I’m ahead of Donald Trump.
After my relatively minor knee operation that rendered me pretty much non-ambulatory in the middle of July, I have been sorting through stuff in what appears to be about two dozen boxes going back to the early 1990’s.
Now comes the FBI raiding Trump’s Florida home and office.
I see in The Spectator the following about the raid:
Donald Trump announced Monday night that the FBI had raided his home in Mar-a-Lago. One would assume the bar should be exceedingly high for the Department of Justice to execute a search warrant on a man who was previously the leader of the free world. That would not appear to be the case here. Nor, sadly, is it surprising, given the seemingly endless fishing expedition that Biden and the Democrats have subjected Trump to over the past year and a half.
According to a report from the New York Times, agents supposedly went into Trump’s home in Florida to check whether he had retained or hidden any classified documents from his time at the White House. Thus far, the only evidence provided for this is that he ‘delayed returning’ about 15 boxes of material to the National Archives (the boxes were returned in February). Trump claimed in a statement that he had been working with the government to return all of the required documents.
McHenry County commentator Bill Parrot observed:
fleeting images of body-armored & automatic-weaponized FBI agents encircling the private residence of a former U.S. President ..
eerily reminiscent of banana republic tyranny of a bygone era
perhaps desperation born of abject fear captivating the illegitimate clowns in positions of authority
dreading the inevitable tsunami of public outrage over excesses of power projection & arrogant incompetence .. crewing a pathetic ship of fools
in preparation for an unprecedented red tidal wave in coming months …
we can all celebrate the ground breaking of Liz Cheney & Adam Kinzinger’s joint used car lot sales venture somewhere between Wyoming and Illinois with their mutually pitiful political careers culminating in an unattended farewell seance

Much of any useful evidence I have is already in a landfill.
