A wrap-up of MAGA responses to the FBI raid
Zerohedge is a good place to go if you want to see everything the MAGA crowd might say without having to scour the internet for them.
B. Wouldn't the FBI had known there was "classified" information at that time -- either before they arrived at the home or during their search? The most sensitive national security documents are supposed to be tracked by the relevant agency or department.

This is stupid. Trump had already been asked for the documents. If the FBI found documents then Trump was the one who was in the wrong. Period.
it says that President has right to declassify whatever he wants and that, under separation of powers, Congess cannot limit his authority.
So the claim that Trump lacked authority to declassify documents on "sources and methods" (because of statute) looks totally bogus. pic.twitter.com/PiMwMkuFZ3

This is also stupid. No president, not even Trump, can declassify a document by verbal command and the waving of a magic wand.

So the point is that the FBI was pro-Unabomber?
So the same guy who “blew the whistle” on Trump for “stealing boxes” leading to the Mar-a-Lago raid (David Ferriero) was sued in 2015 for failing to preserve Hillary Clinton’s emails.https://t.co/vUZZRyGfRs

The guy retired in April.
Beschloss is one of the half dozen historians Biden has been meeting with on a regular basis. Here he is casually floating the idea that Trump be executed for treason https://t.co/wYovpB22Vk

I like it when the right-wing paints themselves as victims. Unlike the left-wing, which sticks strictly to the three identities (race, gender, sexual orientation), the right-wing will go totally off-road.
By Monday, the New York Times will be running a story about how Trump had the Ark of the Covenant

The agency that ran the Russia collusion hoax, the Whitmer kidnap hoax, went to war against the parents of school-age children, and did nothing during the violent summer of 2020, the attacks on Supreme Court Justices, churches, and pregnancy centers, has thoughts. https://t.co/rQsIztYYBA

Garland didn't invent that definition.
This fishing expedition is so insane that under the federal legal definition of "Presidential Records," a McDonald's menu that Trump scrawled his lunch order on during a meeting in the Oval would be included (44 U.S.C. 2201).

However, the right-wing does have one point that I can't deny - there's been way too much leaking happening.
