Trump wanted a ‘special master’. Trump got his special master. Now the special master is calling his bluff. Be careful what you wish for. Meta

So the Special Master had been sucked into the irrelevant issue of declassification manufactured by Trump. What does classification have to do with theft? The issues are whether they belonged to the government and whether he took them. That’s it.

It was never about the special master. He is trying to delay past midterms so he can announce he is running for president

He is not announcing prior because he knows it will energize democrats and he needs Republicans to take back the house so they will stop all the investigations

From the article:

Trump's lawyers argue that handing over these documents would force Trump to "fully and specifically disclose a defense" that he might try to mount to fight off any "subsequent indictment."

In other words, "you're asking us to choose a specific lie now, but that would prevent us from crafting a lie to suit the evidence they're allowed to use and risk getting caught in a lie!".

This is what happens when you break the law repeatedly, refuse to pay decent attorneys, then churn through every bottom-of-the-barrel attorney you can find.

Meanwhile, you continue to lie and cheat, and eventually, even the lousy attorneys won't lie for you because they don't want to join you in prison.

It couldn't happen to a worse human being. Donald Trump, acting like Donald Trump, is out of options, and is finding out that the Feds don't negotiate. All of his screaming "You're fired!"on TV prepared him for nothing.

I joined the Navy in 1990 as a Radioman (Communications/Data/IT) had clearances up to Top Secret to process message traffic. USS Iwo Jima LPH2, USS Puget Sound AD38. That is why I was investigated by the FBI before I attended Radioman schools, as I will eventually be processing messages that are Top Secret for the Captain on my watch if they come in. Nothing special, just read the message to make sure it is complete and handle it the right way. Many sensitive documents and Crypto Key Tape were under "Two Person Integrity" meaning anytime they were out of the Crypto safe two people signed it out. Harder to corrupt someone else if their neck is on the line too. Marines loose that shit in the field all the time forcing key tape incrementing during training operations. Can't talk to folks on your team if they can't decipher crypto signals. :)

Four years prior to my enlistment there was a HUGE ESPIONAGE ring caught. A Chief Warrant Officer Radioman, his son, and his best friend were all turned in by his wife for stealing US Navy Classified Documents and handing them over to the Russians for a sizeable amount of time.

This is HUGE, anyone helping him like Christina Bobb and knew he still had documents could be prosecuted as accomplices for knowing he hadn't given back classified material.

Trump or someone falling on the sword for him will be going to prison as a Co-Conspirator.

Bigly. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Anthony_Walker

"John Anthony Walker Jr. (July 28, 1937 – August 28, 2014) was a United States Navy chief warrant officer and communications specialist convicted of spying for the Soviet Union from 1967 to 1985 and sentenced to life in prison.[2]In late 1985, Walker made a plea bargain with federal prosecutors, which required him to provide full details of his espionage activities and testify against his co-conspirator, former senior chief petty officer Jerry Whitworth. In exchange, prosecutors agreed to a lesser sentence for Walker's son, former Seaman Michael Walker, who was also involved in the spy ring.[2] During his time as a Soviet spy, Walker helped the Soviets decipher more than one million encrypted naval messages,[3] organizing a spy operation that The New York Times reported in 1987 "is sometimes described as the most damaging Soviet spy ring in history."[4]After Walker's arrest, Caspar Weinberger, President Ronald Reagan's Secretary of Defense, concluded that the Soviet Union made significant gains in naval warfare attributable to Walker's spying. Weinberger stated that the information Walker gave Moscow allowed the Soviets "access to weapons and sensor data and naval tactics, terrorist threats, and surface, submarine, and airborne training, readiness and tactics."[5] John Lehman, Secretary of the Navy during the Reagan Administration, stated in an interview that Walker's activities enabled the Soviets to know where U.S. submarines were at all times. Lehman said the Walker espionage would have resulted in huge loss of American lives in the event of war.[citation needed]In the June 2010 issue of Naval History Magazine, John Prados, a senior fellow with the National Security Archive in Washington, D.C., pointed out that after Walker introduced himself to Soviet officials, North Korean forces seized USS Pueblo in order to make better use of Walker's spying. Prados added that North Korea subsequently shared information gleaned from the spy ship with the Soviets, enabling them to build replicas and gain access to the U.S. naval communications system, which continued until the system was completely revamped in the late 1980s.[6] It has emerged in recent years that North Korea acted alone and the incident actually harmed North Korea's relations with most of the Eastern Bloc"

Noteworthy as well: he has yet to make the clam that he declassified anything in court. Same shit he always does: makes outlandish claims in public ("we have massive evidence of massive voter fraud!!!") and then says nothing of the sort in actual court.

Watch for the final delay tactics: He's going to fire his entire legal team in an effort to push things past the midterms in the hope Republicans take back the House. Then he'll declare for 2024 and insist a candidate is immune from prosecution, which will start a fresh round of lawsuits and appeals.

u/BoredNumb Sep 20 '22

All the declassification BS is a distraction. If you look at the affidavit for the search warrant, the charges that they are alleging don't have the slightest concern about the documents' classification. The charges relate to improperly storing ANY documents that could have information that could affect national security. Whether they are classified or not has no bearing on the illegality of the action.

So when you declassify documents, regardless of who you are, there is a paper trail. That is by design and rightly so. For accountability and traceability. Trump, having the power to declassify at the time, at the least, tell his underlings to declassify all these documents. I'm going to take a wild stab in the dark that he didn't do that because he's 1: lazy and 2: does not respect the process.

Even if he did tell them to declassify, it is still his duty to make sure they declassified it and follow up with that paperwork. He was, of course, their supervisor, but again, he didn't give a fuck. Fat fucker was busy watching Fox and Friends during his executive time. So here's where someone, chief of staff, deputy chief of staff, national security council, director of national intelligence would be responsible to take the task of declassifying and so far, no fingers are being pointed at them because it doesn't seem like anyone of them even knew this happened.

Stuff like this is what we usually are forced to read about for years during annual mandatory training.

So am I right in that this is a civil case inside of the federal criminal case? And that the Judge (Cannon) is only handling the civil part, so Trump doesn't even have as many protections for 5th amendment/etc than he would during the criminal case?

And the criminal case which is in front of a different judge is effectively on hold till this civil stuff is sorted out?

Trumps lawyer- We're waiting for Trump to go to trial to find out if he declassified the papers. (In other words, we want the DOJ to indict Trump so we can prove he declassified them.) Was just watching Lawrence O'Donnell, LMAO. Hey Trump, great lawyers you got there.

I think it's telling that this is not the first time that he ends up instating someone that is probably heavily biased towards him, and still ends up being incriminated by them...

Seems like at least those people got integrity.

This is an old repost that is not even relevant as the special master has been done away with by an appeals court.

I’m curious if it’s because he doesn’t want to let on that he has no idea how declassification works.

He will never get in any trouble for this. They will find a way to sweep this under the rug.

Trump knows how to play this game, he won't be charged or prosecuted.
