No, Trump is not being investigated for espionage

No doubt you will read many headlines stating that one of the laws President Trump is being investigated for violating is the Espionage Act.

That’s technically true, but the connotation will be that he is therefore going to be accused of being a spy. And that’s not what’s going on. The sections of the Act he is being probed for involve improper use of federal materials. That is, taking White House documents, some of which may allegedly have been classified, down to Florida with him.

According to Fox News:

The government conducted the search in response to what it believes to be a violation of federal laws: 18 USC 793 — Gathering, transmitting or losing defense information; 18 USC 2071 — Concealment, removal or mutilation; and 18 USC 1519 — Destruction, alteration or falsification of records in Federal investigations.

The allegation of “gathering, transmitting or losing defense information” falls under the Espionage Act.

The former president and his team, though, are disputing the classification and believe the information and records to have been declassified.

Trump posted on his TRUTH Social account Friday that the documents were “all declassified.”

“Number one, it was all declassified. Number two, they didn’t need to ‘seize’ anything,” Trump posted. “They could have had it anytime they wanted without playing politics and breaking into Mar-a-Lago.”

Trump added: “It was in secured storage, with an additional lock put on as per their request.”

  1. I have been keeping President Trump in my prayers. They have been after him, his family and his business in a vicious, destructive and brutal manner since the days he was running for President back in 2015/2016. It has been non-stop and it continues to this day. Our nation is also in need of a lot of prayers. Dark days like these days I have never seen in our country my entire 50 years of adult life. We need devine help in pulling out of this darkness; if not, not only our country, but also the world will be suffering horribly given that Communist China, Putin and other evil actors are ready to fill the void if our country collapses.

    1. Well, maybe.

      Personally, I think fatalism, played straight, is unbecoming. If you really think the fight is already lost, then I would suggest, with all due respect, that it is yourself, and not the fight, which is lost.

      We have already begun to see the ass covering, finger pointing, and whopper telling, which betrays the desperation the enemy clearly feels. This week’s Stasi theater, was not a show of strength, but an act of utter desperation. They’re toast, buttered, and with a side of crispy bacon, and you’d better believe they know it. They wouldn’t have attempted this otherwise.

      But even more than that, some of the more vociferous troublemakers are already playing out the string, having lost their primary elections. Baltimore, for instance, has already diselected Marilyn Mosby, of Freddie Grey infamy. School board members have been shown the door in San Francisco. How safe can any of them be?

      Liz Cheney will almost certainly be next; her days as a viable voice in Congress are numbered, and I think the number in question isn’t even in the double digits. When the polls close in Wyoming on Tuesday night, she’ll most likely be on the ash heap of history.

      So then, I believe what we are witnessing, nay, what we are party to, is not the pained death throes of the American experiment, and the triumph of the Davoisie. Have you not seen the farmers in the Netherlands? Did you miss what happened in Sri Lanka?

      What we are party to, then, is the labor pangs of a new birth of freedom, not merely for ourselves, but for all mankind.

      It won’t be painless, and it won’t be as swift as we wish; but eventually, we win, they lose.

      Take courage; and don’t tell me it’s the end of everything. It always seems the darkest before the light.

      1. That’s true darkangel. Light will do away with darkness. And Light (that is God) is the power that will do it. That is why I go to Him in prayer and supplication that we not succumb to this darkness, that Light will do away with this darkness. The Evil One (darkness) is no match for the Holy One.

  2. I seriously believe He had the doc’s from being framed by FBI/DOJ and some of that info would have exonerated Him and was quashed. He had said he would release them. That would be a big black eye for the weaponized government.
