Carolyn Maloney Provides NARA Cause to Assert Standing

Carolyn Maloney just made a request of Acting Archivist Debra Steidel Wall -- that she provide a report on any documents still missing from Donald Trump's stash by September 27 -- that may give NARA cause to intervene to access the documents seized last month.

And Steidel Wall must intervene-in DC, not Florida. It's a request from Congress.

Marcy Wheeler (Emptywheel) on Trump's "Special Master" filing


As you no doubt know, Trump filed a document that purports to be a request for a Special Master last night, over a week after discussing privilege issues with DOJ and three days after promising a significant Fourth Amendment filing.

This document is a lot of things:

-A confession to a violation of the Espionage Act
-A confession to making a threat against the Attorney General
-Serial proof that a Trump search was conducted like other searches
-Filed in the wrong place at the wrong time
-Not backed by sworn declarations to substantiate its “factual claims”
An invocation not of special master reviews by Trump’s own personal attorneys but instead an invocation of a terrorist lawyer convicted of conspiring with that terrorist.

One thing it is not is a significant Fourth Amendment filing. Trump couldn’t even manage that competently.
More good stuff at link above.

DOJ may have been investigating Trump for several months

Marcy Wheeler reports that Alan Feuer, like herself, actually reads court filings, unlike many pundits.

Re: Bannon-some questions

When (hopefully) he's found guilty-we have to wait a while for sentencing?

And when he endlessly appeals, if he has been sentenced to jail, he's out till the appeals are exhausted?

OK, please don't laugh at me

I have a half can of chocolate frosting. If I put it in the freezer, will I get some delicious fudge?

(Ah, you can laugh )

I've posted it before and I'll post it again...

If you follow the twitter account of Emptywheel and emptywheel.net, you will see there is plenty of evidence that DOJ is busily investigating 45 and his minions. Let's let it play out.
