What happens when Trump is charged with espionage?

What will be the reaction in the MAGA movement?

Will they be in a minority in the country?

Most Americans might be shocked to learn about the degree of betrayal? That, not only did he steal the documents and desperately attempted to keep them from the FBI and the government, but he also, gave them to our adversaries, even though they were marked Top Secret.

Most Americans will be very surprised if Trump is charged with espionage. But the DOJ is required to follow the law. It will be up to a jury to decide guilt or innocence.

This is the most grave decision anyone in our Justice Department has ever had to make.

But, our Constitution must be defended and preserved.

Pardons for the criminals that attacked our Capitol on January 6th?

Should Democrats make this an issue in the next election?

Even talk about "pardons" lead many people to believe these people were innocent and are nothing more than "political prisoners" of the deep state.

Is it wise to ignore all the talk about "pardons" for the insurrectionists?

Has the disturbance in the "Force" now stabilized?

I think it has.

The recent revelations about the stolen documents raises some new questions

The latest reports are that a couple of Trump workers moved boxes into the storage room at Mar-a-Lago. Into the storage room, not out of the storage room. Reportedly, they were moved one day before the DOJ came to retrieve them via subpoena.

Where were they stored before they were moved? Were they stored in Trump's office, the place they found documents when they went in with a search warrant?

And what happened to the documents that were in the empty folders?

Were they moved to the Westminster Golf Club, where the Saudis sponsored the LIV golf tournament just a few weeks later?

Did Trump show or give the documents to the Saudis at that time?

There should be no ambiguity about the Big Lie, January 6th, or the Republican Party.

Republicans have betrayed this country. They continue to believe that somehow they will be able to control the fascist if he wins the next election. It is easier to believe that than to speak the truth.

January 6th was an attack upon our Capitol, an attempted coup to keep Donald Trump in power, and a planned conspiracy to stop the count of the electoral votes. It was a criminal act. It was not a patriotic act in any way. Nobody should be permitted to try and whitewash it or to minimize it. It was a despicable attack upon our democracy and it is a lie to try and define it as anything else.

Perhaps Democrats need to be more direct and confrontational about it?

There should be no ambiguity about what happened and who was involved and who inspired it and which Party continues to defend it.

It should be clear to the American people that it was not a typical tourist day and it was not the same as any other march or demonstration ever in this country's history.

The Republican Party and all those that have tried to cover up this attack upon our Capitol should not be allowed to lie about it anymore.

There is no defense for what they did.

If justice is permitted to die, then democracy dies.

The Preamble to the Constitution:

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

Trump thinks half the country are "Trump haters"...

...and, therefore, he could never get a fair shake from anyone that was not on his side.

I do not think half the country "hated" him before he was in the White House? Then they saw him for what he was - a criminal, a liar, a misogynist, a thief, and someone that tried, and still is trying, to destroy our country. A hypocrite of the highest order.

But, even then, it is not that the people hate him personally, so much as they hate his deeds. As the good book says, love the sinner, hate the sin. I think that is where most of the country stands.

He will be judged for his deeds, or misdeeds, not whether he is hated by anyone.

The FBI has always been a conservative, right-leaning organization.

While they may be the premier law-enforcement agency in the country, they have a history of attacking liberals and progressive causes. They have never been friendly to the left.

So, why are MAGA Republicans calling for the defunding of the FBI? Why would they want to clean house and make it over in their image?

Can we even imagine an FBI that surrendered its last bit of integrity and its faith in the justice system? Instead, it would swear allegiance to a person or a political Party.
