Maryland Trump delegate indicted after ATF agents find explosives, machine gun and child porn

Published

A delegate for Donald Trump from Charles County, Maryland was indicted this week on charges related to illegal transport of explosives, possession of a machine gun and child pornography.

In a press release on Thursday, the U.S. Department of Justice said that ATF agents began investigating 30-year-old Caleb Andrew Bailey after postal inspectors discovered a package with .50 caliber cartridges with M48A1 incendiary projectiles and other ammunition with explosive projectiles.

On May 5, law enforcement executed a search warrant “at adjoining properties associated with Bailey, including his residence, and seized a machine gun,” according to the statement.

Court documents allege that Bailey also used a minor to produce child pornography, and that child pornography was found in his possession.

Bailey faces over 50 years in prison if found guilty of all charges.

The Maryland Board of Election currently lists Bailey as a delegate for Donald Trump.

Update, 8:36 p.m. EST: The Daily Beast reported that both Trump’s campaign and the state Republican Party have vowed to remove Bailey from their roster of delegates.

“We are promoting an alternate delegate from the district,” state party chair Joe Cluster said. “Somebody got lucky, I guess. [The replacement] can sit on the floor now.”

However, Bailey did have the support of a fellow delegate, Jim Crawford. Crawford told the Beast that he had known Bailey all of his life, and coached his soccer team at one point. The items found on Bailey’s computer, he said, could have come from outside sources.

“If they found something like that, he just drew a virus,” Crawford said. “Shoot, I know people that’s been affected by viruses. Who’s ever gotten an email that they thought was inappropriate? Heck, there might be that kind of stuff on my computer.”

Trump, who has almost 65 million followers on Twitter, claimed without evidence that the press doesn't check facts, makes up facts and even make up sources.

Trump then claimed it is the media who have gone "totally crazy" he argued, with "crazy" in all capital letters and followed by four exclamation points.
