Trump Circus

Jun 12, 2023

Former President Trump faces indictment on Tuesday, June 13, that he withheld classified documents when first the Archives, and then the FBI, asked for them back from his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida.

Apparently some officials at high levels of government are worried that the wrong people could find out classified secrets about U.S. enemies and allies, what the U.S. government really thinks about leaders, or what the U.S. government really wants to do—all the things the population never hears about until much later.

Remember the Iraq war and the Bush administration’s lies about “weapons of mass destruction"? The Bush administration was determined to go to war with Saddam Hussein and too bad if the population did not like the idea, nor want to pay for it in money and soldiers’ lives.

Maybe the Democratic Party leaders are happy that indictments against Trump could in some way upset his election next year. Maybe some among Republican Party leaders would like to see Trump not able to win the election next year as well. But this circus is not about justice nor about the population having democratic choices during elections. (We never do!)
