Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, September 10, 2022

Tara Dublin: Just over a month after FBI agents served a legal search warrant at Mar-A-Lago to retrieve boxes of classified documents Trump took from the White House, legal experts and others are calling for a similar search of the Bedminster residence after a new video was released that shows Trump's staff loading boxes onto a private plane in Palm Beach, Florida on May 9th.

Video from May 8, 2021 shows Trump boarding a jet from Florida to Bedminster with multiple boxes bearing a strong resemblance to boxes of top secret materials found at Mar-a-Lago. On May 6, NARA had contacted Trump's team saying documents were missing and may be at Mar-a-Lago.
Donald Trump is an ongoing national security threat and the FBI needs to search all his domestic properties for purloined documents asap.

Holy S**t.

This just doesn't end.

Wow.

It's time for a full on search, rip everything to shreds, find every single document. Make that judge in Florida eat her "decision", too.

Is the Classified Documents Affair going to turn into a typical saga of fmr Pres Trump, i.e., the more evidence that is surfaced, the worse it looks for him?

... Just over a month after FBI agents served a legal search warrant at Mar-A-Lago to retrieve boxes of classified documents Trump took from the White House ...

On the other hand, here's a summary of how sensitive documents are handled in Congress....

Not Mar-a-Lago: Congress' secrets in sealed rooms, lock bags
drudge.com

..Security-sealed rooms. Lock bags. And in the most rare of circumstances, the ability to handcuff a document pouch to a messenger to transport the nation's secrets.

These are some of the ways Capitol Hill keeps classified documents secured, an elaborate system of government protocols and high-level security clearances that stands in stark contrast to the storage room stash of secrets at Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida....

When members of Congress want to peruse classified materials, they descend deep into the basement of the Capitol to a sensitive compartmented information facility, known as a SCIF. Other SCIFs are scattered throughout the Capitol complex.

If documents need to be ferried in or out of secure locations, they are typically transported in a lock bag, a briefcase-sized pouch under lock and key.

Sen. Bob Casey, D-Penn., a member of the Intelligence Committee, said staff will often use a lock bag even simply to transport materials from committee offices to a SCIF some 30 feet (9 meters) away.

"The idea that anyone would leave any building or any room with those documents not secure -- it's just, the word is, unfathomable," Casey said in an interview.

In rare instances, a document pouch can be handcuffed to a person's wrist for travel, though several senators and staff said they have never seen that happen....

A distinctly different view (not a serious article, I hope)...

Memo To All Housekeeping, Kitchen, and Dining Room Staff At Mar-A-Lago (August 27, 2022
medium.com

...As you are aware, our establishment was recently visited by a group of individuals who removed numerous boxes from the second-floor linen closet, the DJ booth in the bar, and other locations. In spite of what you may have been advised by SENIOR PEOPLE in the Organization, this event was not a scavenger hunt for a Men In Black cosplay convention.

As a result of this unfortunate misunderstanding, we will be making changes to some operational processes here at Mar-a-Lago.

- - - The only reading material left in guest suites should be room service menus, guides to the in-room entertainment system, and remaindered copies of Art of the Deal. The practice of placing Daily Presidential Intelligence Updates on pillows has been discontinued.

- - - Internet access will no longer include automatic login to the Department of Defense secure servers.

- - - Flyers featuring detailed blueprints of the Area 51 military base, with alien storage facilities highlighted, have been removed from the "Fun Things To Do!" brochure stand in the main foyer.

- - - The "Top Secret US Intelligence" category has been dropped from the Tuesday night bar trivia competition.

- - - The Friday night English-style fish and chips special will be served wrapped in newspaper, not documents detailing the names of CIA intelligence assets in the Asia-Pacific region.

- - - Under no circumstances should guests be provided with the codes to the nuclear arsenal, even if they call the front desk and say they forgot their copy at home.

Also, please be advised that Ivan, Oleg, Tatiana and Mei Lin are no longer employees of Mar-a-Lago and should not be permitted entry if you see them outside the grounds....

After what was found at MAL, I'd agree that a similar search of Bedminster should occur.

Safe to assume Trump has hidden documents in many places. Now it comes down "why?" the reason behind all of this could end up being the most serious threat to national security. When it comes to national security it probavly requires rgat we work from the position of worst case scenario. At this point trump should be lockrd

Exactly.

That is my main, and most strong, concern is this unfolding drama.

How is the United States now less safe because of what a former President has done?

Let that question sink in.

A President of the United States may have intentionally have reduced the national security of the United States.

Intentionally.

Intentionally.

Intentionally.

If it's true he endangered the national security of Israel, well...

Mossad might make our little national problem go away.

While a search needs be done just to satisfy it's not there any more, only a fool would think he'd have left them there after the Mar-a-largo search. There's no telling where those documents are now but to me it would seem unlikely they remained there.

I think it goes beyond that.

How will other allies view sharing secrets with the United States when there may be a president who treats those secrets so, let's say, casually?

It is not about Israel. It is not about any one country.

It is about how the United States may have destroyed the trust that our allies have placed in us.

Trust is destroyed in seconds, and take years to re-establish.

Maybe the gators would like a fat piece of the Donald? They'd probably like a big chunk of Donny smeared in McDonald's 'hamberder grease'...

Trump did it for the same reason Hillary kept her own mail server. Our political leaders don't trust the deep state. Even Hillary, a tool of the deep state couldn't fully trust them.

Lard Ass Trump is behaving like a "spoiled rotten" little boy, testing the law

How did "the deep state" make trump steal documents to keep WHEN HE WAS NO LONGER ALLOWED TO HAVE THEM, and then refuse to hand them back over and lie about having them?

"Hillary, a tool of the deep state "

Some dumbschitts will fall for anything.

Fun Fact: HRC was prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Ok Visitor is officially a troll account; there's no way someone could actually be this stupid.

I assume he just wants to "play president" at home. "Hey, look! I have secrets. I am legit!"... and then shows gov. property to some person that is stroking his ego.

Well, the main reason is obstruction of justice. He's just getting into "Inception" layers of obstruction of justice now...he's been using it for profit and blackmail. When you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.
