    Now we know where and how it began. This is a report on the origins of the "Presidential Records Act" violations reported by the National Archives and the person who initiated them.

    One thing. It was about the swamp being terrified that Trump would run again and most certainly win. This is the only way to prevent that from happening.

    It's arithmetic. It's about an ex- president leaving with 27 boxes, giving back 15 and calling that cooperation.

    Would you like to have someone in charge of the federal budget who was asked to return 100% of the boxes and only returned 55 5/9%?

    This raid is looking to be the biggest backfire of all so far. And that's saying a lot.

    Funny how the mole supposedly knew exactly where the documents were kept, yet the FBI raided every bit of living space even going though all of Melania's possessions. It's obvious they were out to get anything they could lay their hands on, rather than being there to retrieve specific boxes kept in a specific spot.

    Not really, no. At worst, his administration earmarked 30 million documents for the library before he left office and the records were turned over to the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). These documents are already available to be requested under the Freedom of Information Act by NARA in accordance with the Presidential Records Act.

    Also, while you say "his" (referring to Obama's) library, the Presidential Libraries are owned by the Federal Government and operated by the Office of Presidential Libraries, which is a division of NARA. Obama did not "take" any records for "his" library but gave them to NARA for his library.

    Makes you wonder how many moles the FBI has in your life. Not that my life is that exciting. That mole would be pretty bored.

    Was he not allowed to have any personal possessions in his office? There were also issues with some of the things that Obama retained but no one tried to make a federal case out of it.

    I'm guessing if this is true, Obama actually complied with any demand for the return of the items.

    I've been reading how the FBI mole lead agents directly to where the documents were stored in a basement. So once again, why did they go through the entire residence? Why did they break into Trump's safe when what they were there for wasn't in his safe? Why did they go through his wife's belongings etc?

    I heard a prosecuting attorney talk about this stuff on a YouTube cable news channel..... not FOX or any of the big ones. She said when going after organized crime she often found incriminating stuff in the wardrobe of the wife. Implying to me that it was either an intentional hiding place, or a place you would forget to clean up if you were a person who was trying to protect yourself from a government search.


    She also said she often found incriminating stuff in the freezer...

    Yeah, but they were supposedly there retrieve a specific number of boxes, containing specific material, located in a specific place they were taken to by their informant. Obviously that was just an excuse to raid the place and dig up anything they could get their hands on.

    Priorities are always a mystery I guess. There was not much publicity or concerns when former ( & late RIP) “security” advisor Sandy Berger failed to inform President Clinton of Chinese espionage of US nuclear warheads. Berger also failed to return documents from the national security archive.

    It doesn't beg the question, but it might prompt the question. But it might also be that they didn't have a mole, but rather, an employee came forward after being disgusted at Trump's behavior.
