It definitely was not some rogue local bureaucracy as he's suggesting, though the actual point he's trying to make is that the raid will energize Trumpers. Which... yeah, sure, but that's not worth caring about if they're legitimately investigating a crime.

That might be a dumber point he's making. Should the FBI (which is neutral) never ever ever do anything that might energize Trumpers? Even if Trump breaks the law?

You're going to see lots of stuff like this from Yang, going forward. They created this party to try to take voters from both established parties, so he'll be throwing meaningless word carrots like this in both directions.

Agreed. Yang's "centrist 3rd party" is also objectively stupid. If you line up the country on ideology 0-10, you might get the republicans at 2 and dems at 5 if you work super hard to find space in between. We don't need 3.5 with new branding. But all people like Yang know how to do is pointless #### presented as important.

Ex-president is the best gig in the world. You get to live like a fat little king with all your needs looked after. And if you crave a bit of attention, there are tons of organizations and world governments who'd pay your exorbitant speaking fee if you want.

Bottles the mind that he refuses to just go away.

I can never see or hear Jeanine Pirro without immediately thinking of Cecily Strong's brilliant impression of her on SNL.

Apparently, Trump as president increased the penalty for possessing top secret documents from one to five years to get back at Hillary Clinton. Bad move, Don.

RE: Pirroís desire to know why the DOJ and FBI ďdid this.Ē

Donald Trump (or at least his lawyer) is in possession of a signed warrant which must, by law, spell out the following:

1) What crime, specifically, is being investigated.
2) What evidence, specifically, the FBI expected to find in his house.
3) Why the FBI expected to find this evidence in his house.
4) Why a search and seizure was necessary, ie: what reasons the FBI felt the evidence might be destroyed, removed, distributed, etc. necessitating the immediate removal of said evidence.

It would also indicate which federal judge was convinced by the FBI to sign said warrant.

Trump is well within his rights to release this document to the public at anytime. It would really be improper for either the DOJ or the FBI to release information or comment on this investigation. It rarely happens in criminal cases: the prosecution and the police donít comment, information about the case almost always comes from the defense.

Also in regards to his SDNY investigation into Trump's finances, he pleaded the 5th- Who pleads the fifth Donald?

ďYou see the mob takes the Fifth,Ē he said. ďIf youíre innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?Ē Donald Trump

  • The Department of Justice charged Shahram Poursafi, 45, of Tehran, Iran, for plotting to assassinate former President Donald Trumpís national security advisor John Bolton.
  • The plot to assassinate Bolton is likely in retaliation for the January 2020 U.S. airstrike that killed Iranís top commander, Gen. Qasem Soleimani, according to court documents.
  • Poursafi remains at large abroad.
