When speaking at a rally in Arizona, former President Donald Trump made a startling announcement the Democrats had placed a “trigger warning” on the Constitution. His comment is in line with his other statements that Democrats were coming after MAGA Republicans. Something that even Biden lent credence to when he said that MAGA Republicans were basically America’s homegrown terrorists.
After that, Trump addressed his supporters and warned about the Democrats, stating that Democrats are the ones who destroyed records and that “they plant documents.” He insisted that it was the Democrats that were weaponizing the DOJ and planting evidence.
Trump went on to state that Democrats were tampering with the documentation. He asked if there was a book that discussed the destruction of nuclear weapons or how to make them cheap. All the while, under a hot Azorina sun, he ignored the heat and continued pounding the Democrats. In a sarcastic voice, he intoned, “Let’s put that in the same box as Trump;” He accused DOJ of forging the paperwork, claiming, “that’s for sure.” He felt that the DOJ has poor standing in the community. Look at the many kinds of stuff; this is only a small portion of what I’ve read. Who would want to hang around with someone like that? He hounded home the message by declaring that we would be safer inside the Chinese restaurant.
Trump began making allegations that the documents had been fabricated almost immediately after watching the FBI (through video surveillance) tear through the Mar-a-Lago home. Where they claim to have seized federal documents that had been “stolen.” Never mind that the FBI later admitted to taking his passport, photos, and according to Trump, his medical records. They also revealed that they likely took attorney-client documents as well. Trump’s personal social media website witnessed his shock and outrage. He unequivocally rejected the notion that he was in possession of such a paper involving nuclear weapons.
After that, Trump filed a lawsuit to halt the examination of papers, where his legal rights were back by a judge in Florida; he also requested to have his documents returned to him. In their response to Trump’s lawsuit, the Justice Department displayed a photograph of the folders of the papers, which indicated that they stated: “TOP SECRET” or “CLASSIFIED,” along with a number of acronyms under which the materials were classified—claiming that one of the acronyms referred to initiatives dealing with nuclear energy that the Pentagon handled.
Frank Figliuzzi, who was once the assistant director of counterintelligence at the FBI, claimed that some of the files had references to “special access programs,” which were once governed by the Atomic Energy Act but were transferred to the Pentagon for military reasons.
Figliuzzi explained, “I’m not trying to be unnecessarily dramatic.” Even if we talk about special access programs, we encounter complications. That is the degree of their sensitivity. The focus is on the project at hand. The government may conduct an in-depth study on some really sensitive technology over some time. It is possible that this will be the subsequent version of a nuclear program or a submarine. They may be working on a brand-new weapon design right now. This may be part of an ongoing plan to recruit new members for a specific terrorist group.
Simply put, we have no idea. But we are aware that time is of the essence. You have the most restricted access possible and are briefed when you enter and leave the facility.
The DOJ noted empty folders. The National Archives and Record Administration (NARA) admitted that Trump returned documents to them. They are now claiming that documents are still missing, but they can’t even tell you what documents are missing
