Mueller’s Russian Probe
I don’t know about you, but when someone suggests a ‘reason’ for Trump’s selectively keeping some confidential and top secret files at Mar-a-Lago, I weigh it up with my own assessment of his character.
It’s all about Trump!
We know that he had a ‘thing’ about being “vindicated” by Bill Barr’s assessment of the Mueller investigation, but his need for vengeance knows no bounds. The emails between those two FBI agents could be especially damaging if they got out: not damaging for Trump, but for the FBI. It would ‘prove’ once and for all time that they really had it in for him. Now, it seems that three days before the end of Trump’s term, Mark Meadows was asking for the documents to be redacted and declassified, so that they could be passed to a sympathetic journalist at the New York Times.
I am willing to bet money on the fact that these are the files the FBI wanted back, so that Trump wouldn’t have a ‘get out of jail free’ card. National security threat? Yes, because then everyone would know how the FBI really works.
