The Alameda County Sheriff's Office in Northern California has stripped 47 deputies " 10% of the force " of their guns and arrest powers because they failed psychological exams, it was reported Monday. It was "horrible" to have to relieve the deputies of their duties, sheriff's spokesman Lt. Ray Kelly told KTVU-TV.

"I would say there's a very good chance that a lot of those documents will never be seen again," Trump said before pivoting to what some may call magical thinking about the reason for the "raid." "There's also a lot of speculation, because of what they did, the severity of the FBI coming in, raiding Mar-a-Lago, were they looking for the Hillary Clinton emails that were deleted ... but they are around someplace ... were they looking for ...
