One was expired, one a special one for presidents, and one his current valid passport. Anyway, the FBI took them and Newsweek is discussing trump being a flight risk.
The way things are starting to gel is trump may actually have been compromising US intelligence and weapons information. And of course Russia has been mentioned.
So for a moment consider what if trump’s presidency was all part of a plot by Putin to weaken the US and NATO. Puts everything he and those in his circle did in a new light, doesn’t it?
EDIT - This appears to have just been procedural. At least for now. It was a consequence of the search warrant and just grabbing presidential records. So just noise for now. My bet is we see the headline again, later, though.
Here is what happened with the passports. As usual it was convoluted... and overplayed, sigh. https://www.emptywheel.net/2022/08/16/trumps-latest-tirade-proves-any-temporary-restraining-order-may-come-too-late/

The 3 safe bet laws that tRUMP will be charged with if the DOJ is doing their job... because he has already broken them by mishandling, removing and keeping in possession. More can be added as the investigation continues. See the info here: https://www.sorryantivaxxer.com/forum/main/comment/3b650290-7101-480e-8318-e50ba44afb58?postId=62f675257f5cb30012d463e6
I read The Palmer Report for about a year after the 2016 disaster. It soon became perfectly obvious that Trump was beholden to Putin, and was quite OK with it. Obvious that he was working for only his own personal interests, even if that meant selling out America.
Nobody had the authority or will to challenge him. I still don't understand why the Mueller investigation led nowhere.
It was so depressing I mostly gave up following the details.
I'm confused about the number of boxes taken during the search. First news was 12 or 14 boxes, then other larger numbers 'til last night I heard 27 boxes. The more, the better.
you mean, everyone is finally figuring out that Trump was/is a spy/asset? What took them so fucking long?
He's been a traitor the entire time he was in the WH.
I nailed him over 6 years ago.
And a bunch of pro-trump, anti-FBI protesters talked themselves out of protesting saying it was a trap…
And, get a load of what the pretend righteous melon had to say about protecting classified documents back in 2016… Nobody is above the law…
I just came here to post that news. Noooooo, Crooked Donnie could not possibly be a flight risk. 🤣
And now trump is threatening the country. It would be a shame if something happened to your country…
“Trump has denounced the FBI several times in the last week, including in a Sunday post on Truth Social in which he said the bureau "has a long and unrelenting history of being corrupt." Another Sunday Truth Social post by Trump suggested "Radical Left Democrats" have a "complete and total stranglehold" over the DOJ and the FBI.”
However, Huffington Post gives some perspective…
“For all his accusations of the FBI investigating him for political reasons, Trump has not mentioned that FBI director Christopher Wray is a Republican, that he appointed Wray to his post and that Senate Republicans unanimously voted to confirm him.”
Remember 2018 when dRumph & Putin met privately for 2 hours?
