Trump Claims ‘Classified’ Documents Were Taken From His Mar-a-Lago Property

The legal raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate was prompted via a search warrant, obtained with the hope of discovering evidence officially tying Trump to the crimes committed on January 6th, 2021. Now, CNN has reported that more than 20 boxes of files, “binders of photos, sets of classified government materials and at least one handwritten note,” as well as “four sets of ‘top secret’ documents, three sets of ‘secret’ documents, and three sets of ‘confidential’ documents” are now in the FBI’s possession. 

In a typical Trump fashion, the former president has declared this search of his home as a “hoax,” demanding on Truth Social “Release the documents now!” and insisting that this raid is a left-wing scheme. He even went a step further and claimed that all the documents obtained from his own home “have been drawn up by radical left Democrats and possible future political opponents, who have a strong and powerful vested interest in attacking me, much as they have done for the last 6 years.” 

It has been heavily speculated that Donald Trump announced his plan to rerun for President in 2024 as a ploy to avoid going to jail, but the confidential information found in these confiscated documents may halt Trump from even making it to the campaign trail for the second time around. Not only are the documents that were found possibly incriminating, with reports that there is revealing information about nuclear weapons and collusion with Russian President Vladmir Putin, but many files stashed in Florida are government property and were never meant to leave Washington D.C. in the first place. 

Despite the extreme protest from Trump supporters of the “unethical nature” of this raid, CNN has made it crystal clear that all actions taken by the FBI were completely legal, and “[federal Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart] authorized the FBI to search what the bureau called the ‘45 Office’ as well as ‘all other rooms or areas’ at Mar-a-Lago that were available to former President Trump and his staff for storing boxes and documents.” While I can’t imagine far-right conservatives abandoning Trump any time soon, it is personally insane to witness the absolute incredulous nature of Trump supporters in recognizing the crimes that he committed himself, compared to the legality of the actions the FBI is taking in this investigation.

    Herschel Walker: What Happens Next?

    Late Monday, a surprise of the 2022 election landed, and it’s one that could have major implications for control of the Senate. According to the Daily Beast, Georgia Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker paid for a girlfriend’s abortion in 2009. This is shocking since Walker has campaigned on an antiabortion platform – with no exceptions – and has said that he has always opposed the rights.

    What Western Media Excludes in their Coverage of the Russia Ukraine War

    he U.S. media’s reporting on the Russian-Ukraine war fails to recognize the most rational solution to the crisis: negotiations. Throughout reports, Western media has misrepresented the extent of the global community that supports increased warfare in the region. One example of a mischaracterization conducted by western media occurred in reports of a meeting between the Indian President, Modi, and Putin. The west reported on a series of words where the president said, “war is not the answer,” illustrating Modi’s opposition to Putin’s position. However, in reality, once the transcript of the meeting is read, it becomes clear the meeting between the two leaders was one of support, where Modi repeatedly vocalized the positive relations between the countries and India’s approval of Russia’s policy in Ukraine.
