So Stubby McBonespurs is probably a little upset...

After hitting the jackpot by getting a rather incompetent pro-Trump sycophant judge to issue an order for a special master to review the documents, the individual that was picked (Judge Raymond Dearie, who was actually one of Trump's suggestions) has been much more willing to follow the rules....

Dearie has been doing 2 things:

- Calling out Trump's lawyers for not explicitly stating or providing proof whether Trump had actually declassified documents. (Basically stating that if Trump's legal team doesn't come out and give evidence that stuff was declassified) he will accept the Prima Facia case that  the government's position  is correct and the ~100 relevant documents actually are still classified.

- He has suggested he will get the document review complete very quickly (long before the Trump team suggested for a deadline, even before the government's deadline). Given the fact that Trump's main legal tactic is "delay delay delay", having Dearie complete the review early will certainly be a problem for Trump

Judge Raymond Dearie repeatedly challenged Trumpís lawyers for refusing to back up the former presidentís claim that he declassified the highly sensitive national security-related records.... ďMy view of it is: you canít have your cake and eat it,Ē said Dearie....
