The Next Chapter of the FBI's Trump Raid Saga Just Dropped
Matt Vespa / Townhall Tpheet
Of course this development would drop late at night. The Biden Department of Justice has declared that Donald Trump’s ‘special master’ request to review the documents the FBI seized in their August 8 raid of Mar-a-Lago should be denied on national security grounds. You heard that right; the Justice Department thinks that reviewing the letters to Trump from Kim Jong-un would endanger us irreparably. The cocktail napkins have nuclear codes on them. Photographs of state dinners would lead to nuclear war, and the dinner menus could reveal who killed John F. Kennedy. At least this development has a tinge of entertainment value. The most recent updates have been grounded in email exchanges between lawyers that didn’t show any criminal or prevaricating intent on behalf of Trump’s lawyers. There was no smoking gun. And now, if anyone but us, the DOJ, review the documents we took in an unlawful search, it’s a national security risk. Last weekend, a judge announced her preliminary intent to appoint a special master to review the records...Read more and see tweet here.
Last Leader of Soviet 'Evil Empire' Mikhail Gorbachev Dies at 91
Spencer Brown / Townhall Tipsheet
Mikhail Gorbachev, the eighth and last leader of the Soviet Union from 1985 until 1991, died on Tuesday at the age of 91. According to a hospital in Moscow, Gorbachev had been suffering from a "serious and long illness" before his passing. According to AP, his death was confirmed by other Russian outlets including Tass, RIA Novosti and Interfax.

Gorbachev's time leading the Soviet Union was marked by his decision to withdraw from Afghanistan, pursue summits with the free world via President Ronald Reagan, and the ultimate dissolution of the USSR. His policies of perestroika and glasnost were welcomed by the outside world with hope that some liberalization would come along with his leadership. Those policies, along with more openness, shook the "Evil Empire" enough to speed up and bring about its demise as freedom triumphed over Gorbachev's Soviet communism.

Of the Cold War meetings between Gorbachev and Reagan, one of the most consequential was their October 1986 summit in...Read more and see tweets here.

Democrats 'Sold Virginia Out': Youngkin Vows to Fight California's EV Rule
Leah Barkoukis / Townhall Tipsheet
Virginia Republicans are vowing to fight vehicle emissions rules that would turn the commonwealth into California.

Due to legislation passed when Virginia was dominated by Democrats, the commonwealth is on its way to following California’s footsteps in banning the sale of new gas vehicles by 2035.

California has a special Clean Air Act waiver from the Environmental Protection Agency allowing it to set vehicle emissions standards that are stricter than the federal government’s. The Virginia legislation, passed in 2021, adopts these standards.

Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin said he’s “already at work to prevent this ridiculous edict from being forced on Virginians” because “California’s out of touch laws have no place in our Commonwealth.”

House Speaker Todd Gilbert said Republicans are going to advance legislation in 2023 to “put Virginians back in charge” but Democrats control the state Senate by one vote. Read more and see tweet here.

Here’s the White House’s Excuse for Why Biden’s Been Ignoring Israel’s Calls 
Spencer Brown – Townhall Tipsheet
President Biden, the man who’s spent as much time as feasibly possible and then some away from the White House and Washington — instead favoring his homes in Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware and a jaunt on Kiawah Island in South Carolina — has apparently been neglecting some of his Oval Office duties to the consternation of our nation’s allies. 

This unsurprising development comes from a disclosure in reporting from The Jerusalem Post last week about Israel’s fears caused by the looming uncertainty amid negotiations for a revived Iran nuclear deal. One that would allow Iran more resources and connections with the free world despite its status as one of the world’s leading state sponsors of terrorism.

“Prime Minister Yair Lapid has requested a meeting with US President Joe Biden during his visit to the US for the UN General Assembly next month,” The Post reported, “amid deep concern in Jerusalem over an impending nuclear deal between Washington and Tehran.” Read more here.

