The battle between Donald Trump and the DOJ continues this week, as the former President continues to insist that the documents removed from his Florida home were declassified properly before transport.
On Tuesday night, the Justice Department released a filing that suggested otherwise, including photographs taken at Mar-a-Lago, purportedly showing “Top Secret” and “SCI” documents on the floor of an undisclosed room.
This set Trump off over on Truth Social, where he not only railed against the agency, but also dipped into the Qanon conspiracy theory in a major way.
While Trump has in the past promoted QAnon-inspired accounts and theories, the posts on his Truth Social account were his most explicit, unobscured, QAnon-promoting and QAnon-baiting posts to date.
In one, he reposted the QAnon slogan — “Where We Go One We Go All.” In another, he re-posted a 2017 message from “Q” that’s critical of the intelligence community. The QAnon conspiracy theory was built around Q, an anonymous account that posts periodically on 8kun, often with vague or symbolic language that is then interpreted by followers.
On forums frequented by Trump followers, there appeared to be a fervor over the posts, as it showed Trump fully leaning into the Q community.
Just a day earlier, Trump had insisted that he either be reinstated as President or that there be a 2020 election “re-do”, on account of revelations regarding Facebook’s alleged electoral interference that came at the behest of the FBI.
