Looks like someone has decided this is his best chance to get a GQP Senate. Which also means someone is getting desperate.

I'm 100% certain an explanation was already coming, and he's not going to like it.
 
2022-08-09 7:43:56 PM  
"There was a warrant. We executed the warrant. GFY."
 
2022-08-09 7:44:24 PM  
So, while I'd like to hear an explanation (More a "This is what we were looking for/found" so I can get an idea of how excited to get) as well, we don't typically hear from the DoJ until charges are filed, right?

This is what I keep not understanding; say Garland gets in front of congress on TV and explains himself. How does that not look worse for TFG?

I get that congress is just interested in soundbytes during cross-examination and maybe tanking the criminal prosecution somehow, but I don't see how an explanation makes Republicans look better.

Maybe it's more like Turtle asking "please give us the excuse to openly dump Trump ASAP so we can try to salvage the midterms"

lol. farkers.

what are the odds that he already knows why the raid happened anyways. its not like there weren't a fair number of republicans that were involved in serving the warrant and signing off on it.

Turtle clearly hates Trump and only tolerates him as much as Trump is able to drive Turtle's agenda and absolutely no further. If he can jump on the "o no we're being persecuted" train and get a couple extra sympathy votes for (R) fascists in November, then he's gonna go all in.

He knows there would be a statement sooner or later. This way he can claim it was his demand that made them make it. He can focus on that talking point to deflect from the actual issue.

The person served is perfectly able to share the warrant for the search.  That's often what hits the news.

Either way, this is calculated to win: either drive r turnout because they gotta stop the leftists and commies in the FBI or it finally sinks trump and he can let that albatross the party has around its neck sink to the bottom of the sea.

100%. If I'm the Democrats, once the dust settles, I'm trying to show that DeSantis was involved with or otherwise knew about the raid. Then, sit back and watch the GOP in 2022 and 2024 go *splitttttttttttttt.*

Let the monster they created eat them all.

Mitch playing game of thrones here? He knows what Garland has is bad for TFG so he wants it out now so he can torpedo fatso before the midterms?

They are hoping slash relying on the FBI and DOJ policy of shutting the fark up to sow doubt.  "We're just asking reasonable questions and they won't answer them" is easy when the other side is pretty much institutionally bound to not speak.  It's like "I challenge the hermit to a world-spanning foot-race.  What is he hiding that he won't compete?"  If the DOJ and/or FBI responds, the GQP looks like farking morons - but the chance of the DOJ and/or FBI actually responding is low enough the risk is worth it.

Donald Trump is free to explain what is documented in his warrant.

Generally, they are held by statute or organizational dictat to keep their mouths shut.  You have to really hate your federal job and pension to suck turtle cock.

Just in terms of PR to regular people, they probably think it looks better that the DOJ/FBI won't say why they did it. They're not thinking about what gets revealed.  They'll burn that bridge when they come to it.

James Comey should have a press conference.
 
2022-08-09 8:09:05 PM  
Welp, now we know the fear is complete. They are all terrified that the DOJ has no qualms going after them for their crimes and scared shiatless that Donnie is going to burn them all down to save his own ass

Followed by noting that the former President and his lawyers can clear up any remaining questions Mitch might have in regards to the warrant.

TFG can release a copy of the search warrant anytime he wants to show what the FBI was seeking. If it is isn't valid, it would show that, time for fatboy to put up or shut up

And as the second-highest ranking member of the Senate, I'm sure he's been briefed on it to some extent.

As of 3pm Pacific. Chuck Schumer said he had not been briefed at all, and he only knows what he heard from news media.

The explanation should be "We are investigating abuse of privileges.  A number of politicians think they are above the law and we will be investigating every single one of them no matter which party they belong to."

To make the thing look non-partisan, maybe they could do something like raid the records of the House softball team.
