Andy McCarthy makes a good argument in the NY Post that the raid on Mar-A-Lago was an industrial-scale fishing expedition. For exactly what, I don’t know. I don’t think the DoJ knows either.
The left is terrified by the thought of PDT v2 (or PRDS, but they aren’t nearly as ready to act against him. DeSantis will have to wait, for now.) The Jan. 6 hearings are an embarrassing flop — they won’t stop Trump that way without something new.
The National Archives documents angle is an excuse. Jonathan Turley on Fox noted that custody of at least some of the documents had been resolved and the two sides were talking. That process had a long way to go before a raid was called for. Note that the Feds hauled out things indiscriminately, opened every safe, and carted all of it away to sort thru at their leisure. They weren’t looking for something specific.
No, what they want is something new to tie DJT to Jan. 6 in a way they can prosecute. It doesn’t have to be straightforward – at this point anything will do.
I know, it’s Andy McCarthy, Mr. Rear Guard for the DoJ himself. Still, read the article, it’s sound reasoning.Published in
