Let us call this Russiagate 2.0. According to the Washington Post (albeit a discredited newspaper but a reliable shill for the Washington political elite), the FBI was looking for nuclear documents in the Presidential collection Donald Trump stored at his Palm Beach estate. This speaks to the frantic desperation of the anti-Trump crowd, especially the corrupt officials that infest the leadership of the FBI and the Department of Justice. They used this ludicrous pretext to obtain a search warrant with the help of a credulous cretin of a Judge, Bruce Reinhart.
U.S. federal agents were looking for documents relating to nuclear weapons when they searched former President Donald Trump’s home in Florida this week, the Washington Post reported on Thursday.
Having failed to produce any evidence that Trump was working with good old Vladimir Putin to destroy America’s democracy with Russiagate 1.0, the anti-Trump crowd apparently has decided to trot out another Russia-tainted meme, the ultimate red herring, to portray Donald Trump as a 21st Century Dr. Strangelove. We now know the truth. Donald Trump was trying to build a nuclear weapon in his wine cellar at Mar A Lago.
What did he intend to do with that Bomb? Well, if you are going to adopt the mindset of the Washington glitterati, he was going to sell it to Russia. You see, Russia is a backward, technologically inept country and was counting on Trump to give Putin the nuclear secrets that would make it possible for Russia to conquer the world. What judge in his right mind could refuse to authorize a search for such deadly secrets?
I think we now know why the FBI was pawing through Melania Trump’s lingerie. They apparently had intercepted Trump telling his wife that she looked like a nuclear tipped cruise missile in her red Teddy. Of course, the FBI had to assume that was code word for something far more nefarious. I initially assumed that the FBI spent so much time handling and sniffing Melania’s panties and negligees because, as members of the Secret J. Edgar Hoover Cross Dressing Club, they were looking to upgrade their outfits before their next Monkey Pox rave. Boy, was I wrong.
Why would Trump keep nuclear secrets locked away with his other papers? That would be crazy. The Donald figured he could hide the damning documents by taping them inside the lingerie. Brilliant, huh?
Maybe Trump held on to the nuclear codes because he thought he could use them to play the Power Ball or Mega Millions lotteries.
What this whole episode shows us is that Kamala Harris is no longer the dumbest member of the Biden team. Nope. That honor goes to Merrick Garland. He apparently believed that this scheme would discredit Trump and elevate Garland as the Clausewitz of the Biden Presidency. I believe Warner Brothers may be filing a copyright infringement lawsuit against the mad Attorney General for adopting a Wile E Coyote plot. Garland strapped himself to the tip of the missile before activating the fuze that ignited the rocket. He failed to recognize that he would be riding a political nuclear bomb to his own political demise. Maybe he is just a secret admirer of Slim Pickens and wanted to recreate Pickens’ iconic moment in Dr. Strangelove:
Alright, back to serious. Trump may be right that someone may have planted a document related to nuclear weapons or nuclear technology in the boxes he had locked up. That does not incriminate Trump and is no crime. The prosecutors would have to show that Trump instructed someone on his staff to put such a document in one of the boxes. Trump may be a lot of things, but stupid and reckless are not how he became a billionaire and beat the dickens out of Hillary in 2016. Is there another Alexander Vindman lurking in the shadows keen on helping create a pretext to discredit Trump?
If Trump really was trying to hide such information why would he have instructed his attorneys to negotiate with the National Archives on getting an agreement to return the records to the Feds? In fact, if he had mens rea, do you really think Trump would keep something so figuratively radioactive on his estate?
Merrick Garland, despite his Harvard education, is not a smart man. He signed off on a warrant rather than ask Trump and his lawyers if he had such documents in his possession. Are they going for the old – he lied to me tactic that they used on General Michael Flynn? Lying to Federal Agents is a crime unless you are former FBI Chief Andrew McCabe.
Instead of doing the reasonable, lawyerly thing, Garland chose the nuclear option. I think it will come back to haunt him.
