There is a lot about the government’s story over the FBI raid of Donald Trump’s Florida home that “doesn’t stack up”, Sky News host James Morrow says.
“We are being asked to believe that government officials knew Trump was holding on to top secret material, maybe including stuff about nuclear weapons, in his basement for a year and a half,” Mr Morrow said.
“We also know the government actually spent time looking at and retrieving other documents some months ago.
“Then decided now … to go in with a full complement of FBI officers, who did not let Trump’s lawyers observe the search, while they even rummaged through even his wife’s walk-in closet.
“As if he’d snuck the launch codes into a pair of her Jimmy Choo’s.”
Mr Morrow said if the former US president did indeed have top secret nuclear material, then police would have been “knocking on his door” much sooner.
“Instead, though, this looks like a political stunt organised by Attorney-General Merrick Garland whose nomination for the Supreme Court Trump pulled when he came to power.”
