One would hope the judge's answer is "lol, no".  Just that for his written opinion.

One would hope the judge's answer is "criminal interference in an ongoing investigation. 90 days!"

Patrick was always a bit of a legend in his own mind.

He's what happens when old money was spared the rod but given enough rope to hang themself with.

The dude who got honeypotted by Miss Butterface International Mariia Butina?

Great.

I was planning on buying a bunch of patio furniture from Overstock this week, and was just reminded of what a douche the CEO is. Guess I am going to have to look elsewhere.

Appointing crackpot Sydney Powell as ANYTHING tells me all I need to know about Donald Trump.

Ok, it doesn't.  There's lots more.  But that, alone, would be enough.

He did use "hereby," though...

See if there is a liquidator brick and mortar store in your area. We have quite a few in SoCal, I would think their kind would have a footprint just about anyplace.
I found one in La Habra that had these cute little mushroom salt and pepper shakers , made in Turkey. We gave them as xmas gifts to folks who like mushrooms.
They also had flat screens , patio and interior furniture , clothing, even groceries.

With all his billions he couldn't find any lawyer willing to help him with this?

Thats all you really need to know, right there.

It's grifting. All the way down the line. They've just decided this country forked and they're going to make every red cent they can off it.

I was introduced to this loser by a guy (CEO of a F500 company) who was supposed to be smart.  Between the 2 of them I thought they might have one fully functioning brain.  Evidently, I over estimated.

Presidents are not Barbara Eden. They actually have to do paperwork to accomplish anything.

The 2020 election conspiracy domain has become very similar to the flat-earther movement. There's no actual evidence being given. The entire movement consists of people coming up with ways it COULD BE explained.  When it comes to election conspiracies, as long as those theories involve a way to blame Democrats, you've got yourself a bingo.

Dude has zero invested in overstock.com anymore. He very famously cut, sold all his stock, and ran back in 2019 after he got his dick wrapped up in spygate. .

I'm not a big fan of making generalizations, but why is it that every rich asshole thinks that they have a right to possess something for no other reason than it exists.

Where the fark does this guy get the idea that he has any 1) legal right to this information, 2) any legal standing where he can just file something in a court, in which he isn't even remotely a party to the case, that will result in a ruling that says he should get this information?

Looks like a mix of early 2000's Britney Spears and Lori Loughlin.

He's besties with Michael Flynn and a big mover and shaker in the MAGAt swamp in SW Florida. He is basically Mr. MyPillow but a little richer.

I'm sure they have kash patel locked away in a top secret location fabricating all the documents as we speak.

That's the thing about rich assholes - they're rich, and they're assholes. Lots of rich people aren't assholes and lots of assholes aren't rich, but when the two traits present together the result is someone who is uniquely easy to despise.

Anyone can move to intervene. See FRCP 24.

I'm familiar with Rule 24. Where does he fall under that rule? It says anyone can intervene who meets certain conditions. It's just not anyone who gets a wild hair up their ass, or is feeling particularly nosy can file a motion before the court and become an intervenor.

He's not the subject of, or even tangentially related to the warrant served upon Lard-O-Lago to secure classified documents. What claim or right does he have an interest in that cannot be served by the existing parties in this action?

maybe he has a point

i'm gonna buy his book so i can feel good about being bipartisan

I didn't mean to imply that his proposed intervention has merit - it doesn't - but rather that he has every right to bring the argument and get laughed out of court.
