Normally I'd agree with you. In this case Yoho is clearly not trying to have any honest dialogue. Instead, it's just spamming propaganda from whatever echo-chamber Yoho calls home.

Two questions-

What about this timing is off? Assume he did steal nuclear codes after his presidency and they did not realize he had them, then engaged in good faith negotiations to get them back and he wouldnít return them. Itís been a year and a half since he left office- when would of been a timing that wasnít ďoffĒ? Right after Biden for swone in, during the impeachment trial?

2. Are you going to answer where in the world you found a Bulgaria source on Trumps fundraiser?

This kind of stuff will just get worse. More of these nut jobs will feel there is a call to arms with the rhetoric amped up so high.

Isn't every day in the US a call to arms?

A third of the people who post about politics on this forum arenít trying to have an honest dialogue. Nobody takes any notice unless the posts run against the consensus.

Selling Nuclear secrets! This is beyond my wildest dreams. He could actually be executed if this bares fruit. The last americans caught selling nuclear secrets were indeed executed.

So, uh, yeah.

From what I read yesterday, some nuclear secrets can't be declassified by even him. They have to be done by a Nuclear Regulations Committee.
If he supposedly declassified them, how would anyone know if he is in possession of them? I don't think they'd search for anything if they knew is was declassified and risk this gong show.

While I do not think the accusation of selling nuclear secrets has been publicly stated, there is certainly a lot of smoke to this rumour.

Jared Kushner's firm received 2bil investment from the Saudi's during Trump's presidency. There was some serious concerns during his term about Trump Administrative deals with Saudi's about nuclear technology that was in violation of the atomic energy act; and now the LIV Golf event at Mar-a-lago last week.

If real evidence is found of the above, Trump is going to prison. He will unfortunately be in until the first day of the next Republican President's first day in office...

Unless it was something at the level of Trump selling nuclear secrets they're not going to prosecute Trump over violating the laws around records or having classified or top secret documents in his basement..

I think Biden should pardon Trump for violating the Presidential Records Act and for illegally taking/keeping classified information. Cheeky!

Can I just say that these takes about how the FBI just got Trump re-elected or whatever are terrible.

The election isn't for 2+ years. If you think anyone is going to remember this.. 2 years ago this week - Trump banned TikTok if they didn't sell in 45 days.

Republicans didn't seem to think the timing was off when the FBI started investigating Clinton a week before the 2016 election, or when they nominated a supreme court justice. Clinton went through hours of interviews, and Donald pleads the 5th. They used the catch phrase lock her up, but this is unimaginable to do to poor Donald. This entire situation is hypocrisy at its finest.

They were at Trumps residence in June as well. Was that worse timing or better?

Hearing anyone defend him blows my mind.

I guess Obama's successor should have done something about such an egregious breach of security, right?
