At Above the Law, Liz Dye takes a deep dive into what’s happening with the case of the documents that Donald Trump stole from the government. A snippet:

It’s unclear what Donald Trump thought would happen when he dropped that bullshit lawsuit demanding a special master to sort through the documents seized when the FBI executed a search warrant at his Mar-a-Lago club August 8. He appeared to have no agenda other than mollifying Fox News host Laura Ingraham, who demanded a flurry of motions after more than a week when his lawyers sat silent as media outlets fought to get the warrant and underlying affidavit disclosed.


But now that US District Judge Aileen Cannon has appointed Judge Dearie as special master, the former president finds himself in the position of the dog who caught the car: staring at the prospect of actually sinking his teeth into the bumper or getting run over.

I find it pretty clear what Trump was trying to do. He was trying to do what he has always done with his bankruptcies and unpaid creditors: tie things up in court hoping that his foes would eventually just go away or, at worst, settle for pennies on the dollar.

I’m sure he failed to consider the implications of the special master.

I don’t think he does implications.
