    FBI executes search warrant at Donald Trump's home at Mar-a-Lago

    FBI executes search warrant at Donald Trump's home at Mar-a-Lago

    A legal barrier has been broken - a maiden legal voyage has been taken:
    the FBI executed a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago, the Florida home of former President Donald Trump. This is a historic law enforcement move by the Department of Justice.

    Importantly, in order to obtain a search warrant for Trump's home, a federal judge had to have concluded that there was probable cause to believe there is evidence of federal crimes on the property of Mar-a-Lago.

    This video discusses what we know about this monumental development, what we don't know, and what the DOJ should now do on the transparency front to promote a full and accurate understanding of the state of the criminal investigation that prompted today's search warrant at Mar-a-Lago.

    Former US Attorney General Eric Holder says Trump "likely WILL be indicted by the DOJ." Here's why he's right.

    Former US Attorney General Eric Holder says Trump "likely WILL be indicted by the DOJ." Here's why he's right.

    Former United States Attorney General Eric Holder just said he believes the Department of justice likely will indict former President Donald Trump for his crimes against the United States.

    This video:

    1. explores why Holder is right;
    2. surveys some of the crimes for which Trump likely will be indicted;
    3. reviews the elements of the granddaddy of all crimes against our nation - treason; and
    4. sets out why Trump's conduct on and around January 6, 2021, satisfies the legal elements of the federal offense of treason.

    Lesser known fact: although most people remember Eric Holder as President Barack Obama's Attorney General, it was President Ronald Reagan who first nominated Eric Holder to be a judge on the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.

    First, Secret Service deleted 1/6 texts, then the Dept. of Homeland Security, now Defense? Really?

    First, Secret Service deleted 1/6 texts, then the Dept. of Homeland Security, now Defense? Really?

    After the troubling revelations that both the United States Secret Service AND the Department of Homeland Security deleted text messages that would have provided criminally important evidence regarding the insurrection, the Washington Post just reported that the Department of Defense has also deleted/destroyed January 6 text messages as well.

    With each passing day, these actions look more and more like a concerted effort to purge incriminating information relating to the waning days of the Trump administration.

    This video discusses some of the important questions that need to be asked, like, did other executive branch agencies also "wipe" their cell phones, or was it only the agencies in which Trump loyalists and lackeys were embedded, seemingly to assist Trump in his corrupt efforts to retain power?

    Trump's lawyers preparing for him to be indicted; looking to blame Trump's crimes on "fall guys"

    Trump's lawyers preparing for him to be indicted; looking to blame Trump's crimes on "fall guys"

    New reporting in Rolling Stone reveals that Trump's defense attorneys are preparing for the likelihood of Trump being criminally indicted by the Department of Justice for his efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election. Trump's team is reportedly looking for "fall guys" to blame for Trump's crimes.

    Some of the obvious "fall guy" choices are Mark Meadows, John Eastman, Rudy Giuliani and Jeffrey Clark, among others. But are these Trump lackeys really willing to take the fall for Trump's crimes? Or might they already be cooperating with federal prosecutors in an attempt to save themselves from long prison terms?

    This video provides some advice for Trump's "fall guys."

    Is a federal grand jury criminally investigating Trump? An explainer of how grand juries work

    Is a federal grand jury criminally investigating Trump? An explainer of how grand juries work

    There has been an explosion of headlines in recent days announcing that the Department of Justice is criminally investigating Donald Trump. Specifically, Washington Post investigative journalist Carol Leonnig has reported some of the precise questions federal prosecutors have been asking witnesses in the grand jury about the statements, conduct and behavior of Donald Trump. But a debate has arisen about whether the DOJ has or has not "opened a grand jury investigation on Donald Trump." That question is more semantics than substance.

    This video is an explainer of the two most common ways prosecutors open or initiate grand jury investigation and the difference between the two.

    It's time for Merrick Garland/DOJ to take some OVERT law enforcement action on Trump's crimes

    It's time for Merrick Garland/DOJ to take some OVERT law enforcement action on Trump's crimes

    For many months now we have heard Attorney General Merrick Garland and Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco saying that the Department of Justice will follow the facts and follow the law wherever they leads. With Team Trump tampering with witnesses, with revelations that text messages of enormous evidential value are being destroyed, with Trump holding rallies at which he continues to push the big election lie and urges his supporters to make their life decisions based on the false assertion that their votes were stolen from them, is "following the facts and following the law wherever they lead" the ONLY or the BEST law enforcement approach? Or is it time for some prompt OVERT law enforcement action to deal with a democracy on fire and a former president out there still trying to bring an end to our democracy? This video takes on the importance of prompt, overt law enforcement action when circumstances warrant.

Distraction

This whole week has been about trump and the republicans distracting from the huge Biden wins, governing and actually getting something done for the vast majority of the american people. Dont give these corrupt republican people the oxygen they crave - keep your eye on the ball and keep publicising the democratic acheivements
