    Some major alarms went off among Democrats and liberal pundits after Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) predicted “riots” in the streets if Donald Trump is prosecuted over his alleged mishandling of classified documents, but according to the senator, he was just stating “the obvious.” Graham addressed his comments, which were even condemned by President Joe Biden, with CNBC’s Steve Sedgwick in a Saturday interview where he said he rejects political violence and believes Trump being prosecuted would confirm a double standard Republicans like himself suspect in the FBI. “What I tried to do is state the obvious,” Graham said, then name checking the Robert Mueller Russia collusion investigation and the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story as examples of law enforcement showing an alleged bias. The senator also claimed Hillary Clinton’s own history of using a home server as secretary of state presents a problem if Trump is prosecuted. “At the end of the day, nothing happened to her. So here’s what I said. The raid on President Trump’s home, the likely nominee for 2024, better bear some fruit here....
    Donald Trump bragged to some of his closest allies that he had 'intelligence' on French President Emmanuel Macron's sex and love life that he learned during his time and president, a new report reveals.  Two people with knowledge of the matter told Rolling Stone that Trump claimed to have learned about the dirt on Macron through briefings and viewing intelligence, but they admit it was sometimes hard to discern what information was real because he was a gossip. 'It is often hard to tell if he's bullshitting or not,' one source said. Macron, 44, has been married to his wife Brigitte, 69, since 2007. Nearly 25 years his senior, Brigitte was previously Macron's teacher before the two got married. Donald Trump (right) bragged during and after his time in office that he has dirt on French President Emmanuel Macron's (left) sex and personal life through 'intelligence' he received as president. During the raid on Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate earlier this month, the FBI found a document it listed as 'info re: President of France' Macron has been married to Brigitte (left)...
    On Friday, the Justice Department released its highly anticipated affidavit laying out the justifications for the Aug. 8 Mar-a-Lago raid. While the document sheds additional light on why federal authorities believed the search and seizure at former President Donald Trump's home was necessary, large swaths of the document were heavily redacted, and many questions about the raid that sent shockwaves across the nation continue to linger. Here are six key points that we don't know about the raid.

(AP Photo/Jon Elswick) What was in those documents? There have been numerous reports that material seized from Mar-a-Lago during the document collections in January, June, and August contained material with classified markings. The affidavit revealed that 184 unique documents confiscated during the January exchange with the National Archives and Records Administration, which prompted the DOJ inquiry, bore classified...
    Donald Trump is trying to cast doubt on Thursday on President Joe Biden's assertion that he knew nothing about the FBI's raid of Mar-a-Lago before it happened. 'Joe Biden said he knew nothing about the Break-In of Mar-a-Lago or, the greatest political attack in the history of the U.S. Does anybody really believe this???' Trump wrote on his social media app, Truth Social. His daughter-in-law Lara Trump also accused Biden of lying on Thursday morning after the commander-in-chief said he had 'zero' advance notice of the FBI's unannounced search of Mar-a-Lago. 'I don't think anyone believes Joe Biden,' she said on Fox & Friends. 'We know it's a lie.'  She spoke just a few hours before the deadline for Biden's Justice Department to submit a redacted version of the affidavit used to obtain the search warrant behind the raid. The former president and his allies have been clamoring for the unredacted version of the affidavit to be released, claiming it would prove that the search was executed on political grounds. But federal prosecutors warned the document's release could significantly hamper their ongoing...
    President Joe Biden flew back to the White House Wednesday morning, after a series of vacation stops that took him to the beaches of South Carolina and Delaware amid fast-paced developments in the story about the FBI's Mar-a-Lago raid. He flew back from his Rehoboth Beach home to Washington a day after primary elections in New York and Florida set the stage for the November elections, where Democrats have seen polling gains but Biden's low approval rating continues to be a drag on his party's prospects. He'll be back in the Oval Office after yet another August that saw unexpected bombshell news: this time the FBI's raid of former President Donald Trump's home at Mar-a-Lago. The White House has repeatedly said Biden did not know about the raid, which was authorized by Attorney General Merrick Garland, in advance.  President Joe Biden boards Marine One as he departs from Cape Henlopen State Park in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, on August 24, 2022. He returns to the White House after recent visits to South Carolina, Wilmington, and his beach home But the emerging...
    by Paul du Quenoy   “There’s so much we don’t know!” says any liberal losing an argument about the dramatic FBI raid last week on Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump’s Palm Beach residence and private club. There are, indeed, some things that we do not know, but what we do know is already quite revealing. We know that the raid – which involved 30 FBI agents and three Justice Department lawyers – lasted over nine hours and was by day’s end reclassified as a “search” by all government agencies and the entire legacy media. We know that this supposed “search” was personally ordered not by FBI Director Christopher Wray, but by Attorney General Merrick Garland, a highly partisan Biden Administration appointee who has implied that parents objecting to critical race theory in public schools are domestic terrorists, and who refused to provide home security protection to Supreme Court justices in the majority of the recent ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade. We also know that Garland and all other administration officials remained silent about his involvement for three days. We know that President Biden has refused to answer any...
    Glenn also explained that the FBI broke into a specific "safe room" that contained national archives, which Trump was allegedly told by investigators to keep in a locked room. "[Trump] made a safe room, and put two locks on it, at their request. And that's what they broke into," Glenn said. "This doesn't look good for the FBI," he added.

