New York’s Court of Appeals named Sol Wachtler. Because New York is the place where hard-left Attorney General Letitia James is continuing her obsessive quest to put Donald Trump behind bars and thereby remove him from presidential circulation.

But if James thought Trump would let his ego and his mouth get the best of him during deposition, she was sorely disappointed. As The Wall Street Journal reports:

Donald Trump said he declined to answer questions from the New York attorney general’s office during his deposition in its civil-fraud investigation into the financial dealings of the former president and his company. In a statement Wednesday, Mr. Trump said he was following the advice of his counsel to assert his right under the Fifth Amendment of the Constitution to not answer questions.

“When your family, your company, and all the people in your orbit have become the targets of an unfounded, politically motivated Witch Hunt supported by lawyers, prosecutors, and the Fake News Media, you have no choice,” Mr. Trump said.

Who can blame him? In the wake of the Biden “Justice” Department’s unprecedented raid on his Florida residence earlier in the week — a court-approved search ostensibly conducted over a matter called the Presidential Records Act, and a raid ostensibly more urgent than the long-overdue one on Hunter Biden’s home — Donald Trump appears unwilling to give his political enemies the rope with which they’ll most certainly hang him.

“This is a vindictive and self-serving fishing expedition,” Trump continued in a lengthy statement he posted to Truth Social. “The United States Constitution exists for this very purpose, and I will utilize it to the fullest extent to defend myself against this malicious attack by this administration, this Attorney General’s Office, and all other attacks on my family, my business, and our country.”

It’s been quite a week for the 76-year-old former president, and it ain’t over yet. But even the man’s detractors must marvel at his energy and resilience in the face of these endless assaults. As Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan put it: “President Trump came to town and shook up the place. He changed the clique that

Crocodile Farm

 

 

 

When a group of tourists visited a crocodile farm, the owner of the place launched a daring proposal;

-Whoever dares to jump, swim to shore and survive, I will give 1 million dollars.

Nobody dared to move, suddenly a man jumped into the water and desperately swam towards the shore while he was chased by all the crocodiles.

With great luck he arrived, taking the admiration of everyone in the place, then the owner announced;

-We have a brave winner.

After collecting their reward, the couple returned to the hotel, upon arrival, the manager told him; he was very brave to jump, then the man said;

-I didn't jump, someone pushed me!

His wife smiled ...

Moral: "Behind every successful man, there is a woman who pushes him."

Some guesses as to what the FBI Mar-a-Lago raid was really about

The DOJ and FBI in action
 

 

It is helpful to think of political developments as moves on the chessboard made to advance an objective.  In chess, the objective is to win the game, chess being zero-sum.  Politics is like that, too, though participants often claim it's not, that they're acting for the greater good, principles at the foundation of democracy, motherhood and apple pie and all that — which is true in some cases but never if Democrats are in the game.

This brings me to Attorney General Garland's claim that the Mar-a-Lago home invasion wasn't a raid at all.  It was perfectly legal because, you see, nobody is above the law.  If the A.G. meant this literally — maybe he didn't — he was way off the mark. Quite a few of his fellow Democrats consider themselves above the law and have for a while.  Everybody knows who they are (long list), what they did, and that they got away with it.

So this particular Democrat move on the chessboard was designed to accomplish...what, exactly?  Here are some scenarios:

  • The Mar-a-Lago raid was an admission that the J6 inquisition failed to unearth evidence that could be used to attach legal blame to President Trump for what transpired.  Yes indeed, they tried awfully hard, and quite a few innocent people got snared in that net, but once again, The Donald walked away unharmed.  So the DNC had to undertake a new fishing expedition.  How this one will turn out remains to be seen.  I doubt it will go anywhere.
  • It's not a coincidence that the Mar-a-Lago home invasion occurred just after a CPAC straw poll showed that President Trump is the GOP's overwhelming favorite for 2024, with Florida governor Ron DeSantis a distant second.  The numbers were 69% for Trump and 24% for DeSantis.  So the point of the raid was to pour cold water on Trump's status as the GOP frontrunner in 2024.  I'm going to take a wild guess and say this won't slow DJT's momentum.
  • Piling on does get old after a while, and, because we're all human, it can be tempting to start wondering at a certain point if it's worth the bother.  President Trump has had to put up with the Russia hoax, the impeachment charade, a New York tax probe...all phony, to be sure, but it's enough to drive a man to drink.  Fortunately, President Trump does not drink.  So the raid was carried out to see if he will buckle and call it quits.  This won't work, either.
  • At the risk of belaboring the obvious, I will note that quite a few in the GOP prefer that President Trump not run in 2024.  Their reasons are not the same, of course, but we don't need to go into them to find out if there's any merit to those reasons.  Nor does it matter much who those folks are.  The CPAC straw poll should have convinced them to knock it off and get in line.  So the raid was designed to create a split in the GOP.  Will it work?
  • House minority leader Kevin McCarthy thought the raid was just politics (duh) and warned that the DOJ will be investigated if he becomes speaker.  I doubt that the A.G. is now hiding under a desk.  As for Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell, he woke up and called for an immediate and thorough explanation (duh).  So the raid should convince the GOP that the two Macs must not be in charge if the red wave materializes in November.  That split would be a win for us all.

The Secrets of Mar-a-Lago

Prosecution under the Espionage Act would be a prosecutorial reach.

Well, that didn’t settle anything. We’re referring to Friday’s release of the warrant and property list that caused Attorney General Merrick Garland to send FBI agents to search Donald Trump’s Florida home. This seems to have been a dispute over classified documents after all, but did that really require an unprecedented and politically polarizing search of a former President’s residence?

The documents show that Federal Bureau of Investigation agents carried away 20 boxes of items and memorabilia. They included 11 sets of classified documents, some of which were marked top secret or higher in classification and required special storage and the highest security clearances.

The list of seized documents included no details. But someone leaked to the Washington Post that among the seized items were “classified documents relating to nuclear weapons.” That sounds ominous, which may have been the point of the leak, and it fed the revival of perfervid media speculation that Mr. Trump is a foreign agent looking to sell the secrets.

Let’s stipulate that mishandling classified documents is bad practice and can be criminal. The FBI had cause to be concerned if it had reason to believe that secrets were improperly taken away or stored in Mar-a-Lago. It wouldn’t be the first time Mr. Trump was ill-disciplined about secrets.

But it has been 18 months since Mr. Trump left the White House, so why the sudden urgency that required Monday’s full-scale search? If the documents were serious nuclear secrets, you’d think the Justice Department would have demanded their return as soon as that was known. And if such documents are floating around Mar-a-Lago, why tell the world via a leak in the Washington Post?

Mr. Trump claims to have nothing to hide and said “it was all declassified.” After Mr. Garland requested on Thursday that the federal judge who signed off on the warrant publicly release it, Mr. Trump didn’t ob

Someone needs to go to his local VA and tell his physician to change his prescription. Seems like the current prescription is turning him into a Ruskie-luver Traitor!!!
