    Sorry I'm a little behind but Trump had nuclear secrets at MAL? And presumably was going to give that info to the Saudis?

    I think speculation is running off the rails at this point due to multiple unnamed source tweets from access journalists. Hard to tell what is accurate news and what is posturing from Trump world through leaks.

    Undercover MAGAs have their defenses up this morning at work.

    People who say “I definitely don’t watch Fox News”…

    “I’m torn between not wanting him to run in the next election and the checks and balances on the government being able to just go do this stuff”

    “but if he took nuclear secrets, the check and balance is they go take it back and he’s in trouble right?”

    “you know all this stuff is so spun by the time it gets to us. You watch Fox News or CNN and it’s a completely different story.” (Didn’t even fight this one)

    “well I don’t think there’s really any spin to “taking nuclear secrets” right”

    “sounds like you’ve been watching CNN”.

    tough day in the dick sucking factory for GOP coming up.

    I think it is pretty safe to say that sensitive, potentially nuclear related, documents were at MAL, what exactly and why is all speculation at this point imo.

    Counterpoint, give me any other reason why he would need to have top level classified nuclear secrets at his residence 1.5 years out of the White House. I willing to say that the stuff he did have, there was no legitimate reason a President would ever need to have that at his personal residence even when he was President.

    I believe there is a big group of them that don’t really like Trump, but are scared to lose his base if they oppose him or question him. Sure they are pussies for that, but it gives me hope that they may see something that even they can’t justify supporting just to keep the trump base on their side

    You know that's not true. They're in a weakened position. They'll wait for the warrant to be released and attack that, not for what is in it, but for the information that has to be left out due to investigative/national security purposes.

    This is probably true, but given that they don’t want to lose his base (and they probably fear for their lives at some level if they go against Trump), I 100% expect them to say it was planted, or improperly taken, or some other bs. The DOJ just needs to stay focused on the facts.

    Both are unconfirmed. First thing was a leak from sources "in the know." Second thing is pure speculation based on what Trump would obviously do if the first part is true

    eh, I think the simplest explanation will be what they cling to, "he didn't know what was in the boxes". It marries well with the already established evidence planting narrative.

    Yeah the “he didn’t know any better” and comparing him to a wacky cartoon character child will also be a Fox News angle. “We all know he’s a big goofball. There’s no reason to suspect he was doing anything wrong and if he did he obviously didn’t know he was.”

    I will say that a trump team leaking the nuclear secrets thing for the media to foam at the mouth over and end up being a huge ruse that puts the nail in the coffin of people's trust of 'mainstream media' would be quite the move, but that would require some level of competence and coordination that they've never once demonstrated

    Trump is definitely dumb enough to sell nuclear secrets, but I also think he’s too dumb to actually do the true conversations about nuts and bolts. If the nuclear secret stuff is true (which I’m still a little dubious about the scope), I wouldn’t be surprised if yet another one of his underlings takes the fall because it wasn’t actually Trump who discussed the terms of the deal.

    Like, the dude has never completed a fully formed thought in his life without a 10 minute tangent about his smart uncle or whatever. I wouldn’t be surprised if the DOJ declined to prosecute him because the only documented evidence didn’t come from Trump himself.

    I also wouldn’t be surprised if this case is actually Trump just hoarding a bunch of top secret documents that show his ineptitude and stupidity, and he didn’t want the Biden administration seeing it.

    I’m concerned that this will be the 9 millionth time that Trump committed a clear and obvious crime, but because it ended up not being the exact worst case scenario as reported in the beginning, the media then reports that this was a bust and the DOJ decides to be spineless.

    Washington Post has sniffed out previous disinformation efforts so I’d like to think they have trustworthy sourcing on this. We’ll probably know more later today either way.

    It was in his safe. His cronies are already running a defense of “the President can declassify anything at any time.” Like, I get the inclination to figure out how he will wriggle out of this jam, but let’s let the facts play out for a bit.

    As mentioned above, yes the nuclear leaks and worst case scenario would be something the Trump team could do and make whatever he did have look less criminal. I also still have this thing where if he says it then it’s most likely true. He’s calling it the nuclear hoax and saying they planted evidence. I don’t think he’d go the planting evidence route if there wasn’t some truth to it being related to nuclear documents. He’d say there was nothing there if it wasn’t something he’d have to deny taking/having.
