    Former President Donald Trump Friday dismissed as a "hoax" a report that the FBI raided his Mar-a-Lago mansion in a hunt for documents containing nuclear weapons secrets.

    The bombshell claim was reported by The Washington Post, citing unnamed sources, just hours after Attorney General Merrick Garland said he had personally signed off on the search warrant executed Monday at Trump's Florida home.

    "Nuclear weapons issue is a Hoax, just like Russia, Russia, Russia was a Hoax, two Impeachments were a Hoax, the Mueller investigation was a Hoax, and much more," Trump posted on Truth Social Friday morning. "Same sleazy people involved. Why wouldn't the FBI allow the inspection of areas at Mar-a-Lago with our lawyer's [sic], or others, present. Made them wait outside in the heat, wouldn't let them get even close - said "ABSOLUTELY NOT." Planting information anyone? Reminds me of a Christofer [sic] Steele Dossier!"

    The Washington Post's report did not offer details on whether the alleged documents were about U.S. nuclear weapons or those of a foreign nation, and they did not disclose what was recovered during the search.

    "If that is true, it would suggest that material residing unlawfully at Mar-a-Lago may have been classified at the highest classification level," said David Laufman, the former chief of the Justice Department's counterintelligence section, which investigates leaks of classified information. "If the FBI and the Department of Justice believed there were top secret materials still at Mar-a-Lago, that would lend itself to greater 'hair-on-fire' motivation to recover that material as quickly as possible."

    Garland said during a press conference Thursday afternoon that he personally approved the search and that the Justice Department was moving to unseal the warrant. However, the probable cause affidavit sworn by DOJ lawyers may not be made public and the warrant itself is likely to contain redactions.

    "I personally approved the decision to seek a search warrant in this matter," Garland later added. "Second, the Department does not take such a decision lightly. Where possible, it is standard practice to seek less intrusive means as an alternative to a search and to narrowly scope any search that is undertaken."

    Trump responded to Garland's remarks by saying that the FBI raid was not needed because his legal team had been cooperating with the Justice Department.

With Roe v Wade (originated in 1973) overturned by the US Supreme Court, thereby allowing decisions on abortion legislation completely returned to the states: Where do you find your position on such a "Life and Death" issue for the American People?
  Yes, I approve of the US Supreme Court's decision to reinstate this "medical" issue back to the states' legislative responsibility to regulate.
  No, I believe that every woman should have complete access to abortion on demand.
  This issue is far beyond my intellectual capacity to understand.

With respect to the leaked opinion not yet written for ratification regarding the U.S. Supreme Court's revisiting the original decision of Roe v Wade, whence now nonstop protests have erupted in neighborhoods where U.S. Supreme Court justices live, exhibiting the firm intent to intimidate these officers of the highest court in the land: What action should the federal authorities take?
  Do nothing ... Protests are a fixture of a free society.
  Enforce the law ... Federal codes exist to prohibit any intimidation through the pubic harassment of federal judges, especially Supreme Court justices.
  I have no idea, however, northern Virginia School Board Members must be shielded from protests at all costs.
