‘Red Flags’ From Tuesday’s Georgia Primary Show Marjorie Taylor Greene Could Lose In November

Even though she easily won the Republican primary in Georgia yesterday, there are some major “red flags” that suggest Georgia GOP Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is vulnerable and could well lose in November’s general election.

That’s what noted political experts told Newsweek, noting that if Greene faces a challenge from a Democrat who can raise the necessary campaign funds the controversial Republican could find herself looking for work in 2025.

 T.J. McCormack, a Republican strategist and commentator, “Given Greene’s recent bizarre behavior, this might have been an opportunity to steal a win.”

Among the biggest concerns for Greene are her campaign finance reports, which show that she doesn’t have as much cash on hand as an incumbent should this close to November.

Denny Salas, a political strategist and senior vice president at New York-based Gotham Government Relations, said there are indeed some “red flags” for Greene, who has raised $5 million but only has about $1 million left with six months until the election.

“Her high spending rate, or ‘burn rate,’ could allow a Democratic opponent to defeat her in November’s general election,” Salas said. “While raising $5 million is impressive, blowing through most of it already is concerning.

“So, while not having any Republican opponents made her primary easy, her massive campaign spending suggests she may be vulnerable if Democrats find a well-funded candidate to run against her.”

Former president Donald Trump could also wind up dragging down Greene and other Republicans seeking reelection. Or vice versa, Jay Oliver, LI News radio host and political commentator warned.

“Republicans are in a tough spot whether to go against her with supporter Donald Trump by her side or join other Democrats with total condemnation.”
“In a Republican redrawn district to favor the GOP, how much control of this ‘loose cannon’ will be meaningful to help Trump in November? That will be the key.”

Greene’s latest bizarre accusation is that President Joe Biden and the Justice Department wanted to assassinate Trump when they raided his Mar-a-Lago resort to search for classified documents he failed to return upon leaving the White House.

According to Greene, the fact that FBI agents had the authorization to use lethal force during the raid is proof that Biden wanted Trump eliminated, The Independent reports.

“The Biden DOJ and FBI were planning to assassinate [president] Trump and gave the green light,” the Georgia representative wrote on X Tuesday evening.

The FBI quickly promptly swatted down Greene’s absurd conspiracy theory in an official statement.

“The FBI followed standard protocol in this search as we do for all search warrants, which includes a standard policy statement limiting the use of deadly force,” the statement read.

“No one ordered additional steps to be taken and there was no departure from the norm in this matter,” it added.

What will become of Greene? That remains unclear, but the entire county would be better off if she goes down to defeat come November. After all, we already have enough morons in Congress.

Legal Expert: Hush Money Jurors Just Gave A Clue They Believe Cohen Instead Of Trump

At least six of the twelve jurors who will decide whether or not former president Donald Trump falsified business records and interfered in the 2016 election clearly believe his former attorney, Michael Cohen, and showed that during testimony on Tuesday, according to CNN legal analyst Norm Eisen.

“I was watching the jury and at different points in Cohen’s testimony, you had the jury [who] doesn’t always do this. I counted six jurors who were nodding or smiling, or agreeing with Cohen at one point in his testimony,” Eisen noted.

“It’s like a presidential debate: both sides want to suppress expectations and the DA did that brilliantly in setting this moment.”

Eisen later expanded on his televised comments in an op-ed for CNN.

“At that moment and at multiple points during the day, I saw something I had not seen before with any witness in this trial: Cohen was talking directly to the jury, and all the jurors were looking at and listening to him. It seemed to me that he had established a genuine human bond with the jury over the course of his lengthy direct examination.”

With the defense continuing to cross-examine Cohen this morning, Eisen also had some thoughts regarding today’s courtroom fireworks.

Jim Jordan Gets His A*s Handed To Him At Hearing For Defending ‘Degenerate Spoiled Brat’ Trump

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) was thoroughly humiliated at a hearing of the House Judiciary Committee when Democratic Congresswoman Stacey Plaskett (VI) accused him of holding a hearing on the “weaponization” of government by the Biden administration for one purpose: To protect failed former president Donald Trump from his dozens of alleged crimes.

“Why are we back this time?” Plasket asked. “We’re here because former President Trump is on trial in New York. That’s why we’re here.”

“On Monday and Tuesday of this week, his former attorney Michael Cohen delivered devastating testimony implicating former President Trump in a hush money payment scheme,” she continued. “We all know that the former president exacts loyalty from all of his followers and especially GOP officials and those that work for him. Blind loyalty.”

Plaskett also mocked Republicans who “hightailed it to New York City to show him that they are with him.”

