Former FBI Lawyer says ‘Substantial Criminal Case’ Against Trump is Developing


There has been no shortage of avenues of attack taken by the political opponents of Donald Trump, from the RussiaGate hoax to the raid of Mar-a-Lago, but at least one former FBI official seems to think that the former President is truly in the crosshairs now.

The current controversy embroiling the former President has to do with documents from his presidency being stored at Mar-a-Lago that the FBI recently seized – allegedly over 700 pages of which was considered classified.

Now, one former government lawyer seems to think that this could be what brings Trump down.

Former FBI General Counsel Andrew Weissman explained in great detail why Monday was a momentous news day for the allegedly purloined classified documents retrieved from former President Donald Trump from his Mar-a-Lago home two weeks ago.

In a Tuesday morning appearance on Morning Joe, the former FBI exec turned MSNBC analyst noted that one particular sentence in a New York Times report was “incredibly damning” for the former president and added that — if the reporting is accurate — the Department of Justice is looking at a “substantial criminal case” against Trump.

The context of the conversation includes several new and related stories that broke on Monday. Pro-Trump media figure John Solomon published a memo from the National Archives to Trump in which he breathlessly implicated the Biden White House being involved politically. The memo reveals standard operating procedure and is far from exculpatory of the former president.

And while this certainly sounds troubling for the former Commander in Chief, we have to remember that this is Teflon Don we’re talking about here, and there hasn’t yet been a significant law enforcement victory against him.
