The Justice Department is investigating if former President Donald Trump violated three federal laws involving the handling of national security information when he moved government records from the White House to Mar-a-Lago upon leaving office.

That's according to the right-wing news website Breitbart, which appeared to have obtained the warrant the FBI got to search Trump's Mar-a-Lago residence in south Florida.

Per the warrant, the feds are scrutinizing if Trump broke laws against gathering, transmitting, or losing defense information; the destruction, alteration, or falsification of records; and the concealment, removal, or mutilation of records.

The statute against gathering, transmitting, or losing defense information is a key facet of the Espionage Act. Earlier this afternoon, The Wall Street Journal reported that federal agents recovered 11 sets of classified information when they searched Mar-a-Lago on Monday.

According to the report, some of the classified records were marked top secret and meant to be stored in a special government facility because of their sensitivity. The Washington Post also reported late Thursday that the feds were specifically searching for classified nuclear documents when they executed the warrant at Mar-a-Lago this week.

Asha Rangappa, a former FBI agent and an editor at Just Security, wrote on Twitter that given the highly sensitive nature of the documents, it was "no wonder" the Justice Department pursued a warrant against Trump.

"DOJ, for its part, has frankly shown a willingness to risk national security, at least temporarily, in order to show some deference and courtesy (and benefit if the doubt) to a former POTUS," Rangappa wrote. "I think it's fair to say that if you or I tried this, we'd be arrested on Day 1."

>Trump tried to sell nuclear secrets to the Saudis before when he was president
Yeah anon you keep making this claim, I know, what I don't know is why you keep making this claim I've read nothing reliable to suggest it's truthful
Someone on Fox News:

It's speculation, of course. We don't know which nuclear weapon secrets he had or who exactly he intended to sell them to. Saudi's are a good bet simply because all the billions he's gotten them and they have returned to him - and they are desperate for a counter to Iran's program. Eric Shawn's guess was "Russia or Saudi Arabia" though, and I doubt it'd be Russia, given that they have enough nukes and the sheer number of eyes looking at them. I doubt we'll ever know for sure - I don't think they are quite stupid enough to jail him.
Trump's tried to give the Saudis nuclear secrets while president, then after he's forced from office, he steals top secret documents on nuclear secrets and then Trump's family and allies get 3 billion dollars from the Saudis along with that golf tournament.
You could claim it's a coincidence, until Trump stole top secret information and one of the laws he broke was the espionage act.

The Top Secret information Turmp stole doesn't just have to be how to build nukes, but America's current nuclear arsenal and capabilities are considered to be one of the closest guarded secrets and something Putin would love to have.
And while you can't take Russia off the table, since you can sell the same information to multiple groups, at least at the moment, all signs point to Trump selling nuclear secrets to the Saudis.
As for Prosecution, it was pretty clear the FBI was just going to quietly take back what Trump stole and leave it at that given they went in plain cloths while Trump was away and it wasn't reported at all. But given Trump has made it a partisan issue and there was already one Trump supporter staging a terrorist attack against the FBI, all bets are off.
DoJ want to keep the affidavit secret because they don't want Trump targeting the people who worked with the Feds given there was already one terrorist attack
>Which will the first magat response be?

The two primary road bridges giving access to the pocket of Russian occupied territory on the west bank of the Dnipro in Kherson Oblast are now probably out of use for the purposes of substantial military resupply, British military intelligence said on Saturday.

Even if Russia manages to make significant repairs to the bridges, they will remain a key vulnerability, the UK's Ministry of Defence said.

"Ground resupply for the several thousand Russian troops on the west bank is almost certainly reliant on just two pontoon ferry crossing points," the ministry said in an intelligence update.

With their supply chain constrained, the size of any stockpiles Russia has managed to establish on the west bank is likely to be a key factor in the force’s endurance, according to the update.


Ukraine is now targeting the Russian supply depots of the trapped Russian forces

The fact you have to ignore the merits of his argument shows your fear Vatnik.
I'm sorry, but no matter how you look at it, "russians are finished" isn't an argument.
>I'm sorry, but no matter how you look at it, "russians are finished" isn't an argument.
No, no. There were at least five arguments:

1) Since Russians were supposedly defeated in some battle on twitter while trying to cross the river, they are incapable of using pontoon bridges in Kherson. Hence, they can use only civilian bridges or ferries to transport supplies.

