Ah, but is this what they’ll say later?

Raymond Dearie, the senior US district judge named on Thursday night as the “special master” – or independent arbiter – to vet records seized by the FBI from Donald Trump’s Florida estate has been described as an experienced legal operator who “doesn’t tolerate nonsense” and won’t “play games”.

Imagine – no, go on, imagine – that examines the docs, issues a rebuke to the FBI and asks “WTF were you guys doing?”

No, just imagine.

Will the press still describe him as experienced who doesn’t tolerate nonsense?

  1. As even the bbc mentions the trifling fact that Judge Dearie approved FISA applications to investigate Carter Page as part of the highly politicised Russiagate nonsense I am far from convinced he will prove to be the capable and impartial arbiter the current situation requires.

    One the other hand maybe his first-hand experience of the FBI’s willingness to falsify documents for political purposes will be put to good use.

  2. Once the feds pick a judge, the fix is in.

    Idk why they’re so afraid/angry about Trump, but the US government is determined to reclassify disagreeing with TPTB as terrorism, treason, etc.

    Why are we “allies” with these people again? What do we get out of this arrangement?

    Not having to be “allies” with a worse group of people.

    Or we could be like Switzerland. Neutral and heavily armed…

  5. As for armaments Chernyy, I’d argue that the most important thing is for you to keep your nukes. After all look at Ukraine.

    But I’ve bitched about this before.

  6. Or we could be like Switzerland. Neutral and heavily armed…

    Switzerland is neutral because it doesn’t have much worth taking, and its relative neutrality is convenient to the rich and powerful. It still dances to the tune of the EU even if it isn’t in. It isn’t heavily armed, not even compared to, say, Singapore.

    As for us, we couldn’t afford to effectively go it alone. Taking nukes off the table we’re quite weak, and even our nukes are co-developed with the US.

    Besides, just because Steve is all doom and gloom doesn’t mean that all is doom and gloom.
