This didn’t take long and it makes perfect sense. Donald Trump’s enmity towards special prosecutor Jack Smith is patently absurd. Trump has vilified the man, his wife, Smith’s other relatives up one side and down the next. Obviously, Smith has the ability to push buttons Trump’s buttons.

Now we find out why that is. The Independent is reporting that the special counsel is “pressing Trump officials on Russian probe documents.” That is why Trump is going off the deep end.

Investigators working for Justice Department Special Counsel Jack Smith have reportedly questioned multiple ex-Trump administration officials about the fate of a large tranche of classified documents pertaining to the FBI probe into Russia’s campaign of interference in the 2016 election.

A report by Murray Waas, a freelance investigative reporter and former National Journal staff writer, wrote on Wednesday that “at least three” figures in Mr Trump’s inner circle have been pressed by prosecutors on whether Mr Trump took “thousands of pages” of documents from the White House — including many bearing classification markings — with an eye towards making them public in attempt to discredit the Justice Department’s probe into alleged ties between his 2016 campaign and the Russian Federation.

The twice-impeached ex-president attempted to declassify many of the records at issue before he left office with the issuance of 19 January 2021 memo with the title “Declassification of Certain Materials Related to the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane Investigation”. Though he ordered the documents “declassified to the maximum extent possible” it’s unclear whether that directive was followed.

We have always known that Russia was the smoking gun, right? That became evident in 2016. Now, it looks like Jack Smith is going to bring it all out into the open.

Very simply, Trump didn’t care whose privacy he compromised or what American operatives he exposed or possibly got killed. His only interest was in serving himself — and Vladimir, of course. That goes without saying.

    • Mike Hammer put it best in his last line of I, The Jury: “It was easy.” And nearly every week, sometimes daily, I get a reminder on why.

    • In the past 4+ decades we’ve seen reagan, w. and now former guy–all pitifully uneducated morons. All three were actually were given college degrees which says something about higher education in this country; that if you can pay the tuition, however you can pay it, they’ll hand over the parchment.

      There was a day when the President of the U.S. had to have at least a modicum of intelligence. These days only the democrats put forward such candidates.

    • If he was just an uneducated moron it would not be as bad. He is a dishonest grifter and con man in hock to the Russian oligarchs and Putin.

      • Con family. Djtj is selling Trump bibles! Copy the best selling book of all time and still #1 seller. Add their own twist by adding parts of constitution and amendments. Wala, New bible by trumps. Watch how many Christians buy satan’s version of KJV Bible. Hotel with his name will replace KJV to hi$. Evangelicals will tell congregation to buy it. Easy fast money continuous flow which the family needs now. Road to be a billionaire forever.

    • Hi, Lin. Simple answer. Voters have been deluded into the belief that our system of government is self-correcting, that it can continue on a sort of cruise control, without intervention from citizens. You know the old saying: You reap what you sow.

  3. Excuse me for the rant that follows…but what in the HELL have I been saying for a while now about this?! Too many people around here have been acting like all Trump’s crimes were a self-contained, domestic affair from the start. But this little deliberate leak from the DOJ should back up what I’ve been telling you about the true international links here. When those cases happen at this level, it becomes national security which means you can throw your fantasies of “swift justice” out the window.

    Leave aside the sexy conspiracy theories that read like a bad James Bond parody on this too. Think more like John Le Carre or, if you remember him, Bill Granger (FYI, the author who accurately predicted a successful assassination of a British royal family member in his debut novel The November Man based on his time in Northern Ireland). Real world collusion is both more horrific and mundane in action. Putin never likely had to lift a finger when it came to Trump. NOT because he had the goods on him necessarily but because he knew he could rely on the fool’s paranoid psychology to do nearly all the work for him. Sadly, based on the years and years of equally paranoid handwringing I’ve had to endure on this subject from our side, I’m forced to conclude that he may well have known how to play the rest of us too. THAT’S how he and every Russian ruler before him helped keep his little empire under control for all these centuries…so why wouldn’t it have worked here? Next time you’re inclined to panic, ask yourself whether you’re proving Putin’s proven contempt of us to be justified by such actions.

      THIS!

      Big Le Carré fan here, BTW.

  4. Are Biden’s docs planted? Hope they check finger prints. Back to 45. He will probably be indicted but probably put under house arrest. If that happens he must not be allowed on any social media – that’s punishment for him. Shut him down!!! Shut his voice.

  5. I do believe Russia had something to do with Drumpf’s 2016 win, but I also believe that no one ever thought some like him could ever be president, myself included. I voted for Hillary in 2016 not because I wanted to, but because I knew Drumpf to be a malignant narcissist, having been raised by one myself. Democrats didn’t want either of the candidates in 2016, so we just didn’t vote. That was a mistake that cost the country dearly, and in 2020 we voted in numbers that were never higher. We were lucky to get him out because his cult never voted higher either. Very scary times we’ve yet to recover from unfortunately, but the 2022 midterm results were fantastic for democrats.
    Drumpf is suffering from narcissism collapse at this point in time. The losses he’s suffered since January 6th and beyond has been devastating to someone who tries very hard to convince himself and the public that he is a winner, a strongman, and the only one who can fix everything. Lashing out, name calling, threatening, bullying, and attacking peoples family when cornered has always worked for him before, and it’s the only defense narcissists understand. He’s afraid…everyone can see that just from his True Lies, aka “truth” social posts that are becoming more deranged every day.

  6. One thing worth mentioning. Mueller didn’t say Trump was innocent. He said he found no evidence of collusion. Now reason being here that Mueller found ten counts of obstruction. That’s why he didn’t find any collusion. And he also said he wouldn’t charge a sitting president. Well, Trump ain’t a sitting president anymore.
