Donald Trump is worried he may have a rat -- or multiple rats -- in his midst. He's wondering if his phones are tapped, or even if one of his buddies could be "wearing a wire."

More from the cited article...

...Multiple people with knowledge of the situation say that as of Wednesday afternoon, Trump and his cohort do not have any evidence to support their groundless talking point that the FBI planted evidence during their search of Trump's home at the Mar-a-Lago club in Florida earlier this week.

Still, the sources say, the upper crust of MAGAland has already begun wildly speculating about who the snitch could be, if such a turncoat exists at all. On Wednesday morning, Axios reported that "Trumpworld is abuzz with speculation about which close aide or aides has flipped' and provided additional sensitive information to the FBI about what former President Trump was keeping at" his Florida estate. Later that day, intelligence writer William Arkin reported that "the raid on Mar-a-Lago was based largely on information from an FBI confidential human source."

One Trump adviser tells Rolling Stone that since Tuesday, MAGA loyalists have been asking to pass their suspicions to Trump, telling him not to trust certain individuals and to investigate them for possible contacts with federal authorities. "I'm getting a lot of messages saying [things like], This guy must be the informant,' and others ... calling for the [former] president to start doing phone checks of his staff," says the adviser. "To be honest, a lot of it feels like people trying to screw over the ones they don't like [in Trumpworld]."

Though Trump's paranoia is so often fueled by unhinged conspiracy theories, in this case, he has reason to worry....

Of course, there's the old adage, it's not paranoia if they (law enforcement in this case) are really after you .

No reason to think only one person is wearing a wire.

Can anyone imagine Jimmy Carter worrying that one of his associates was wearing a wire?

@#6 ... This is the Mafia on politics. ...

... What happened to @GOP under Trump isn't complicated or novel. A gangster family took over an organization and turned it into a criminal enterprise.

But instead of this being a waste disposal company in NJ, it's one of two major American parties....

Jesse Watters on Fox "news" is currently whining about the FBI being "Rotten to the core," invading the privacy of Melania and bringing in every manufactured scandal they can (Hunter Biden's laptop, ding ding ding) - the Chinese, and going after records retention violations, LOL.

Time to tear them all down. The sedition network is in full gear...

Why a secret service agent could have been the informant as Fox News is reporting:

Who knows the exact layout of Mar-a-Lago inside and out? Secret Service. Who is subject to a polygraph as a condition of employment, especially as it pertains to their knowledge of classified information? Secret Service (or any federal employee) ...
