Damning Evidence Blows Up Trump’s Espionage Crimes

Documents with classification markings discovered in Trump’s private quarters months after prosecutors had subpoenaed them and the FBI conducted its own exhaustive search of the property. Investigators had “strong evidence” that the former president “intended” to hide classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago resort, according to newly released court documents.

He told his staff to avoid security cameras when moving boxes.

And his espionage continues.

As new polls come out please remember there's nothing important in them that we don't already know: the race is going to be close, are going to cheat, they're going to get illegal help from foreign countries and we outnumber them greatly, which is why they have to cheat.

So what are you going to do about it?

Johnson was the chief whip for Donald Trump.
Mike Johnson led the efforts to overturn our election. He is anti-choice. He blocks our border security. He lies for criminal Donald Trump. He supports conversion therapy. Mike Johnson is a deranged white christian nationalist aka American nazi.

Johnson’s insane dominionist Christian nationalism, aka fascism dictates that the bible should drive decisions in government and white supremacists will rule over you and our treasury.

For myself and most of the people I know personally who are not lost to the MAGA-side, we are:

  • Disgusted and outraged by Israel's war on Palestinian civilians.
  • Disgusted and outraged at our complicity in these war crimes.
  • Absofuckinglutely going to vote for every single Democrat on our ballots including Joe Biden.

If this confuses you, please feel free to ask me ethics questions. It is a subject I have studied and taught and I'm happy to engage in good faith dialogue.

The NYT has for some reason (maybe since the new head editor in 2022? IDK, that's only a guess) become explicitly anti-Biden. I suspect that this article is their concern-trolling way of criticizing Biden, and doesn't at all represent actual constructive advice from someone who wants him to win.
