    The Stable Genius likened the FBI's raiding his place (legally) to the totally illegal Watergate break in.

    I understand the warrant concerned mishandling classified information. I’d like it to come to something and keep him out of the next round of primaries. If it doesn’t (and maybe if it does) it will be an “energize the base” thing that could backfire on his enemies. The DCCC may regret that financial support to his followers.

    You could be right. The voting base of the Republican Party don’t seem to be fans of law and order. Hillary Clinton seems to have right about them. But from what I hear even the few remaining fringe moderates in the Republican Party are cool with voting for traitors who participated in the attempt to overthrow the government. Because apparently a lack of ethics is considered a feature in a Republican candidate.

    It looks to me like that's the goal. As many legal scholars and political gadflys have pointed out, conducting a raid on a former president's home seems to be missing several steps in a reasonable process to settle a dispute about what records may or may not have been removed from the White House.

    A Clinton lawyer (Marc Elias) has suggested it's probably because of the following:



    It's interesting that the above statute also applied to Hillary Clinton's use of a personal server for official business and her deliberate destruction of cell phones and wiping of hard drives, but neither the DOJ or any other government agency felt the need to go this far. That suggests to me that they're not interested in enforcing a law, they're interested in achieving a political result.

    All I can say is thank goodness that the republican platform of hating certain groups and controlling women isn't popular with a majority of voters. Nixon is probably looking up from hell right now with incredible jealousy that he was president 45 years too soon. Today's republican party would have saved his sorry ass.

    It does seem like a good idea to keep a criminal out of the primaries.

    I want someone to subpoena the Russian translator's testimony and notes. Trump--as laid out in the Mueller Report and Malcolm Nance's The Plot to Destroy Democracy: How Putin and His Spies Are Undermining America and Dismantling the West. As Eric Trump noted in 2014 (thehill.cm) "We have all the funding we need out of Russia." I certainly wouldn't put it past him to sell whatever classified intelligence he could get his hands on.

    Should this raid of DJT's Florida property yield imprisonable evidence, I can be counted on to.cook up something Haitian and serve my.immediate neighbors - my family would be.proud but that's not important. What is important is that it's the right thing to do. Rob
