    Just weeks before the trip, as ABC News has previously reported, Trump allegedly had the lock on a closet in his residence changed while his attorney was in Mar-a-Lago’s basement searching for classified documents in a storage room that he was told contained all such documents. The FBI failed to check the locked closet in Trump’s residence when they searched the estate in August 2022, which some investigators later came to believe should have been done.

    It would almost be funny that the FBI just took for granted whatever trump had wouldn’t have been locked up if this wasn’t so serious.

    Like, we know what cops searching a regular house is like, wasn’t it J Cole surveillance that showed them closing doors just so they can break them down? That was just on rumors there was drugs somewhere in the house.

    But when it’s trump and secret documents a lock on a closet is fucking insurmountable?!

      Assuming there was any doubt from the FBI agents onsite about opening that door it could have been solved really easily.

      if the FBI agents on site were not complicit then it would have been as simple as posting someone outside of the door and contacting the judge to ask for clarification of the warrant to make sure it included that room. That fucking simple.

      This was not a small deal and was not about Hunter Biden’s crack smoking or Donald not paying his taxes. The agents in charge of that search should be questioned and, at the very least fired for incompetence. If there is evidence, charge them with conspiracy. This was a case about NATIONAL SECURITY. Fucking nuclear secrets.

    Sounds like Jack Smith is hedging his bets with additional things to charge Trump with if Trump’s pet judge throws out a bunch of charges