“And Trump, in turn, demands that every Republican official serve him like the incorrigible, degenerate, spoiled brat that he is and use their positions to aid his criminal defense.”

The congresswoman accused Jordan of holding the hearing to placate right-wing media figures such as Fox’s Maria Bartiromo and ex-Trump administration adviser Steve Bannon, who now hosts a podcast.

“We’re here at the beck and call of Trump fanatics and talking heads on cable and internet talk shows in the MAGA world who, like Bartiromo and Bannon, have goaded this committee to act.”

Of course, the congresswoman is absolutely right. Jordan and his ilk are desperate to cover Trump’s tracks and divert attention away from the 88 criminal charges he’s facing for allegedly interfering in the 2020 election, inciting an insurrection, and stealing classified documents.

But those who try and excuse the depraved acts of a lifetime criminal like Trump are in many ways just as guilty as he is and deserve to be voted out of office and charged for their crimes, too.

Donald Trump’s New York Trial Is Already Starting To Destroy His 2024 Campaign

As failed former president Donald Trump’s hush money trial continues to hang over him like a wet blanket, court proceedings are also “crippling” his bid for a second term in the White House, according to a report from the Daily Beast, which notes the trial has become a “giant time-suck” for the disgraced ex-head of state.

For example, on Tuesday Trump was scheduled to appear at a major fundraising event in Texas that was supposed to raise millions for 2024 GOP House candidates, but he had to cancel because he was in court all day.

Alex Conant, a GOP strategist and a top aide on Marco Rubio’s 2016 campaign, says Trump’s absence on the campaign trail could prove devasting for both him and Republicans who will be on the ticket in November.

“He could be raising six, seven figures pretty regularly at major-dollar events around the country at this point,” Conant said. “That’s literally what Biden is doing. So Trump’s fundraisers are probably frustrated that because he’s in New York, they can’t schedule that stuff.”

“The most valuable commodity in any campaign is the candidate’s time,” Conant added. “It’s the only thing you can’t get more of. And the fact that he’s going to have to spend weeks in the courtroom is time his campaign isn’t going to get back.”

For their part, members of Trump’s campaign insist that the New York trial will eventually backfire on Democrats and President Joe Biden, though their reasoning sounds like little more than wishful thinking, with one Trump campaign consultant remarking, “We’re only at day three now, and I think this is gonna have a backfiring effect on Democrats, I really do. They are interfering with Trump’s ability to get on his plane and go to Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina, Georgia.”

And yet that so-called “interfering” is indeed keeping Trump off the campaign trail and unable to effectively raise desperately needed donations, where Biden already holds a commanding lead.

At the end of the day, Conant reiterates, time is the most precious thing any candidate has, and every day Trump spends in court puts him further behind the incumbent Biden.

Time is running out for Trump everywhere he looks as he’s finally having to confront the fact that he may be found guilty and sentenced to prison. Meanwhile, his 2024 campaign is stuck in neutral and starting to fade in both the polls and relevance.

Former Prosecutor: FBI May Raid Trump Tower After Latest Revelations From Witness

FBI agents could well be on the verge of raiding Trump Tower in New York after the latest revelations from a witness that former president Donald Trump moved classified documents to his Manhattan skyscraper.

Newsweek reports that Neama Rahmani noted a Tuesday court filing suggesting that Trump kept presidential records at Trump Tower and his estate in Bedminster, New Jersey, may leave federal authorities with no other option other than a thorough search of the facilities.

“Prosecutors won’t know if classified documents still remain at Trump’s other homes unless they execute search warrants there,” Rahami explained.

Rahami added that she doesn’t think special prosecutor Jack Smith will take such an action this close to the election, but “that possibility exists, especially because Trump has failed to comply with lawfully issued subpoenas in the past.”

The court filing seems to confirm information provided to federal investigators by Trump’s former valet, Brian Butler, who says he helped the ex-president load boxes of documents onto the former president’s private plane in Florida which were then taken to New Jersey and New York.

“Butler told CNN last month that the plane was loaded on June 3, 2022, which was the same day Trump and his lawyer met with the Justice Department at Mar-a-Lago to discuss the missing classified documents.

“Butler said he later realized that the white boxes of documents were at the center of the federal indictment against Trump.”

The FBI raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach in August of 2022 to retrieve classified information that was stored there in direct violation of U.S. law. Trump is now facing charges for allegedly possessing classified documents and obstructing investigators who attempted to locate them.

If convicted for illegally taking the documents, Trump faces 10 years in prison on each of the counts he’s charged with.
