It’s no secret that President Trump hasn’t always gotten along with the FBI. Now, a new announcement seems to reveal that they’re at it again, this time trying to push the idea that his Mar-a-Lago resort is a hotbed of espionage.
The Department is so worried about Trump’s resort that they are currently investigating just how far this alleged vulnerability goes — even though there doesn’t seem to be any proof of an issue.
Could this threat be real…
Or is this just another example of the FBI trying to undermine the President?
It might be both.
- News broke last week identifying that a Chinese national by the name of Yujing Zhang was arrested at Mar-a-Lago. Allegedly, she was carrying two passports, four cellphones and a malware-ridden thumb drive.
- It’s undeniable that Zhang was up to no good. After all, no one carries that many passports in the spirit of being a good, law-abiding citizen. But espionage? There’s absolutely no proof there’s any connection between Zhang and the President at all.
- US News also reported that Trump wasn’t even at the resort at the time of Zhang’s arrest. Instead, he was playing golf at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach. Several of his family members, including Melania, were with him.
- The FBI is allegedly refusing to comment other than saying they are investigating the “equipment Trump uses” and the overall resort to see if any vulnerabilities exist. Allegedly, they are also working in tandem with the Secret Service to establish several secure areas for handling classified information during Trump’s visits.
- If all of this sounds rather sensible to you, that’s because it may very well BE sensible. But the rumor mill is already in action from the Left. They’re already trying to claim it’s proof the President only visits Mar-a-Lago to engage in some kind of espionage some nefarious plot to destroy the United States.
- Sound familiar? That’s because it is. Hard-left Liberals have been claiming that Trump’s trips to Mar-a-Lago are everything from a waste of taxpayer’s money to “too many vacations” to a flat-out scam since 2016.
- A few ridiculous comments even suggested that he might be working with the Chinese. They will latch onto anything, won’t they? Good grief!
- Still, it does seem like suspicious timing on the part of the FBI. Only a short time after Mueller finally closed the Russian collusion investigation, citing “no evidence,” Trump’s vacation spot is suddenly being investigated for espionage risks. And just like the Russian collusion investigation, there doesn’t seem to be any proof of espionage.
- In fact, that’s exactly who many believe is responsible for, well, colluding to get rid of President Trump by accusing him of collusion with Russia. Think about it…
- It was the FBI who opened up the Russian collusion investigation in the first place. Most of the “intel” they had on Trump was little more than hearsay and weakly-linked partial facts. A significant portion was “unverifiable,” in the Department’s own words.
- We know now, nearly two years later, that “evidence” like the Steele Dossier was all but falsified — tidbits of info spun by an oppositional research company to try and push the idea that Trump is somehow a con artist. Oh, and then there’s the issue that it may have been paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
- In Trump’s second year in office, it now makes sense to the sensible why the FBI suddenly launched an investigation into him right after firing James Coomey. The Federalist’s Senior Editor, Mollie Hemingway, sums it up best.
- “Using the completely lawful and constitutional firing of the bumbling Comey as pretext for opening a criminal investigation into the president is a grand abuse of power by the FBI. Attempting to overtake the authority to determine U.S. foreign policy from the lawfully determined president of the United States is a violation of the U.S. Constitution.”
So is this another example of the FBI trying to manipulate the public’s view of the President…or could this represent a legitimate risk? Tell us what you think. In the meantime, we’re waiting to see what the real evidence shows — and we’re sure it won’t point the finger at President Trump.
