Incitement Again

Trump on getting indicted – – Hugh Hewitt radio show yesterday:

DT: I think if it happened, I think you’d have problems in this country the likes of which perhaps we’ve never seen before. I don’t think the people of the United States would stand for it.

HH: What kind of problems, Mr. President.

DT: I think they’d have big problems, big problems. I just don’t think they’d stand for it. They will not, they will not sit still and stand for this ultimate of hoaxes

  1. the judge responds accordingly (in order i guess to avert another riot at the capitol or in the streets per lil lindsey)

    Judge denies DOJ request for stay in investigation of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago docs – ABC News

    U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon on Thursday denied the Department of Justice’s request for a partial stay of her ruling that limited the government’s investigation of how Donald Trump handled sensitive material at his Mar-a-Lago estate, pending a third-party review of what agents found at Trump’s home.
    Cannon, in issuing her order, said that she was not willing to accept the government’s assertions that roughly 100 documents taken from Mar-a-Lago were classified — even though they were labeled as such, with some bearing “SECRET” and “TOP SECRET/SCI” markings.
    Cannon appointed Raymond Dearie, senior district judge for the Eastern District of New York, as special master to help her resolve the matter. (Earlier this week, the DOJ wrote in court papers that it did not object to to Dearie, who was suggested by Trump’s legal team.)
    “The Court does not find it appropriate to accept the Government’s conclusions on these important and disputed issues without further review by a neutral third party in an expedited and orderly fashion,” Cannon wrote in her order.
    She approached with heavy skepticism the DOJ’s arguments about the documents with classified markings and the government’s claims that Trump has no right to the materials at all.
    […]
    In appointing Dearie as special master, Cannon urged him to “prioritize review” of the roughly 100 documents with classification markings and asked him to complete his review of all the documents by Nov. 30, more than a month beyond what the DOJ had called for.
    Her order further directs Dearie that he will make recommendations to her regarding any assertions of executive privilege by Trump, though he hasn’t officially made any.
    Many legal scholars question whether a former government official, even a president, can claim privilege over classified documents once they are no longer in office — and over the determination made by the current president, in this case Joe Biden.
    […]
    In her Thursday order, Cannon offered more clarity about her initial ruling, which will allow the government to move forward in a number of key areas. While the DOJ cannot — at this point — use the seized documents before a grand jury or interview witnesses about their content, the judge will allow the government to investigate how the documents were stored and who may have had access to them, including talking to witnesses.
    Cannon also ruled that federal investigators are not precluded from briefing congressional leaders on the seized materials and that the DOJ can continue to work with intelligence officials on their damage assessment without being in violation of her order.
    […]
    The DOJ has separately appealed the entirety of Cannon’s ruling to the 11th Circuit, which appointed the special master.
    As that process is worked through, the government has not objected to handing over any non-classified documents or other potentially personal materials to a special master for review.

  2. soooo

    if it looks like a duck – IOW stamped “classified”

    sounds like a duck –  IOW talks about nukes

    and walks like a duck – IOW hidden away or passed on to enemies

    it’s NOT a duck?

     

  3. trevor last night

    Sep 15, 2022 The founder of Patagonia donates his $3 billion company, Ron DeSantis sends migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, “The Little Mermaid” trailer sparks racist criticism, Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver gets suspended for a year, and a cheating scandal rocks the chess world.

    Marjorie Taylor Greene kicks Gen-Z activist, video appears to show – The Washington Post

    Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) appeared to kick an unarmed demonstrator during a confrontation outside the Capitol on Thursday afternoon.
    Videos posted to Twitter by Greene and the Gen Z activist group Voters of Tomorrow show Greene leaving a news conference while being questioned by activists about gun violence. As Greene approaches a crosswalk, she appears to kick one of the activists, who was walking in front of her.
    “Excuse me,” Greene says while at first appearing to step on demonstrator Marianna Pecora’s foot.
    “Excuse me,” Greene says again, this time after appearing to intentionally draw back her foot and aim for Pecora’s leg.
    “Oh my God,” Pecora, 18, is seen saying in the videos.

