Drama at Mar-A-Lago

The search motivated Trump to solicit his supporters for more donations.

(SAN FRANCISCO, CA.) - Donald J. Trump is a former president who believed and still believes that he is above the law.

On August 8, 2022, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) served a court-authorized search warrant on Former President Trump in Palm Beach, Florida.

The focus of the FBI search of Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago seemed to be directed at records Trump admitted failing to return to the Archives after he left office, which may result in charges including obstruction of justice, violating the Espionage Act and the removal or destruction of records.

In another display of shameless hypocrisy, Trump called the search “prosecutorial misconduct” and the “weaponization of the Justice System.”

This, from a former president who while in office created a DOJ headed first by Jeff Sessions, then by political hack, Matthew Whitaker, and then under William Barr, to do his personal bidding for his friends, political allies and wealthy donors.

Trump used the search to solicit political donations from his supporters who, I'm sure, will gladly open their wallets.

Is this about some orange man, or our civil liberties? It seems Tim was a U.S. Marine, I was just a swab but I still joined to support our constitution..if they can do this to the "orange man" today, who will it be tomorrow?..you? me? the readers? This is a slippery slope.

 EDITOR: Yes, Tim was a Marine. He was also a journalist, and saw with his own eyes how many Americans have endured questionable if not wrongful indiscretions due to over-reaching authorities. Tim also witnessed corrupt individuals getting away with seemingly endless crimes. Of course, any one  that commits crimes should know that their number may come up eventually, unless they're in complete denial. The search of Trump's home was not dis-similar to how other alleged criminals are treated during an investigation. Not exactly a slippery slope.

But we should be more careful..trump is not on my radar, but our rights are. Just because we dont like someone, we need to be careful that our basic civil rights are not taken awway because we dont like sonone or thing "they: deserve...its a slippery slope..This is not about one person, but our basic civil liberties, that some of us risked and fought for..many died. I do NOT support trump in this situation, Im just saying we ll better hold on to oour cicil rights ans liberties..whether gay, or a political party, our rights and liberties are most important. I would suggest not disliking a party or person to put our civil liberites at risk. We could take 'donalds" name out of this article and replave it ith biden or pelosi..We need to stand by our civil liberties...I wondr how pelosi's trip went to China, or her and her husband are doing in the srok marker...crickets. As a leaning republican part person, I do not iike Trump very much. I remember liking Ron Paul alot tho. search our hearts not our political party maybe. at the same time, I have enjoyed Ralphs articles and glad he is a contributor here on salem news...On another note..Hi TIM!! hey Tim, how about a tip not related to politics? you and your great readers should internt search engine the following..."drought monitor" it show the U.S. and Mexico, and its not looking good..So Mr Tim, my friend who I had a beer with at brownstown, do some research on the drought and write the great article like you do..go at it Tim, I look forward to your opinion...most of the U.S> is dark red..and I donnt mean, "red" as in Rppublican, but "red" as in severe drought...end times?

 EDITOR: I am so sorry to give you this sad news, but Tim is no longer with us. He died Oct 4, 2020, after being in a motorcycle accident here in Salem. We miss him very much.
