We all know Trump as a man of his word — a modest man — he’ll always listen to reason:
Former President Donald Trump attempted to convey a cryptic message to Attorney General Merrick Garland following the FBI raid of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida, The New York Times reported over the weekend.
The report said Trump wanted Garland to know he had been speaking with people around the country who were enraged by the FBI search.
A person familiar with the exchange told the paper that the message Trump wanted to be conveyed to Garland was: “The country is on fire. What can I do to reduce the heat?”
The Times said a person close to the former president had reached out to a Justice Department official to give Garland the message. It wasn’t clear whether the message reached Garland.
I just hope he also emphasized that we are all reasonable men here, and that we don’t have to give each other assurances, as if we were lawyers.
. . . lol wtf is this as Louis Brandeis almost assuredly never said:
Former President Donald Trump said Monday that FBI investigators took his passports when they raided his Florida home last week in search of classified documents that he may have held onto illegally after leaving office.
“In the raid by the FBI of Mar-a-Lago, they stole my three Passports (one expired), along with everything else,” Trump wrote on his social media platform, Truth Social. “This is an assault on a political opponent at a level never seen before in our Country. Third World!”
