    1. According to an ex-prosecutor, claiming evidence was planted is an old ploy used by mobsters. It is a red flag that screams guilt.

      Of course now the right wing squawk box is calling for violence. They know nothing else.

      1. Back when the FBI was a credible, professional organization that might have been true, but now that the FBI leadership has made it partisan gestapo, not so much,

        Until these questions can be answered, concerns of planted evidence are quite valid.

        Why did the agents initially refuse to let Trump’s attorney read the warrant before entering?

        Why was she not provided a copy?

        Why were the attorneys, residents and staff refused entry to witness the search? (what were they doing in Melania’s wardrobe?)

        Why did they initially try to turn off the internal security cameras?

        You cast suspicion on Trump because he declines to testify in NY?

        Tell me what the FBI is hiding in FL? Honest cops don’t need to search without witnesses.

        1. You really need to stop regurgitating nonsense. It makes you seem a real fool. There is no evidence that the search was carried out any differently than the SOP in the playbook.

          And the woman whom you say could not look at the warrant arrived more than an hour after the search had started. Try to get your facts straight. It is not all that hard.

          As for your baseless slanders and silly speculations – did I mention “fool.”

          The real question you seem not interested in is WHY did Trump so egregiously break the law and so egregiously failed to correct it when given many chances to do so? This search came after many far more polite efforts still left documents unaccounted for.

          1. Many if the items the Archive wants are disputed.

            For example, the handwritten letter left by Obama to Trump about the challenges of the Presidency is one of the items taken. Trump had offered a copy but claimed the original is his personal property. I would agree.

            Too bad the Presidential Records Act does not agree. It is up to the Archivist to decide and this particular letter has great historic significance and belongs in the archives. Too bad Trump won’t be able to sell it to one of his Saudi buddies.

          1. Trump himself has the warrant, but he won’t release it.

            Wray at least followed the “rule” of avoiding politically hot investigations inside 90 days before national elections.

            Republicans stated clearly that Benghazi, and the resulting email imbroglio, were intended to damage her before the 2016 election. Then the FBI came out about a week before the election with another stab at the scandal.

            Now, after 18 months of pleading, negotiating and demanding, a search for missing papers is Third World tactics.

            Trump is banking on the threat of violence and even civil war by his supporters to treat him better than Nixon, the Clintons.

            That is truly Third World.

            As Ann Landers used to say: “time to wake up and smell the coffee”.

          2. You are something.

            No matter what or who, they are against you.

            Victor Orban, a darling of the right, is nothing but “pro-authoritarian bureaucracy”. And he was the star speaker at the CPAC-Trump love fest.

            Again, sniff the coffee…

          3. “OK. Bloomberg is pro authoritarian bureaucracy.”

            Really dopey! Holding criminal behavior to account is about the rule of law. It has nothing to do with bureaucracy. Obviously.

          4. “I haven’t seen one yet. And no, Trump’s lawyer was not given a copy. The warrant is sealed, no reason given.”

            Dopier and dopier.

            Trump has the search warrant. If it is sealed (a big if for any “fact” you provide) that is by court order and is to protect Trump. It does not mean he cannot have the document he was served with. Duh!

        3. “Back when the FBI was a credible, professional organization that might have been true, but now that the FBI leadership has made it partisan gestapo, not so much,”

          Was that prior to 2017 when Trump turned it into the animal you claim it to be? And when Comey divulged an ongoing investigation into Hillary Clinton while not even breathing a whisper of the one against Trump’s campaign?

          The FBI that you used to adore is the same freaking organization it always has been. When it worked FOR you, it is fine; when it is against you it is now a politicized gestapo cut loose by Biden.

          The logic is so full of fertilizer that the fumes have clouded your judgement.

          Wray – appointed BY Trump. Garland – One of the most deliberate and thoughtful AG’s we have seen in many a year.

          These gentleman are not going to tread heavily over anyone’s rights. Not talking about an investigation protects many people, most importantly, the subject of the investigation.

          “Why was she not provided a copy?”

          Unproven claim. She has it and can release it any time she or her client wants.

          “Why were the attorneys, residents and staff refused entry to witness the search?”

          It is called STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE. If you don’t like the FB

          “Why did they initially try to turn off the internal security cameras?”

          Does it matter? No, because those cameras would be akin to anyone else, outside of assigned LE, to view the search. WHICH SOP does NOT allow. If you want to change the FBI’s procedures, then request to be made director and change it.

          “You cast suspicion on Trump because he declines to testify in NY?”

          He did that himself with his own statements concerning those who plead the 5th. But I did hear a talking head attorney say yesterday that it was probably on the advice of counsel and the right move. It still casts doubt, but it was the advice and may not make any difference in the civil proceedings. Criminally, could be different. But the current HYAG investigation IS civil in nature related to his business dealings in NY

          1. She can get it from her client, who does have it.

            Call Trump and demand he release the warrant as he is the only one who can do so.

  1. ZeroHeadge provides the context needed to contemplate Mr. Murphy’s video: “Former President Trump on Wednesday announced that he would not be answering questions in his court-ordered deposition in New York Attorney General Letitia James’ three-year probe of his organization.”

    One should also read Trump’s statement on his refusal:

    1. Laughable! Really and truly. You have to be really, really eager to be gulled to buy such horseshit.

      Let me quote Dear Leader for some perspective . . . .

      “If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?”

      Damn good question!

          Not this one.

          Trump says innocent people do not invoke the Fifth Amendment. Trump invoked the Fifth Amendment. End of story. There is not another side.

          As expected, he generated some whiny, victimy excuses because he knows how you people eat up his bullshit. His cringeworthy statements do not change the essential facts.

            Yes, this one, too. You should have made it clear that your video was in reference to the NYC case.

          2. “You should have made it clear that your video was in reference to the NYC case.”

            Why? It is readily available news that Trumpy invoked the Fifth rather than answer questions about his business practices in the NY civil case where he was deposed.

            Too bad that he seems to not know that in a civil case his invoking the Fifth can be used as evidence against him. Actually, he probably does know that and has chosen the Fifth because the truth would be even more damning.

          My wife had a better take on the concept that can apply here.

          There are three sides to every story, Side A, Side B, and the TRUTH. (A and B often His and Hers)

      1. Truth hurts doesn’t it? There is no question of what was said and you, through your own admission, take pleasure in it. Maybe you should consider taking the 5th.

    1. Paul. Edit the heading to “This is what the horse’s ass said about taking the 5th.” The semantic brothers can then try another tactic to deflect from the fact their hero has said on numerous occasions that only the guilty, or those who have something to hide, plead the 5th.