  5. In a stunning statement at the end of Judge’s ruling she calls Trump deserving of special consideration as former president, in other words above the law.

    That violates her oath to treat all parties equally. 

  6. suggestion to local attys based on this from above ABC link:

    Cannon, in issuing her order, said that she was not willing to accept the government’s assertions that roughly 100 documents taken from Mar-a-Lago were classified — even though they were labeled as such, with some bearing “SECRET” and “TOP SECRET/SCI” markings.

    in your next traffic case, argue on behalf of your client who ran a stop sign that the judge should not be willing to accept on its face the government’s assertion that it is a stop sign even though the sign in question was red and had STOP on it. ask for a special master and make sure the state/county/city pays for it.

  7. i smell another bernie madoff case in the making for the disgraced grifting former guy

    Axios:

    The chair of the Jan. 6 select committee on Thursday said the panel may make referrals to agencies other than the Justice Department, citing the Federal Election Commission as a potential recipient.
    Why it matters: In the panel’s second public hearing, Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) highlighted Trump campaign fundraising emails,” but instead went to Trump’s political groups.
    Lofgren said at the time Trump “intentionally misled his donors, asked them to donate to a fund that didn’t exist and used the money raised for something other than what he said,” but added “it’s for someone else to decide whether that’s criminal or not.”
    What they’re saying: “I think we will still make referrals [to the DOJ] if they warrant. But, you know, we could be making referrals to other agencies that are not criminal in nature,” Committee Chair Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) said Thursday.
    “FEC would be a good possibility, because obviously we looked seriously at some of the fundraising that went on around Jan. 6.”
    Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) said the committee’s final report aims to “be comprehensive in setting forth both the kinds of violations we saw, and the kinds of things we think should be legal violations, but … are not.”

  8. Politico’s incitement article is worth the read. It ties Dumbass’s comments and Lindsey’s together. A summary of the message between the lines: 

    Proud Boys and Oath Keepers get ready stand up and go forward. I’ll pardon you. 

    I’ll never forgive McConnell and Dumbass and their respective ilks for fucking up a perfectly good country.

  9. Hey thanks for the Bday wishes!
     
    patd…  the repubs here in NH voted for their best loony to go up against Maggie Hassan for the US senate.  It was helped along by the Dems.  They had a running ad against the more moderate candidate that Governor Sunnunu wanted.
     
    And speaking of OldSeaHag… she messaged me on FB last night that Tony is finally home from the hospital.

  10. Cannon’s ruling is utter nonsense – if the appeal route was not the 11th Circuit it would have the shelf life of a fart in the wind (apologies for the mixed metaphor).
     
    Alexandra Petri on the emergency Billionaires Club meeting prompted by Yvon Chouinard’s moves wit Patagonia this week.

    ***

    10:19 a.m.: The main subject of the meeting, persuading Mr. Chouinard to do something else with his money than donate his entire company to a trust and nonprofit dedicated to fighting climate change, is raised. Suggestions:

    Invite him aboard yachts. This will change his mind! Mr. Zuckerberg emphatically says, “We should do a yacht party! I’ll bring the VR goggles!” No takers. It is agreed to put a pin in the yacht concept.
    Bring him to space on the best and fastest space vehicle possible. Some disagreement as to which vehicle this is that becomes increasingly heated.
    Charlie Munger suggests that instead of fighting climate change, he could “donate a really big building to a college with no windows that thumbs its nose at the fire code, let that fire code know who is boss, really sock it to the fire code.”

    Do the Billionaires’ Handshake many times over. [N.B. The Billionaires’ Handshake is when you wave 65 $100 bills at each other and then light them on fire.]
    Settle sexual misconduct claims.
    Join the climate change fight, but on the other side,against the climate,by way of corporate carbon output and one’s own personal emissions.

