#Biden was plotting to assassinate himself, acc/to the logic used by #Trump & #MAGA #Republicans.

The #DOJ policy statement on when officers can use #LethalForce —misrepresented by Trump & his supporters as proof of an assassination plot at #MarALago —was also in the paperwork for the consensual search the #FBI conducted of #POTUS Biden’s Wilmington home, looking for #ClassifiedDocuments.

Dear Citizens,

This is an urgent, dangerous threat! We CAN'T ignore it.

For the sake of our democracy and the memory of those who fought against such evil, WE MUST STOP Trump.

Never again.

4 months after the #FBI raided #MarALago, Trump’s attys discovered 4 docs marked #classified in his personal bedroom.
That revelation was among several cited by US District Judge Beryl Howell in a newly unsealed 2023 opinion that found prosecutors had presented compelling #evidence that #Trump #knowingly stashed #NationalSecurity docs in his home & then tried to conceal them when the #DOJ tried to retrieve them.

Throughout the opinion, Howell — who was chief judge of the Washington, DC federal district court at the time — described w/varying degrees of incredulity how 4 documents w/ classification markings could have been discovered in #Trump’s private quarters months after prosecutors had subpoenaed them & the #FBI conducted its own exhaustive search of the property.

“Notably, no excuse is provided as to how the former president could miss the classified-marked documents found in his own bedroom at Mar-a-Lago,” Howell wrote.

In a footnote, #Howell also noted that another #Trump adviser connected to his SaveAmerica #PAC had acknowledged scanning the contents of the box that contained the #classified materials in 2021 & storing them on a personal laptop provided by the PAC.

Howell’s opinion was unsealed along w/a large batch of other previously secret grand jury-related docs stemming from the investigation into #Trump for withholding reams of #ClassifiedDocuments after leaving office in 2021, incl’g some of the nation’s most sensitive #MilitarySecrets. US Dist Judge #AileenCannon, a Trump appointee based in #Florida, released the batch of docs Tues after lengthy negotiations w/ #JackSmith’s team & Trump’s lawyers over redactions.

"[The New York Case] may be the least serious of the four criminal cases against [Trump], and I’m worried that Trump’s successful stalling of the other three cases will cause the news media to sideline coverage of those charges – involving the plot to overturn the 2020 election and the theft of secret documents."

"If news outlets don’t keep those cases front-and-center in the run-up to the 2024 election, they’ll be playing into the hands of the MAGA Republicans who are desperately delaying justice. …

The right-wing propagandists who say Trump is the victim of 'lawfare' and a 'witch hunt' won’t stop trying to undermine the credibility of our courts, so honest journalists can’t stop bringing the facts either."

How should numeric probabilities be translated into words? Maybe they shouldn't be.

"Words of estimative probability" wreak havoc in high-stakes communication like assessments and briefings, in part because intelligence and defense institutions map numbers to different words (!) — see Amelia Kahn's forthcoming work at ameliakahn.wordpress.com.

Attorneys for Ryan Corbett, an American imprisoned in Afghanistan by the Taliban without charge since 2022, have filed new petitions to the U.N. urging action to secure his release. Two non-Americans who were jailed with Corbett but have since been released testified to his deteriorating condition, saying he could soon be dead. Corbett’s wife, Anna, says her requests for meetings with President Biden and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan have not been answered. CBS News has more.

On the important issue of #Border Security, Republicans are perpetuating a fraud on Americans. Republicans block all debate and ammendment to our border security bill.

Republicans rejected the bipartisan measure negotiated by their own members because they take orders from and are controlled by Donald. Republicans killed the bill because Donald ordered it. This is weakness to take orders from someone who was voted out of office, the adjudicated fraud, adjudicated rapist in a complete ethical collapse and dereliction of their duty. They are endangering the Security of all Americans.
