Now that we know that the reason the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided Donald Trump’s home and presidential office in Mar-a-Lago is unlikely to have been related to so-called “nuclear secrets,” there is still widespread speculation about the FBI’s historic intrusion into the former president’s estate.
The “nuclear secrets” that Trump possessed were unrelated to the U.S.’ own capabilities, it turns out; rather, they were nuclear secrets about Iran and China, according to the Washington Post. However, it was readily conceded that the FBI agents were looking for other documents, but they declined to share the details of those documents to the Post (which has essentially become an intelligence community mouthpiece at this point).
While the official cover story is that the National Archives — the glorified librarians for government documents — demanded the former president returned “classified” documents he had in his possession since his time in office, the lack of proportionality in the FBI’s enforcement of the NARA order has raised questions about the sensitivity of said documents in Trump’s possession.
This raises a critical question: What was the FBI really looking for?
Among the most enduring unsolved mysteries surrounding the events at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, are the pipe bombs planted outside the offices of the Republican and Democratic National Committees.
In January, Blaze News revealed that the individual who discovered the device outside the DNC offices and was described by the FBI as a “passerby” was, in fact, a plainclothes U.S. Capitol Police officer.
Now, after reviewing hours of closed-circuit TV video footage, Blaze News can report that two of three U.S. Capitol Police surveillance cameras pointed at the DNC office building were redirected away from the scene shortly after the device was discovered. As part of our investigation, I requested and received access to this footage from Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.) and his staff. Blaze News will reveal more information soon about what the entirety of the video reveals.
The DNC pipe bomb case is of special interest because Kamala Harris was in the building when the device was discovered. Harris, a former U.S. senator from California, was vice-president-elect and under Secret Service protection at the time.
The return of Jon Stewart to "The Daily Show" on Monday night, after a long hiatus, sparked a wave of discontent among liberal journalists and commentators.
The cause of their ire was Stewart's humor directed at President Biden's age and perceived equivocation with former President Trump.
Stewart's comeback to the show, which he will host every Monday night until the 2024 election, was announced last month. This news was met with enthusiasm by many progressives, who fondly remember his 16-year tenure on the show from 1999 to 2015.
Newly released footage from the January 6 Capitol riot appears to show a man firing a gun into the air after climbing scaffolding.
The man in the video allegedly firing shots into the air is identified as John Emanuel Banuelos, who was arrested in 2021 in Utah’s Liberty Park in connection with the fatal stabbing of a 19-year-old. At the time, he told police he was also “in the D.C. riots.” According to NBC News, “The Salt Lake City DA’s office did not pursue a case against Banuelos, who claimed self-defense in Senn’s death.” However, at the time he claimed he was the one who shot the gun into the air on January 6, 2021.
Amidst the controversy surrounding President Biden’s alleged involvement, the focus shifts to the Department of Justice (DOJ), raising concerns of a long-standing pattern of interference and cover-ups. The recent refusal by the FBI to allow Congress access to Hunter’s laptop becomes yet another instance in a series of actions fueling suspicions of corruption within the DOJ.
