    There's something poetic about Trump essentially being brought down by a porn star

    I'm sorry officer, but I think I should be able to go through my glove box first and decide what shouldn't be subject to search and seizure.

    I like this part, especially the bold. It's right up there with the claim of the president being incapable of obstructing justice because he's the highest authority in the US (paraphrasing). It always amounts to some inane argument as to why Trump and his associates shouldn't be accountable for their behavior.

    Claims no DOJ team would be able to sort through the evidence fairly so he should do it.

    Wish i got to review my own evidence before it was sorted through.

    The DOJ needs to come up with something better than “taint team.”

    Also, I think the best that Trump can hope for is a Special Master.

    "Making the rules up as we go along" is a pretty good way to look at this administration... and the USA as a whole imo.

    There are no rules. Just privileged people who tell us what we can and cant do.

    What's precedent here if the case did not involve a sitting president?

    If files from a lawyer about a case you were on were seized, would you get a chance to review (not tamper or block) and see for yourself what documents were seized?

    There's something hypocritical about the fact that he's not already finished.

    His reputation is destroyed. Which is almost incredible since he didn't have a good rep to start with.
    He'll be remembered as the most notorious, controversial president in history.

    This response would be completely the opposite if it would be someone you supported requested this. Any actual lawyer would request this on behalf of their client showing once again what a biased fraud you are.

    Question: would such an action usually be accompanied by a full scale assault on the reputation of law enforcement agencies?

    Due process is due process, you moron. No, I would not define it differently for a different person. Suspects in ongoing investigations are never allowed to access materials related to them to try and preempt the investigation.

    "Any actual lawyer" would do that if/when their client is paying them premium fees to try every last desperate thing to try and stop up the process.

    lol @ you thinking this was the independent legal judgment of his counsel. No, no "actual lawyer" would recommend this course of conduct, since it is objectively without merit and a complete waste of time.

    Guess we’ll find out when Judge Wood (heh) renders her decision today. Could be interesting. If she sides with Trump and Cohen that the warrant was basically an overreach and they took things they shouldn’t have I could see that turning into the axe falling on Rosenstein for signing off on the warrant.

    Meh, I suspect this will be another round of nothing. Honestly, what does everyone think is in those files? I'm sure his lawyer isn't dumb.