BREAKING: Mar-a-Lago Affidavit Released. Read It All Here. 
Spencer Brown – Townhall Tipsheet

After days of waiting and a flurry of motions from the Department of Justice attempting to keep the affidavit used in the FBI’s raid of Mar-a-Lago sealed indefinitely, a redacted affidavit was finally released on Friday afternoon just before the 12:00 p.m. ET deadline set by federal Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart. There was such a rush to view the affidavit, however, that the government’s website where federal court records are posted completely crashed for nearly 30 minutes. 

Once the site recovered, the affidavit was revealed to be a 38-page document that is heavily redacted — despite Judge Reinhart saying that the FBI’s redactions are “narrowly tailored” — leaving even more questions still unanswered. In all, 20+ pages are entirely or significantly redacted.

What remains un-redacted is a narrative of what most already knew…Read more here.

FBI Request to Facebook Pretty Much Shows They Interfered in the 2020 Election 
Matt Vespa / Townhall Tipsheet
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has accrued a good faith and credit balance with the American people for generations. They’re our preeminent domestic law enforcement and intelligence agency. Decades of marked professionalism regarding investigating and apprehending some of the worst criminals and a near dogmatic adherence to being an apolitical agency. That all ended in 2016. The balance in their credibility account with the public went into the negative, and there’s no coming back given the top brass who occupy the top positions at the J. Edgar Hoover Building. 
As we await the release of parts of the affidavit that provided probable cause for the FBI to raid Mar-a-Lago on August 8, the story is quickly evaporating regarding its significance. Right now, the only thing historical about it is that federal agents ransacked the home of a former president, part of a pattern of prolonged harassment and interference by the FBI based on political bias and animus.

Judge orders unsealing of redacted affidavit in Trump search
Eric Tucker / AP / AP News
A judge ordered the Justice Department on Thursday to make public a redacted version of the affidavit it relied on when federal agents searched the Florida estate of former President Donald Trump to look for classified documents.

The directive from U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart came hours after federal law enforcement officials submitted under seal the portions of the affidavit that they want to keep secret as their investigation moves forward. The judge set a deadline of noon Friday for a redacted, or blacked-out, version of the document.

The order means the public could soon get at least some additional details about what led FBI officials to search Mar-a-Lago on Aug. 8 as part of an investigation into classified documents being retained at the Palm Beach property. Documents already made public as part of the investigation show that the FBI retrieved from the property 11 sets of classified documents, including information marked at the top secret level.

One year on, Afghans at risk await evacuation, relocation
Renata Brito / AP / AP News 

More than a year after the Taliban takeover that saw thousands of Afghans rushing to Kabul’s international airport amid the chaotic U.S. withdrawal, Afghans at risk who failed to get on evacuation flights say they are still struggling to find safe and legal ways out of the country.

Among those left behind is a 49-year-old interpreter who worked for a NATO contractor in 2010 accompanying convoys in Kandahar. Only six days after the Taliban reached the capital last August, they came looking for him.

“They come to my house and they threatened my son and my wife (when) I was not at home. They (then) destroy my office,” he told AP via WhatsApp referring to the place where he taught English. He asked that his name not be revealed for security reasons.

This month, he was interrogated by the Taliban again for more than two hours.

Whistleblower: FBI Officials Ordered Agents to Steer Clear of Hunter Biden Laptop
Matt Vespa / Townhall Tipsheet

The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s attempts to look like the impartial, professional, and apolitical law enforcement agency they once were in their glory days only makes them appear more like the Democratic Party’s Gestapo. We don’t need to revisit the endless stream of lies manufactured over the Russian collusion hoax, the spying operation on the Trump campaign, and the fabrication and suppression of evidence to secure FISA spy warrants against former Trump campaign officials. The FBI’s top brass knew this collusion was a Clinton-funded opposition research project. Even the CIA now admits that the collusion claims were “user created” and that the whole plot that has been ingrained in the minds of liberal America was not “technically plausible.” And yet, they continued to stoke the flames of this fake news fire for years, part of their deep state against the Trump administration.

