Hugh Hewitt: If a sitting president is in some circumstances subject to criminal subpoenas from state officials, a former president can most certainly be subjected to criminal process by federal agents.

You'll notice that the people responding to Trump's version of a clarion call - his whining - profess themselves ready to do all manner of the gods know what, without knowing WHY the warrant was served. He was clearly correct in his assessment about that Fifth Avenue business. Very sad.

Looking at this timeline of the feds attempts to get the missing documents back from Trump, it's clear that the search warrant for MAL was a tactic of last resort:

Sorry fat-boy, you don't get to keep what you stole.

He can't...it outlines right in there what the FBI was alleging, what proof they had and the reasoning for the need for a search warrant.

27 boxes of documents seized.

No word if Ted Cruz's balls were in the safe though.

Notably, Trump - after a fierce campaign against Clinton in which he called for her to be jailed for her handling of classified material - signed a law in 2018 that stiffened the penalty for the unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents from one year to five years, turning it into a felony offense.
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!

Hoist on his own dotard pitard!

People are saying trump won't do that because there's porn involved and it's the illegal kind.

#8 The stories coming out is he is going around accusing people of being a "rat".

So fat and mobby.

He is the biggest mistake in US history.

FACT! No citation needed.

Trump won't release the information because the FBI was looking for the pizza pit from hell under which the writhing piles of illegally imported alien slave-babies are being incubated prior in preparation for The Great Harvest.

Can you prove that's not true?

Trump can.

But he hasn't.

Why?

That traitor used classified information to buy Putin's support in the election. I doubt that would go down well with most Americans. When an American depends on Russian support for election, most Americans would consider rhem traitors. I know I do. Trump will always be a traitor to me.

putin's support

"I doubt that would go down well with most Americans."

I wouldn't be so sure. There are plenty of people wearing "I'd rather be Russian than Democrat" shirts at Trump rallies and they don't get run out of the place for being offensive like black protesters are. Or journalists. No, those people get cheers and high fives.

Fmr Pres Trump likely will not make the search warrant public until it is no longer useful for his fund-raising efforts.

Then he will make it public and start fund-raising from the now-public warrant.

The question is -- will the normal progression of the legal process make the search warrant (and the inventory of what was removed from MAL) public before fmr Pres Trump makes the warrant public?

Trump will hide behind the 5th amendment and the imaginary Amendment that no one can be compelled to release information that would be political suicide.

Breaking: Documents at Mar-A-Largo were seized in June as a result of a grand jury

Apparently the DOJ and NARA had had enough of his lies and executed a search warrant. It's a shame that they didn't kick down the door as they entered the place. Also, why were they not wearing FBI jackets?

They were trying to keep a low profile and didn't want to make it political.

No one would probably have even known if Trumpy hadn't publicly whined about it. Since he is the one who made it public he is obligated to tell us why it happened and release the warrant. But he won't. Because lie and deny is his modus operandi.

18 I'm sure this was fairly amicable and coordinated by top DOJ and SS lawyers.

#18 If not wearing FBI jackets was a deviation from normal protocol, they failed in not making it political.

In these politically charged times, it is especially important to follow protocol.

No worries about waiting for Trumpy to make the warrant and the list of seized stolen federal property public.

Since Trumpy used this opportunity to make it public and politicize it and lie about it AG Garland will request release of these documents effectively calling Trumpy's weak bluff.

Naturally Fixed News is outraged.

And now the DOJ is asking for it to be made public, lol

And so it came to pass that on the third day Merrick Garland spoke.

Any bets on whether or not Trump and his new "billionaire lawyer" LOL object to the unsealing of the warrant and inventory and move to block their release?

Republicans will just shift tactics and say they want to see some other document that customarily is never produced. Count on it.

The short form just ain't good enough! They must have the long form!!

They already have. They are calling a lawful execution of a legal search warrant a "gestapo raid" and are throwing everything at this hoping something will stick. (Flooding the Zone aka Steve monkey poxed Bannin) Fixed News is outraged (as usual) and Ginny up the outrage in hopes of violence and now they want the supporting confidential affidavit that was submitted to the judge that is never ever publicly released until actual charges are made and which is then turned over to the accused or their lawyers.
