In case this is news to you:

U.S. District Judge Aileen M. Cannon, who was appointed by Trump, ordered a special master to review the White House documents and temporarily blocked the DOJ from reviewing them until the special masterís work is complete, though she did allow the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) to continue its review of whether the documents posed a national security risk by being at Mar-A-Lago.

    Andrew McCarthy is a former US Attorney. He's a right-wing media go-to source on legal issues, though he often doesn't say what GOPs want to hear. He's not a Teri. He's academic and judicial...and, as a GOP, he's as anti-Trump as you can image:

    Andy McCarthy: Trump special master victory a potential 'explosive ruling' if it holds

    *****

    ANDY MCCARTHY:†Itís a big win for the Trump team and a†potentially explosive ruling†if it holds. I would imagine itís important enough that the government will appeal this immediately. In a nutshell, what happened here is the Justice Department assumed that Trump only had attorney-client privilege, that he did not have executive privilege, or at least to the limited extent that as a former president he maintains executive privilege, it canít be asserted against the executive branch itself. It's one thing for the government to have that theory, I think it actually may be a sound theory. The problem is itís not 100% settled, so I thought it was incumbent on them to get a ruling from the court on that question before they hauled off did what they did, which was have the privilege team go through all the seized documents assuming that Trump only had attorney-client privilege and then allowing all of the potentially executive privileged documents to go to the prosecution team.†


    When pb avoids ideologues in attempting to understand legal issues, he turns to Jonathan Turley, Alan Derschowitz and Andrew McCarthy.

    This is a trustworthy, informed take.

    So honestly, the case is in limbo until one guy makes a decision on every document taken. And the judge must feel there is enough for a need for due diligence.

    OD,

    My guess is that the truth about the search will start to become apparent. If it's embarrassing to the DOJ and federales, and I suspect that it will, do you think our TDSers will own it?
