Did we not hear something about this in 2016?
The former chief of the Justice Department’s national security division said Tuesday that the search of Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Fla., suggests that the former president could be charged with violating the World War I-era Espionage Act.
That law has traditionally been used to target government leakers, such as former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. But it also “actually has provisions that apply to essentially the mishandling [of classified material] through gross negligence, permitting documents to be removed from their proper place, or to be lost, stolen or destroyed,” Mary McCord, a veteran federal prosecutor who headed DOJ’s national security division in the closing years of the Obama administration, told the Yahoo News “Skullduggery” podcast.
McCord said that the Espionage Act is one of two federal crimes that appear to apply to Trump’s reported conduct. He could also be charged, she said, with violating another federal statute that targets anyone who “willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies or destroys public records.”
OK, this speculation, a lot of others think this is related to the stupid J6 stuff. Regardless, if Trump is charged, how will the same media and Democrats react when they cheered on Hillary Clinton actually doing everything mentioned above and being let off the hook scott free? It really is a two tiered justice system, and it will tear the country apart further. You know there was no way in hell that the FBI performed a pre-dawn raid on Trump’s Mar-A-Lago residence without the knowledge of Merrick Garland and Joe Biden.
The decision to search Trump’s residence comes at a time when the FBI’s credibility lies in tatters. https://t.co/dj0nj9nCWx

I’m surprised the Washington Post let him post this. Look, this is going to harden support for Trump to run again. Personally, I want some new blood, but, this will fire up the GOP voters (excluding the unhinged #NeverTrumpers who’ve given up all pretense of conservative leanings) to get out there, starting with the mid-terms.
