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

https://www.emptywheel.net/2022/08/23/trumps-reneges-on-promised-significant-fourth-amendment-filing/#comments


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.
