While the DOJ and FBI refuse to disclose the reason for the raid on President Donald J. Trump’s Florida property on Monday, Americans are forced to rely on’media leaks’ or media’s hidden sources to learn what the security forces were searching for and why.
On Thursday evening, rumors circulated that the FBI was hunting for evidence that Trump had leaked information concerning nuclear weapons.
Michael Tracey covered the WAPO Leaks in a report.
Leaks to WaPo now claim "documents relating to nuclear weapons" were "sought" at Mar-a-Lago. No word on whether they were recovered. Taking this story at face value, the DOJ decided to wait a year and a half before tracking down the USA's most closely guarded nuclear secrets?

The purported disclosures occurred after Attorney General Merrick Garland’s odd news conference, in which he claimed to have personally authorized the Florida raid but mentioned nothing about what he was searching for at Trump’s residence and why.
The only source of information the American public had about the historical scandal was media leaks, since Garland gave no openness whatsoever.
As some anticipated, the raid on Trump’s residence has evolved into a conversation about his execution.
And bizarrely, former CIA director Michael Hayden posted a social media post that appeared to advocate the death of nuclear secrets leakers.
Based on his social media activities from Friday morning, when he uploaded this meme, Hayden appears to have a storyline in mind.

77-year-old Hayden is a friend of the radical Barack Obama, and he is a retired four-star general of the United States Air Force who served as Director of the National Security Agency, Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence, and Director of the Central Intelligence Agency.
Hayden retweeted and referenced a post by historian Michael Beschloss, who shared a photo of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg with the caption, “Rosenbergs were convicted for giving U.S. nuclear secrets to Moscow, and were executed June 1953:”
Thursday night, Hayden tweeted, “Sounds about right.”

Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were American citizens who were convicted of espionage for the Soviet Union in 1951. The pair offered top-secret material, which included vital blueprints for nuclear weapons. In 1953, they were executed.
Newsmax stated that “Hayden’s comment came three days after FBI agents raided the Florida home of former President Donald Trump.”
More on this story via The Republic Brief:
Media reports have indicated that Monday’s action took place likely after an informant provided the Justice Department with information that confidential documents remained at the former president’s Florida residence.
If true, that would be a violation of the Presidential Records Act, and if charged and convicted, Trump would be ineligible to serve in the federal office again. CONTINUE READING…
