am admitted baffled by the cannon ruling. ... gonna repeat how this does not require a lawyer to spot the stoopid. seriously, just consider what the judge is suggesting. the 100 or so documents clear marked classified, secret and top secret requires a special master to determine if they is in fact the property o' the former President o' the United States and should be returned to trump's possession. wut? for crying out loud, the doj had offered picture evidence to the public so as to disabuse persons o' the notion it is possible to confuse rando trump papers with what is so painful obvious the property o' the United States of America. even if trump had declassified the documents in question, they would remain GOVERNMENT documents and should be returned to the national archives and/or relevant security facilities. the suggestion by the judge that the presidential records act or attorney client privilege need be considered by a special master in his deliberations to answer the undecided factual and legal questions o' whether the pictured documents need be returned to trump is beyond the pale and complete illogical. for chrissakes, judge cannon unwitting undermines her own ruling and simultaneous creates a pointless delay by recognizing that trump's attorneys need be achieving the proper clearance to even view the documents in question, clearance which the trump lawyers don't current have, nor did they have when they somehow imbued the marked documents with attorney-client privileges. note how judge cannon did not leave such a requirement up to the special master. clearly judge cannon did not need a special master's input to recognize the security classification markings on the documents pictured, eh? the ruling by judge cannon has us channeling andy dufresne. once again, so is clear, under no circumstances does the clear marked classified, secret and top secret documents go back to trump's possession, 'cause those documents, regardless o' whether or not trump declassified, is so obvious and irrefutable the property o' the United States of America and not the former potus. there is no relevant legal or factual question a special master needs consider in the current scenario. ... am thinking is obvious the doj appeals and requests an emergency stay, and am seeing no way the 11th circuit (fed covering georgia, alabama and florida) fails to grant doj request, unless is some serious funny business going on behind the scenes am not privy to. is always possible for a single district judge to be horribly wrong or possibly just so chicken sh!te they will befoul themselves in an effort to avoid personal responsibility, but if the appellate court were to agree with cannon we would need consider the possibility o' a successful infiltration o' pod people, or a commander remmick situation from trek. HA! Good Fun!
