The Justice Department has completed an initial analysis of the boxes seized from Mar-a-Lago and separated the burger and Snickers wrappers from the stuff Donald Trump was tossing around, as he travelled around the world. Intelligence officials should have some sleepless nights as they go through things this week.
Everyone knows Trump gave aid and comfort to terrorists here and abroad for years, but it might become a shock to his followers if he were to suddenly quit getting away with it. Lindsey Graham might start rioting in the streets. The Federalist wonders if magistrate judges haven’t been unconstitutional for the last 200 years.
Conservatives would rather give tax breaks to billionaires than loan forgiveness to the egghead elite at public and community colleges, but that’s a tough one to sell to most voters. Some Republican candidates wish to tuck away their values for the next couple of months, but their base demands their fascism remain fully turgid. Democrats are campaigning capably, plus they’re not Republicans so this election is going about as nicely as one would expect.