2) Russians will not be using enough ferries to properly supply themselves in Kherson, because ferries are more expensive than bridges and Russian army was given enough money only for using bridges. It can't change budget now, can it?

3) Magic HIM/HERS will blow up all Russian food in Kherson. Since Kiev had banned supplying Russians with food, nobody in Kherson will sell them any and all Russians starve.

4) This was the plan all along, and isn't a 2 day-old cope. Honest.

5) Anyone who disagrees is Ivan.

See? It all makes sense now. Russia is finished.
>Vatnik damage control.
1. Pontoon crossings and much easier targets, consider looking up the Battle of the Siverskyi Donets. Also what does 'civilian bridges' mean?
2. Right now, the Russians can pick and choose what they need the most. But the moment the cauldron heats up but they'll have to face choices over what to bring over: Troops? Munitions? Hardware? Other supplies? Normally the answer should be 'all of the above' but because the Russian's logistics are bottlenecked because the bridges are destroyed and they can't bring what they need fast.
3. Weapons from the 1980s would be magical to the Russians, also stealing supplies from the local population will only increase the chances of partisan attacks and saboteurs.
4. Like 2 days until Kiev? The fact that the Russians fell for the trap is incredible.
Vatinks not sending their best to Ukraine, and they're not sending their best to /news/
This vatnik cope is always worth laughing at.
>Be Ukrainian
>Say Kherson offensive is coming
>Russia rushes more BTGs to the area
>'Haha, take that stupid holhols! We are of grindings you to dust now!'
>Ukraine then blows every single bridge out of Kherson, leaving them viable only for foot traffic or civilian vehicles
Yet your kind will KEEP screeching about an 'offensive' that has no time line. Remember when you said that when Mariupol held out for fucking months?

Democrats inflation bill expected to increase inflation. Business owners buckle under inflation. It's not expected to slow down.
US inflation isn’t going away.
>It’s doubtful whether the Democrats’ Inflation Reduction Act – regardless of the positive impact it should have on our climate and healthcare problems – will have much impact on inflation. Penn’s Wharton School says that the bill would actually increase inflation
and has “low confidence that the legislation will have any impact on inflation”. But the good news is that government spending has significantly decreased and the Fed is no longer pouring fuel on the fire.
this past month, with a whopping 91% admitting that rising prices are having either a “substantial” or “moderate” impact on their companies.
Inflation is the top challenge facing small businesses this year, according to a report issued by the National Federation of Independent Businesses this past month, with a whopping 91% admitting that rising prices are having either a “substantial” or “moderate” impact on their companies.
The US Chamber of Commerce says that nearly seven in 10 small businesses have raised prices to cope with inflation, which is also considered their “dominating challenge”. Sixty-five percent of small business respondents in a Goldman Sachs study said rising input costs have forced them to raise the price of their goods and services this year, with almost 80% saying the economy has gotten worse over the past three months.

If you’re having inflationary challenges in your business, you’re not alone. However, there is some good news for you. And, unfortunately, some bad news. The good news is that inflation appears to be plateauing.

The big clue was when it was said that it will "decrease" inflation. 9 times out of 10 the bill will do the opposite of the claim
That doesn't mean they are going after the students. Biden semi kept his promise, semi. My guess is they will be going after all who make 28k+ a year. Basically the middle class

>Donald Trump's office told Just the News on Friday that the classified materials the FBI seized from his Mar-a-Lago estate were declassified under a "standing order" while he was president that allowed him to take sensitive materials to the White House residence at night to keep working.

>The official statement is likely to become the focus of the president's legal defense as the FBI and Biden Justice Department investigate whether he stole records covered under the Presidential Records Act or mishandled classified materials under the Espionage Act, allegations included in a search warrant released by a federal court in Florida on Friday.

>The president's defense is rooted in the legal principal that the president and vice president are the ultimate declassifying authority of the U.S. government and through executive orders most recently issued in 2003 by George W. Bush and Barack Obama in 2009 that specifically exempt the president and vice president from having to follow the stringent declassification procedures every other federal agency and official must follow.

