    Also seems like the sort of person who probably would prefer their social discourse to not involve politics.

    Merrick Garland gave a pretty good press conference about the whole thing: https://www.c-span.org/video/?522316...unseal-warrant

    General gist appears to be - he personally approved seeking the search warrant, a judge agreed that there was probable cause, and the main reason they haven't made much in the way of public statement is to protect the party that was subject to the search and their privacy. He also confirmed that Trump's counsel has a copy of the warrant as well as the receipt of what was taken and is free to share that, and that the DOJ filed to unseal the warrant and will release it themselves if Trump doesn't object.

    Last I saw, a judge ordered the DOJ and Trump's counsel to meet and decide whether it can be released and have to have a decision by tomorrow.

    Seemed like a pretty solid and matter-of-fact way of putting the ball back in Trump's court. As usual, won't really sway any MAGAts, but I doubt there's much you can do on that front.

    The guy who attacked the FBI office in Cincinnati is Ricky Shiffer, who was killed in a standoff later in the afternoon. He was posting all sorts of things leading up to this on Truth Social calling for killing FBI agents and "using violence" because the courts are all corrupt. Was also there on January 6th. I haven't seen any evidence that he actually entered the capitol building, but he definitely went through police lines.

    Pretty impressively efficient domestic terrorism pipeline we've got going here.

    Donnie has a debt of blood on his tiny hands.

    Don't quote me, but someone's going to him to collect, eventually.

    It will get ugly.

    Agree, but he just doesn't care cause he won't get penalized in any way.

    Per the Washington Post

    Classified documents relating to nuclear weapons were among the items FBI agents sought in a search of former president Donald Trump’s Florida residence on Monday, according to people familiar with the investigation.
