⚡️ Governor: Ukrainian forces trap 5,000 Russian troops in Lyman. Russian troops asked their commanders if they could retreat but the request was turned down, according to Serhiy Haidai, the governor of Luhansk Oblast.

At this point, it's too late for an off-ramp, but he could be reducing his criminal liability instead of behaving stupidly and increasing it. Okay, I'll take off my defense lawyer hat, except to say: if you ever get in trouble, stay quiet and listen to your lawyer. 8/

. . . while Cannon is doing everything she can to help him, the classified documents have been removed from the case. The criminal investigation into those is continuing. So he is the plaintiff in this case and a potential criminal defendant. 7/

Trump is the target of a criminal investigation. He is in the pre-indictment stage, meaning that a grand jury is hearing evidence and he is likely to be indicted. He brought this lawsuit to try to prevent evidence from going to a grand jury . . . 6/
Replying to @Teri_Kanefield
Aren’t they the plaintiff? “A Wednesday night court filing from Trump’s team was combative, with defense lawyers questioning the Justice Department’s truthfulness and motives.”

Here is where I explain more fully⤵️ I suspect that Philbin and Herschmann also tried to find an off-ramp for Trump. I fully understand that Trump would never listen to good legal advice, and in fact, he uses lawyers to try to get around the law. 5/
Normally, if a defendant finds that he is the target of a criminal investigation, he does an assessment with his lawyer (ideally, a good criminal defense lawyer). First, they evaluate the case. Do they have any defenses? Any reason to hope for a court win? 1/

Kise used the phrase "find an off-ramp." It is what any good defense lawyer would try to do for a client in the pre-indictment stage. At this point, it's clear Trump will be indicted, but he probably could have avoided it had he been smarter from the beginning. 4/

Russia is “…more famous for its poisoned underwear than its haute couture and more focused on unlocking its…reservoirs of gas and oil than on its…reservoirs of human genius and creativity. The whole world is diminished by Putin’s diminishing of Russia.” nytimes.com/2022/09/30/opini…

In 1987, Larry Bird posted a quadruple-double when he scored 28 points, grabbed 14 rebounds, dished out 12 assists, and saved 10 dollars by cutting his hair his goddamn self.

Based on recent information, I think it's likely the Russians are/have retreated from the Lyman area. It seems like they are getting hit by AFU recon/SOF while trying to leave.

Russian Spetsnaz units were completely destroyed in Stavky after they got surrounded by rapid Ukrainian offensives. These particular groups are reported to be the ones that were correcting a huge amount of Russian artillery fire in the area.

In today's Putin's speech: An imperialist colonizer condemned colonialism. A fascist leader and genocide perpetrator assured he's fighting neo-Nazism. A butcher of Asian minorities spoke out against racism.

Until this morning, Rybar were still talking about reinforcements and a counter-counter-offensive. Now: "At this stage, it is not possible to turn the tide of the battles for Liman." 🇺🇦

And this is already confirmed also by Russian militant channels ("Whatever promises there were to send us reinforcements never materialized". So Lyman is in Ukrainian hands.
