I look forward to hearing the reason they took the records. Someone knows and has probably already told the DoJ.

That is an interesting question. Were they after something specific or did they just grab a bunch of random stuff in the hopes that they would get something useful?

They separated their heist into two different stashes. I'd say they knew exactly what they were doing.

I'd like to know who loaded it on Air Force One.

You mean you'd like to know who paid them to load it, no? You don't think any of Lewzer's 'aides' would lift a finger, do you?

"I knew there was an investigation. It's not a raid!

With due respect, what you said is editorializing!

I'm not going to let you get away with it. These people did their job! They've been smeared as the gestapo for doing their jobs!

They did a search warrant!!"

- Ron DeSantis

He's talking about the raid on Rebekah Jones' house using Florida law enforcement agents. Jones was Florida's data scientist tasked with creating the state's dashboard for COVID-19. She lost her job. Why? Because she refused demands to manipulate the data in order to make DeSantis look good as he eased COVID restrictions during the height of the pandemic:

Jones says a superior asked her to open up the data and alter the numbers so that the state's coronavirus positivity rating would change from 18% to 10% " and the state would appear to meet its target to reopen.

She says she refused to do that manipulation and others she was asked to, and she was fired on May 18.

A search warrant was issued to seize her phone and computers immediately after she encouraged others to speak out. Jones posted the video of the raid online, which showed agents with rifles and pistols drawn.

So glad I decided to retire from government service when I did.

They are destroying our democratic institutions piece by piece.

If Trumpy regains power he will destroy the civil service. (See his executive order on rescheduling employees status).

I felt the ridiculous weight of extreme ideologies and political pressures even in my job at the Weather Service.

Leaving when I did may have been the best decision of my life.

"I look forward to hearing the reason they took the records. "

That's one question I thought never had to be asked.
