Well, we suspect it was inevitable. donald trump was charged again according to several media.
The former President of the United States has reportedly been charged Seven Federal crime figures, although the exact figures are not yet known. However, we can probably guess that they are obstruction of justice in there.
Trump has been under criminal investigation since hundreds of top-secret documents were found in his Mar-a-Lago office last summer. The former Prime Minister is said to have taken some very dangerous state secrets, which he was not allowed to do as a private citizen. If that National Archives When they found out about the missing documents, they kept trying to get him to return it – but he and his lawyers evaded them at every turn. Finally the FBI raided the Palm Peach Resort and found a treasury.
So the proof that he had the documents was there – the investigation led by a special counsel JackSmithThe aim was to find out whether Trump committed a crime with the documents and/or have committed a crime hide the documents. If he knew he wasn’t supposed to have her and took her anyway, that’s a problem. But the bigger problem would be if he knew he was breaking the law and lied to the government about it. Hence the speculation about disability allegations. Just lying by the government to cover up a crime is enough to get charged.

That’s the big difference between Trump’s document scandal and Trump’s non-scandals Joe Biden And Mike Pence. It turns out that both the POTUS and the former Veep had documents they weren’t supposed to have in private homes – but both fully cooperated and immediately returned what they were supposed to have. If Trump had just done that, we think he would have been fine. But that assumes everything was actually a mistake…
Of course, shockingly, it’s also possible that Trump broke the Espionage Act. Yes, seriously. Since these are top secret national defense documents, there is no legitimate reason why Trump would want them in private. We don’t know what he intended to do with them – but there are accounts of what he did to them. We’ve heard sources claim the former POTUS showed the documents to visitors in Mar-a-Lago. It sounds idiotic, we know that. But even if he only boasted that he had them, it was against the law if he showed them to anyone who didn’t have a secret permit. Normal people go to jail for it. Not impeaching him just because he was president puts presidents above the law. And frankly, that’s bullshit. Nobody should be above the law in this country. No politicians, no billionaires, no one.
Interestingly, we might not have gotten this breaking news so quickly if it hadn’t been for Trump himself. He was the first to announce the charges and angrily posted alongside him truth social report on Thursday, which led to all major news organizations then confirming with their sources:
“I never thought it possible that something like this could happen to a former President of the United States… I AM AN INNOCENT MAN! This is indeed a DARK DAY for the United States of America.”
Yes / Yes. Another conspiracy theory where the entire justice system, the electoral process, the secret services, his own former employees and aides and of course the media just make up lies about him. We’ve been here before. At this point, you have to assume that everyone else in the world is involved in this grand conspiracy, or… a New York real estate mogul/reality star is corrupt. From our point of view, it’s pretty simple.
He’s also dubbed it a “boxes hoax” – because boxes sound more harmless if you don’t say what was In The boxes: top-secret, top-secret national defense documents that no private individual should have.
Trump also claims he was “submitted to appear in federal court in Miami at 3 p.m. Tuesday.” Why share place and time? As much as he has tried to arm his supporters, we fear he may try to mobilize another insurgency to stop it. Sigh…
Apparently Trump is running for President AGAIN in 2024. It will indeed be very exciting to see how a second charge (which comes with the…). Stormy Daniels one from earlier in the year) affects it. Oddly enough, no one has bothered to legislate on running for president while facing criminal charges or even while in prison for federal crimes. Crazy, right? There are about eight states where delinquents can’t vote for president, but a felon still can become President. Politics in 2023, folks!
