So Biden must just have to think it's classified again, obviously. 😆

I imagine if Obama had told Hannity he stole a bunch of highly sensitive classified documents but it's okay because they were declassified "in his mind", Hannity would have reacted in the same way as he did to Trump. 😆

There must be a limit to these things.

In the Hannity interview, he said that the FBI planted the documents, that he also declassified them with his mind and that the FBI was at MaraLago looking for Hillary Clinton's emails.

Looks like Dearie (the Special Master hired to review documents seized at Mar a Lago) has stepped up his game. In addition to laying the smackdown on Trump's lawyers for failure to submit evidence that documents were unclassified, he has now done this:

From: https://ca.movies.yahoo.com/special-master-forces-trump-hand-195439205.html
The judge appointed to review the documents seized by the FBI in the bureau’s court-authorized search of Mar-a-Lago last month is demanding Donald Trump back up the wild claims he’s made on social media...Dearie ordered Trump’s side to submit by Sept. 30 “a declaration or affidavit”...asking for proof of Trump’s claims that the incriminating evidence found at Mar-a-Lago was part of an FBI frame job....Dearie has also appointed an assistant, James Orenstein, to help him...Orenstein will earn $500 an hour for his service. The bill, Dearie ordered, will be paid monthly—by Donald Trump.

The judge also stated that the assistant must be paid on time (within about a week of the billing) or Trump would immediately be held in contempt. (A smart move, given Trump's reputation of 1) not paying, and 2) using delaying tactics.

I am impressed. Dearie is going further than I ever expected to curtail Trump's tactics and keep things on track. (And this was one of the guys recommended by the Trump team.... I wonder how they could have accidentally picked someone who was, well, competent.)

I just hope that he doesn't "Pull a Mueller". And by that, I mean start as a person with widespread support from all parts of the political spectrum, to do good work for weeks/months on end, but then mess up at the very end. (In Mueller's case he underestimated the amount of corruption on the republican side, thus his work did not have the impact it should have.)

"Bragg’s effort to bring criminal charges against Trump appeared to fizzle earlier this year, after the newly-elected district attorney reportedly balked at filing such a case and the high-powered prosecutors who’d led that probe resigned. However, Bragg insisted Wednesday that the probe is far from stagnant.

'Our criminal investigation concerning former President Donald J. Trump, the Trump Organization, and its leadership is active and ongoing,' the DA said."
Bragg certainly is a disappointment. (To the point people are questioning whether Trump somehow 'got to him'.) He claims that the investigation is 'active', but the grand jury hasn't been active in months.

But, all is not lost. Maybe a strong showing in a civil case (along with any new evidence it provides) might cause renewed efforts for criminal charges. Or maybe (as Waldo mentioned), referrals to the feds might cause criminal investigations at the federal level.

And just because Trump doesn't have enough legal troubles already...

From: https://www.ctvnews.ca/world/trump-****-accuser-plans-suit-under-new-ny-survivors-law-1.6077306
A writer who accused former U.S. President Donald Trump of raping her in a department store dressing room intends to file another lawsuit against him under a new New York law letting sexual assault victims sue over attacks that happened decades ago. A lawyer for the columnist, E. Jean Carroll, notified a federal judge of her intent to sue in an August letter entered in the public record Tuesday.

Trump is officially the messiah now in the eyes of some supporters.

Well, THAT was money well spent...

From: https://news.yahoo.com/trump-sidelines-3m-attorney-inspires-204120629.html
...former Florida Solicitor General Chris Kise was paid a whopping $3 million advance to represent the former president after the FBI seized 11,000 sensitive files from his Florida home....Kise was officially sidelined from the federal probe by Tuesday. CNN reported that the lawyer is expected to stay on Trump’s legal team but will not be leading the defense.


Trump's current team of lawyers has been... less than stellar (one used to be the lawyer for a parking garage, one was a former TV host. And some of them might be in legal trouble themselves for lying that "all documents were returned".) Supposedly Kise was some sort of big name/superstar, so to see him take a secondary role has lead to all sorts of speculation....

- He might end up representing Trump in some of his other legal cases (such as the civil suite over financial fraud)
- Despite initial reports that he was paid up front, maybe Trump decided to stiff him somehow
- He may have tried to get Trump to follow actual reasonable legal advice, something that would seem contradictory to a man who almost confesses to crimes on a regular basis during his rallies

At this point, if anything comes to punish Trump he will be old and infirm like his hero Roy Cohn.

in regards the NY AG's fraud lawsuit, Trump just went on Fox's Hannity show to reveal his "gotcha" absolving him of any fraud claims/charges in regards the financial statements the AG is targeting!

Quote from: ConMan Trump to Hannity
We have a disclaimer. Right on the front. And it basically says, you know, get your own people. You're at your own risk ... It may be way off... Be careful. Because it may not be accurate. It may be too far… Get your people. Use your own lawyers. Don’t trust us.

and the accounting firm Mazars involved in, year after year, filing all the statements, also in azz-covering mode, includes the following phrasing; specifically:
