That's just how Trump do.  He wants to force the issue in his own stupid attempt to put the shoe on the other foot.  Just like he did with the warrant.  Just like he did with the records in the first place.  He just wants to make it seem like he's making the demands because he has no power to do anything himself (which plays into his narrative that he had his power stolen from him).  It's all about playing the victim.

DOJ will not unseal the affidavit because the investigations are ongoing.  Donald has nothing to oppose or non-oppose because there are [alleged] crimes in question and he's really pretty much nothing special in terms of criminality -- certainly not special enough for DOJ to really give a fig about what Donald thinks about anything.
 
2022-08-18 3:00:10 PM  
Since when does the DOJ have to explain itself in the middle of an investigation?  WTF?

It's like the mafia calling the cops, asking if they're looking into them and what they've got.

WTF SMDH AUGH

Why do that when he can stir up some more violence amongst his supporters?
 
2022-08-18 3:01:40 PM  
Nope. Non opposition or not. It's an ongoing investigation, disclosure would interfere by exposing witnesses for example
 
2022-08-18 3:04:40 PM  
But how does one sell tickets to non-opposition?
 
2022-08-18 3:06:13 PM  
It doesn't matter, the DOJ doesn't want to release it, so I doubt they're gonna. The press is clamoring for its release, too, and that probably doesn't matter, either.

The vicious bullying levied at President Trump is just short of a public lynching. How are we going to feel if he is killed in prison, or by some madman on the street?

Well, imagine your El Chapo or Frank Lucas or whomever -- one of your American places gets hit with a search warrant. But you haven't been charged, yet.

Do you really think the FBI is going to give your lawyers all their homework? A blueprint for how they got there, and where they're going post-execution of the search warrant?

Because thats the game Trump is trying to play -- all the while dreading the thought of any of that information coming out. Except the witness info - he definitely wants that.

the answer to literally *ANY* question about why donnie pissfreak does or doesn't do anything boils down to one of four things:  greed, vanity, spite, and/or stupidity.

he is not a complicated person.  his inner circle operates on the same parameters.  the republican base holds those parameters in exceptionally high regard because they've been convinced that one day, they'll be allowed in on the 'action'.

i wish it didn't require 114 threads every day for the last seven years to get that through most people's thick heads but here we are.

Isn't it sealed to protect the person who ratted on Trump? I don't think him signing a non-opposition would be enough to get it unsealed.

Yeah, but they need to cut trump's posturing off at the knees because the more he makes wild claims, the more likely one of his cult members does something really bad.

No one, i repeat, NO ONE should be injured or killed because of this incompetent game show host.

I'd have a few feelings:

1) surprised Trump's secret service praetorians let a random radical liberal pacifist socialism him to death. And
B) absolutely gobsmacked that Trump was walking down a public street without teargassing it first.

Do you really think so? I think those reptiles he nominated care nothing about him now. His usefulness to them is over.

Mayne it's because he has the worst f*cking attorneys.

Or maybe he is so full of self-importance that he thinks his off-brand Tweets hold just as much authority as a court filing.
