He’s a narcissist and projecting. He knew he had to spin it as no big deal when he said Hillary took furniture. Now he’s at that stage where he’s caught so it’s now all fake news and he’s still the victim.
I thought that was what I was doing? I didn’t suggest anything other than things that wouldn’t surprise me.
Also, what was in his safe?
You have to think how much this country's newest nuclear bomb designs would be worth to a foreign country. It's an astronomical figure of money.
Of course, they wouldn't just write a $50 billion check (or something) to Trump, it would be worked out in other ways.
Let's say he did trade those secrets to the Saudis. How much would it be worth to the United States Government to get them back? Would it mean the current President of the United States would have to fly over there and suck off MBS in front of the world, like happened, idk last month or something?
Let he who hath not received $2 billion from the Saudis cast the first warrant
Look at this liberal hack. Content is also pretty funny given where we are today
Whats the old adage If everyone you encounter is an asshole you're probably the asshole? If everything in your life is a hoax you're probably a hoax.
Idk what the wild speculation is. Wapo reported it was nuclear information they were after. Trump ain't keep that shit to brush up on his physics
You’re prejudging how he wont face any consequences for it.
fwiw (absolutely nothing) my rank speculation is that the nuclear documents will relate to the Iranian program. I just don’t see how something like blueprints for American weapons would reasonably make their way into his possession, but conversely I could easily see how documents on how the Iranian program is proceeding would make their way into a briefing for the President.
but we should know more about the documents later, which makes my speculation above kind of dumb to make
Maggie Haberman’s career subsequently disintegrating like the witch at the end of Oz.
Valid point. It could be details of how the Iranians were running their nuclear program. Would still be useful I’d imagine to a country wanting to start a nuclear program. I don’t know but it’s fun to guess
Me, preparing to counter every chud talking point the next few days:
Even if it's about Iran's nuclear program, I think the same conclusion is still reached. Why did he have that at MAL?
Or useful to the Saudis who are sworn enemies of Iran.
It honestly makes more sense that they'd sell secrets about Iran to the Saudis
Kinda weird to finger wag somebody for speculating then. We’re all speculating here.
This isn’t some coping mechanism. I’m skeptical until I see reliable information that I believe rises to that level.
All I’ve seen so far are reports that they were looking for documents related to the nuclear program. I’ve seen no reports that Trump was doing anything with that information, other than being horrifically insecure with it (which is a crime, but not one I’m sure they’d prosecute him for at this point).
We are swiftly approaching "Are the Saudis really even bad?" spin
I mean, conservatives have the same principles as them so that’s definitely an angle.
Because he declassified it in his head
I'm guilty of this. I don't think you can find a jury in this country without one Trumper that will disregard any and all evidence. Is there any process for him to face consequences without a jury involved?
according to RWNJ all we need is a good ol military tribunal
I don’t know why. They are just going to end up pretending it was a setup no matter what Trump had and was doing with it.
The GOP deal is that they probably haven’t seen the warrant themselves yet and are being told by Trump’s people to stand by and stand down for now until they issue the new set of talking points.
Yup. Trump's got 20 bullshit posts waiting in a word document to be copy pasted into a Truth social post. He's just waiting to pick the right one that will cause the most skepticism and brainrot in their base. They've known what is going to get released for days.
I feel like taking the position that a 76 year old billionaire grifter who has done innumerable crimes, many in plain sight if front of God and everyone, and has never once faced a single consequence for them in his entire life will continue to not face consequences is pretty idk…rational?
“Democracy will fail unless you hand power over to fascist” is a surprisingly popular take in the media these days.
This time will be different than the dozens of other times!
-people who are a lot more optimistic and hopeful than user pelinis
This 87,000 IRS agent shit is hilarious to me
it won't be so funny when they kick down your door!
Also, conservatives have no problem hitting every side of an issue. That way they can later say they were right all along no matter the outcome.
can you take a write off for that?
It’s funny because the people who love Trump are overwhelmingly likely to file with the standard deduction at a fuckin H&R Block kiosk at a Walmart
wont be so funny after you watch their training exercise!
If I didn't already know what team you root for, I could guess it by your pessimism/realism. I'm not trying to insult you, you guys have been through a lot.
easily, already entailed with the Public Investment Fund.
Yeah I mean yeah you are not wrong
Seems like the Rs are trying to burn an informant.
These fuckers threaten violence whenever they perceive they won't 100% get their way. At some point you have to call them on it so we can bury the real ones and expose the LARPers.
My first instinct was that it was foreign system information as well. If you piece together it being intel related and CNWDI then you basically have one conclusion. Like you, I doubt the DoE was briefing trump on blue nuclear weapon capability very often.
Selling nuclear secrets (if that's what it is) seems several levels of magnitude above anything he's done previously. He's also been fined by the government on a couple of occasions so he's not gotten away with everything
So we agree that he hangs Jared out to dry and this is a double win for Trump because he skates by on the charges and simultaneously gets rid of the competition for Ivanka’s affections.
Idk inciting a coup seems worse to me
And it's still under investigation
Where is the selling part coming from?
What are the options for why he had that information at MAL?
Proving he had the documents is an entirely different thing than proving he did anything with them also
