I blame Alex Jones
Two people briefed on the classified documents that investigators believe remained at Mar-a-Lago indicated that they were so sensitive in nature, and related to national security, that the Justice Department had to act.
Some senior Republicans have been warned by allies of Mr. Trump not to continue to be aggressive in criticizing the Justice Department and the F.B.I. over the matter because it is possible that more damaging information related to the search will become public.
The evidence given for this supposed break is that Trump attacked the Iraq war when he was a candidate and decided against attacking Iran in response to the downing of a U.S. drone. These are some very slender reeds on which to base such a sweeping claim about Trump’s foreign policy. As anyone even remotely familiar with Trump’s record knows, the idea that he broke with conventional movement conservative and Republican foreign policy is nonsense. It is something that some Trumpists tell themselves to make their ongoing support for a corrupt buffoon seem defensible in their own minds. The reality is that he mostly appointed Republican hard-liners to run his foreign policy, and he then presided over four years of foreign policy failures because he usually did what those hard-liners wanted. Another Trump administration would likely deliver more of the same reckless and destructive policies, and there should be no illusions about that.Only Trump has broken from the disastrous foreign policy championed by the conservative movement.
