The Mind Boggles

So here we have the TOFF, who took a massive trove of secret documents from the White House, falsely claiming that they were his property and both he and his supporters claim that it is so, so unfair.

You know what's unfair? He has been indicted for 37 felonies pertaining to all of that and, unlike anyone else who absconded with secret documents, he was allowed to go free. It seems to me that most other defendants who are accused of making off with bunches of highly classified documents are denied bail, but the TOFF gets to go free on his own recognizance. He's not even prohibited from contacting winesses, which is a really common release condition.

The TOFF and his supporters are saying stupid shit like "if they can arrest Trump, they can arrest anyone." Well, no fucking shit. Steal classified documents, obstruct justice and conspire to do it, lie to the Feds and see what that gets you. (Hint: Probably a couple of decades in stir.)

There's also screaming about Biden (and, by implication, Pence) who also took documents. The distrinction that they are ignoring is that both Biden and Pence, when it was discovered, cooperated with searching and returning the documents. Neither Biden or Pence talked with aides and lawyers about hiding them, lying to the Feds and discussed schemes to avoid complying with the return demands. The TOFF did all of that. That is beyond dispute, there is clear evidence of all of that.

“Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.” -- John Adams

That applies to both the facts of this matter as well as the insistence by both Cadet Bone Spurs and his followers that the 2022 election was stolen. They cling to that lie with all of the dedication of Flat Earthers and believers in a geocentric universe.

Anyhoo, the TOFF, Roger Stone, and the usual gang of idiots called on Trumpanzees to show up en masse in Miami to protest his having to face justice for his felonies. Few did. All hat, no cattle.

Kari Lake did, Melania didn’t…is he looking to trade in one?

I love the Presidential Records Act bullshit they’re pushing, especially as it’s a complete non-starter. Might just enhance the sentence.

The indictment includes pictures of dozens of boxes to give the impression that Trump basically looted the government of every classified document in existence.
The indictment also states that the FBI seized 102 documents.
That's some "massive trove".
