Last month Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago bunker was subjected to a search by the FBI. They had a lawful warrant to seek highly sensitive national security materials that Trump had taken illegally from the White House. He later refused to return the documents, hundreds of which were classified Top Secret, even after being subpoenaed.
Trump made numerous false, bizarre, and often contradictory explanations for the documents being hoarded at his resort/home. He lied about having them, accused the FBI of planting them, and insisted that they were all unclassified by magic.
In the weeks since the search, the prospects of Trump being indicted have intensified. So much so that Trump, out of desperation and fear, recently made a thinly veiled threat if an indictment were to be handed down. After returning to the scene of the crime, he told right-wing radio talker, Hugh Hewitt that…
“I don’t think the people are going to stand for it. […] But I think if it happened, I think you’d have problems in this country the likes of which perhaps we’ve never seen before. I don’t think the people of the United States would stand for it. […] I think they’d have big problems, big problems. I just don’t think they’d stand for it. They will not, they will not sit still and stand for this ultimate of hoaxes.”

Trump’s threat did not sit well with his niece, Mary Trump. On her YouTube program, Ms. Trump put her uncle’s threat in an entirely different perspective, saying that…
“Donald said recently that there will be ‘big problems’ if he’s indicted, and he’s right. There will be big problems. for him. I know that he was in his not-too-subtle way, threatening the rest of us with the violence of his insane followers. But, you know that’s not going to happen. There is not going to be some mass uprising to protest the fact that Donald finally for once in his life is being held accountable. The real problem is that we’re probably going to run out of beer.”
It’s hard to dispute Ms. Trump’s analysis. If there is anything wrong with it, it’s that she may be missing that we would simultaneously run out of champagne, as millions of Americans spontaneously celebrate Trump being brought to justice. Ms. Trump went on to say that…
“By the way, he stole hundreds of highly classified top secret documents that belonged to America. So maybe we should indict him, charge him, convict him, and imprison him.”
Yeah, maybe so. And the sooner the better.
