The recent revelations about the stolen documents raises some new questions

The latest reports are that a couple of Trump workers moved boxes into the storage room at Mar-a-Lago. Into the storage room, not out of the storage room. Reportedly, they were moved one day before the DOJ came to retrieve them via subpoena.

Where were they stored before they were moved? Were they stored in Trump's office, the place they found documents when they went in with a search warrant?

And what happened to the documents that were in the empty folders?

Were they moved to the Westminster Golf Club, where the Saudis sponsored the LIV golf tournament just a few weeks later?

Did Trump show or give the documents to the Saudis at that time?

There should be no ambiguity about the Big Lie, January 6th, or the Republican Party.

Republicans have betrayed this country. They continue to believe that somehow they will be able to control the fascist if he wins the next election. It is easier to believe that than to speak the truth.

January 6th was an attack upon our Capitol, an attempted coup to keep Donald Trump in power, and a planned conspiracy to stop the count of the electoral votes. It was a criminal act. It was not a patriotic act in any way. Nobody should be permitted to try and whitewash it or to minimize it. It was a despicable attack upon our democracy and it is a lie to try and define it as anything else.

Perhaps Democrats need to be more direct and confrontational about it?

There should be no ambiguity about what happened and who was involved and who inspired it and which Party continues to defend it.

It should be clear to the American people that it was not a typical tourist day and it was not the same as any other march or demonstration ever in this country's history.

The Republican Party and all those that have tried to cover up this attack upon our Capitol should not be allowed to lie about it anymore.

There is no defense for what they did.

If justice is permitted to die, then democracy dies.

The Preamble to the Constitution:

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

Trump thinks half the country are "Trump haters"...

...and, therefore, he could never get a fair shake from anyone that was not on his side.

I do not think half the country "hated" him before he was in the White House? Then they saw him for what he was - a criminal, a liar, a misogynist, a thief, and someone that tried, and still is trying, to destroy our country. A hypocrite of the highest order.

But, even then, it is not that the people hate him personally, so much as they hate his deeds. As the good book says, love the sinner, hate the sin. I think that is where most of the country stands.

He will be judged for his deeds, or misdeeds, not whether he is hated by anyone.

The FBI has always been a conservative, right-leaning organization.

While they may be the premier law-enforcement agency in the country, they have a history of attacking liberals and progressive causes. They have never been friendly to the left.

So, why are MAGA Republicans calling for the defunding of the FBI? Why would they want to clean house and make it over in their image?

Can we even imagine an FBI that surrendered its last bit of integrity and its faith in the justice system? Instead, it would swear allegiance to a person or a political Party.

Is Timothy Parlatore a set-up to get Trump off on stolen documents charges?

He says they could not get into to search for other documents, after the subpoena, because they were blocked by Boris Epshteyn?

Of course, if that is the case, Trump would have an alibi for not turning over the documents when requested.

But what would be Epshteyn's alibi? Would he be set-up to be a "fall guy", to remove the charges from Trump?

There are a lot of questions but one has to wonder if there was some ulterior motive for Tim Parlatore?

Silence is consent. Silence is complicity.

Too many Republicans are way too quiet with the attacks on our democracy and on the rule of law.

Perhaps they see it as a political advantage if they just sit back quietly and say nothing?

Perhaps they don't want to be attacked by those that are attacking America's democracy, so they stand silently on the sideline?

In truth, they are no different than the good German soldiers that marched with the Nazis during the unspeakable horrors of WWII. They are complicit.

How else are we supposed to see it?

Former Trump Lawyer Describes Conflict Inside Legal Team

https://www.nytimes.com/2023/05/20/us/politics/parlatore-trump-lawyer-conflict.html

(snip)
Timothy Parlatore, who withdrew this past week from representing the former president in the special counsel investigations, said he stepped aside over differences with a Trump adviser, Boris Epshteyn.

A conflict inside former President Donald J. Trumpís legal team erupted into public view on Saturday as one of his former lawyers went on television to attack one of his current lawyers, who has been the focus of ire from others on the team.

The former lawyer, Timothy Parlatore, withdrew this past week from representing Mr. Trump in the special counselís investigations into his handling of classified documents and his efforts to overturn the 2020 election. But Mr. Parlatore did not explain the reasons behind his departure at the time, saying only that it was not related to the merits of the inquiries.

Appearing on CNN on Saturday, Mr. Parlatore disclosed that his departure had been spurred by irreconcilable differences with Boris Epshteyn, another lawyer who has been working as something akin to an in-house counsel for the former president, hiring lawyers and coordinating their efforts to defend Mr. Trump.
