Spaghetti on the wall defense....


Trump offers a new Mar-a-Lago conspiracy theory as his defenses keep getting debunke​



Donald Trump continues to employ a spaghetti legal defense as he figuratively throws things against the wall to see if anything will stick, after the FBI executed a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago earlier this week.
Trump has tried to claim that the documents in question were declassified. But there is no evidence of that, and legal experts say it is irrelevant under the criminal statues cited in the search warrant application and the FBI revealed classified information was obtained.
He has tried to claim the Department of Justice could have had the documents at any time, but the documents were reportedly subpoenaed and were apparently not turned over if the FBI found them at Mar-a-Lago on Monday.
There were different things in there and the the warrant specifically


Restricted documents at Mar-a-Lago raise questions about legal exposure of Trump aides

Without any evidence, Trump suggested the FBI planted evidence, although Trump and his family watched the search on surveillance video.


And Trump falsely claimed Obama took classified documents to Chicago, which was debunked by the National Archives and Records Administration.

On Saturday, after bragging about setting fundraising records, Trump threw out a new defense.
"The 'White House' just announced that it had no knowledge of the early morning raid on Mar-a-Lago, or the break in of Melania’s closets, my safe’s, or the secured and locked storage area where unclassified documents were safely held, and which the FBI knew of, was shown, and made recommendations that another lock be added (which they cracked, but not with the safecracker that they brought with them!)," Trump posted to Truth Social, even though the White House said on Monday they learned of the search warrant from Twitter.
"Does anybody really believe that the White House didn’t know about this? Witch hunt!" Trump claimed, as he did during both of his impeachment trials.

Well maybe if the AG who approved this raid took questions we wouldn't have to guess?

This is how Putin deals with his enemies.

When you have no defense you need to try bullshit knowing you have dumbass followers who will lap it up. Those MAGAites love nothing better than lies, conspiracies, and what aboutisms.

Again, Garland could have simply answered questions at his presser like every AG before him.

Trump didn't send the FBI to search his home. Garland did.

Questions during an active investigation are really a bad idea for both DOJ and defendant - just not done.

No. That's not true.

He could take questions about the raid. Who was involved.

If anything touched on the 'active' investigation he could decline to answer.

You do understand how pressers work, right?

LdN
He said all that needed to be said. Classified docs were removed from MAL with a lawful search warrant. There were 3 basic laws that were involved in getting the warrant. The DOJ acts with confidence and fairness without being influenced by anything outside the legal framework.
MAGAnuts think if you don't raise your voice, you lack confidence - wrong.

Here's what he didn't say, 'Now I open the floor to questions'.

That ALSO needed to be said.

You know, like every AG running a major investigation before him.

Defending the indefensible is a losing battle for you here. So go ahead and keep trolling in other threads.

The AG and DOJ will do their talking at trial where it counts.

The DOJ bent over backward to not charge HRC.

So the entire episode does not meet any honest standard of equal treatment under the law.

Nothing you can say changes that.

No comment on active investigations. Not fair to accuser or accused.

Raid on a former president’s residence. Raid on a probable presidential candidate’s house.

No comment is a wise policy usually, but is just a policy. No raid has ever occurred on a presidential residence—in this country. That is just history.

The (non sociopathic tribal) American public doesn’t care about the FBI policy. Ditto as to whether Trump ends up in jail. The public cares a lot about the fairness of the legal system. The public wants and deserves some answers about what went down. The DOJ needs to lay its cards on the table for the public good. If those cards are good, Trump will never be president because his support will nosedive. However, if the cards aren’t good, DOJ loses and Trump becomes president.

Those are the stakes. Since DOJ can’t afford to lose, they will delay and leak and game the system. Unfortunate, since all I and most people want is the truth.

Those are good points.

Since the FBI conducted the raid and refused to allow Trump's lawyers to observe, they've already more or less lost.

Anything they come up with, the American people are going to believe was planted.

Because the standard “equal treatment under the law” means absolutely nothing to most lawyers, and nothing to any gubmint lawyer.
