"Marcy wrote an initial thread of her read of the filing in the Trump document theft. From that.

"It details how the investigation evolved, from 18 USC 2071 for the torn documents and 18 USC 793 for the stolen classified documents to add 18 USC 1519 after it was clear Trump and his team were willfully withholding stuff.

It describes the three sets of inventories of documents seized, roughly as follows (the filing didn’t break down the documents seized on August 8 by classification type):

I’m interested in where the FBI found certain things on August 8. As the filing notes, 13 boxes (not 11, as suggested by the warrant receipt) contained classified information, with over 100 marked classified documents identified.

The investigative team has reviewed all the materials in the containers that the privilege review team did not segregate as potentially attorney-client privileged. Of the Seized Evidence, thirteen boxes or containers contained documents with classification markings, and in all, over one hundred unique documents with classification markings—that is, more than twice the amount produced on June 3, 2022, in response to the grand jury subpoena—were seized. Certain of the documents had colored cover sheets indicating their classification status. See, e.g., Attachment F (redacted FBI photograph of certain documents and classified cover sheets recovered from a container in the “45 office”). The classification levels ranged from CONFIDENTIAL to TOP SECRET information, and certain documents included additional sensitive compartments that signify very limited distribution. In some instances, even the FBI counterintelligence personnel and DOJ attorneys conducting the review required additional clearances before they were permitted to review certain documents.

Documents with classified markings were found in two places: the storage room and Trump’s office.

Notwithstanding counsel’s representation on June 3, 2022, that materials from the White House were only located in the Storage Room, classified documents were found in both the Storage Room and in the former President’s office.

76 documents were in the storage room, leaving at least 25 in his office. Three of those were found in desk drawers, at least some of them with his passports.

Three classified documents that were not located in boxes, but rather were located in the desks in the “45 Office,” were also seized.

[snip]

Consistent with Attachment B to the search warrant, the government seized the contents of a desk drawer that contained classified documents and governmental records commingled with other documents. The other documents included two official passports, one of which was expired, and one personal passport, which was expired. The location of the passports is relevant evidence in an investigation of unauthorized retention and mishandling of national defense information; nonetheless, the government decided to return those passports in its discretion.

That leaves at least 22 documents.

The photo included as an exhibit of the filing, is described as a “redacted FBI photograph of certain documents and classified cover sheets recovered from a container in the ’45 office’,” which must be the leatherbound box described in the search warrant returns.

That shows that Trump was keeping some of the nation’s most sensitive secrets next to a framed Time Magazine cover.

And they were probably all in a standard hotel safe."

    Judging by the tone of the DOJ's letter and the accompanying photo it seems to me the DOJ is not fooling around with Trump. Trump better be ready to play hardball.

    The ongoing Gutfeld joke is about the glee with which progressive Swampcultists, like po, declared OrangeMan guilty of planning of an insurrection, only now to attempt to crow about the audacity of Trump deigning to hold on to a few tokens of his years as President. (Gutfeld doesn't mention po by name.)

    Pretty funny, eh?

    Hilarious, actually.

    But, y'nes are so earnest.

    Bahahahahahahahahahaha.

    HTS, why are you soft on crime?

    If you spend a long vacation at an Airbnb, a VRBO or a hotel you're not allowed to pack boxes of "tokens" (such as silverware, bed sheets, towels and the television set) of your vacation stay. It is called theft.

    In Trump's case his legal team needs to worry about violations of the espionage act, mishandling of classified documents and obstruction of justice. In fact Trump's lawyers may be charged with some of those crimes.

    Well, as we snowflakes always get a kick out of reminding the Trumpsy losers...

    "Trump LOST the House, Presidency AND Senate. Banks cut ties. Accountants quit. Brand is worthless. Company, CFO indicted. Thrown off Twitter and FB. His platform failing. Engineered a coup. Stole confidential documents. Owes everyone. Sued by everyone. Six bankruptcies. Charity shut down. University deemed bogus. Failed in the casino business, as the house! Booed at World Series. Laughed at in the UN. Lost 63 post-election lawsuits. Even lost FAKE audits. Now losing his mind. Soon his freedom. If Trump's not a loser … WHO IS?"

    The biggest losers are actually the Trumpsies. His followers, his apologists and his enablers, you know, those who voted for him. Lol !!!

    ~Duty to warn~

    islander,
    Add to the losingest loser's losing streak his moribund Truth-Social losses:

    Washington (CNN)Truth Social, the Twitter-like social network backed by former President Donald Trump, remains unavailable on Google's Android app store because of deficiencies in the app's content moderation systems, according to a Google spokesperson.

    (FOX Business)Former President Donald Trump’s social media outfit, Truth Social, is locked in a bitter battle with one of its vendors claiming that the platform is stiffing the company out of more than $1 million in contractually obligated payments, FOX Business has learned.

    If the allegations are true, they would suggest that Truth Social’s finances are in significant disarray, people with direct knowledge of the matter say. Internet infrastructure company RightForge is said to be among Truth Social’s largest vendors and creditors, these people say.

    Not to defend Trump, or Truth Social but the Swamp is ubiquitous.

    Curt, I've been hearing about the trouble Trump's social network "Truth Social" is having but can anybody actually be surprised?

    Who in their right mind would risk doing business with Trump except one who has been conned into believing that somehow it's worth it, and unlike so many others, "they" are going to come out making money !!

    Islander,
    Other than stupidity, I cannot explain why anybody would have anything to do with Trump. He famous for not paying his bills, breaking promises and getting his supporters into legal trouble. He is the scorpion in the scorpion fable he likes to repeat. Apparently respected lawyers are among those who are avoiding Trump.

    HtS,
    Somebody has to be against crime and the encouragement of crime. Thank goodness for ubiquitous entities like Google drawing the line. Certainly Republicans are not against criminal activity. Understandably, Google does not want to be the "host of violent speech, such as calls for civil war to defend Trump’s honor."