>Trump has maintained for weeks that any documents still containing classified markings in his possession after he left office were previously declassified. On Friday night, the statement issued to Just the News explained exactly how that declassification occurred in his mind.

>The very fact that these documents were present at Mar-a-Lago means they couldn’t have been classified," the former president's office stated. "As we can all relate to, everyone ends up having to bring home their work from time to time. American presidents are no different. President Trump, in order to prepare for work the next day, often took documents including classified documents from the Oval Office to the residence.

i found a video of you

I was informed by the brainwashed vapid democrat idiots on /news that "trump would try to hide all information" but now it looks like the DOJ (because they know its bullshit) will try to hide the affidavit. The biden gestapo DOJ doesn’t want its affidavit justifying the Mar-a-Lago raid be released to the public before the midterms, but it does not hesitate to leak daily to its willing stenographers in the mainstream media. This way only its side of the story gets out. Some “transparency.” Some “rule of law.”
Its the exact same thing the gestapo did during the trump russia collusion hoax and in the end when it was all revealed it showed that the FBI knew the steel dossier was a fake, lied to fisa judges and illegally wiretaped (breaks the espionage act) the trump campaign and after that it all crumbled.
These clowns really only have one playbook for all their hoaxes.

OAKLAND, Calif, Aug 15 (Reuters) - (This August 14 story refiles to fix typo in para 17)

America's tech giants are taking a modern-day crash course in India's ancient caste system, with Apple (AAPL.O) emerging as an early leader in policies to rid Silicon Valley of a rigid hierarchy that's segregated Indians for generations.

Apple, the world's biggest listed company, updated its general employee conduct policy about two years ago to explicitly prohibit discrimination on the basis of caste, which it added alongside existing categories such as race, religion, gender, age and ancestry.

The inclusion of the new category, which hasn't been previously reported, goes beyond U.S. discrimination laws, which do not explicitly ban casteism.

The update came after the tech sector - which counts India as its top source of skilled foreign workers - received a wake-up call in June 2020 when California's employment regulator sued Cisco Systems (CSCO.O) on behalf of a low-caste engineer who accused two higher-caste bosses of blocking his career.

Cisco, which denies wrongdoing, says an internal probe found no evidence of discrimination and that some of the allegations are baseless because caste is not a legally "protected class" in California. This month an appeals panel rejected the networking company's bid to push the case to private arbitration, meaning a public court case could come as early as next year. read more

The dispute - the first U.S. employment lawsuit about alleged casteism - has forced Big Tech to confront a millennia-old hierarchy where Indians' social position has been based on family lineage, from the top Brahmin "priestly" class to the Dalits, shunned as "untouchables" and consigned to menial labor.

Heller says gun laws should be even more relaxed
Heller says he's still not satisfied with the state of gun rights in the U.S. Stand-Your-Ground laws in nearly two dozen states, for example, have too many loopholes, he says. And he fears the gains made nearly 15 years ago in the case that bears his name, and in more recent cases like Bruen, could still be reversed.

One imagined scenario that concerns him is a future constitutional convention that could threaten the Second Amendment, he says.

"Freedom and justice are the operative words here," Heller says. "Fifty years from now, things could change."

Why are they seen as peaceful and spiritual again? Their country has been hell for decades.
It's devastating to hear a child was brutally murdered by another piece of scum everyone in the community wanted to trust. When Indians smell a fair chance at life they try to snuff it out the first chance they can either through deception or simply "sitting" on their offense. The Indians in Texas believe they're closer to God but under the glass ceiling. Also, I really have time for this last bit. The best and brightest part of an Indian man is flushed down the toilet or smashed into his neighbors' soles.
It's a shithole as simple as that , firsthand experience.
Replace "drunk from higher caste water pot" with "drunk from whites only water fountain" and now you find yourself to be anti-racist.

The point they were making is that you are deciding “morality” based on ancient bigotry, that has no basis in reality.

Yet you try to justify this inherited bigotry as some sort of moral code. You justify hate by claiming that hate is moral. Yet the only basis of that hate is that is existed before you and was taught to you as moral.

They are pointing out that if existing before you is what decides morality then homosexuality has existed in nature before humans. So it is not a human construct and is therefore moral in your own definition.

