This was intentional. Now they will go back with a "dog ate my homework" excuse and ask for another extension. This is how Trump has always worked the legal system.

Four farking pages?

Early in the insurrection, Donnie asked out loud if he should order the crowd to stand down. His boss sent a message, one letter on each page: N, Y, E, T.

Seems pretty clear the Supreme Court will pull an emergency order out of their collective asses this afternoon, or this is fifth dimensional chess and they will use it as an excuse to just shut down the whole investigation under the precedent of fark You v Thats Why.

Can you imagine if people with an IQ over 12 tried a coup, considering how close these chulcklef*cks came... we're screwed.

That was the first coup, in 2000.

Whatever he isn't paying his lawyers, they're not even worth that much. That's just either sloppy calendaring or someone forgot to ask "The Boss" if it was okay.

Lawyers don't "miss deadlines".  They don't "make mistakes".  Everything they do is intentional.  So no matter what this looks like to us on the outside, this is part of a larger plan.

Probably something along the lines of how they will appeal any further requests based on information found in those documents.  Because they will claim that they were obtained in a "sketchy" manner.  They weren't.  It will have to go to court to determine that.  But it will successfully delay this whole process yet again.  And that is their only intent.

Trump gets the best legal representation he's willing to pay for.

NateAsbestos: Four farking pages?


You think Donny ever read or wrote more than four pages?
 
2022-01-19 11:22:23 AM  
Biden knows what's in those 4 pages. If they aren't especially damning, and don't reveal new information, this makes Biden look like he is properly safeguarding the Executive.

I've read all of TFG's filings on this. Every last one. His arguments are hopelessly futile and his attempt to invoke EP will fail. His filings look exactly like they were written to be read to him, at least in highlight form, talking about the privileges that he is due. It's legal crap. It's whiny. It's in deep denial.

It's clearly ego candy for TFG. It's pugilistic. That dog won't hunt.

Way to telegraph your intent, archivist!  Now they have 24-hours to file to stop you.

Lawyers may also "miss" deadlines when they are not being paid.

You know how I know you don't know many lawyers?...
 
2022-01-19 11:26:01 AM  
They were going to file on Monday but didn't realize Offices were closed. So, really, it was MLK's fault.

Except the documents are coming from the National Archives not Team Trump.

However and durbnpoisn are correct in principal, it is part of a well used plan to delay and outlast the system until whoever is trying to get the information finally settles for a lot, lot less than what they initially wanted.

That the RNC is willing to pay for. Trump ain't paying jack.

He doesn't expect to win on the merits of his claims. He expects to win by running out the clock.

Remember the Mueller report and those obstructions of justice he listed? Trump's out of office now. Which happens first - charges, or the statute of limitations runs out? Place your bets...

Like the yellow high lighting. As well as privilege being used twice. There's the meat 'n potatoes to fully exploit legally. Have these numbskulls define it, not with a dictionary, legally, including constitutional law. Ie., what makes you so special to be above the law? Of course they'll start with the former president stuff. He ain't president now, and I betcha there's some really, really obscure, tucked away, deep in a back file, or legal text about once you've lost the election and are now soon to be ex-president, excutive privilege has a different meaning-if any.

The whole point is to get it before the Supremes.  Hunting dogs mean nothing when you are fishing from a barrel.

He can definitely complain no matter what happens. Nobody has ever complained better than him.

Delay Delay Delay Obstruct

It's the only dance TFG ever had on his dance card.
 
2022-01-19 11:41:06 AM  
I hate to say it but I'm willing to bet there isn't even anything in the documents he is trying to block. I'm sure there is something incriminating somewhere, but 99% of the attempting to block the release of documents is just to delay them getting past those documents to something actually incriminating.
 
2022-01-19 11:41:38 AM  
4 pages, huh? Earth-shattering I'm sure.
 
2022-01-19 11:42:22 AM  
Wait, why did the Biden administration give him an extension???
 
2022-01-19 11:42:36 AM  
I hope those four pages start out with "I, Donald J. Trump, am authorizing a clearly illegal overthrow of our democracy...."

WHY IN THE SWEET BLUE F*CK IS BIDEN GIVING TRAITOROUS TRUMP A GODDAMN EXTENSION?!?

Enough of this professional courtesy bullsh*t, you morons. Do you imagine even for an instant that such a courtesy would be extended from them to you?

Jesus f*cking Christ, I'm tired of feeling like my team isn't in this to f*cking goddamn WIN.

Democrats are playing flag football and the Republicans switched to tackle awhile ago. And the Democrats seem to wonder why they keep getting the shiat kicked out of them.

Federal courts love helping Trump drag out legal battles.  Expect them to give him another assist here.
