Anyone know any update? Said motion might be ruled on within weeks of 2-22. Couldn't find further update.

Weisselberg's attorneys also argued in the 162-page brief that the Manhattan district attorney and New York attorney general have targeted Trump, Weisselberg and the Trump Organization. In the filing, his attorneys argue that New York authorities were politically motivated in pursuing the indictment last summer charging them with a 15-year tax fraud scheme. Weisselberg and the Trump Organization have pleaded not guilty.
The motion to dismiss comes as the Manhattan District Attorney's Office continues to investigate the Trump Organization and its executives about the accuracy of financial statements provided to lenders, insurers and others. Last week, a New York judge ruled that Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and daughter Ivanka Trump need to testify in the New York attorney general's civil investigation into the Trump Organization's finances. Trumps attorneys have vowed to appeal.

Now, when some new GOP scandal/travesty comes out, my mind immediately bypasses
"This is the one! This is the act that's going to get them"
-and goes to-
"Is there an actual crime with hard evidence that a prosecutor will indict on?"
If the answer is likely no, then mental self-preservation kicks in to take it with a grain of salt, knowing also that the story will die within 24 hrs.
Been house hunting for a year... Pics sure do distort ..

LINK INCLUDES TABLE OF CRIMES
Despite Donald Trumps staggering record of likely criminal misconduct as president and candidate for that office, he has not been charged with a single criminal offense. While adherence to the rule of law requires that prosecutors pursue criminal indictments only where the facts, law, and principles of prosecution support such action, it is also critical that no individual be insulated from accountability simply because they are a national political figure, a former president or a candidate for public office. Choosing not to pursue accountability for fear of the political criticism or consequences is itself a deeply political act.
If President Trump avoids criminal prosecution for these potential offenses because prosecutors are unwilling to pursue legally justified cases against him, the message to him and future presidents will be clear: you can commit crimes with impunity.
Excellent Times article excerpt:
Many have already headed to Georgia and Armenia, two major visa-free destinations accessible now that Russian airlines have been banned from most Western airspace. Some have gone to Central Asia, where they are packing hotels in Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan, or to the Asian and Middle Eastern countries that do not require visas. Others lucky enough to have Schengen visas have rushed west by car and train. The number of routes out of the country is shrinking, and the price of plane tickets has risen. A social media channel offering advice on emigration from Russia to the free world already has more than 100,000 members. Some Russian passport offices appear to be overwhelmed.
Three weeks from 2-17-22. Supposedly had to turn over documents by 2 weeks after 2-17. Didn't see any further blocking litigation efforts.
In a ruling Thursday, New York Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron roundly rejected bids by the Trumps to dodge giving testimony on grounds of James alleged bias and that her office is conducting parallel criminal and civil investigations.
Engoron said all three Trumps have the option of showing up for the depositions and refusing to answer the questions based on their constitutional right not to testify against themselves
