Full Send Podcast Elon Musk says he fell under a government microscope after smoking weed with Joe Rogan ... claiming the feds randomly drug tested him. The world's richest man sat down for a podcast Tuesday with the Nelk Boys and John Shahidi , recalling the backlash he got from Uncle Sam over what he says was one measly rip from a blunt while on Rogan's show. Joe Rogan Experience Remember, Elon blazed it up with Joe back in September 2018, sparking up on camera while talking about Tesla's plans for an airplane. The video went viral and then Tesla's stock briefly plummeted on the heels of the smoke sesh. Elon says the federal response was "pretty nutty" ... explaining the problem is ganja is still illegal federally, and because he runs SpaceX -- which holds lucrative government contracts -- the feds tested him for a range of illicit drugs.

Donald Trump is worried he may have a rat — or multiple rats — in his midst. He’s wondering if his phones are tapped, or even if one of his buddies could be “wearing a wire.” As the federal and state investigations into Trump and his orbit swell , so have the former president’s suspicions, according to two sources familiar with the matter and another two people close to the twice-impeached former Oval Office occupant. This summer, Trump has asked close associates if they think his communications are being monitored by the feds, or — per his phrasing — “by Biden.” As a source close to Trump describes it to Rolling Stone : “He has asked me and others, ‘Do you think our phones are tapped?’ Given the sheer volume of investigations going on into the [former] president, I do not think he’s assuming anything is outside the realm of possibility.” The source adds, “He’s talked about this seriously [in the past few months], but I know of one time when he made a joke that … [Read more...] about With Feds Circling, Trump Asks Allies: Who’s ‘Wearing a Wire’?
Federal agents have executed a search of Donald Trump ’s property at Mar-a-Lago . The former president broke the news himself in a statement, decrying that his “beautiful home” was “occupied by a large group of FBI agents.” Trump — who is under congressional investigation by the Jan. 6 committee, which has laid out a devastating case that he knowingly unleashed violence on the U.S. Capitol in a final, desperate bid to cling to power following an election he knew he lost — claimed to be the victim of “lawlessness” and “political persecution” by “Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024.” The federal raid of the former president, which indeed appears to be unprecedented, surprised Trump in its thoroughness. “They even broke into my safe!” the former president lamented. Trump’s team is also none too pleased. People close to the ex-president reacted with a mix of horror, fear, and anger. Four sources close to Trump or who still work for … [Read more...] about Trump Says the Feds Raided Mar-a-Lago: ‘They Even Broke Into My Safe!’
Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.), one of Donald Trump’s most loyal supporters in Congress, says federal authorities seized his phone on Tuesday, a day after the FBI raided the former president’s Mar-a-Lago estate . Perry’s office later reiterated to Rolling Stone that the FBI seized the congressman’s phone Tuesday morning. “This morning, while traveling with my family, three FBI agents visited me and seized my cell phone,” Perry told Fox News . “They made no attempt to contact my lawyer, who would have made arrangements for them to have my phone if that was their wish. I’m outraged — though not surprised — that the FBI under the direction of Merrick Garland’s DOJ, would seize the phone of a sitting member of Congress. My phone contains info about my legislative and political activities, and personal/private discussions with my wife, family, constituents, and friends. None of this is the government’s business.” It’s unclear why Perry’s phone was allegedly seized, or if it is in … [Read more...] about MAGA Lawmaker Who Tried to Overturn Election Says the Feds Seized His Phone
The U.S. Department of Justice has charged a member of Iran ’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) in connection with an alleged assassination plot against former Trump National Security Adviser John Bolton . Axios reported later on Wednesday that former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has been informed that he was a second target of the alleged plot. According to prosecutors , Iranian national and IRGC member Shahram Poursafi offered $300,000 to hire someone to “eliminate” Bolton, who while in the Trump administration helped lead an effort to exert “maximum pressure” against Iran in the form of sanctions and threats for its alleged support of terrorism. Prosecutors said Poursafi contacted a person whom the Justice Department referred to as a “confidential human source” and offered first $250,000, then $300,000 to kill Bolton. Poursafi also mentioned he had another “job” for the source and would pay $1 million for it. The other job, according to Axios, was killing … [Read more...] about Feds Charge Iranian Operative in Plot to Assassinate Former Trump Officials

DENVER, COLORADO — Dr. Larry Rudolph was always going to testify for himself. His lawyer wanted him to, but didn’t want Larry to appear rehearsed, like in the hokey TV ads for his dental practice back in Pittsburgh. His girlfriend, Lori Milliron, tells Rolling Stone she agreed that Larry should take control of what she calls a nearly six-year “witch hunt” by the FBI and federal prosecutors. “When I was still able to talk to him on the phone, before I was arrested,” she says, “I told him, ‘You need to get on the stand and tell your story.’ He was like, ‘I dunno.’” But the feds were recording last winter’s prison calls between the defendant and his hygienist, turned mistress, turned business partner, turned partner in crime. If Larry, a figure cut from Trumpian cloth, was going to beat the charges — that he killed his wife on safari in Africa, so that he could spend millions in life-insurance payouts to live large with Lori — then his legal strategy would require overcoming the … [Read more...] about ‘Worse Than the O.J.
