    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?

    Point 1:
    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.

    Point 2:
    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?

    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

    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

    Even if it's about Iran's nuclear program, I think the same conclusion is still reached. Why did he have that at MAL?

    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).

    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?

    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?

    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.
