SEVEN weeks now since the MAL search and the former POTUS still has not said why he took thousands of govt docs, lied about the docs, and what he did or planned to do with them. And his legal team has not raised one factual or legal defense.

Wow! What a flautist!
Hearing @lizzo play some of the Library's priceless antique instruments on Monday was such a gift, and we were honored and happy to help her share that gift with her concert audience Tuesday night. Here is some more behind-the-scenes footage of her Library tour. #LizzoAtLOC

1/2 DOJ has filed a motion to expedite its appeal on the remaining issues pending in front of the 11th Circuit after the MAL search. They cite the appropriate local rules for expediting & make a compelling case for it. politico.com/f/?id=00000183-…

Strong. Definitive. Finally.
Strong argument. DOJ asks 11th Circuit for expedited review to quash Judge Cannon's exercise of jurisdiction/order. Reason: USG needs access to 11,000 docs to figure out how the classified records were transferred, stored, and who accessed them.👇 politico.com/f/?id=00000183-…

Infighting in Trump legal team. The sane one is of course losing out. But at least he got paid $$$ up front.
Trump's new $3 million lawyer counseled trying to seek a quiet resolution of the Mar-a-Lago case with the DOJ. But quiet is not Trump's style. So after just a few weeks on the case, Chris Kise is battling to be heard and taking on a lesser role. washingtonpost.com/national-…

Hard to disagree with @RepJeffries here: Ginny Thomas has all but confessed to seditious conspiracy, a federal felony. Disgusting.
Hakeem Jeffries has fucking had it with Clarence and Ginni Thomas

I stand by what this @nytimes op-ed by @JeffShesol quotes me as saying after serving on the President’s Commission on the Supreme Court: His “admiration for the court as an institution has been overtaken by reality. And I think it’s time to wake up.” nytimes.com/2022/09/30/opini…

Remember Ginni Thomas told Meadows by text that she was speaking with “her best friend.” After saying Biden shd be in GTMO, is running a crime family, and engaged in the biggest heist in history. And her J6C statement cagily does not actually deny speaking to Clarence about this.
Why would a husband and wife speak to each other?

This is from Judge Cannon’s Order initially appointing Judge Dearie, clearly giving him discretion to verify the inventory. And she cited cases authorizing courts to engage in all needed fact finding, which she now takes away from Dearie to help Trump.
