JFK famously said that if you have a political liability you should “hang a lantern on it.”
drumpf often does him one better and illuminates his guilt with a million-megawatt Klieg light…
Nothing could confirm Trump’s guilt more than this statement this morning suggesting the FBI planted evidence. He got caught and he knows it. This is what guilty people say. Expect this to be the new GOP talking point. pic.twitter.com/vLhs4FacNQ

The Secret Service and Trump’s lawyers were present for the search, and I believe the FBI would have recorded the entire search. This isn’t their first rodeo.

Exactly right, Chidi, and the SS has confirmed. But we know that drumpf will lie about anything, even with his hand in the cookie-jar.

Fox News speculates a possibility; Trump jumps on it; Fox reports Trump said it; Republicans claim it as fact; rinse and repeat.

Yep. Only sometimes it’s vice versa.

What "big disputes" with Clinton and Obama? As I recall, there has only been 1 attempted insurrection in the past 100+ years, and it wasn't either of them.

According to trump and the Republicans, when the FBI was investigating HRC, it proved she was corrupt. Now that they're investigating him, the FBI is corrupt. 🙄

Funny how that works, Rita.
It’s why he said “hopefully”. He’s not saying they planted anything just yet. But when it comes out what they found he can go that route. He knows what they have.

And there it is “the FBI planted the evidence” https://t.co/2pktcl1TTS

Trump is just stating what he saw on an episode of Law and Order…
Also the victimhood talk is seriously tired and utterly played out

Learn, people. Learn. Trump has nothing left — but lies.
But what ‘trump is gonna do, is just declare the FBI planted evidence. Right? He’s gonna declare the FBI planted evidence. But that doesn’t mean the FBI planted evidence. He’s just gonna say the FBI planted evidence.’ pic.twitter.com/UDqMJnp92r

1) Couple of thoughts –
For the search warrant to be approved, there would need to be “freshness” of info…not “the evidence was there last year”.
New reporting shows DoJ has subpoenaed MAL CCTV footage for past two months.
The FBI is looking at a recent matter/event.
— Shelley Kelly’s Cheese and Jellies (@MainelyGill) August 10, 2022
That’s a good point. Something must have happened recently that made Garland and the DOJ realize that ignoring the problem just wasn’t viable any more…
His lawyers did not have the clearance necessary to see or review those documents. The reason the government wants the surveillance tapes from Mar-a-Lago is to see who else who shouldn’t have seen them were given access to our secrets.

“Without any witnesses…” which he understands because it’s been his modus operandi since he was mentored by Roy Cohn. Remember his grabbing the notes from his Putin meeting so no one could see them?
