  • Was possibly complicit in having a surveillance video storage room "accidentally" flooded in a failed attempt to cover up crimes with classified documents (the FBI recovered incriminating video anyways), or it is a total coincidence that a maintenance worker -- not just any worker but one who previously helped Trump's aide move boxes with classified documents -- would be careless enough to drain a pool damaging a room at a $200k initiation fee resort that contained additional videos the FBI had an active subpoena for
    Staff Notes: It could actually be a coincidence, but how does a worker make such an egregious mistake at such an expensive resort? And of all the rooms to be flooded, it's the surveillance storage room. And also, right during when the FBI was actively looking to get more videos presumably as they found additional new dates to subpoena video footage from. And the same worker previously helped Trump's aide move boxes with classified documents.
