FBI search warrant reveals agents seized top-secret documents in raid of Trump’s home

FBI seized multiple sets of documents marked top secret from former President Donald Trump’s Florida resort home, Mar-a-Lago, when agents raided it Monday, according to a search warrant unsealed Friday.

The warrant directed agents to seize “all physical documents and records constituting evidence, contraband, fruits of crime, or other items illegally possessed” in violation of three laws related to handling of government documents.

The warrant indicates that statutes relating to espionage and obstruction of justice are the foundation for the search. Convictions under these statutes can bring fines or prison sentences.

One of the statutes, which relates to removing or destroying government records, includes a punishment of being “disqualified from holding any office under the United States,” according to the text of the law.

None of the three statutes — Title 18 of the United States Code, Sections 7931519 and 2071 — hinge on whether the documents in question were classified.

But the warrant left out many details about the materials seized — and the government’s motivation for the shocking raid, believed to be the first search of a former president’s home. “This is really uncharted territory,” Richard Serafini, a criminal defense attorney and former Department of Justice trial lawyer, said in an interview regarding the trump raid.

You are like papa

This Stranger Things soundbite is hilariously popular right now.

You Are Like Papa is a line said by the Stranger Things character Eleven as she accuses her adoptive father Jim Hopper of lying to her just like Dr. Brenner, aka Papa, did during her childhood.

How to use it: Type a “you just can’t do…” phrase, usually this is used as a reprimand shot. Then show the subject doing or attempting that exact thing when the sound says “you are like papa” Play around with cuts and be dramatic to play off the silliness of the whole thing. Watch these examples below.
