I think you mean " knowing they would blindly throw money at him". I want to know when some of these hundreds of millions of dollars collected are going to be spent on litigating the steal- as was promised. And when is this money going to start going to MAGA candidates? It all seems like one big grift.

Maybe some of this will actually be spent on MAGA candidates. Because damn little of the $253 million raised to "Stop The Steal" has.

The affidavits are under seal right now. If you weren't such a drooling moron, you'd know how these things work. However, Trump has a copy of the affidavit and he is not under a judicial order preventing disclosure. Trump has claimed he had no government documents at Mar-a-Lago. But when the FBI seizes your property, you get a complete inventory of what was taken. Trump has a copy of that too. And he can disclose that a well.

In any event, it's only a matter of time before the Court releases the affidavit. But it is a sure bet that the warrant was limited to documents that were subject to the PRA. And the FBI walked out of his club with a dozen boxes. Unless they are empty, that is a problem.

You are a weak, pathetic cuck- reflexively accusing people of being a fed when you simply don't like what they are saying; even though it's true.

Turn on the TV shit stain. The affidavit was signed by prosecutors from the national security section. Trump has been playing games with classified material and other documents subject to the PRA.

Go ahead and stick your head up your ass and pretend it isn't what it is.

My response was to douchbags who are somehow unable to use Google for themselves to confirm that Trump had, in fact taken official records, including classified documents from the WH when he departed. That article and several more confirm my assertion. My point had nothing to do with whether some of the documents were returned. They were. Apparently some were not. Both instances are violations of the PRA.

The Politico article fails to mention whether the current search warrant was for unreturned documents because it was written in February, you fucking idiot.

Certainly. You can swing by my house and suck it out of my dick.

Please. Trump is going to be arrested and no one will do a fucking thing about it, other than type threats on PDW and post pix of their AR on Sunday Gunday, while jerking off to a vintage issue of Soldier Of Fortune magazine they bought on eBay.

Trump had the WH and both house of congress from 2016-2018. The only thing of consequence passed was the $2 trillion tax cut for the wealthy and corporations. And that just got undone on Saturday. Not immigration reform, not infrastructure, no replacement for Obamacare; not a fucking thing that he campaigned on. Why is that? My theory is that these kinds of issues work to get and keep Republicans in power. They really haven't any interest in actually solving them. Because if they did- people would have no reason to come out to the polls. Look at what is happening with abortion. The R's are the fucking dog that caught the car. Abortion in Kansas wins by a 60-40 margin??? WTF is that? And the R's were slick putting on the ballot when almost all of the other things were Republican primaries. Yet people turned out in RECORD numbers. Like in the 2008 and 2012 general elections. These abortion bans are going to get a lot of people voting in the mid-terms that should be sitting at home. And the Republicans will pay the price. There's no way they win the Senate and will probably lose seats- specifically because of that cuck Dr. Oz, and that imbecile Herschel Walker. But Ron Johnson who keeps pitching dissolution of Social Security and Medicare is probably going to lose as well. And in Ohio, RINO JD Vance steps on his dick every day and seems poised to give that seat to the Dems.

You would have to review the affidavit in support of the search warrant. There is no question that Trump violated the Presidential Records Act. He returned 15 boxes of shit- but apparently he held stuff back:

It is known that Trump took classified and unclassified documents from the WH after he was told not to. His lawyers have been wrangling with the lawyers for the National Archives for their return. Apparently those talks broke down. The Presidential Records Act compels president to turn everything over to the National Archive. For whatever reason, Trump failed to comply- making this now a criminal matter. Very unfortunate. Because if he is convicted, it is one of very few federal laws wherein you are barred from holding office if convicted. Given that the FBI walked out with boxes and boxes of evidence; it is hard to imagine there is not at least a technical violation of the PRA.

If I write a check to my plumber for $700, I don't report that payment any more than I report my mortgage payment going to Wells Fargo to the IRS. This is the same sort of system banks use as they are required to report deposits, withdrawals and transfers of $10,000 or more. The payment processors are providing that info to IRS. Which ultimately is a good thing because I'm sick of people gaming the system and pushing the tax burden on to wage earners.

  1. There are dozens of Trump-appointed judges that have ruled against him in a variety of cases. What you seem to suggest is that every judge ruling adversely to Trumps interests is corrupt. That is laughable.
  2. The act of declassification is a declarative one. There is no such declaration. All of the non-classified records that he took are covered by the statute. He has obvious criminal liability. Try reading the statute before you look any stupider.
  3. Search warrants spell out where you can search and what you can search for.
  4. The National Archives did not obtain the warrant, nor execute the raid. It was DoJ and FBI.
  5. Judging by the cartons of papers carried out by FBI agents yesterday, they have all the evidence they need.

There was reason for a federal judge to sign a search warrant for the home of a former POTUS. It's never been done before and I am sure it checks ALL the boxes. Twice. It's not a secret that Trump took classified and archival material with him to Florida- even after he was told not to. And his legal team has been discussing its return to the National Archives for many months. Something went sideways and caused the government to seek a search warrant. It is a serious matter and were Trump to be charged, it is one of a handful of federal crimes that, if convicted- prevents one from running for office.

Is it ok to point out that Trump appointed Chris Wray? Like James Comey, Part 2.

This is about classified and archival documents- not matters related to impeachment. And even if it were, Being impeached and convicted in the Senate is a political matter, not a criminal one. Impeachment does not foreclose on a future criminal action.

I'm not a tech guy, but it seems that if the reporting is automated from payment processors- then the IRS will have software that identifies the suspicious transactions and people they want to look at. Don't you think they'd be able to see it's a bot transferring a dime back and forth with another bot?

It's not you reporting. It's PayPal and people like that.

On the bright side, this will finally force the illegal aliens to pay taxes.

Are you sure it's not cumulative? And even if it isn't, the banks will report you for multiple deposits of $9000 (below the $10,000 mandatory reposting threshold) every single time. I can see Venmo and PayPal doing the same thing.

My real estate taxes alone are over $500/month. Then there is insurance, lawn care, maintenance and repair. I have to replace our furnace and central AC within the next year. That's probably 10 grand. I just replaced the garage door opener- $800. I had to take down six huge trees this spring and that alone was $9000. Be a homeowner is not without its own set of challenges.

True. If your estate is larger than $11 million. If you kill yourself over an audit and you have that kind of resources- something else is profoundly wrong.
