WaPo Has an Update About the Mar-a-Lago Raid That Doesn’t Fit the Narrative

The Washington Post is admitting that former President Trump’s motive for allegedly keeping classified material at his Mar-a-Lago residence was largely him wanting to keep mementos, contrary to months of speculation about what he would do with highly classified intelligence documents.

In a report published days after the midterm elections, WaPo cites “people familiar with the matter” who say federal agents and prosecutors now believe Trump’s motive “was largely his ego and a desire to hold on to the materials as trophies or mementos.”

That review has not found any apparent business advantage to the types of classified information in Trump’s possession, these people said.

FBI interviews with witnesses so far, they said, also do not point to any nefarious effort by Trump to leverage, sell or use the government secrets. Instead, the former president seemed motivated by a more basic desire not to give up what he believed was his property, these people said. […]

The people familiar with the matter cautioned that the investigation is ongoing, that no final determinations have been made, and that it is possible additional information could emerge that changes investigators’ understanding of Trump’s motivations. But they said the evidence collected over a period of months indicates the primary explanation for potentially criminal conduct was Trump’s ego and intransigence. (WaPo)

That determination did not surprise those on the right.

    Anyone with half a brain knew there was no “there” there. It was a concerted effort by the corrupt Department Of Political Injustice (DOJ), the Former Bureau of Investigation, the vile Radical Democrat swamp dwellers and their lapdog mainstream media propagandists to continue their pogrom to prevent Donald Trump from ever gaining the White House again. Stalin would have been proud of their efforts.

    Bush started it and oscama refined it so no more having to jump thru hoops to take paperwork home or into the resident at the White House so they changed the way the paper work could leave the Oval office. They made it the law that the papers in their possession was declassified so it could go with them and didn’t change any thing b4 they left office. SOOOOOOO THEY GET TO KEEP ANY AND ALL DOCUMENTS THEY WANT but Pres. Trump can’t use the same process that the other 2 set up and he’s a thief and should be charged for doing the same as them? Only when the government charges bush and oscama FIRST. oscama took over 3 MIL pages home but NOT ONE DAMN WORD HAS BEEN SAID AND NO CHARGES HAVE BEEN FILED AND THE POWERS THAT BE DAMN SURE AIN’T RAIDED OSCAMAS HOME TO REMOVE ALL THAT PAPER WORK. Don’t get me started on Bush, no one no’s how much special paperwork he took home. Pres. Trump has not done any thing DIFFERENT than bush an oscama but the double standard reigns supreme….. What a BUNCH of HYPOCRITES…..
