10.7 Cancelling Trump

This web page was written in August 2022.  The Democrats are worried that Trump will win reelection in 2024.  If they can convict him of criminal behavior they can prevent him from being eligible to run for president again.  There is a law  Section 2071 of Title 18 of the United States Code, which makes it a crime if someone who has custody of government documents or records “willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies or destroys” them. According to that law any person who does that  “be disqualified from holding” any federal office. Trump when he left the Whitehouse took boxes of papers with him, so the Democrats may be able to convict him of concealing documents and so prevent him from running for president in the future.  If any of those documents are defense related than that could also be considered a violation of  the Espionage Act. On August 8 the FBI invaded Trump's home in the Mar a Lago club in Palm beach, Florida.  The Democrats say they are just upholding the law and that no one, not even a former president is above the law. 

How do we know who is telling the truth?  One thing we can ask is has the FBI ever lied in the past?  Another question we can ask is does the FBI have a history of breaking into homes of other people who oppose the Democratic party?  Another question that helps answer this question is does the Democratic party, which is the party in power as of 2022, use government agencies such as the FBI to go after their opposition?  Yet another question worth asking is, is the Democratic party out to get Trump.  If the answers to these questions is yes that strongly suggests that Trump is telling the truth and the FBI is lying.

Eric Trump discusses the treatment of his father by the Democrats in the video below.  One of the things Eric says is how he is contantly subpoenaed.  A subpoena is an order to appear in court and Eric is constantly called to appear in court to testify about his father.  When Trump was campaigning to become president the Democrats used the FBI to spy on him.  The Democrats were able to do that because they lied to a judge and convinced him that one of Trump's .  There is a law called FISA, mentioned in the video below.  FISA is the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.  It allows the government to spy on people that are believed to be terrorists.  The Democrats convinced the judge that Carter Page, who worked for Trump's campaign, was probably a terrorist, (he wasn't) and got the FBI to spy on him.

Peter Navarro and Paul Manafort are mentioned in the video below.  They are two people associated with Trump who were arrested by the FBI.

Peter Navarro was the director of trade policy for president Trump.  He was subpoenaed to testify about the Jan 6 protest by people who believed that Joe Biden stole the election.  He refused saying Trump had executive privilege against his advisor being subpoenaed.  He wrote what happened next.

On June 3, 2020, five armed FBI agents swooped down on me at Reagan National Airport as I was about to board a flight to Nashville and an interview with Mike Huckabee. I was denied the opportunity to call an attorney, quickly handcuffed, jammed into the back seat of a government car, sent first to the FBI for a mug shot and fingerprinting, and then to a Washington, DC jail. At the DC jail, I was first spread-eagled and stripped searched and then put in a set of leg irons.  A prison guard then led me to solitary confinement and placed in same cell in which John Hinckley once sat after shooting President Reagan. As you may know, last year I finished serving four years as a top White House advisor to President Trump.  Formally, I was the Assistant to the President for Trade and Manufacturing Policy. During my service, I helped President Trump create hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs and save millions of lives.  I have no criminal record. I have never committed a violent act. I have always a law-abiding citizen just like you. Why did I receive such brutal treatment — a treatment received frankly by murderers, terrorists and assassins like Hinckley? My “crime” was simply to have stood up for Constitutional principles. I stood up for my duty to my country and to my former commander in chief Donald J. Trump.

Paul Manafort was a campaign advisor for president Trump.  He was arrested for being involved with president Trump's collusion with Russia.  Only problem is, the collusion accusation was part of a smear campaign by the Democrats and wasn't true.   FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith doctored a document to get a wiretap on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, an innocent man, so they could get evidence on Trump’s supposed Russia ties. 

 

The FBI invasion of Trump's property occurred on Monday Aug 8 2022.  On Wednesday of that week Trump had to appear in a New York court where he is being investigated for not being honest with the IRS about the value of his property in order to get tax breaks.President Trump refused to answer questions of prosecutors led by attorney general Letitia James saying that “James developed a political platform and made a career out of maliciously attacking me and my business before she was even elected, or reviewed one of the millions of pages of documents we willingly produced,” the ex-president said. “We cannot permit a renegade and out-of-control prosecutor to use this investigation as a means of advancing her political career.”

Is Trump is right that Letitia James was out to get him or is he just being paranoid?  When she was running for office she said

"at the eye of the storm is Donald Trump, ripping families apart, threatening women’s most basic rights.  I’m running for attorney general because I will never be afraid to challenge this illegitimate president when our fundamental rights are at stake.”

Larry Kudlow collected clips of Attorney General Letitia James expressing her hostility to Trump.  Here they are.

 

Letitia James was elected to be the attorney general of New York States.  There must be a lot of people in New York state who are very hostile to Donald Trump for her to get elected.

 The FBI has gone after other people who oppose the Democrats or who expose the Democrats.  Hunter Biden left a laptop of his at a repairshop and never picked it up.  That laptop had a lot of evidence of corrupt wrongdoing by Hunter and his father Joe.  Miranda Devine a reporter who has been following the Hunter Biden story suggested that Hunter may be forgetful as a result of taking drugs and so forgot where his laptop was.  The repairman turned over the laptop to the FBI but was warned not to talk about it.  Democrats accused the repairman of spreading Russian disinformation.  Democrats harrassed the repairman which forced him to close down his repairshop.  He has written a book about his experience called American Injustice: My Battle to Expose the Truth.”

 James Okeefe runs an organization called project Veritas that has exposed and embarrassed a lot of Democrats.  He tells about what it was like when he was raided by the FBI in a video you can see by clicking here.  The FBI has raided homes of people who protested what they believed to be a stolen election by president Biden.  You can read  different raids here and here.  Eric Trump mentioned raids of other people in the video above who the Biden administration doesn't like.
