Tomorrow is the day

when the Judge rules on the release of the affidavit in support of the search warrant.

I'm anxious about it. Will we find out tomorrow what the result will be, or will we have to wait?

I don't want it released, but if it is, I want to read it. I think this is going to really cause trouble.

too much at stake and release could compromise the case and endanger numerous people involved.

There's a reason they don't publish those affidavits before they absolutely have to.

I hope the CIA/FBI work it so well that they trap every asshole that shows up to shoot those on the affidavit and keep it so clean and fast that if one shows up every 10 mins, they won't notice nothing?

Yeah toking it up today, feeling good whether I want to or not?

With ongoing criminal investigations? With national security sensitive information?

If he did, it would almost automatically be appealed to another court, I would think?

It shouldn't be released. I wish the Judge would sanction everyone in sight for wasting the Court's time. But, because crazier things have happened lately, I just don't know. We now live in an alternate universe, and how do I know if the Judge won't succumb to pressure?

But, I forgot that the Government can appeal, too! I want Trump to SWEAT.
