'I want my documents back!' Trump attacks the National Archives in new Truth Social rant

Former President Donald Trump is demanding that the National Archives and Records Administration give back the top-secret documents he improperly took from the White House and stashed at his Mar-a-Lago resort.

In a new rant posted on Truth Social, the former president cited past instances in which the National Archives had lost information from past White Houses as evidence that documents, which included secrets on another country's nuclear program, were safer being stored at his luxury resort in Florida.

 
 

Trump uses his widely panned $475 million CNN lawsuit as a ploy to beg followers for money

Former President Donald Trump on Monday announced he was suing CNN for a whopping $475 million for purportedly airing "fake news" about him in a civil suit that legal experts widely dismissed as a publicity stunt.

But as Bloomberg News reports, skepticism from the legal community about the lawsuit's chances of success hasn't stopped the former president from using it to raise money from his followers.

Former prosecutor predicts Trump is about to get 'bench-slapped' by the Supreme Court

Former federal prosecutor Joyce White Vance spoke to MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace about the recent filing to appeal the 11th Circuit Court's opinion to allow the Justice Department to continue its work on the investigation of the theft of government documents.

Justice Clarence Thomas is the one who generally oversees the 11th Circuit, but Vance explained that folks shouldn't read too much into that.

Maggie Haberman has a recording where she asked Trump if he was watching television during the insurrection.  He said he was not and didn't know what was going on until later.  Hmmm.

So let me get this straight ... Trump holds a rally, works up thousands of people and tells them to go to the Capitol if they want to save their country.  He tries to go there himself but the secret Service won't let him.  He knows that the Count will be televised and is waiting to see if Mike Pence will stop the proceedings.

BUT he has no interest in finding out what will happen and doesn't turn on the tv.  Got it.

'Driven by spite': Maggie Haberman gives warning about a second Trump term

If former President Donald Trump is successful in a 2024 political comeback, his second term in the White House would be driven by spite, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Maggie Haberman explained on PBS Newshour.

Anchor Judy Woodruff reported, "a number of news reporters have tried and are still trying to understand former President Donald Trump and his influence on our nation's politics today. One who has undoubtedly spent more time covering him than any other is New York TimesWhite House correspondent Maggie Haberman, who has been covering Mr. Trump since the 1990's."

Mar-a-Lago logs inadvertently posted on court website — show few seized docs were privileged: report

Bloomberg News correspondent Zoe Tillman scored a major scoop on Tuesday when she reported that under-seal Mar-a-Lago search documents were posted online.

"The thousands of documents seized from former President Donald Trump’s Florida home included a mix of government, business and personal affairs, including analysis about who should get a pardon, call notes marked with a presidential seal, retainer agreements for lawyers and accountants, and legal bills, according to newly disclosed logs created by federal investigators," Tillman reported. "The detailed lists of seized materials were attached to a recently unsealed Aug. 30 report from the Justice Department. A judge had ordered the logs stay under seal but they appeared to be inadvertently posted to the public court docket. They’re no longer publicly visible."

Trump suffers another defeat as 11th Circuit grants DOJ's request to fast-track appeal of special master order

Late last month, the Department of Justice asked a federal appeals court to speed up its review an order appointing a special master to analyze documents seized by the FBI from former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort.

On Monday, Trump's legal team asked the federal appeals court in Atlanta to deny DOJ's efforts to expedite the case, "arguing Trump’s team is already crunched for time dealing with the special master review and district court action. That includes going over the 11,000 documents, totaling about 200,000 pages, to determine if they’re protected by attorney-client or executive privilege and litigating any fights over those claims, they said," according to Bloomberg. 

 
 

'Doomed to fail': Legal experts trash Trump’s appeal after he runs to SCOTUS over Mar-a-Lago docs

Former President Donald Trump on Tuesday asked the Supreme Court to intervene in his legal battle over classified documents seized from his Mar-a-Lago residence.

Trump-appointed U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon last month ordered a special master review of the documents and blocked the Justice Department from continuing its criminal investigation into the matter. The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta overturned part of her order that blocked the DOJ's investigation into the more than 100 documents marked classified. On Tuesday, Trump filed an emergency appealto the Supreme Court arguing that the court was wrong to block the documents from the review and requesting that special master Raymond Dearie be granted authority to review the documents with classified markings.

 
 

Trump's legal team is in complete chaos as some lawyers are in, then out, then back in again: Washington Post reporter

Washington Post reporter Carol Leonnig revealed that Donald Trump's collection of lawyers are a complete disaster, even as he appeals to the Supreme Court to stop the Justice Department investigation into the stolen White House documents. 

Former Brooklyn prosecutor Charles Coleman destroyed the Trump legal team's argument about the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals not having standing in the case where they went shopping for their own "friendly" judge. He explained that if it was really an issue then it should have been brought up long before now. 