Trump sues the federal government over the Mar-a-Lago raid, says his Fourth Amendment rights have been violated and asks for a special master to oversee the probe

Wills Robinson For and Geoff Earle, Deputy U.S. Political Editor For / BBC News

Donald Trump has sued the federal government and asked for a special master to determine what materials seized from Mar-a-Lago can be used in the investigation into him.

The former president filed the lawsuit in the US District Court in the Southern District of Florida on Monday afternoon saying his Fourth Amendment rights had been violated by the seizure of certain documents, including two of his passports.

It comes a magistrate in Florida prepares to decide whether to unseal the search affidavit that led to the raid two weeks ago. 

Politics cannot be allowed to impact the administration of justice. President Donald Trump is the clear frontrunner in the 2024 Republican Presidential Primary and in the 2024 General Election, should he decide to run’, the lawsuit reads. 

It adds that the raid on Mar-a-Lago was ‘shockingly aggressive’ and the move showed ‘no understanding of the distress that it would cause most Americans.’ Read more and see video and court filing here.

Here's the Woman Who Launched the FBI Ransacking of Mar-a-Lago
Matt Vespa / Townhall Tipsheet
Donald Trump is the victim of a political hit job by the Biden Department of Justice. He didn’t commit any actual law violations as stipulated in the Mar-a-Lago search warrant. Federal officials fought to keep the affidavit providing probable cause for the FBI’s August 8 raid under seal. Still, a judge, the same one who signed off on the search, Bruce Reinhart, disagreed and ordered parts of the document to be released after a redaction process. That means a sea of blacked-out pages, so what’s the point? The best part regarding the reasoning behind keeping the core of the affidavit under wraps is to protect Donald Trump. Nothing is creepier than when the government says, “this is for your protection.”

With every development regarding this federal ransacking, two things remain unchanged. It looks increasingly clear that the Trump legal team was cooperating with federal officials regarding the documents in question, so the obstruction of justice allegation gets weaker by the day.

Rand Paul Explains What Fauci's Retirement Means for Pandemic Accountability 
Katie Pavlicch / Townhall Tipsheet
Republican Senator Rand Paul is vowing to continue his investigation into dangerous gain-of-function research and Dr. Anthony Fauci after the longtime bureaucrat officially announced his retirement Monday morning. 
Earlier this year, Dr. Paul cornered Fauci for using taxpayer resources and his position to retaliate against scientists who disagreed with him. 

Dr. Anthony Fauci testified in front of the Senate Health Committee Tuesday morning and was corned by Senator Rand Paul, who is also a doctor, for engaging in retaliation tactics against Ivy League scientists who disagreed with him about the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic. 

"Your email exchange with Dr. Collins, in which you conspired, and I quote here directly, to do ‘a quick and devastating published takedown’ in order to discredit three epidemiologists from Harvard, Oxford and Stanford," Paul said, presenting Fauci with his own emails. "...

Judge Rejects DOJ’s Request to Seal Entire Mar-a-Lago Search Affidavit 
Leah Barkoukis – Townhall Tipsheet
A federal judge formally rejected the Department of Justice’s request to keep the affidavit that led to the FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago sealed due to “the intense public and historical interest in an unprecedented search of a former President’s residence.”

The Biden administration argued “the present record justifies keeping the entire Affidavit under seal,” but Judge Bruce Reinhart, who cleared the initial search warrant, said in a 13-page ruling issued Monday that the government had not given a strong enough argument for that request.

“I was — and am — satisfied that the facts sworn by the affiant are reliable,” Reinhart said in the order

Reinhart ruled last week that he would consider unsealing portions of the affidavit after conferring with the Justice Department and determining whether proposed redactions would be sufficient to protect the ongoing criminal investigation connected to the search. But in his order, Reinhart emphasized that he may ultimately agree…Read more here.
