This will only convince the rubiest of rubes to donate more to the "legal fund."

The last few months of back and forth, with lawyers, swearing that all documents had been returned, makes the whole "Mark Meadows did it!" excuse fall flat.

Let's see which of the usual suspects tries to pick this up and run.

No. They're just throwing shiat at the wall, waiting to find what sticks. If they get *something* stuck, no matter how small, they'll ride that turd all the way through court.

This is reason #18 now? Not sure where we're at.

A lot of people are saying that Mark Meadows also forced, FORCED Trump not to return the documents two months ago when the National Archive people came askiing nicely.
 
2022-08-16 12:59:57 PM  
Side thought - could this be a good tool for the FBI to bring Meadows in and make him sing about the hotel meeting just before J6?

That might have been an excuse when they subpoena'd the records and your lawyer stated that all the classified was returned. They might have treated it as an oversight and maybe not made anything of it. You know out of respect for the office. However, when they had to obtain a search warrant because they had probable cause that everything wasn't returned, one should lose the ability to throw someone under the bus, but look who we're talking about here. We could have a continuous video of him taking something out of a safe with a big TS-SCI stamp on it,  leaving the White House, flying to Mar-a-Lago, and putting it in his desk drawer and he would still try and blame someone else.

Can't wait to see a lawyer try roll through the list in court.  At about #4 or 5, will likely get gavel right between the eyes.

Or at least charged/fined for the voter registration fraud he committed.

// he was registered in at least 3 states - which isn't by itself anything bad (people forget to tell their old state that they've moved; hell, I'm about to do it myself), except that in 2020 he ALSO used an address in NC of a place that as far as anyone can tell, he never owned OR visited to vote absentee
// and then last fall, he was suddenly a Virginia voter so that he could vote for Youngkin

I remember when an adult would give a child a severe admonishment for blaming someone else when that child was caught.  It never ended well. This is just bad comedy, especially considering the hangers-on who lap it up.

2022-08-16 1:11:45 PM  
But then why would trump's lawyers tell the national archives they had gone over everything and had no more classified documents left to return?

Did... Did they just lie?

> In the weeks leading up to Mr. Trump's departure from the White House, officials discussed what to do about material that he had at various points taken up to the residence and that needed to be properly stored and returned.

Documents classified Secret and above are supposed to be kept locked up when not  in active use.
It sounds like they were just sitting around in various locations in the residence.
Had Trump declared the entire residence to be a Secure Document Containment Facility?

It was an honest mistake.

For God's sake he was only given 2 weeks to pack after a failed attempt to overthrow the government and being "escorted off the premises".

If they had given TFG a reasonable amount of time to move out, say 4 more years, this would never been an issue.

Is what I might be saying if the FBI had searched Meadows' house.

Which they did not, to my knowledge.

donnie's best bet is to find a willing scapegoat for this - there's no doubt that a crime occurred or that he was in possession of the stolen documents, the only thing he can hope to do is pin it on someone else.

It won't work unless he can find someone who had the means, motive and opportunity to say, under oath "Yes, I took those and placed them with donnie's stuff without letting him know" - or in other words, someone who will confess to a felony. The list of people who could have possibly done that is pretty slim and it's unlikely any of them would be willing to take the fall.  Even then, it's pretty thin - donnie either knew or should have known, and thus bears responsibility for possessing things that didn't belong to him.

/I'm Eric might be willing to take the fall because maybe then daddy will love him, but since he had no legal access to any such documents it still falls on donnie

Meadows likely already flipped.
- DOJ passed on indicting him
- he's been super quiet in the media
- he is so very on the hook as a nexus point for the coup plot

It really became apparent after Cassidy Hutchinson's testimony just how close to the whole thing Meadows is. Again and again, Meadows' name shows up on text and call logs. The media goes looking and asking, but Meadows gives no comment. Nor does he join in on the Trump fluff circuit or Trump defense force. Pundits begin talking about him as if he's already talking to the feds.

Trump's people are faced with a decision: attack and discredit him (so MAGA faithful will discount Meadows' testimony if and when it comes out), or keep mum as not to push him in that direction.

I think the rumbling is he's probably spilling his guts. Time to throw him under the bus. Funny thing is he may not be the one ratting out the secret docs, though he prob has some knowledge of it. I think it was either a lawyer or secret service member. But it is still useful for team Trump to hang Meadows out to dry.

Stone might, but didn't have the opportunity. Bannon? I get the idea that he'd be happy to trade a few years of appeals & house arrest for (the promise of) $20M saudi-bucks. Thing is, it doesn't even have to be plausible... paying any of these guys to volunteer would throw enough of a smoke bomb to let trump wriggle free again.

1. There were no boxes at Mar-a-Lago
2. Other people brought those boxes to Mar-a-Lago
3. Archives could have retrieved the boxes anytime they wanted
4. All the documents in the boxes were declassified
5. I was protecting the boxes for the Archives
6. The boxes were planted by the FBI
7. Obama had more boxes
8.The documents should not have been classified in the first place
9. The documents were already returned.
10. They were my documents
11. There was a standing order that any documents I took out of the Oval Office were automatically declassified
12. Mishandled and rushed move by GSA
13. Invented hoax because J6 Committee ratings were dropping
14. Laws against espionage are wrong
15. Documents are protected by Client-attorney Privilege 
16. Documents are protected by Executive Privilege
17. Not only were the FBI wrong in taking them - they better give them back
18. The sensitivity of the documents has expired.
19. Like President Nixon said, "if the president does it, then it is not illegal."
20. I don't believe in the classification system
21. It was an assassination plot
22. Charging Trump would cause so much mayhem it would be a monstrous mistake
23. Every President takes classified documents with them when they leave
24. Mark Meadows planted the documents.

White House chief of Staff is an incredibly powerful and important position. What in his background and experience qualified Mark Meadows to attain that position?
The guy has an Associate of Arts degree from the University of South Florida and was a low level real estate developer before riding the Tea Party into Congress where he helped them to shut down the federal government.
Meadows never masterminded anything in his entire life. He's the guy standing in line in front of you at McDonalds trying to order a Whopper and arguing with the cashier.
If he *isn't* cooperating with investigators he is even dumber than I think he is, and I believe he is very, very dumb.

There's no farking way this guy just gave up national secrets by NOT getting jerked off by a russian prostitute and passing out in a mcdonalds coma. No. farking. way.

Why do i think that? Because Trump knows this has value, so he took it. Downside is, he's literally the dumbest asshole on the planet. How the every living fark this guy keeps failing upwards is beyond me.
