DOJ Moves to Indict Trump for Breaking 106-Year-Old Law

We all know there’s been a witch hunt of sorts going on and aimed at former President Donald Trump for some time, really since he first announced his presidential campaign in 2015. And now, the political left thinks they may have finally gotten enough dirt on him for an indictment.

According to a UK Independent report, Biden’s Department of Justice prosecutors will be looking back to a 1917 law to pull this indictment off.

The 1917 Espionage Act, as you could expect, has a big problem with the mishandling of sensitive information or classified materials. As such, the DOJ thinks they are fully within their rights to indict Trump for doing just that.

As you likely know, Trump’s been under investigation by the DOJ and corrupt FBI for a while now, basically beginning last August when the FBI raided his Mar-a-Lago home and confiscated several boxes that have been labeled as classified.

But according to Trump, he’s done nothing wrong. Yes, he had nationally related documents in his home, and long after, he was no longer in office. But as president, he says he declassified them, which was fully in his power.

However, according to the Independent’s report, which did not name its sources, section 793 of the 1917 Espionage Act, subsection (f) could potentially still be aimed at Trump “even if he was authorized to possess the information as president.”

If such materials are “removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of his trust, or to be lost, stolen, abstracted, or destroyed….” Trump could be held liable.

But then, so shouldn’t Biden, Obama, and former vice president Mike Pence, all of whom have been subsequently found with similar documents in their possession and at places not located at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave?

Of course, we’ll never see that happen. And that means this is,once again, just all about “getting” Trump and ensuring he can’t win another election.
