News notes of just crazy irony…
…the FBI search of Donald Trump’s residence at Mar-al-Lago was directed by an FBI Director that he nominated, saying “He will make us all proud…we will have great FBI Director.”
More, one of the laws that Trump is being investigated over is one that he signed into law in January 2018. In response to Hillary’s mishandling classified information, then President Trump signed into law a measure to make it a felony to unlawfully retain or conceal any classified information. AND that law also said that any person convicted would be removed from office and be “disqualified from holding any office under the United States.”
The pertinent sections read:
(a)Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
(b) Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term “office” does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States.
