    Anti-Trump Lawyer Spills the Beans: Mar-a-Lago Raid Seeks to Keep Trump From Running in 2024

    The New American
    August 9, 2022


    The raid by the FBI on Trump’s Florida residence has nothing to do with “national security” or the “National Archives.” It has everything to do with finding something — anything — in those 15 boxes to nail him under a law that, if he is convicted, would prevent him from ever running for president again.

    The hubris of Marc Elias — who served as Hillary Clinton’s top lawyer in her failed 2016 presidential campaign and was invested heavily in almost all of the Deep State’s attacks on Trump since then — not only may be his undoing, but also may help propel Trump into the presidency in 2024.

    On Monday — 48 years to the day after President Nixon resigned from the presidency — the raid on Mar-a-Lago was followed by rejoicing by Elias on Twitter:


    The media is missing the really, really big reason why the raid today is a potential blockbuster in American politics.


    This revelation was followed by a screen shot of U.S. Code Title 18, Section 2071, with the following text highlighted:


    [Anyone] having the custody of any such record [filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States], proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. [Emphasis added.]


    On the surface, it appears that the FBI could either find, or create, evidence that could be used to charge the former president under this law.

    But a closer look reveals that Hillary Clinton escaped prosecution under this identical law when she destroyed those highly sensitive personal emails. In fact, then-Attorney General Michael Mukasey sought clarification and found that “disqualification extends only to statutory or appointed offices, but not to any constitutionally-mandated or elected positions.”

    Since Trump was elected and not appointed, he could run in 2024 even if he were in jail.

    But that is highly unlikely, as Elias noted in a follow-up tweet:


    Yes, I recognize the legal challenge that application of this law to a president would garner (since Qualifications are set in the Constitution).

    But the idea that a candidate [Trump] would have to litigate this during a [presidential] campaign is in my view a “blockbuster in American politics.”


    On the contrary, it could turn out that the raid on Mar-a-Lago was the greatest law-enforcement mistake ever made in American history. It could galvanize Trump’s base and cement into place his reelection in 2024 while destroying what might remain of the FBI’s credibility, possibly leading to its dismantlement and restructuring by Congress.

    Trump is the Teflon President, having survived all efforts by the Clinton camp, the Democrat establishment, the administrative agencies (i.e., the Deep State), the NeverTrumpers, the sold-out media, and the RINOs to get rid of him. In announcing the raid on his Florida residence, Trump said:


    After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate.

    It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024.


    His announcement that he will run for re-election in 2024 is expected shortly. Until then, this three-minute ad that he released following the raid will suffice:

    Former Prosecutor: FBI Raid on Trump Not About Docs. Agents Sought Evidence of Link to J6 Protest


    The New American
    August 10, 2022


    The FBI did not raid President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate to retrieve documents he wrongly took from the White House after he “lost” the 2020 election.

    Rather, former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy says, the FBI used that excuse to cover the agency’s real goal: to find evidence with which they can link Trump to the mostly peaceful protest at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, which Democrats falsely call an “insurrection.”

    Federal prosecutors would then use that information to indict Trump for one or more crimes.

    And frighteningly, as Legal Insurrection’s William Jacobsen observed, the government is moving on all fronts. Yesterday, the FBI seized U.S. Representative Scott Perry’s personal phone. Several congressmen, including GOP leader Kevin McCarthy, received subpoenas to testify before the January 6 “insurrection” committee, which is led by a former insurrection sympathizer.

    The Democrats’ goal: Stop Trump from running for president in 2024, and make him the issue in November’s midterm elections.

    Tom Renz: FBI Mar-a-Lago Raid Is a Political Attack on Trump

    The New American
    August 10, 2022


    Based on what is known so far, the unprecedented raid on Mar-a-Lago, President Donald Trump’s home in Palm Beach, Florida, was legally shaky and unjustified, said attorney Thomas Renz to Veronika Kyrylenko of The New American magazine.

    The search was an act of desperation by the corrupt Washington establishment to bring down a political opponent who adheres to the America First agenda that is incompatible with its own destructive policies.

    Mr. Renz argued that the federal justice system has become extremely politicized and should be thoroughly reformed.

    That's a wonderful goal, but using 18 USC 2071 may not get you there. The statute is probably unconstitutional because it adds a qualification (in a negative sense) to being President in addition to those specified in the Constitution, something Congress has no authority to do.

    c'mon guys - it's his wife's wardrobe where trump keeps [kept] his "golden shower" videos and anything else here is a sideshow.
    * i didn't read the article so if the article is about dt's fetish videos and another excuse beside senility, sorry

    i'm getting a kick out of how some perceive this as step toward justice while others see it as a banana republic revenge act (cry me a f#cking river). and it's gonna cost a lot of freshly printed money to "investigate." taxpayer funded political theater. trumpers kind of worry me as much as the seattle city council types. i'd rather not give either of them another excuse to get riled up

    This is the kicker:

    If it's a kicker, it's wide left. Congress has no authority to add a disqualification to the office of the Presidency, a Senator, or a Representative. See Powell v. McCormack, 395 U.S. 486 (1969). The qualifications to be President, a Senator, or a Representative are spelled out in the Constitution, and the only areas in which a person can be disqualified from serving in such capacities are in cases of impeachment and insurrection.
