Behind all of the political posturing and facades, and underneath the simmering, tumultuous chaos of Washington DC, there are some subtle clues as to the real conflict that our nation faces.
Sure, we see plenty of hyperbole these days. Every news story brings with it a cloud of soundbites and spin that makes it nearly impossible to discern the wheat from the chaff, unless you know how to view the events themselves as moves in a chess game.
Let’s take the last few days as an example, with Donald Trump having been granted his request for a special master to halt the DOJ’s inspection of material removed from his Florida home by the FBI last month. The decision was widely seen as a “win” for Trump.
And, in response to this, the DOJ has made a move of their own, releasing a tidbit of information regarding what it is that they found at Mar-a-Lago.
A document describing a foreign government’s military defenses, including its nuclear capabilities, was found in the FBI’s search last month of former President Donald Trump’s Florida home, the Washington Post reported on Tuesday.
The Post report, which cited people familiar with the matter, did not identify the foreign government discussed in the document, nor did it indicate whether the foreign government was friendly or hostile to the United States.
An FBI spokesperson declined to comment on the report. Trump representatives did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Trump may have the last laugh, however, as the judge who ruled in favor of appointing the special master appeared to indicate in her ruling that the former President is likely due a great deal more executive privilege than the DOJ has been considering him to have – a decision that could have an impact on a number of Trump-related investigations.
