Trumps worst accusers are the same officials who refused to prosecute Hillary Clinton for the same crime
Mary McCord is listed as one of the most “traitorous” and “hypocritical” political hacks in history
The former chief of the Justice Department’s national security division said Tuesday that the FBI warrant for the search of Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Fla., suggests prosecutors believe they have probable cause that there may have been violations of the World War I-era Espionage Act. This is the SAME law that these officials refuse to prosecute Hillary Clinton about.
That law has traditionally been used to target government leakers, such as former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. But it also “actually has provisions that apply to essentially the mishandling [of classified material] through gross negligence, permitting documents to be removed from their proper place, or to be lost, stolen or destroyed,” Mary McCord, a veteran federal prosecutor who headed DOJ’s national security division in the closing years of the Obama administration, told the Yahoo News “Skullduggery” podcast.
McCord said that the Espionage Act is one of two federal crimes that prosecutors may be focusing on in their warrant to search Trump’s home. The other, she said, is another federal statute that targets anyone who “willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies or destroys public records.”
McCord noted that the decision to search Trump’s home could only have been conducted with the approval of a federal judge (he was NOT a Senater confirmed judge but only a magistrate) based on an affidavit from the FBI that there was evidence of a crime at Mar-a-Lago at the time of the search.
“So it couldn’t be, ‘We thought the stuff was there a year ago, but not now.’ It would have to be probable cause to believe that evidence of a crime exists in that location at that time,” McCord said. “And that means that the Department of Justice, probably at the highest levels, probably all the way up to the attorney general, agreed that this was a step that was not only legally supportable, but also important to take.”
One factor that McCord suggested would be on the minds of DOJ national security lawyers is what Trump might have done with the highly classified material that was still believed to be at Mar-a-Lago. “Are we worried that some of this information would actually be shared outside of Mar-a-Lago, potentially with foreign adversaries? I’d be really concerned about that,” she said.
Hillary Clinton’s private email server hacked by China, South Korea and Germany
Hillary Clinton’s private email server containing tens of thousands of messages from her tenure as secretary of state — including more than 400 now considered classified —was the subject of hacking from China, South Korea and Germany after she stepped down in 2013, according to Congressional investigators.
The Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee has found evidence of attempted intrusions into Clinton’s server in 2013 and 2014, according to a letterChairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) sent Monday to a Florida-based security firm tasked with protecting the hardware.
The contractor, SECNAP Network Security, identified the attacks, but according to internal emails cited and briefly quoted in the Johnson letter, Clinton’s sever may have lacked a threat-detection program for three months, Johnson says.
The Associated Press first reported the news in 2015.
After falsely claiming that the Mr. Trump’s personal papers were “classified” McCord lied to reporters that the DOJ was “worried that some of this information would actually be shared outside of Mar-a-Lago, potentially with foreign adversaries.” It was an outright lie! And the fib flies in the face that Hillary Clinton’s emails were hacked by foreigh intelligence services, including China’s service, but McCord refused to prosecute.
McCord’s is the worst hypocrisy in this republic’s history
On Monday, Levin declared, “This is the worst attack on this republic in modern history. Period.”
The next day, Levin continued his critique of the Biden administration and the Department of Justice, saying the raid wasn’t about documents but about trying to find any evidence that might incriminate Trump.
“This is a witch hunt, this is a Stalinist hunt,” he said, before claiming the DOJ is “looking for a crime in search of evidence.”
“Anything they can find on Trump, anything they can hang on him! ” Levin yelled. “This isn’t about some damn document! That’s what they’re doing! And let me tell you something! This is scarier than if it was based on the documents act! They are in search to try and destroy Trump! They conducted a criminal investigation! They failed! They have an investigation in New York with the attorney general that’s gonna to fail! They have a Democrat in office that doesn’t want Trump as an opponent in 2024.”
Florida lawmaker calls for arrest of FBI agents and for state to ‘sever all ties with DOJ immediately’
Following the FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in southern Florida, state lawmaker Anthony Sabatini called for the arrest of federal agents and urged the state to “sever all ties” with the Department of Justice.
Before the American Civil War (1861-1865), state legislators also demand that their state “sever all ties” with Washington D.C.
Mr Trump wasn’t present at the residence at the time of the raid, instead issuing a fuming statement from Trump Tower in New York City. A lot of information concerning the raid remains unconfirmed, such as if Mr Trump was told in advance. In his statement, he called the action “unannounced”.
“It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats, who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024, especially based on recent polls, and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the upcoming Midterm Elections,” Mr Trump claimed in his statement.
It’s been reported that the FBI was looking for documents Mr Trump is thought to have brought with him when he left the White House in January 2021 that should have been handed over to the National Archives.
In response to the raid, Mr Sabatini tweeted on Monday night that “it’s time for us in the Florida Legislature to call an emergency legislative session and amend our laws regarding federal agencies”.
Anthony Sabatini said the state should “sever all ties with DOJ immediately” and that “any FBI agent conducting law enforcement functions outside the purview of our State should be arrested upon sight”.Florida State Rep Anthony Sabatini said the state should “sever all ties with DOJ immediately”
Mr Sabatini supported Mr Trump’s efforts to change the outcome of the 2020 election and he suggested last year that US Highway 27 be renamed the “President Donald J Trump Highway”, according to The Daily Beast.
Twitch streamer and left-wing political commentator Hasan Piker tweeted that “every day we get closer to reaching my dream of severing ties with Florida,” which would make Floridians happy, more free and prosperous.
