Trump Brownshirt Indicted For Having Kiddie Porn, Explosives, And A Machine Gun
May 19, 2016

Remember when the Trump co-chair in New Hampshire was indicted for his participation in the Malheur Refuge takeover and the media all pretended it didn't happen?

Well, here's a Trump delegate, indicted for possession of child pornography, a machine gun, and explosives.

The Department of Justice reports that Maryland resident Caleb Bailey, age 30, was indicted after ATF agents were alerted to a package which had come open at a Maryland post office. Inside the package, inspectors found "119 rounds of reloaded .50 caliber cartridges with M48A1 incendiary projectiles, and 200 rounds of 14.5mm M183A1 spotting projectiles which contain an explosive charge."

The package was addressed to a person in Wisconsin whose name is not included in the indictment.

Here's more from the release.

According to court documents, on February 25 and March 3, 2016, the U.S. Postal Service customer service received calls from a person who identified himself by a false name in the first call, and then identified himself as Caleb Bailey in the second call. The caller provided the tracking number for the package recovered by ATF, and advised that the package had not yet been delivered. Neither Bailey nor the individual to whom the package was addressed had a federal explosives license to transport the explosives contained in the package.

After those calls, Bailey failed to appear at the Post Office at scheduled times to meet with law enforcement, and was arrested instead.

Caleb Bailey is listed on the Maryland Department of Elections site as a delegate for Donald Trump.

This is how fascism comes to America, folks. In packages of explosives and an incendiary protofascist as the Republican nominee.

Update: The LA Times reports that he was removed as a delegate "after the child pornography indictment." I guess the explosives and machine gun weren't grounds for removal?
