I'm sure they'll get right on that

Wait, let me get me crystal ball.

The white house will refuse.
There will be a hold placed pending appeal.
This will go all the way to the SCOTUS.
Be denied on a 5-4 decision.

So now the Whitehouse will strategically leak the most innocuous of the 20 documents while they are under review and claim that it was the judge who leaked it because Obama.

They just came to me recently. The last two years or so. It's amazing how well I can predict the future now.

The people of Ukraine might be interested in seeing those emails. They probably have some questions like, "AARGGH WHY" and "SWEET JESUS HOW" and suchlike.
 
2020-05-14 2:36:08 AM  
OK, but how many of them are Hunter Biden's emails?

Another round of "I see you've made your decision, now let's see you enforce it". We are so screwed.

The administration has refused to produce the communications thus far, claiming the documents are protected from public release by executive privilege.

If he's not guilty of anything then why not just hand them ov....Oh, because he's likely guilty.
fark you Trump and fark your administration.  If those communications go missing then I hope you and the knob-bobbers that enable you rot penniless in prison.

This sounds like an excellent campaign talking point.

There's no way they actually turn them over.

It's ok!  This is the kind of thing a free press feels responsible to communic...

This must mean something huge is about to drop.  I'm thinking ASAP.

Actually they generally do with a judges order. They usually wait until ten minutes before the deadline but I don't think they have shunned a court order yet.

I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

Correct away!

Was the FOIA request for all perfect emails related to Ukraine?
 
2020-05-14 4:00:28 AM  
Here is how the emails will be turned over.

Its (still not) happening!

The administration has refused to produce the communications thus far, claiming the documents are protected from public release by executive privilege.

And until someone grows a spine and starts arresting people for non-compliance then it will stay that way.

"What are you gunna do? Arrest me? I'm the President I can't be arrested! What you wanna fine me? You see this activist judge wasting the tax payers money?"

I won't feel a single drip of empathy if someone shoots him. Bush earned my rage. Trump fuels my disgust that I see them as lower than human.

The great question of our time is "what would the secret service do if presented with a valid arrest warrant for someone under their protection?"

Our time has problems.

I see it a bit differently.

It will be tied up in appeals until after Trump loses the election, at which point the Republicans will want more power in Congress to oppose a Democratic President, so the Court will approve it. But narrowly, as Kavannaugh's entire appointment is tied up in the Ukraine mess so he will definitely vote to keep those emails secret.

Noooooooo And I see you found it .... it's Friday. I'm wearing my bike helmet all day just in case.

You mean ASAP doesn't equate to NOW?
 
2020-05-14 7:26:24 AM  
I'm hoping the judge doesn't like walking across many streets.  I'm assuming trump is just going to say 'no' and then talk about how horrible the judge is and how he can't do anything but those 2nd amendment people...you know *winkwinknudgenudge*

Turns out "following the law" isn't something the executive branch of the government has to do.

ASAP?  That means instantaneously.  They're emails.

ordering the government to deliver them within one week.

THEY'RE farkING EMAILS

Barr will take care of it.

Probably starting an investigation of alleged wrongdoing by the judge as we speak.
