As we've stated on a few occasions, one of the big allegations that led to the FBI raid at Mar-a-Lago, was that President Trump had classified and top secret documents at the estate that were related to nuclear weapons.
However, what we see in new documents does not reflect this narrative.
According to the Daily Wire,
The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida on Friday unsealed unredacted copies of the FBI search warrant and receipts of items taken from Mar-a-Lago Monday during an FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s residence.
Nowhere on the warrant or on the receipts of items taken are “nuclear weapons” explicitly mentioned. The documents, which are relatively undescriptive and mostly avoid specifics, do refer to “top secret” information and say Trump is being investigated in part for potential violations of 18 U.S.C. section 793. This section of the U.S. code deals with “obtaining information respecting the national defense with intent or reason to believe that the information is to be used to the injury of the United States, or to the advantage of any foreign nation.”
Politico hedged in its flagship newsletter, Playbook, on Friday morning, while blurbing the WaPo report. The outlet noted that anonymously sourced reports on the former president are often exaggerated or false. “There were few other nuke details in the piece, and we’ve seen enough Trump scandals in the last seven years to know that sometimes potentially explosive allegations from anonymous sources fail to detonate. But Trump himself was conspicuously quiet about the story,” Playbook noted.
I've got to be perfectly honest, he does have a point here about President Trump. I love the guy, but he is a little quieter about it than you would expect. While I am still VERY suspicious about these nuclear allegations in that I don't really believe them, it does give me pause because he's not being more vocal about dismissing the nuclear allegations than he is.
That said...what if this was a setup? What if this was a setup not by the Democrats and the FBI, but what if this was a setup by President Trump himself to find a leak within his own circle? I could definitely see that being something that he would do. I think that this is going to get very interesting still, but we'll see soon enough whether these allegations are true or false.
