Yesterday: What gives FBI the right to raid Mara-Lago. They should have negotiated with 45 instead. DOJ Today: We asked for 18 months. Fox News Today: FBI should have raided sooner.
They really do assume that their viewers are idiots. https://t.co/APCywqMVPv— George Conway🌻 (@gtconway3d) August 26, 2022

Affidavit attaches a Trump lawyer's 5/2022 letter to DOJ which claims Trump's actions "regarding classified documents are not subject to criminal sanction."— Andrew Weissmann 🌻 (@AWeissmann_) August 26, 2022
Are you kidding?
The "if I do it, it cannot be illegal" defense.
Context: as a senior commander in Europe I read these kinds of documents. Often, my reaction was “holy crap, that’s great & surprising intel.”— Mark Hertling (@MarkHertling) August 26, 2022
This is what Trump had in the basement of his friggin’.
Infuriating. Anyone who defends this is criminal scum. https://t.co/n2DIBWlL8h
I just want to point out the comments in that video are all from before today. Aside from FoxNews wondering why the FBI didn't raid earlier (?), I haven't heard anything from these clowns. I'm sure we will. But they'll still be clowns.
Deception, deflection, and denial. That’s how the MAGAverse has responded to the raid on Mar-a-Lago and the affidavit supporting it. pic.twitter.com/3dym0nC1Q1— The Lincoln Project (@ProjectLincoln) August 26, 2022
i'm sure Trump mishandling highly classified information and endangering human sources will at the very least disqualify him from holding future office among Republicans, who are very serious about national security— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) August 26, 2022
So many, many reasons to not let this man near within 500 feet of any federal office, unless he is in custody.
It’s interesting that the affidavit notes that there were moving trucks at MAL on January 18. The only relevance I can see is if Trump moved these before his last day (I though he was still packing them then?) and perhaps thought that if he did while POTUS, it protected him— Asha Rangappa (@AshaRangappa_) August 26, 2022
The information revealed in the affidavit indicates that the country’s national security and the safety of intelligence agents were possibly put at severe risk when national defense documents were apparently stored in a room at a resort in Florida.It’s a little confusing – there’s been much talk in the media about classified information. Improper storing of classified information is a crime, but that is not what is being investigated here. A much more serious crime under the Espionage Act is at stake.Even someone like a former president who initially had lawful possession of national defense information commits a felony by retaining that information after the government demands its return. Trump can not hang on to national defense documents even if, while president, he “declassified” such documents, as he claims he did.It’s been documented that a Chinese spy penetrated Mar-a-Lago while Trump was president. It is a unsecured location. If a foreign spy got into that room and walked out with information disclosing U.S. undercover agents around the world, or how we have been monitoring and collecting classified information around the world, I see the potential harm as staggering.
