Liberal To Republican Primary Voters: “Your Votes Don’t Count!”
Moon of Alabama, Aug 18 2022

In the Republican primaries in Wyoming anti-Trump member of the house Liz Cheney lost by a large margin to pro-Trump candidate Harriet Hageman:

This comes as a disappointment for Democrats who favored the ultra-belligerent Cheney solely for her anti-Trump position. It also leads to utterly nonsensical headlines:

This comes a week after FBI agents from the same division that had investigated the fake ‘Russiagate’ raided Trump’s home in Florida. The real reason for that unseemly raid were not some government documents Trump had withheld from the National Archive but to find documents Trump was thought to have that would have further expose the ‘Russiagate’ fraud:

The FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago last Monday was specifically intended to recover Donald Trump’s personal “stash” of hidden documents, two high-level US intelligence officials tell Newsweek. To justify the unprecedented raid on a former president’s residence and protect the source who revealed the existence of Trump’s private hoard, agents went into Trump’s residence on the pretext that they were seeking all government documents, says one official who has been involved in the investigation. But the true target was this private stash, which Justice Dept officials feared Donald Trump might weaponize. The sought-after documents deal with a variety of intelligence matters of interest to the former president, the officials suggest, including material that Trump apparently thought would exonerate him of any claims of Russian collusion in 2016 or any other election-related charges. It wasn’t the subject matter per se that was of interest to Justice as it was fear that Trump might “weaponize” the information, including for personal gain, the official says. One former Trump official tells Newsweek: “Trump was particularly interested in matters related to the Russia hoax and the wrong-doings of the deep state. I think he felt, and I agree, that these are facts that the American people need to know.” The official says Trump may have been planning to use them as part of a 2024 run for the presidency.

The author of the above is William M Arkin, who has a mixed record of reporting which varies between original scoops and illogical narratives. The piece above seems to be from the first category.
