Former President Donald Trump Claims He Can Declassify Top Secret Documents Just Thinking About It

Donald Trump took the stage Friday for his final campaign-style rally of 2022, this time in Wilmington, North Carolina.

The former president will be joined at the event by U.S. Representative Ted Budd, who is running for the U.S. Senate to fill Richard Burr’s seat.

Prior to the rally, Mr Trump appeared to be falling further into QAnon’s world after reposting a video on his own Truth Social network featuring images and slogans related to the fringe conspiracy.

Scenes including a US Capitol building with lightning bolts and the words “It’s getting biblical,” as well as the phrase “prepare for the storm,” were featured below the images along with “Q” symbols. Mr Trump has previously denied knowledge of the conspiracy, despite many of his supporters and Capitol rioters being associated with it.

In other news, Mr. Trump’s attorneys have been ordered to somehow say whether they really believe the FBI has placed incriminating evidence in the documents seized from Mr. Trump’s home — or that the former president is just bluffing to save face.

Trump PAC raises $40 in August

Donald Trump’s super PAC raised just $40 in the month of August, a sign that its name doesn’t have the fundraising it once did.

Along with the low August numbers, the Make America Great Again, Again! super PAC only raised $351,000 in July and nothing in June. In comparison, in the last fundraising quarter of last year, the super PAC raised $4 million to $5 million.

As Eric Garcia explains that the numbers come as Save America’s political action committee foots the bill for Mr. Trump’s legal fees, which last month rose to a reported $3.8 million that is likely to grow.
