    FBI affidavit released - detailing the type of documents kept at Mar-a-Lago - not that it will make any difference for Trump supporters.

    What is the French term for pee-pee-tape?

    Specifically, Trump has bragged to some of his closest associates — both during and after his time in the White House — that he knew illicit details about the love life of French President Emmanuel Macron, two people with knowledge of the matter tell Rolling Stone. And the former president even claimed that he learned about some of this dirt through “intelligence” he had seen or been briefed on, these sources say.

    It’s not clear whether the Macron-related document the FBI seized during the raid had anything at all to do with the French president’s personal life. Nor is it clear whether the information on Macron seized from Mar-a-Lago is derived from U.S. intelligence collection or even classified.

    But the mere revelation of its existence triggered a trans-Atlantic freakout, according to two other sources familiar with the situation.

    Do not conflate:
    1) the person
    2) the system

    That is, you can hate Trump and still also hate the lines that the raid has crossed.

    If you think the ends justify the means, you need to

    Say why.

    If he was in possession of potentially harmful documents that he should not have had then to protect the people of America the raid was justified. Keeping top secret documents at home after you have left your job seems to me where the line was crossed.

    A former president is not allowed to keep secret documents in his house after he left his job. It's as simple as that. No line has been crossed. The FBI has done exactly what it is supposed to be doing, and what it would do with any other person on US soil.

    I don't think the term "no one is above the law" exempts anyone. Apparently you do.

    If I got fired from a job and then took confidential company documents home, should I be busted?

    You said the raid crossed the line. What line?

    Say why?