Best of frenemies: Ron DeSantis stalks Trump with Republican primary tour
Ron DeSantis is touring Arizona, New Mexico, Ohio and Pennsylvania, ostensibly in support of Republican primary candidates

The Florida governor has been dubbed a ‘mini-Trump’ and was once boosted by the ex-president but a potential rivalry in 2024 has turned relations sour




On this day in 1974, President Gerald Ford pardoned Richard Nixon, his predecessor, for any crimes he may have committed while in office as the Watergate scandal unfolded.

In a Sunday afternoon televised speech from the Oval Office, Ford argued that the pardon served the country’s best interests. He said Nixon’s circumstances — resigning when his political support on Capitol Hill collapsed — reflected “a tragedy in which we all have played a part. It could go on and on and on, or someone must write the end to it. I have concluded that only I can do that, and if I can, I must.”

Democrats are stopped by a federal judge in their latest attempt to rig another election in their favor. Their attempt to bully competition off the ballot has failed

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A federal appeals court shot down Democrats’ last-ditch effort to keep the North Carolina Green Party off the November ballot, just one day before the state’s deadline for printing ballots.

It’s not the last word on the case in the courts, but any further potential ruling would likely come after ballots have already been printed with the Green Party’s candidates listed.

This means that the Green Party’s candidate for U.S. Senate, Matthew Hoh, will almost certainly join the contentious race between Democrat Cheri Beasley and Republican Ted Budd. A Libertarian, Shannon Bray, is also running.

Michael Trudeau, the Green candidate for state Senate district 16, would be included on ballots as well.

“As tomorrow is the deadline for finalizing ballot preparation we believe this decision by the 4th Circuit keeps Michael Trudeau and me on the ballot in November,” Hoh said in a statement after Thursday’s ruling by the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Michael Trudeau, the Green candidate for state Senate district 16, would be included on ballots as well.

This is the honest answer that no magat will touch because they're afraid of anything remotely resembling nuance. Both parties eagerly gerrymander themselves the safest seats possible, suppress any third party that tries to emerge, and openly take bribes (what else do you call campaign donations?). So, I choose the party that is the lesser of two evils. The one that at least doesn't try to overthrow elections via angry mobs.

How can they stomach pretending to believe the bullshit all the time? I for one don't believe Biden when he says the Inflation Reduction Act will reduce inflation any time soon, and don't feel the need to pretend to. Why do magats constantly embarrass themselves every time he says something like "maybe bleach is the cure to coronavirus?" I picked the lesser of two evils, why the fuck should I pretend to be proud of it? Fuck the GOP, fuck the Democrats, fuck Joe Biden, but mostly, fuck Donald.

Republican state officials and candidates are asking the Texas Supreme Court to take 23 Libertarian Party candidates off the November ballot. The GOP claims that they didn't collect enough petition signatures or pay the required filing fees. GOP candidates made the same move against 44 Libertarians in 2020, but the all-Republican state Supreme Court ruled that they'd waited too long, filing their challenge nearly a week after the candidates' eligibility deadline. This time, they filed their emergency Supreme Court petition on Monday, well in advance of the August 26th deadline.

How's it feel being such an absolute troglodyte that the only thoughts you can form are buzzwords from the 80's red scare? Lmfao.
You should learn what words mean before using them, Timmy.
Communism and libertarianism is only the same in the sense that they believe in a stateless society. In communism, however, all capital would be own collectively and in libertarianism private ownership would still exist. In communism a billionaire would never be allowed to exist where in libertarianism it would be allowed.
Libertarianism is not anarcho-capitalism. They don't believe in a stateless society, just a government that emphasizes liberty to a reasonable degree.

Compared this to democratic socialism, socialism, communism and anarchism, all these ideologies expressly state they are working towards a stateless society. Even social democracy, the least "extreme", views itself as a stepping stone to socialism and eventually utopian communism. Anarcho-capitalism is based on different abstractions but it has a very similar thought process.
Is this an example of a forum bot? This hot take is so low information that it's difficult to imagine a human being who could hold this opinion and still function well enough to operate a computer and navigate the internet to come here and post this.

