“Is it live or is it Mar-a-Lago?” That’s what Judge Raymond Dearie would like to know. Like the rest of us, he’s heard all about the evidence that the FBI supposedly “planted” on August 8, the day that the FBI executed a search warrant. Ergo, the judge, Trump’s Special Master, has provided Donald Trump a “final opportunity to raise any factual dispute as to the completeness and accuracy of the Detailed Property Inventory.”

That final opportunity is September 30 and it’s Trump’s last shot. if he’s got evidence, now is the time to show it, or forever hold his peace. And you know what the chances of that are, but hey, the judge is doing his job and laying down the rules, so we can’t blame him. NBC News:

After the FBI search of his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Trump and his lawyers have publicly insinuated on multiple occasions without providing evidence that agents planted evidence during the search. “Planting information anyone?” Trump wrote on his Truth Social platform Aug. 12.

In a filing Thursday, Senior U.S. District Judge Raymond J. Dearie of New York, the court-appointed special master, ordered the government to turn over copies of all non-classified items seized in the case to Trump’s lawyers by Monday.

He then ordered Trump’s team to submit a “declaration or affidavit” of any items in the inventory that were removed from Mar-a-Lago that the “Plaintiff asserts were not seized from the Premises,” meaning items that were put there by someone else.

Dearie also asked Trump’s lawyers to identify any items that were seized by agents but not listed in the inventory. “This submission shall be Plaintiff’s final opportunity to raise any factual dispute as to the completeness and accuracy of the Detailed Property Inventory,” he wrote.

Where is this going next?

  1. Donald will put up? You know he hasn’t got anything.
  2. Donald will shut up? Fat chance of that.
  3. The Special Master will become a coffee boy?
  4. The Special Master will become part of the Deep State?
  5. QAnon will start reading special codes in every other word that the Special Master writes?
  6. Donald will ignore the situation altogether.

Frankly, if I had to go for one, I would pick number six. I think that this is minor, considering the legal tornado that Trump finds himself in now. This is a mere pencil cup flying around him, when he’s got to worry about one of those airborne cows squashing him, not to mention that trailer that just took flight and is headed his way.

I think he’ll shine the September 30 deadline on. If things weren’t so crazy otherwise, then I think he might cobble together some kind of a conspiracy theory but with all the problems he’s got, this is just going to fly under the radar and be forgotten.

  1. I think TFG wants a combination of options 3 and 4.


    I would be very surprised if Judge Cannon hasn’t been unofficially told that firing Judge Dearie at this point means her legal career is over.

    • In which case, Cannon has been lied to. As far as her career goes, it ended the moment she chose Mango Mussolini over her masters in the Federalist Society.

  2. Don’t think he can ignore this one. As defenses go, what does he have left? If he’s as eager to get back those files as I expect, he’ll have to think of…heh. Who am I kidding? He doesn’t think.

  3. 440 admissions of GUILT when you’re in civil court. Right red? Your boy said ON TAPE pleading the fifth was done by the guilty. Right red? Or did you miss that cuz your head is up your nazi loving ass. Oh right. That’s it. Cue up the nazi lover’s excuses!

  4. I am beginning to believe that we cannot build mental institutions fast enough or big enough for all the Russian bots, Nazi lovers and Republicans in the US.