 
 

Trump's 'trainwreck' lawsuit against CNN could put his lawyers in an awkward spot

According to MSNBC opinion columnist Hayes Brown, Donald Trump has placed his attorneys in an awkward position after getting them to file a $475 million defamation lawsuit against CNN that, should it go to trial, will be compounded by the fact that the lawsuit is meritless and the attorneys know it.

Calling the filing a "trainwreck" based on legal citations that would not hold up to scrutiny, Brown claimed the lawsuit is likely headed nowhere quickly because its central contention is laughable.

 
 

Trump's Supreme Court gambit is the last stop before 'crazytown' — and likely to fail: legal experts

Donald Trump has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene in the Mar-a-Lago documents probe, but legal analysts agree he'll likely be disappointed again.

The former president seems to believe the court he helped shape will slow down the Justice Department's investigation of stolen government documents by ensuring that classified materials are reviewed by a third-party special master, but there's no guarantee the justices will take up the case -- and he might lose even if they do, reported CNN.

Legal experts say Judge Cannon’s blunder proves she’s a Trump ‘lackey’

Mistakenly unsealed court documents show that a Donald Trump-appointed judge is bending over backwards to help the former president in his battle against the Department of Justice, according to a new analysis published at The Daily Beast.

An Aug. 30 letter to District Court judge Aileen Cannon was mistakenly posted on the public document Tuesday night and quickly noticed by Bloombergreporter Zoe Tillmann, and the filing reveals the court was notified that the DOJ intended to return numerous personal records to Trump six days before the judge claimed he was suffering "real harm” by being “deprived of potentially significant personal documents."

OPEC reduced oil production in order to drive up prices just one month before the midterm elections. Who pushed for this? Russia, along with Saudi Arabia. And who benefits politically here? Trumps, MAGA politicians and the GOP. If gas prices go higher, remember why.

Thanks to Trump, Christian groups are convinced it's the apocalypse — and some are finding ways to profit

The zombies aren't in the streets and the four horsemen haven't been spotted yet, but many Christians believe that the end is nigh. Any time there are natural disasters like major weather events and outbreaks of disease like COVID-19 or major international events such as the Russian invasion of Ukraine, it piques speculation about the Biblical end times. But that isn't what's causing an increase in interest of the end of the world, according to a new analysis. 

Slate explained that it makes for the perfect opportunity for booksellers to begin profiting off of the paranoia. Citing Publishers Weekly, slate noted a number of apocalypse books are coming out to meet the demand. It isn't the first time, however. Evangelicals thought the end times were coming in 2017 because Trump moved the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem and Christian theocrat Roy Moore briefly rose to prominence.

Trump is decompensating, as evidenced by rapid fire posts, easily a dozen in the last hour alone. Decompensation is when someone with a mental illness declines at an accelerated pace. Symptoms worsen, ability to cope lessens, stress dominates more visibly, desperation is evident.

Trump again floats claim of FBI 'planting' documents even after special master demanded he put up real proof

Former President Donald Trump is once again floating baseless claims that the FBI "planted" documents at his Mar-a-Lago resort, even though the special master that he requested has told him he needs to show concrete proof to back up such claims.

On his Truth Social platform, Trump linked to months-old posts by conservative columnist Paul Sperry in which he implicated FBI supervisory intelligence analyst Brian Auten in purported nefarious activity related to the search and seizure of top-secret government documents at Mar-a-Lago.

Legal experts say appeals ruling is a bad sign for Trump

A U.S. appeals court on Wednesday granted the Justice Department's request to expedite its consideration of whether an outside legal expert should have been appointed to review the 11,000 documents seized by the FBI at former President Donald Trump's Florida residence. 

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals issued an order shortening the timeline for the Justice Department and Trump's lawyers to finish submitting legal briefs to the court by November 17 after the DOJ arguedthat delaying the process could harm the agency's investigation into the potential illegal retention of classified documents.

 
 

Poll: Majority of Michigan voters say Trump broke the law by taking classified documents

DETROIT — A majority of likely Michigan voters believe former President Donald Trump broke the law when he took classified documents from the White House to his Florida resort, according to a new statewide poll commissioned by The Detroit News and WDIV-TV. The survey of 600 likely voters, conducted by the Lansing-based Glengariff Group, found nearly 55% of respondents said they thought Trump committed a crime when he took around 100 classified documents — some containing sensitive national security secrets, according to the U.S. Department of Justice — from the White House to Mar-a-Lago in Pal...

‘Major step toward an indictment’: experts weigh in on DOJ thinking Trump still has more documents

Federal investigators worry that former President Donald Trump may possess more documents than the National Archives and Federal Bureau of Investigation have recovered.

"A top Justice Department official told former President Donald J. Trump’s lawyers in recent weeks that the department believed he had not returned all the documents he took when he left the White House, according to two people briefed on the matter," The New York reported. "The outreach from the official, Jay I. Bratt, who leads the department’s counterintelligence operations, is the most concrete indication yet that investigators remain skeptical that Mr. Trump has been fully cooperative in their efforts to recover documents the former president was supposed to have turned over to the National Archives at the end of his term."
