"The home of a former president with a history of being enthralled by foreign autocrats, distrustful of US security services, and boastful about his knowledge of secrets, is an obvious foreign intelligence target.

"I know that national security professionals inside government, my former colleagues, [they] are shaking their heads at what damage might have been done," John Brennan, former CIA director, told MSNBC.

"I'm sure Mar-a-Lago was being targeted by Russian intelligence and other intelligence services over the course of the last 18 or 20 months, and if they were able to get individuals into that facility, and access those rooms where those documents were and made copies of those documents, that's what they would do."

the article covers the accounts of both the Russian and the Chinese ladys who were guests, but there' also this:

"The guests, invited or otherwise, are not the only security concern. In 2021, the Trump Organization sought 87 foreign workers for positions at Mar-a-Lago, with wages starting at $11.96 an hour.

"Any competent foreign intelligence service, whether those belonging to China, those belonging to Iran, to Cuba, certainly including Russia are ... and were interested in gaining access to Mar-a-Lago," Peter Strzok, former deputy assistant director of counter-intelligence at the FBI, told MSNBC."

Sounds like Trump's Nuclear Doc Casino and Motel.

A spy who recruited for cheap foreign labor that has little recourse if he doesn't pay them.... all the while duping his Base into giving him money to keep cheap foreign labor out of the country.

You really can't make up worse stuff about this guy than what he already does.

And at what point do rwingers say enough is enough?

Never? Because that would be admitting they were duped.

Ya think?

In my opinion, that MAL was a magnet for spies is a given.

But the question I do have is - was this intentional on the part of fmr Pres Trump, i.e., did he steal the classified and other presidential documents so that he could barter them with foreign entities, some of which may not be very friendly to the United States?

Perhaps the best we can hope for is that Der Dotard was given some fake intel, he took it with him to Florida, gave it to some foreign spy, and that phony info came to the surface from another source. Trump woul then be in a trap of his own making. Toadies in the GOP can apologize for a lot but not for treason ...

The MAGGOTS will just dismiss any of this news of their hero being a traitor as fake news. The Russian disinformation packet that is Trump has taken hold like COVID on a fat chain smoker and will do what it will with these fools and our country at this point.
