Is Anyone Really Surprised?

On Wednesday, PJ Media posted an article about the August 8 raid the Trump estate at Mar-a-Lago. It has become more obvious that the Democrats were hoping to find something that would end the support for President Trump. Well, aside from using the Department of Justice for political purposes, the Democrats have been left with egg of their faces.

The article quotes The Washington Post. The headline in The Washington Post article is:

Investigators see ego, not money, as Trump’s motive on classified papers

Seems a bit snarky to me. If you had been President, wouldn’t you save mementos of significant things that had happened during your presidency or things that you were proud of accomplishing?

The article at The Washington Post states:

Federal agents and prosecutors have come to believe former president Donald Trump’s motive for allegedly taking and keeping classified documents was largely his ego and a desire to hold on to the materials as trophies or mementos, according to people familiar with the matter.

As part of the investigation, federal authorities reviewed the classified documents that were recovered from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home and private club, looking to see if the types of information contained in them pointed to any kind of pattern or similarities, according to these people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation.

That review has not found any apparent business advantage to the types of classified information in Trump’s possession, these people said. FBI interviews with witnesses so far, they said, also do not point to any nefarious effort by Trump to leverage, sell or use the government secrets. Instead, the former president seemed motivated by a more basic desire not to give up what he believed was his property, these people said.

PJ Media notes:

Not only did the FBI not find any nuclear bomb codes, but they also found no evidence that Trump was looking to “leverage, sell or use the government secrets.”

So Trump wasn’t selling nuclear secrets on Craigslist after all. Who knew? Everyone. And that likely includes the Department of Justice and the FBI.

Needless to say, WaPo couldn’t just admit the “Trump has nuclear secrets for sale” flapdoodle was the latest Hail Mary pass to send Trump to prison and that it proved to be another flaccid member of the “get Trump” orgy. They threw the idea in near the very end that they still might come up with something juicy:

PJ Media concludes:

In other words, the “Trump is selling nuclear secrets” lie is over. He kept a few tchotchkes from his four years serving as the greatest president in recent history. The nerve!

Please forward this article to your liberal sister harpy-in-law and her blue-haired, trans-pansexual, gelding lady-boyfriend who clung like sad, tragic barnacles to the embarrassing lie that Trump was trying to sell nuclear missiles to the Kaiser — or whatever it is they needed to believe.

Even if this information is shouted from the rooftops, there will be people who will hang on to the lie as if it were true. Trump derangement syndrome is real. The thing people need to understand is that if President Trump is not the candidate in 2024, there will be a new derangement syndrome attached to whomever the Republican candidate is (if he is not part of the uni-party). It really isn’t about Trump. It’s about destroying any threat to the uni-party in Washington.