    Fox News contributor and political strategist Jessica Tarlov shot down some of the “mistruths and assumptions that are being projected all over television” on Wednesday’s episode of the top-rated The Five. Tarlov, in a discussion about the FBI’s Monday raid on former President Donald Trump’s Florida mansion, began by noting many Democrats have also come out asking for clarification as to why the raid took place. “Andrew Cuomo came out and said yesterday that we’ve got to hear about this. He’s not necessarily in good stead with the party, but he is certainly a prominent Democrat,” she began, adding: I think people generally want answers. I think everyone is unified. The reason that they want those answers are different. And Democrats are certainly looking at this and how it’s been portrayed in terms of punditry and the kind of articles that have been written about this and the comments that have been made and our heads are absolutely spinning as to the number of mistruths and assumptions that are being projected all over television. “I mean, from the idea that...
    An ex-Louisville Police detective has been arrested and charged by the FBI for lying on a search warrant which led to the deadly raid at Breonna Taylor’s apartment in 2020. Joshua Jaynes was fired by the Louisville Metro Police department, in Kentucky, for his actions which meant Taylor, 26, was shot and killed by cops. His attorney, Thomas Clay, has confirmed that Jaynes was taken into custody by the FBI this morning, though the official charges are unclear. However he said that he believes that it relates to a conspiracy to falsify records in relation to a federal investigation. Clay added that Jaynes was taken to a detention facility in Oldham County, and it is unclear when the initial court hearing may occur.  He said that he believes that two other LMPD officers involved in Taylors case, Kelly Hannah Goodlett and Kyle Meany, may also be facing federal charges.  Jaynes, 40, was sacked in January 2021 for adding a false statement to his sworn affidavit for the 'no knock' warrant to search Taylors apartment over her drug dealer ex-boyfriend.  Joshua...
    Donald Trump on Thursday slammed the FBI raid on 'patriot' Rudy Giuliani's Manhattan apartment, saying it is 'very unfair'.  The former president spoke out to defend his personal attorney after federal agents raided the 76-year-old former New York City mayor's home and office Wednesday, taking with them his electronic devices.  Trump told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo: 'Rudy Giuliani is a great patriot. He just loves this country, and they raid his apartment. 'It's like so unfair and...it's like a double standard like I don't think anybody's ever seen before. It's very, very unfair. Rudy is a patriot who loves this country.'  The raid signals a major escalation of the Justice Department's investigation into any possible violation of federal lobbying laws and the business dealings of Giuliani.  The raid may have been spurred by a voicemail where he hinted at having a burner phone, it was claimed Wednesday. Giuliani, once celebrated for his leadership after 9/11, has been under federal scrutiny for several years over his ties to Ukraine. The dual searches sent the strongest signal yet that he could eventually face federal...

    YouTube star Jake Paul's home was raided by the FBI earlier this month. Eric Espada/Getty Images Fans are speculating that Jake Paul is making a music video about the August 5 FBI raid on his home. On Wednesday, an entertainment industry professional advertised a casting call for a "major production" with Jake Paul. The post was then deleted, and the original poster told Insider that he was not, in fact, working with Paul. Backstage, a platform for working actors and creatives, also advertised a casting for a "Jake Paul video reenacting his recent run-in with the law." Representatives for Paul and Backstage did not return Insider's requests for comment. It remains unclear whether the YouTube star is affiliated with any of the advertised projects.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    CNN is celebrating an award it received over the controversial 2019 filming of the FBI raid and arrest of Roger Stone, one of President Donald Trump's longtime friends and campaign associates. The award for journalism was given to CNN by the White House Correspondents' Association on Tuesday. "CNN's reporting on the Roger Stone arrest began a month earlier, with a clue about a court scheduling anomaly. Then came unusual grand jury activity. Then an odd, packed suitcase wheeled by one of the prosecutors in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Stone," the WHCA judges said of the report. "It culminated early in the morning of Jan. 25, 2019, when a CNN producer and a photojournalist, staked outside of Stone's home in Ft. Lauderdale, captured the 5 a.m., no-knock raid by the FBI of the former confidant of President Donald Trump," the judges added. The controversy Some on social media questioned whether CNN merited praise over the reporting after speculation that the network was tipped off about the arrest, ostensibly by someone within...
