The last FBI agent had scarcely cleared the gates of President Trump’s Mar-A-Lago estate when the Deep State was on the attack. The Washington Post ran an unsourced story alleging that, along with picture albums, a tour of Melania Trump’s closet, and Roger Stone’s clemency letter, “[c]lassified documents relating to nuclear weapons were among the items FBI agents sought in a search of former president Donald Trump’s Florida residence on Monday.” See Nuclear Hot Social Media Takes on Washington Post’s ‘Bombshell’ Report About FBI Raid.
This naturally set progressive hearts aflutter. Showing the same critical thought exhibited when they were punked for four years by a has-been Brit spy and opposition research firm hired by Hillary Clinton, the left jumped on the story.
They weren’t the only ones making hay of the obvious bullsh** spread by the Washington Post. Russian television host and Duma member from Putin’s United Russia Party, Yevgeny Popov, was right on top of it.

Turns out that the investigation against Trump has to do with the disappearance of secret documents from the White House, related to the development of nuclear weapons by the U.S. The FBI isn’t saying what kinds of weapons, or what they found in Trump’s estate. Obviously, if there were any important documents, they’ve been studying them in Moscow for a while.
Of course, the left was all over this like a rash. This is one of the more sane responses.
Well Trump supporters, Russian media saying that Trump let Putin have some of the USA’s most advanced nuclear secrets….

Do I think O’Brien believes this? No. I do believe that he thinks the people that read him are stupid enough to believe it.
The amusing side to this story was watching the jerkwads with the Ukrainian flag in their profile suddenly believing Russian propaganda and the “Ukraine is the most corrupt country in the world” crowd suddenly finding Russian propaganda they couldn’t convince themselves to believe.
There is no doubt that a lot of damage was done to US politics by the cheap stunt Merrick Garland stage-managed. More damage is being done by leaks that claim President Trump had “nuclear secrets” or similar bullsh**. We need to keep score on this one because there needs to be payback.
