Special counsel Jack Smith added three more charges against former President Trump to the 37 charges he’s already facing for possessing his own Administration’s documents. These are one count of “willful retention of national defense information” (don't ALL ex-Presidents retain national defense information?) and two counts of obstruction. Obstruction is the preferred fallback of overzealous federal prosecutors: if you can’t prove someone committed an actual crime, then charge them with trying to obstruct your investigation of the nonexistent crime.

Smith also charged another person, Mar-A-Lago maintenance man Carlos de Oliveira, with obstruction for allegedly attempting to delete surveillance video footage. He allegedly told another worker that the “boss” wanted the server wiped, and the other worker said he didn’t know how and didn’t think that would be allowed. So in short, federal charges against a regular working person over a secondhand claim that Trump wanted something done which apparently wasn’t done. De Oliveira is also being charged with making “false statements and representations in a voluntary interview with the FBI.” Michael Flynn could’ve told him never to give a voluntary interview to the FBI.

Trump reacted as you might expect to this latest pile of bananas loaded onto the banana republic express that’s running over him. He called the charges “ridiculous” and accused Smith of prosecutorial misconduct and “election interference at the highest level.” He said they’re harassing his company, his family and him, and "If I weren’t leading Biden by a lot in numerous polls, and wasn’t going to be the Republican nominee, it wouldn’t be happening.”

This is on top of reportedly looming indictments of Trump for allegedly inciting the January 6th riot by telling people to peacefully protest.

As usual, the Babylon Bee provides more truth than the real news does on this topic…

By the way, if the idea of all these indictments is to convince voters that Trump is a criminal (and not certain other Oval Office occupants we could name), it doesn’t seem to be working on too many people other than the cast of “The View.” A new Harvard-Harris poll of registered voters found that 56% believe the indictments of Trump by Biden’s DOJ are politically-motivated interference in the 2024 election, and 57% believe he’ll be acquitted. Only 44% believe it’s a “fair application of the law.” Allow me to introduce them to Hunter Biden’s plea deal.

Gerald Ford took a lot of heat for pardoning Richard Nixon, but he was wise enough to know that prosecuting former Presidents is the hallmark of tyrannies and it would do nothing but rip the country apart. Unfortunately, this Administration has ripped up over two centuries of tradition and is attempting to jail a former President because it has no wisdom nor any concern for the good of the nation as a whole. It just has a blind obsession with clinging to power at all costs.

Incidentally, I’m not a vindictive sort, but if I had Trump’s money, I would probably buy the houses on either side of Jack Smith’s home and turn one of them into a halfway house for recently-released drug addicts and the other into a free rehearsal space for local garage bands. If it’s a gated community with an HOA that bans that, I’d buy enough houses to take over the HOA and then assess Smith the maximum fines for every piddly infraction of the rules that I could possibly come up with. See how he likes it.
