The “bipartisan” group of congressional leaders known as the “Gang of 8” which includes Chuck Schumer, dirtbag Mitch McConnell, Sen. Marco Rubio, Nancy Pelosi, Kevin McCarthy, Sen. Mark Warner, Pencil-neck Adam Schiff and Rep. Mike Turner. It seems they are making a comeback as they have requested access to the various documents that were seized by the FBI in the raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate two weeks ago, according to two people with direct knowledge of the demand.
The DOJ and FBI have yet to explain why it was necessary to raid Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate for documents a year-and-a-half after President Trump left office.
Newsmax stated in a report released last Friday that FBI agents took a total of 11 sets of classified documents, with some being marked “top secret.” The Department of Justice stated that prosecutors met the guidelines for probable cause to believe that Trump may have been in violation of the Espionage Act.
The inquiry from the “Gang of 8” comes as lawmakers from both parties seek to learn more about the unprecedented investigation into the former president. And it suggests that Congress is unwilling to be a bystander in the political and legal fallout following the FBI’s Aug. 8 search of former president Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home.
It follows a similar request from Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Mark Warner (D-Va.) and Vice Chair Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), two Gang of 8 members who asked the nation’s top intelligence official to draw up an assessment of possible national-security risks related to Trump’s handling of the sensitive documents.
This is all smelling a whole lot like a political attack against Trump. What was the goal of such an assault on a former sitting president? Making it so he cannot run for office again in 2024.
I think we all have an appropriate idea of what this was all about, At this point, the focus should be on fighting back against this nonsense. If Trump doesn’t take legal action, which it seems he is planning to do, it would mean allowing the Federal Bureau of Investigation to get away with a major political attack against someone the federal government views as an opponent of the current president.
