    Trump declined to say why the FBI agents were at Mar-a-Lago, but the former President said the raid was unannounced and “they even broke into my safe.”

    “My beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” he said in a statement.

    2 things. First, "probable cause" that evidence of a specific crime would be there was required. For damned sure, a Federal Judge would not have signed their name to search Trump's residence if the probable cause was even a bit sketchy.

    Second, it's the 50th anniversary today of Nixon's resignation. Somebody has both a sense of humor, and of history.

    White House was unaware till the news broke publicly. Referring all questions to the DoJ.

    As is 100% appropriate.

    Hella good week for Biden though .

    Reports now that the raid was in relation to the 15 boxes of documents taken.

    They broke into the safe looking for some of the stuff.

    And trump would be stupid enough to believe it could never happen, and stupid enough to leave incriminating evidence where it could be found. I'll bet there was some good reading in that safe

    Willing to be the safe was more along the lines of, "Either you can open the safe, or we can open the safe the hard way. Cheaper for you if you open the safe."

    Some of us probably need to retract some criticisms of Merritt Garland.
    "Reason and facts are sacrificed to opinion and myth. Demonstrable falsehoods are circulated and recycled as fact. Narrow minded opinion refuses to be subjected to thought and analysis. Too many now subject events to a prefabricated set of interpretations, usually provided by a biased media source. The myth is more comfortable than the often difficult search for truth."

    Any evidence discovered executing the warrant can be lawfully used in the investigation of other crimes not mentioned in the search warrant too.

    The 15 boxes of documents seem to have provided probable cause, but who knows what else will have been in the safe, or stored on computers and devices, etc etc.

    Let's not get our hopes up too high.
    Trump is famous for never leaving a paper/electronic trail with his fingerprints on them.
    But, we can dream.

    If this is about the 15 boxes of documents, Trump probably destroyed them the day after the story broke that he had illegally taken them from the White House. I sure would have.

    The FBI isn't stupid and would know this. Did they have some info that those boxes were still there?

    48th anniversary (just checked), August 8th, 1974. The Watergate break-in was June 17, 1972 -- pity they couldn't have timed thing to coincide with that.

    Anything found during the execution of a search warrant may be used as evidence in the prosecution crimes unrelated to the original warrant. So I understand.

    Apparently the Trumpish forums are at least as full of violent rhetoric tonight as just before Jan6.

    I find myself thinking that I now understand why, all of a sudden, Gen Milley's devastating but unsent resignation letter to Trump was released in full yesterday.

    It's a message to the military and national guard from the present Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff about his views of the loyalty he expects of the forces, and the unflinching position defending the Constitution he would take if self styled civil warriors got active.

    This had to be cleared by Merrick Garland. It must be a search for something significant. I'm thinking this may involve national security.

    They got the boxes back a while ago. This was about what trump** kept from the boxes when they were returned. Keeping some of the stuff was a crime, but so was taking all the boxes in the first place. How much of this top secret stuff was passed on to Putin?

    I stomached a few minutes of Fox News. The line was, “If the FBI can do this to a former President of the United States, just think what they can do to you.” Fear mongering all the way.

    Yup. The FBI can come take away all the classified documents I've taken from the White House. O, wait...I don't have any!
