Former President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Jenna Ellis claimed on Sunday morning's edition of Newsmax's Wake Up America that the Federal Bureau of Investigation executed a search warrant at Trump's Mar-a-Lago retreat in Palm Beach, Florida on Monday, August 8th because Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) lost her primary race to Trump-backed challenger Harriet Hageman.

In fact the Cheney-Hageman contest occurred on Tuesday, August 16th, more than a week after the FBI recovered hundreds of extremely sensitive documents from Trump's estate.

"This is yet another next thing in the line of what the Democrats are targeting President Trump with," Ellis, a constitutional law attorney, griped without providing any supporting evidence.


"Look, we're not hearing anything about January 6 anymore," Ellis proclaimed. "The timing of this is so suspicious because right after Liz Cheney loses her primary, and everything about the January 6 Committee is going away, now this raid happens."

Cheney is the vice-chair of the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol, which revealed its findings in eight public hearings over the summer. While future proceedings have not yet been scheduled, the bipartisan panel is continuing its probe into Trump's role in the deadly insurrection.

Ellis added that the Justice Department's criminal pursuit of Trump "is the next mantra. This is the next thing that [Rep.] Eric Swalwell [D-CA] is tweeting, saying, 'the walls are closing in.'"

Well, the big news is that after a couple of days of even more expert analysis, nothing’s going to save us. Certainly not the Supreme Court. They’re in the tank for Donald Trump, full stop. It doesn’t matter which way they will eventually rule on his claim of absolute immunity, hell, it doesn’t even matter whether they’ll rule at all. They’re going to toss the 14th Amendment’s insurrectionist ban in the garbage, and then they’re going to dilly dally until presidential immunity is a moot point.

Gun Violence

A bill that will allow Louisiana residents to carry a concealed firearm without a permit is headed to the desk of Republican Gov. Jeff Landry. The bill would also remove current requirements for new gun owners to have their fingerprints taken and attend a training course on firearm safety. Landry has already indicated he intends to sign this bill into law.
