Ok. So they weren't planted.. phew!

They weren't mistakenly packed by the GSA.... Oh thank god!

He didn't actually wave his hands and declassify them .... Good to know.

You're just a crummy liar and a lousy thief.

To summarize from other threads, former presidents don't have executive privilege. The current president may claim it on their behalf if there is a good reason or just out of courtesy. I don't know that Biden has ever backed up any of Trump's claims.

Why is he not in irons now?

Too bad the indictment needed to lock him up was lost along with HRC's emails.

By now he's wondering 'why are they still paying attention to me, usually after this many excuses they shake their heads and I'm off free' and doesn't really seem that this isn't going to go away.

How many days before he's literally on the ground beating his fists, screaming to get his way?

The longer it goes on that the affidavit doesn't get released, the more they're going to keep throwing everything at that poor wall. It must look like a ketchup induced mosaic by now.

The judge is never going to release this affidavit and dotard won't get to see it until he's formally charged. This leaves lots of time for him to continue admitting he's guilty.

I've had the biggest lady schadenfreude boner for over 2 weeks!

No, I disagree. This is Little Dick Energy, and the more Trump protests the smaller it gets.

BDE is saying 'eff the election, I'm still rich and I'll go back to banging porn stars'. LDE is coming up with excuse after excuse about how this has never happened before.

Trump needs to stop acting like a whiny little b*tch, and Garland needs to let his balls low and put that biatch in his place.

He really has no idea how stupid his statements truly are.

There was no January 6 committee when he left office. The feds didn't search Mar-A-Lago because he withheld documents from the committee. They searched it because he stole the documents when he left office period.

Which means he just blatantly confessed to it.

2022-08-16 10:16:34 PM  
So NARA and the current administration determined that executive privilege doesn't apply to a criminal f*cking conspiracy, and that's why he was holding on to boxes of Top Secret and TS/SCI stuff which--and I'm guessing here--had nothing to do with the Italian Space Lasers that stole the election.
