A lot of folks seem to have forgotten that no matter what Trump appointee Judge Aileen Cannon says, Donald Trump is still being investigated for violating the Espionage Act, obstruction of justice and other crimes again the people of the United States of America. He sold us out.

J.D. Vance Here’s J.D. Vance with the guy who violated the Espionage Act, ignored COVID, and tried to overthrow the Presidential Election. I’ll stick with Tim Ryan. Remember JD was once a never Trumper.

The Declass Defense 🧵: FPOTUS’s recent stmts that he declassified “everything” and may have done it secretly (“by thinking about it”) merit a review of how a secret declassification order would impact an Espionage Act charge for retaining nat'l defense info (“retention charge').

Key — and I mean, key — to Espionage Act offense that Justice Department cited in Mar-a-Lago search warrant is if Trump “willfully” retained national defense information.

This gets prosecutors a long way there.👇👇👇

More than 200 alleged instances of fraud? On top of an unrelated investigation into violations of the Espionage Act. On top of an unrelated investigation into an attempted coup...

“No one is above the law” is only true if we make it so.

Prosecute Trump.

Donald Trump will almost certainly face charges of violating the Espionage Act, which was used to prosecute Edward Snowden, who has now been granted Russian citizenship by Vladimir Putin. — The universe has a remarkably twisted sense of irony.

Good thoughts here from Brandon Van Grack on how a declassification defense might impact an Espionage Act charge. We have some minor differences in how we view a few issues, but let me see if I can synthesize where we might agree and disagree. First, let's look at where we might agree:

Hmmm. Does this mean Russia grants citizenship to all Americans accused of violating the Espionage Act and stealing government documents?

Trump’s search warrant revealed that he is being investigated for violating the Espionage Act which states no one can remove govt documents no matter the classification. And for obstruction for destroying govt documents.

The Sedition Act of 1918 made it illegal “by word or act” to “oppose the cause of the United States.” Combined with the Espionage Act of 1917, Archdemocrats silenced the will of the people in order to “save democracy.” Sound familiar?

Theft of U.S. classified information and violating the Espionage Act means Russian citizenship?
If so, we have another applicant who's really earned it.
We should send him right on over....

And let's not lose sight of the key point:

The only reason Snowden -- who revealed illegal domestic spying -- can't come home is because the Obama Admin abused the Espionage Act to prosecute more whistleblowers than all previous presidents combined.👇

NEW: Russian state TV has announced they have copies of the top-secret nuclear documents that Trump stole from the WH.

Susan Collins says she's 'disappointed' that Donald Trump violated the Espionage Act,...

... but she's sure 'he's learned his lesson', and won't do it again.
