Trump’s Legal Team Scrambles to Find an Argument


On May 25, one of former President Donald J. Trump’s lawyers sent a letter to a top Justice Department official, laying out the argument that his client had done nothing illegal by holding onto a trove of government materials when he left the White House.
The letter, from M. Evan Corcoran, a former federal prosecutor, represented Mr. Trump’s initial defense against the investigation into the presence of highly classified documents in unsecured locations at his members-only club and residence, Mar-a-Lago. It amounted to a three-page hodgepodge of contested legal theories, including Mr. Corcoran’s assertion that Mr. Trump possessed a nearly boundless right as president to declassify materials and an argument that one law governing the handling of classified documents does not apply to a president.
Mr. Corcoran asked the Justice Department to present the letter as “exculpatory” information to the grand jury investigating the case.

Government lawyers found it deeply puzzling. They included it in the affidavit submitted to a federal magistrate in Florida in their request for the search warrant they later used to recover even more classified materials at Mar-a-Lago — to demonstrate their willingness to acknowledge Mr. Corcoran’s arguments, a person with knowledge of the decision said.

As the partial release of the search warrant affidavit on Friday, including the May 25 letter, illustrated, Mr. Trump is going into the battle over the documents with a hastily assembled team. The lawyers have offered up a variety of arguments on his behalf that have yet to do much to fend off a Justice Department that has adopted a determined, focused and so far largely successful legal approach.
“He needs a quarterback who’s a real lawyer,” said David I. Schoen, a lawyer who defended Mr. Trump in his second Senate impeachment trial. Mr. Schoen called it “an honor” to represent Mr. Trump, but said it was problematic to keep lawyers “rotating in and out.”

Democrats are in charge, lefties own almost every source of information available to the public
Given that Murdoch owns Faux and the WSJ, not to mention the existence of a plethora of conservative newspapers around the country, right wing talk radio, and a myriad of right wing websites, your claim is ridiculous. If not for the RWM outlets spewing lies 24/7 how do you account for so many MAGAnuts on this board regurgitating them all day every day?

Here we go again. Democrats are in charge, lefties own almost every source of information available to the public and they still whine about the unfairness of it all. "Republicans are muddying the water", waah waah. What a bunch.
This is flat out not true, Go look up ownership of All media that has a large audience, you will be surprised.

The DemNazi 4th Reich is opposed by Patriotic Freedom Loving Americans Every Day.

Do you think we are just going to lay down The Republic and let you Overthrow Our Democracy with out a fight you AntiSemite, Nazi, Hair Sniffing Propagandist Dupe?


  • We fought you and your Operation Russian Collusion Crossfire Hurricane COUP
  • We stood together to resist your Evil and False Allegations against a Democratically Elected President when you tried to falsely impeach him two times.
  • We resisted your BLM ANTIFA Brown Shirt Krystalnacht Riots
  • We defended The Police when you mercilessly attacked them, killed them, and destroyed police cruisers while shouting "What do we want, Dead Cops! "When do we want it? Right now!" & "Pigs in a Blanket, Fry Em Like Bacon"!
  • We fought your DemNazi weaponization of The IRS and Lois Lerner and the Magic Marxist Obama Bin Lying.
  • We are resisting your Alphabet Pedo Hair Sniffing Grooming Lobby even when you target loving Soccer Moms and call them Terrorists
  • We pushed back against your Propaganda and your Censorship and your Cancel Culture when you try to silence us and created our own Social Media Platforms.
  • We fought against your Dr. Mengle DemNazi experiments on humans when you, Fauci and Obama tried to make Normal American Life Extinct and replace it with your EVIL NEW NORMAL.
  • We refused to believe your lies about COVID when you illegally changed our election laws to install a senile diaper shitting puppet fool owned by Globalist Elitist, China, Russia, Iran and North Korea. Faux Joe is a lifetime sell out and opportunist whose only notable accomplishments in his lack luster career is his perfecting Graft, Greed, Extortion and Bribery schemes to enrich himself and his family.
  • We refuse to trust a weaponized corrupt and politically driven SS Stormtroopers formerly known as The FBI when they are used as Biden's and The Deep State Globalists' personal Nazi Army whose only mission is to attack and destroy and politically damage Conservatives.

We will fight you in the streets.
We will fight you on the beaches
We will fight you in the the plains, the hills and valleys.

We shall never surrender!

Agreed. The unanimity with which they parrot the disinformation they've been fed tells the story.
