Politics is, if nothing else, a game of timing. It’s a volley of verbal ammunition and figurative firebombs that crescendo in chaotic harmony.
And, if you know what you’re looking for, you can almost predict when the louder thuds would hit.
Such was the case this week after Donald Trump scored a rather significant victory in court, with a “special master” now in the process of being appointed to oversee the DOJ’s retrieval of documents from Mar-a-Lago. You just knew that they weren’t going to let him have this victory, and the next thing you know, the story turned nuclear…literally.
A document describing a foreign government’s military defenses, including its nuclear capabilities, was found in the FBI’s search last month of former President Donald Trump’s Florida home, the Washington Post reported on Tuesday.
The Post report, which cited people familiar with the matter, did not identify the foreign government discussed in the document, nor did it indicate whether the foreign government was friendly or hostile to the United States.
They’re claiming that the document was uniquely secret.
According to the Post report, some of the seized documents detail top-secret U.S. operations that require special clearances, not just top-secret clearance.Advertisement - story continues below
Some of the documents are so restricted that even some of the Biden administration’s senior-most national security officials were not authorized to review them, the Post said.
The DOJ’s well-timed leak to the Washington Post may be a great deal of noise and fury signifying nothing, however, as Trump has yet to be charged with a crime.