NEAR IZYUM, Ukraine — It turns out, some Ukrainian soldiers discovered, that Javelin cases make great beds. The U.S.-made antitank missiles are packed in large, black rectangular capsules — perfect for elevating a slim cot off the dirty, cold floors of front-line positions.

Are you on Telegram? Subscribe to our channel for the latest updates on Russia's war in Ukraine.

“Make sure you mention they’re empty,” said a soldier, showing off the makeshift beds. “The last thing we need is Americans thinking they’re sending us Javelins just so we can sleep on them.”

It’s the opposite, actually: The 93rd Mechanized Brigade had fired so many Javelins at Russian tanks that they needed something to do with the pile of empty cases.

The fighting in this stage of war between Russia and Ukraine has shifted toward an exchange of long-range artillery and missile strikes. But despite Javelins being a shorter-range weapon — its maximum range is about 2.5 miles — soldiers here near Russian-occupied Izyum in northeastern Ukraine still consider Javelins an effective way to inflict punishing damage on Russian troops. Lt. Oleksandr Sosovskyy referred to the weapons as his “good buddies.”

He said the Ukrainian and Russian troops in many places are dug in on front lines just a few miles apart — within Javelin range.

“We keep burning their vehicles, and that means that a few more houses in Ukraine will stay intact,” he said. “Children won’t get killed. Civilians and military won’t get killed.”

>It was the second time in as many days that the plant, which is the largest of its kind in Europe, was hit. Ukraine and Russia have traded blame for both attacks.

>The rockets launched on Saturday night struck near a dry storage facility, where 174 casks with spent nuclear fuel are kept, according to Energoatom, Ukraine's state-run nuclear power company. Explosions blew out windows in parts of the plant and one worker was hospitalized with shrapnel wounds.

>"Apparently, they aimed specifically at the containers with processed fuel, which are stored outside next to the site of shelling," the company said in a statement on Telegram.

Jeeze, I wonder what happened in 2014 to cause the Ukies to blame the Ruskies for everything? Oh yeah, they forcibly annexed Crimea. That sort of thing does tend to make a nation a bit paranoid (and apparently justly so, given what's happening now.)

If you invade a country and shit goes down, it's your responsibility.

>Except it is Ukraine that is hiding from Russia.
Oh, I'm sure Russia is going to win this thing, only to further prove there is no god, but Russia is the "superior force" hiding its troops by setting up a base around a fucking nuclear power plant.

>The narrative about depriving Ukraine of power exists to provide excuse for attempts to cause meltdown: when nuclear power plants are being shut down (ex. when artillery is shelling them), they require major amounts of power for cooling. Russia had to connect Zaporozhia NPP to their own power network to provide this power.
You can lower the control rods on a nuclear reactor without drawing additional power (indeed with no power at all, if you have to), but it doesn't really make the plant much safer if it gets shelled. The only saving grace Russia has in this situation is that they've not yet cut the power entirely.
The frightening part here is just how many Russians believe exactly that. They've been convinced by the Putin regime that the Ukraine government is bombing its own civilians and the Russians are only there to save them. You have incidents of families split between the countries getting into heated arguments as to who is actually shelling them. You can make people believe anything, though I'm sure it confuses the hell out of the young lads when they first reach the front lines.

You are bad at this, Taras.
Ukraine already has carte blanche to murder and rob people forever. And irradiate Europe, of course.

>If you invade a country and shit goes down, it's your responsibility.
Yeah, sure. If someone breaks into my house, I get to poison city water supply and it'll be his fault.

>You can lower the control rods on a nuclear reactor without drawing additional power
And then what? The only result of this is reactor will be heating up slower. If reactor doesn't get to cool off (which requires constantly drawing energy for months), you are still getting meltdow. It simply happens in 15 minutes, rather than 15 seconds.

> but it doesn't really make the plant much safer if it gets shelled.
Shelling is not a problem, Taras.

Cracking reactor core (or nuclear waste site which is outside, btw) will simply irradiate part of Zaporozhia (and poison Dnepr, somewhat Black Sea, and slightly Mediterranean). EU will just carry on.

I'm not even sure I can fully blame them. If you don't have a strong opinion on a topic and hear the same government lies day in and day out I'm not surprised that you'll eventually believe them.
Gee, I wonder