    10:31 a.m.: General agreement that this planet is a trash heap anyway and good for little besides flying over it in a spacecraft. Who would want to invest resources in a world where some people are without clean water and food and have to bankrupt themselves to receive medical care? Any effort to preserve this place for more miserable generations would be a waste of energy better used making phones smaller and then bigger again just because. Money is simply best spent on oneself, or really anything other than ending world hunger. If nothing else, just sit on it and let it accumulate.

  13. Alaska braces for “near worst case coastal flooding scenario” as massive storm may bring worst flooding in nearly 50 years

    Alaska is bracing for dangerous weather as the remnants of Typhoon Merbok move toward the Bering Sea region. Forecasters predict that the storm, set to hit on Friday, could bring “potentially historical” flooding, with some coastal areas seeing water levels up to 11 feet higher than the normal high tide. 
    “Latest models show coastal surge higher than the November 2011 storm that brought significant flooding to the area,” the National Weather Service forecasted early Friday morning, adding that the flooding could be “potentially historical.”

  14. Lindsey Graham said Trump ‘could kill fifty people on our side and it wouldn’t matter’ to GOP voters: new book – Raw Story

    A new book from reporters Peter Baker and Susan Glasser quotes Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) as backing up former President Donald Trump’s get away with murder and Republican voters would still support him.
    The Independent has obtained a copy of Baker and Glasser’s new book, called “The Divider,” and has found that Graham told them during Trump’s first impeachment trial that there was very little anyone could do to dislodge Trump as the leader of the GOP, no matter how many crimes or misdeeds he committed.
    “He could kill fifty people on our side and it wouldn’t matter,” Graham explained.
    The South Carolina senator also let Glasser and Baker know that he wasn’t blind to some of the twice-impeached former president’s shortcomings, as he also described Trump as a “lying motherf*cker” who was nonetheless “a lot of fun to hang out with.”

  15. the hill also had a bit from the book

    Former President Trump suggested to his aides that the United States could trade Puerto Rico to Denmark for Greenland while he was president, according to a new book from two reporters. 
    The New York Times journalist Peter Baker and The New Yorker magazine journalist Susan Glasser revealed in their book, “The Divider: Trump in the White House, 2017-2021,” that Trump’s plan to buy Greenland came from Ronald Lauder, a New York cosmetics heir who had known Trump since college. 
    […]
    Reports in 2019 revealed Trump’s interest in purchasing Greenland, an autonomous Danish territory, and that some of his advisers supported it while others dismissed it as a fascination. 
    John Bolton, who was serving as national security adviser at the time, directed his aide Fiona Hill to form a team to consider ideas to acquire Greenland, Baker reported. Bolton believed increasing U.S. presence in Greenland made sense to oppose Chinese influence in the Arctic region, but buying it outright was not feasible. 
    Trump continued to press for acquiring the island, the world’s largest, suggesting that the U.S. take federal money away from Puerto Rico to buy Greenland or trade the two islands. 
    Trump said in an interview for the book that the idea to buy Greenland was his own idea. 
    “I love maps. And I always said: ‘Look at the size of this. It’s massive. That should be part of the United States,’” Trump reportedly said.
    Denmark’s prime minister rejected the idea of selling Greenland to the U.S., calling it “absurd.” 
    […]
    A former Department of Homeland Security official said in 2020 that Trump called Puerto Rico “dirty” and asked to trade it for Greenland after officials visited the island following the hurricane.

    “But when fearful leaders remain silent, or tacitly embrace conspiracy theories, it only reenforces them, creating an unwholesome feedback loop of misinformation. This is the reality of today’s Republican Party.”

    Lest the far’ters think they’ll be pardoned for another attempt at overthrowing the government, LP should make an ad showing the insurrectionists who destroyed their lives and who are now doing time.

  17. Beto is still trailing Greg Abutt by 5 points.  The big issue seems to be the border…but only because of the inhumane stunt he (and DuhSantis) keep pulling by bussing migrants elsewhere.   That is where the GQP wants the attention; in the (mostly) brown people at the border.  Republicans don’t want the focus on abortion or guns.  I hope folks are paying attention to where they don’t want us to be focused.
