On another Substac I have several times commented on the libs pissing and moaning about Garland doing nothing or going too slow. My comment has been that it is easy to comment from the couch and that doing it right is better than doing it fast.

My imagination runs away with me when I think about what the dullest, most intellectually stunted, and uncurious man-child to occupy the office of President did while he had documents labeled TS/SCI. Personally I suspect that the Saudis didn't cough up $2 billion to Jared Kushner because he's a good risk. Similarly, they didn't make a stop on the "Bonesaw Tour" at Bedminster because it's prestigious.

As to serving Graham his serving of crow South Carolina style, my preference would be to shove a live crow down his throat.

TC - Facts don't change but they do eventually emerge.

Also, you wrote: "The inventory list reveals that some of the classified documents removed were marked with the top classification of TS/SCI. There is no way any president has any authority to remove such documents from the secure installation where they are stored."

It's worth reminding readers that, despite tfg claims that he declassified all of the Classified material he took to Mar-a-Lago (ignoring, of course, that he had no legal right to take anything whether or not Classified), that there are procedures for declassification and that certain highly Classified documents cannot be declassified by the president or at all. It's not at all like signing an Executive Order.

"The scandal isn’t that federal agents went to Mar-a-Lago to retrieve government documents from Trump. The scandal is that they had to."

That sums it up!!! TY, TC!

TC,

I think most of us who are substackers have been impatient with AG Garland. We, in our collective wisdom, would have busted TFG long ago.

But here we have a wise old judge pursuing justice with experience and brilliance. Kudos to him.

Well done TC. Add my apologies to the list going to AG Garland.

As for me, I'm having A1 sauce with my crow this weekend.

It's too late to comment other than to say, thank you. I was glued to MSNBC yesterday and failed to complete my usual reading "assignments"!

Thanks for this, TC. I wonder what spin the chowderheads will put on this.

TC, you’re so right about the silence by the trumpers while a story is being concocted to make trump look good or the victim. The silence is creepy.
