The Implausible Excuse for the Search

 Supposedly, Trump kept the nuclear launch codes.  8/12/22 Guardian is slightly ambiguous about it:

FBI agents were looking for secret documents about nuclear weapons among other classified material when they searched Donald Trump’s home on Monday, it has been reported.

The Washington Post cited people familiar with the investigation as saying nuclear weapons documents were thought to be in the trove the FBI was hunting in Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. They did not specify what kind of documents or whether they referred to the US arsenal or another country’s.

8/12/22 Newsweek is a little clearer:

Former 'Nuke Football' Handler Hits Out After Trump Nuclear Code Claims

So the nuclear launch codes don not change regularly? I have to change my password at the community college where I teach every three months, and the most dangerous document that I share with my students is the U.S. Constitution.  If this was the real issue why did they wait 19 months to retrieve it?  What could Trump (or Putin) do?  Call SAC missile bases and order a launch?  Right.  

"Minot AFB.  Hello?"

"This is President Trump (or President Putin).  I have the code to order a Minuteman launch.  Do you have a pen and paper?

These idiots in the Swamp are as smart as President* Biden.

  1. It makes you wonder, what is it about Hunter Biden that convinces everyone he is the smartest man they know?
    He really knows how to hold his booze and blow?
    So, how smart, really was the man we were told for eight years was always the smartest man in the room?
