Judge Ray Dearie, the special master that Trump wanted to oversee the ongoing document investigation, has run out of patience with Trump’s lawyers, and now he’s putting them to the test. In filings this week, Dearie demanded that Trump’s lawyers not only provide evidence that he declassified documents, but also evidence that any of the documents were planted by the FBI. He’s trying to see if the lawyers will lie in court, as Farron Cousins explains.

From the outset. I was never that concerned about Donald Trump winning that court case and getting the special master appointed to his case. I didn’t think it was gonna have any real impact on it other than possibly delaying the investigation a little bit. Well, it turns out my lack of fear has been vindicated because this special master that Donald Trump picked himself, he and his legal team, judge Ray deer is absolutely sick and tired. It appears of Donald Trump and his legal team. And he is now putting them to the test to see if they will lie in a federal court filing because Raymond de understands what I have been preaching to you for several weeks now. And that is Donald Trump. And even some of his lawyers has have made, you know, broad, broad, extraordinary claims in the media, but they have not once made these claims in a single court filing.
And those claims that de in a court filing this past week told the, the Trump lawyers give me the evidence of this. The first claim is that Trump declassified the documents and you gotta come with something a little stronger than he just thought really hard with his mind. And they were suddenly declassified, as he claimed on Sean Hannity, that ain’t gonna cut it. The judge wants real hard paper evidence that these documents were declassified. The second thing he asked for evidence of is go ahead and gimme evidence. Since you’re all claiming that the FBI planted some of these documents there, I need that evidence to go ahead. What are you waiting for? He is basically baiting them, right? This is so freaking brilliant. And I love that this is the guy Trump picked and he is sitting there. So curmudgeonly, I love it. Just saying like, go ahead, come on.
You say, you’ve got this stuff, give it to me. Let me see it right now. Put it all out in front of me in court, put it in an official filing. Sign your name to that legal document, swearing that this is real. Do it. I mean, he is absolutely go them into lying in court or admitting they’ve been lying in the media. This guy’s good. Now I may come to regret saying that at some point I’ll fully admit that he may do some stuff that I’m not gonna like, but as of right now, what judge deer has done as special master is honestly probably better than not having a special master. You know, as I started a segment the other day with that George Bernard Shaw Shaw quote, you know, there’s two great tragedies in life. One is not getting the heart’s desire. The other is getting it. And Donald Trump got exactly what he wanted and it is biting him on his behind harder than any wild
Animal ever could. And I love every second of this because this is what he deserves. You wanted this and you wanted this guy to be this thing, and now you got it. And it turns out he’s a no nonsense, no BS kind of guy. That’s looking at all this saying, you guys are making radical claims left and right everywhere, but you haven’t made ’em in court. And by the way, business insider, as well as a couple other articles have finally started pointing that out again. I’ve been saying it for weeks and just in the last two or three days, the rest of the media has started saying, well, they’re not making those claims in court. So maybe we shouldn’t. Yeah. If y’all tuned in every now and then you’d have known that several weeks ago and you could have been one of the first to nationally report it.
But either way, judge deer is doing a great job. So we will see if Donald Trump’s lawyers can back up the claims that the FBI plant evidence or if they can back up the claims that he declassified them. Because if they can’t dairy has already indicated that if you can’t prove these things, I’m out, I’m done. You don’t even need a special master. And then they’re really screwed, cuz not only will he have blown up their biggest legal defense, but they won’t have dairy around to delay this investigation anymore. Not that that even matters because the 11th circuit court of appeals with two Trump judges on the panel already told the DOJ, you can keep looking through the documents mostly because Trump’s lawyers haven’t been able to back up any of the claims that Trump has been making in the media.
