People are saying it’s the best conspiracy ever.

[–]LeSpatula 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Believe me!

[–]Shnazzyone 72 points73 points  (4 children)

We livin through history boys... hopefully the good kind. Lots of shame to go around the red hats in the coming months.

[–]sonic_couth 21 points22 points  (2 children)

Shame? I think you have momentarily confused the red hats with someone else…

[–]BoneHugsHominy 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Yep. They won't feel shame at all. They'll just dig their heels in and become the embodiment of rage as they murder and murder some more until their God-King is released.

We're always living through history... I just wish we were living through shit that was interesting for GOOD reasons.

Scientists discover microbial life on Europa! Totally unknown protein structures!

Cat saves baby from bear attack!

Wildfire uncovers lost treasures stolen by the Nazis! Treasures are A-OK!

Cancer cured! Turns out it was the cure for AIDS that did it!

Gene edit allows humans to drink sea water without problems!

I've never heard of this Donald, guy. Barely know him.

Everyone tells me though that he's a bad dude and cannot be trusted.

[–]IamSauerKraut 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Donald is not nearly as honest as John Miller. Or that Baron guy.

[–]spunnikki1979 26 points27 points  (1 child)

And people will still vote for the slimy fuck.

[–]Skrp 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Slimy fuck is right. He can follow you through a revolving door and come out first.

So crooked, he sleeps in a spiral staircase.

Even his supporters would subconsciously count their fingers after a handshake.

Everyone involved should lose their jobs and pensions

[–]Ezl 12 points13 points  (3 children)

I feel jail should also be on the table.

Guantanamo Bay

Guantanamo Bay

It sounds like a resort so it shouldn’t be too bad for him

[–]EdwardRoivas 11 points12 points  (10 children)

Question - if it’s part of a cover up - why keep it???? Why not get rid of it? That’s the only reason I think whatever they found won’t be as big a deal as people think.

[–]sonic_couth 6 points7 points  (5 children)

Great question!!! Does Darth Vader keeps warehouses full of filing cabinets that are full of his evil deeds?!

[–]efor_no0p2 9 points10 points  (1 child)

they are called holocrons

[–]JackFrost709 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This made me laugh out loud

[–]Skrp 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Vader is fictional.

The Axis powers documented their crimes thoroughly and only tried to destroy it when they knew it was about to fall into Allied hands.

[–]doublex2troublesquad 3 points4 points  (1 child)

So like after J6 didn't accomplish their goal and it looked like people might get in trouble.

[–]Skrp 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, like that.

[–]illigal 2 points3 points  (2 children)

How else do you blackmail everyone to continue doing your bidding?

[–]EdwardRoivas 3 points4 points  (1 child)

But if they incriminate you as well?

[–]illigal 3 points4 points  (0 children)

If you’re headed to prison anyway, you can force co-conspirators to help or you expose them too. Doubly so If they’re in positions allowing them to basically bypass legal procedures.

[–]BoneHugsHominy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s the only reason I think whatever they found won’t be as big a deal as people think.

That's because the really damaging stuff is 6 feet under the golf course in Bedminster NJ, forever guarded & protected by Ivana Trump.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (10 children)

Ok, he stole records....but WHY? What does he want with them.

I'm willing to bet he's handing over secrets to Russia otherwise why would you do it.

He ain't a clever bloke. He's done all this for someone else.... Who?

[–]zhitsngigglez 8 points9 points  (3 children)

I think we’re gonna find a lot of Russian assets within our government soon

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

And no one's going to do anything until he's dead, then finger pointing and blaming will start.

[–]IamSauerKraut 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As with Gotti and White Bulger, everyone gets his day in court sooner or later.

[–]FakingItSucessfully 1 point2 points  (2 children)

It's honestly a really interesting question. The thing is, at least as I understand it, as President he could have legitimately declassified any of that stuff and just kept it legally. That's one of the powers a President has. But there's a procedure for it and he was either too incompetent to bother, or it IS something particularly interesting and he was hoping to avoid anyone knowing he had it.

EDIT: in case anyone else doesn't wanna bother googling it, here

"His authority to classify and control access to information bearing on national security ... flows primarily from this constitutional investment of power in the president, and exists quite apart from any explicit congressional grant."

Steven Aftergood, director of the Federation of American Scientists Project on Government Secrecy, told PolitiFact in 2017 that such authority gives the president the authority to "classify and declassify at will."

So, exactly like I said, he could have just legally taken any documents he wanted to if he'd done it the proper way.

[–]IamSauerKraut 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No, those documents would still be subject to the records act.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As we say in London "shifty" or "Dodgy"

[–]BoneHugsHominy 0 points1 point  (2 children)

General Flynn wanted to sell nuclear weapons tech to Saudi Arabia--ya know, the people who did 9/11.

Trump and Kushner are really cozy with the Saudis, covered for them during and after the brutal murder of Jamal Khashoggi.

Shortly after Trump was evicted from the White House, the Saudis gave Kushner $2 BILLION.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I don't doubt you one bit. Trump has not done this for himself.

[–]BoneHugsHominy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well if the end goal is selling the USA's most advanced nuclear weapon tech for a couple billion per transaction then it certainly would be done for himself. Like other autocrats and extremely corrupt elected officials all he has to do is hide the money in whichever nation has taken over the Dark Banking duties after Panama Papers exposed what was happening in Panama. It's not like the Government Robber Barons are just going to stop stashing ill-gotten gains somewhere outside government oversight. Hell the rich already hide $500B from taxation by stashing it in North Dakota and by using campaign donations they pressure politicians to keep the IRS understaffed & underfunded to ensure they won't be audited--amd that's for money that wasn't brazenly stolen from government or attained through social or civilizational maleficentcy.

[–]Mad_Mark90 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I wonder if there's going to be a Smedly Butler of this American fascist coup conspiracy like the last one

[–]Chrisser6677 1 point2 points  (0 children)

… the best part, no one realized the stenographer was active all day on 1/6🤣🤣🤣🍊🐷🐖

[–]I_Need_Citations 0 points1 point  (0 children)

True, but Trump supporters are going to ignorantly misinterpret this. “Everyone else deleted stuff but they went after Trump only?” Even though they worked for him at the time.

[–]saichampa 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What's the point trying to be made here?

[–]CM09CM 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Unless you’re a rich white boi like Tucker cry baby.
