To be fair, Donnie's handler just needed a li'l more info. Totes understandable, right?

Espionage.
Nuke secrets.
What's the punishment for that?

Ask the Rosenbergs.

Just so we all know the legal precedent,
You get the chair for selling or giving nuclear information to Russians in peacetime


The chair.

They dragged it out, too
Ethyl was removed from the electric chair after three charges, only for it to be discovered her heart was still beating, so, back in she went...

And Fat boy can expect the same rigorous study in finding out.

They have a couples discount, too

why would a man who literally eats incriminating documents to get rid of them horde them?

I will literally lose all bowel control if this leads to the GOP getting pummeled in November.

The icing on the cake would be an Trump progeny and cronies deciding to eat a bullet.

I suspect he presumed they wouldn't dare raid him.

They visited and had a great time, drinking rum runners by the pool, ogling wives and daughters of the oligarchs who hang out there, and playing a couple free rounds of golf. Trump even gave them signed MAGA hats before they left.

Unfortunately one of the nerds back at HQ just couldn't leave well enough alone and got the FBI involved.

To be fair, this was a pretty strong assumption until yesterday afternoon. By the last 60 or so years of personal and American history, he really did seem to be completely above the law in that no one was willing to take the shot.

This, and bbbbbbuuuttt Sandy Berger !!!!!@

Also lots of " time for war" and " no way we can let this stand without violence"

If they ever actually do nail Dumpf, they better have a plan to put down the cult.

I'm sure it's just a coincidence that Russia invaded Ukraine a few months before this happened.

Trump did say his uncle was great at the nuclear and because of that he inherited the best words and a big uh b-rain.

He even pointed at his head to prove it.

HotWingConspiracy: Still looking to close on selling nukes to the Saudis?


I think that'd raise more questions about protocol. How or why in the hell would a president have nuke plans. Not like a damn one of 'em could read that shiat.

President: Bring me the nuke plans
Staff: No.
President: But...
Staff: I said fark off, next will be a baseball bat to the head

As did Jarvanka. Or, at least they were using personal email for government business.

Next!

Kompromat.

Trump F'd around with the FBI for a loooong time.

It's only fair if he finds out for an equally if not much longer time.

Selling America's nuclear secrets to Russia and his fanboys still think he's a patriot.

Lock him up.
 
2022-08-09 10:16:58 AM  
None of this would have happened if Trump and his staff had done their mandatory virtual trainings on record keeping and controlled materials like I have to do every year since I began working for the government.

There's no way anyone can claim ignorance on this one.

Would SCOTUS be involved?  Because they now shiat on precedent and barely care to provide a veneer of bullshiat for simply doing what they want.

They would likely protect TFG simply to ensure they can protect TNG.

That's what I want to know..

Fine. Haul Hillary in again.. right after hauling in all of Trumps kids for using their phones/emails for government business.

If it were nybody else I would say Trump held on to state secrets to use as leverage with somebody like Russia to get asylum when he finally can't avoid the law here. But with Trump he is probably peddling them to the highest bidder for money because that is all he cares about.

Yeah he needed those documents for a proof he has been working on since leaving office.

He cannot sell documents he has destroyed. He cannot blackmail or bribe people without those papers. So there.

Let me guess.  TFG told them to come back with a warrant.

Little man ought to know all about this. It was none other than his favorite crooked fixer Roy Cohn who prosecuted the Rosenbergs. He must have diamonds coming out of his sphincter by now.

He may have been shopping them around to get the most money he could out of them.

or

He wasn't able to destroy them because someone who has dirt on him told him to keep them.

or 

He is as incompetent as he has always been, but he feels untouchable because he has gotten away with sooooo much in the past.

It could be any combination of those things.

It probably wasn't evidence of their crimes. It was probably classified information they wanted to sell. They didn't destroy it because it hadn't sold yet. But yes, keeping it in his home was a combination of stupid and believing he was untouchable.
