Waiting For the Affidavit

The affidavit is set to be released at noon. It was already a one-sided affair containing no evidence, just assertions by FBI agents. We all know how trustworthy the assertions they made in their FISA warrant application were.

This will be redacted, to make it even more one-sided, if that's possible.

If they don't release this within 10 or 20 minutes, I'll put up a different post.

The Deep State bullshit, via the Deep State stenographers at the NYT:

-The Justice Department asked to search President Donald J. Trump's Florida residence after retrieving an initial batch of highly classified national security documents, out of concern that their disclosure could compromise "clandestine human sources" used in intelligence gathering, according to a redacted version of the affidavit used to obtain the warrant.

So their evidence for the warrant was based on... the documents Trump gave them voluntarily.

That's what necessitated a raid on a President's home.

The affidavit -- including more than three dozen pages of evidence and legal arguments presented by the Justice Department's national security division plus supporting documents --

Couldn't just say "37 pages long." Had to say "more than three dozen pages," to make it sound as damning and dramatic as possible.

.. describes the government's monthslong push to recover highly classified materials taken from the White House by a former president who viewed state documents as his private property.

Most if not all of them are his private property.

The affidavit lays out a timeline starting with a Feb. 9, 2022, criminal referral by the National Archives after it had retrieved 15 boxes from Mar-a-Lago. The affidavit quotes the referral as indicating that the boxes contained "newspapers, magazines, printed news articles, photos, miscellaneous print-outs, notes, presidential correspondence, personal and post-presidential records, and 'a lot of classified records.' Of most significant concern was that highly classified records were unfoldered, intermixed with other records, and otherwise unproperly [sic] identified."

Weird that I don't see anything about NUCLEAR CODES in there.

Oh, I know why -- because that was another Deep State lie, fed to a propaganda press whose main stock-in-trade is lies.

@seanmdav Sean Davis

DOJ and FBI are so corrupt that they're redacting their reasons for redactions in their justification for raiding a U.S. president's home.

However much contempt you have for these lawless agencies, it's not nearly enough.

An actual page of the release:

Go fuck yourself, US Government.
