So, the Biden White House waived President Trump’s claims of executive privilege to permit the FBI to seize documents that Trump claimed privilege on. If that seems odd, that a sitting president can overrule a former president on claims of privilege, well, it is. But that’s what the DOJ did. They found an end-run around the law, and used a pretext to violate Mr. Trump’s rights.
While I am angry about this, there is a silver lining in this dark cloud. Sometime in January 2025, every claim of executive privilege held by the Biden White House, all its lawyers, all the DOJ memos, all that stuff — whoever wins for the GOP needs to waive every one of them and launch a scorched earth investigation of the Biden Administration. Biden’s home should be raided (there’s already enough information to support a search warrant on Hunter and “The Big Guy’s” relationship with China). Hunter’s house, car, and everything else should be ransacked and any drugs found should result in swift prosecution (there’s no prosecution coming in Delaware).
For too long, the GOP has been “the better man” in this co-dependent relationship, and when the possibility of retaliation existed, it didn’t happen because “that’s now how we are.” That’s nonsense. The way you stop traitors, corruptocrats, and Democrats (redundant, I know) is to prosecute and hold them accountable. Even if you lose, you make them pay lawyers and make them spend their ill-gotten gains to stay out of jail.
I’m reminded of Kurt Russell’s line in Tombstone: “Tell them Trump is coming, and Hell’s coming with him!”Published in
