First Degree Conflation Isn't a Criminal Charge

“I just heard that they broke into the office of one of my personal attorneys, a good man,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “It’s a disgraceful situation. … I’ve been saying it for a long time. I have this witch hunt constantly going on.”

The president portrayed the seizures in almost treasonous terms, framing them not solely as an attack on him but on all Americans.

“It's an attack on our country, in a true sense,” Trump declared. “It's an attack on what we all stand for.”
No, Russia fucking around with our political processes is an attack on this country. Executing a search warrant that was applied for by the U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York (a Trump appointee) isn't.

Executing a search warrant is a lawful search. It's not a "breaking".

But hey, legal niceties and the truth are things that have never mattered to Trump. Every word that he speaks can be safely presumed to be a lie, including the articles and conjunctions.

Meanwhile, one of Trump's tinfoil-hat-wearing racist idiots has been placed on leave, pending an investigation.

Apparently Berman has recused himself, so at least that part of the DOJ is functioning.
