Rick Scott can explain it best: I was committing a huge amount of fraud and I spread the blame everywhere and when everyone took the fifth, the government could prove the crime but they couldn't pin it down to who actually committed the crime so there was no prosecution. That's the red hat blue print.

From the Atlantic today: "In short, Americans shouldn't really know what to think about the search. We can hope that the momentous decision to search the former president's residence met appropriate legal standards and merited the DOJ's historic intervention. We can fear that the warrant represented either a politicized attack or an unnecessary law-enforcement escalation of a politically perilous investigation. But we simply can't know if the DOJ's actions were appropriate until we see their legal and evidentiary support."
That about sums it up.

All the time. Pretty routine in situations like that, actually.


Then why did he say only criminals do it? Do his words mean nothing?

Well, as everyone knows, during her many many hours of Congressional depositions,

Hillary invoked the 5th... umm. how many times?

Hillary took the hardest shots the GOP could throw at her for the Benghazi hearings. She never once invoked her right against self incrimination. 12 hours. Trump called it a perjury trap and invoked his fifth over 400 times. Huge difference.

Legitimate question: did Trump and the GOP unleash a crazy man that got himself killed when he acted upon all the outrageous inferences they knew the crazies would answer with violence.

"The former President was going to return ALL those classified documents right after releasing his tax returns. As soon as his audit was over. And after they found those 11870 votes in Georgia. And the election was reversed. And his bone spurs healed, and the trunt healthcare plan was released.

So if you are a surfer I wish you the prosperity that allows you more time to pursue the salt water dream, and the true happiness that comes from warm water, clean waves and the companionship of your fellow surfers. If you are an internet troll just spewing bs then f off.

Garland plans on showing the warrant - which Trump could have done - and has asked a judge to show what was taken. Trump knows this was a just search, but chose to make it an outrage/money making venture. More scamming of the gullible.

So long and thanks for all the fish.

Do the right thing and lose your job. Kiss ass, take the cash and ignore the people you serve.

Pretty solid party delineation right there.

Scared of what? Trump is getting what he deserves. I find your Keyboard Cowboys outrage hilarious.

And what's with the threat, will Republicans get revenge on Democrats for enforcing a well-known law? How very Nazi of you. Scum.

We are celebrating a functional government!

And laughing at that stupid piece of shit, if this is the dumb way he self-destructs.

Title of this thread, which you started, BTW:

And you guys are clearly scared. Frankly, you have good reason to be.
