It's nice to see at least some people are seeing accountability for the attempted insurrection:

Quote:
A New Mexico state district court judge has disqualified county commissioner and Cowboys for Trump cofounder Couy Griffin from holding public office for engaging in insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

It would be nice to see the same accountability for the person which Griffin is a "Cowboy" for...

It sounds like Trump's lawyers made the mistake of proposing a competent judge as special master:

Trump's team miscalculated: Experts say Trump's handpicked special master just called his bluff | Salon.com

Judge Raymond Dearie is doing the job he was asked to perform, and Trump's lawyers don't like it.

Quote:
Donald Trump's attorneys on Tuesday refused to back up his claims that he "declassified" secret documents found at his Mar-a-Lago resort in response to a request from the special master that they sought.
Quote:
Trump's lawyers also took issue with Dearie's plan to complete the entire "inspection and labeling process" by October 7 after Cannon allocated two months for the review process.

"We respectfully suggest that all of the deadlines can be extended to allow for a more realistic and complete assessment of the areas of disagreement," Trump's attorneys wrote.
I read this as, "This was a delaying tactic, and you're not taking as long as we want - take longer."

My enthusiasm is tempered by the fact that Dearie is still subject to the control of that trumpanzee judge who agreed to this crackheaded foolishness in the first place, but this is good stuff. As I understand it, Dearie was the only person whose name appeared on both sides' lists of acceptable special master candidates. So yeah, another oopsie-daisy for clown-ass's very best lawyers.

It's not every day you see a 214-page, 838-paragraph verified complaint, but today ain't just another day!

People of the State of New York v. Donald J. Trump, et al.

The relief requested includes: revoking the Trump Organization's business license and appointing an independent monitor to oversee all its operations; replacing Trump's spawn as trustees of the Donald J. Trump Revocable Trust; requiring Trump to prepare accurate financial statements for his lenders; barring Trump and his companies from doing any real estate deals or loans for five years; permanently banning Trump and his spawn from being officers or directors in any New York corporation or other business entity; and disgorgement of fraudulent obtained funds estimated at $250 million, plus prejudgment interest.

Holy fuck. This makes New York County DA Alvin Bragg's decision not to prosecute the old incontinent morbidly obese adderall junkie look really, really bad. Not to worry, though. The New York AG plans on referring this shit to the IRS and U.S. Attorney's Office.

1. Tu quoque fallacy here.
2. Clinton lied about a BJ in a civil trial, Team Trump here is lying about issues of national security. The difference in severity is clear, so it's bad even as a tu quoque fallacy.
3. Isn't it a both a bit regressive and contrary to the public image of Mrs. Clinton to think she'd cede any power to the former president had she become President?

Most Democrats I know have soured on Bill for both his personal and political weaknesses and wouldn't mind not having him in the spotlight. Why haven't the Republicans done the same for Trump?

Anyhoo I couldn’t pass the opportunity to point out that Trumpy ain’t the only prez to have lied under oath and that’s IF what it’s true. And btw, Biden is ALSO incontinent. Don’t you remember he had to run out of the room during his visit with the pope because was shitting himself? Also, I heard the results of his colonoscopy included a thousand ballots that were Trumps

I’m amused they got someone who seems to actually respect the classification system. He wants them to be specific about which documents were declassified because he doesn’t want to have to read information he doesn’t need to know as the more eyes the less secure the documents is.

Such a fellow would probably not look too kindly on then storing those documents with magazines to read on the toilet.

Hot of the presses, the federal court of appeals hearing the government's appeal of that special master order has granted the government's request for a stay that allows the government to continue using documents marked "classified" in their criminal investigation.

The FAFO is strong up in here today.

:yup: I am sure they are feverishly working on yet another motion for Cannon and the fedsoc braintrust to come up with something they can argue and then grant them that relief. Equity no doubt demands that the Court enjoin performance of certain duties by the special master appointed to perform such duties of the special master. Whatever the opposite of mandamus is.

If New York is like most other states, its AG's office has little to no criminal law enforcement authority. Next time you hear a state AG candidate say shit like, "Vote for me cuz I'm tough on crime," please feel free to point and laugh.
