It appears that previously unreleased documents have been unsealed by a judge and show that a large number of the documents in Mar A Lago were sent there by GSA, and potentially held some of the "classified" documentation in them.

Nothing to see here, nothing at all. Doesn't matter what Biden's GSA did, Trump is still a criminal and must be punished because he didn't secure those documents in the trunk of a Corvette in a locked garage.

It shouldn't surprise me, but it does. 

A good reason to overhaul or eliminate the classification law/rules.  Just used as a weapon while stuff that should be classified is conveniently hidden in garages or bathroom servers for financial donors to find.

The classified documents case has now been postponed indefinitely. I guess that little GSA faux pas has made things not so simple for the prosecution.

And a from a rabid Clinton supporter

Quote
    Trump’s cult followers and shameless elected Republicans don’t care that he cheated on his wife with a porn star and paid her $130,000 to keep quiet so he wouldn’t lose the election. They don’t even care if he becomes a convicted felon. But this November the rest of us must.

And a word from a rabid Clinton supporter
Well, if someone is pro gun and they have armed security or carry a gun nobody cares.  If someone is anti-gun and they have armed security then even someone who is entirely pro gun might rightly call them out for their hypocrisy. 

Same idea applies in this case.

Since Republicans at least pay lip service to the idea of family values and marital fidelity as being positive things, it opens them up to having their failure to live up to those ideals pointed out.

FBI CAUGHT STAGING & TAMPERING With Evidence in Trump Raid 'Crime Scene Photo' | Jack Smith JAIL?     - Benny Johnson
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQmTv5pKuBk
Stuff I am hearing lately:

1.  Many of the boxes at Mara Lago were shipped there the year before by the Govt who supposedly wanted to get rid of them.  And were apparently still closed up meaning no one had accessed them.
2.  The "Top Secret" cover sheets seen scattered over the floor in the early photos released weren't in the boxes.  The agents at the raid brought those with them and were using them as book marks, etc.  Not part of the evidence.  Just a photo op. 
3.  Much of the top secret files and boxes were sent to D.C. instead of being kept locally.  Poor tracking of what was there and where it was and if it is still there.

Trial postponed indefinitely from what I am hearing.  I guess Ben posted that yesterday.

From the "It can't be real but it is" files, MSNBC is comparing Stormy Daniels to a nun.

https://youtu.be/cXm6vEpFLuw

Lawrence O'Donnell talks about this wearing a "punch me" smirk. You kinda want Trump to win just for what it will do to MSNBC personalities.

Apparently someone thinks when Orange Man is under a gag order that means everyone connected with him is under a gag order

Quote
    Eric Trump, JD Vance, and now Don Jr., have all violated Trump's gag order today, and have all violated in the same way - attacking Merchan's daughter and attacking Michael Cohen.
    This is being choreographed. It's a sign of desperation. They want a mistrial or some added grounds…

I heard a couple people comment that prior to all this, they assumed Trump slept with that woman.  But after seeing/hearing her testimony, now they think it is likely it didn't happen, that this was all just an extortion scheme to begin with.  I didn't listen to it myself.  Just thought the comments were interesting.

Ran across something earlier today that said that it is looking like the longer this drags on, the more independents and even Democrats are switching to Trump... The more the true believers rant, the more the middle of the road guys jump ship...

Just amazed at the sheer corruption evident in the prosecution, the judge, and a big, big part of the legacy media.
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

Marchan adds another giant PGM to Trump's "verdict will be nuked on appeal" war chest should Trump be found guilty.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trump-witness-nixed-merchans-stringent-rulings-reveals-testimony-would-have-been

TL:DR version... Trump was bringing in a Super Witness, former FEC commissioner Bradley Smith. Marchan, most decidedly not an expert in election law, determined it would be a good idea to restrict what Smith can and can't say about election law during testimony.

Is Marchan actively trying to torpedo the trial? I'm dead serious because it's the only way I can make sense of this.

New FOIA docs are dropping. DOJ authorized use of deadly force for Mar a Lago raid.

That entire case is ridiculous.  Heavily underscores how easily judges will issue search warrants.  Also makes it laughable when LE agencies argue they shouldn't need search warrants.  They are all rubber stamped anyway.  And we also see that federal judges won't punish anyone for exceeding the warrant.

And I saw arguments that the language in this warrant was "Standard Operating Procedure". I would argue that a raid on an ex-President's home, guarded by Secret Service, is anything but SOP.

I would also argue that the rest of us should ignore that it was Trump and look at the fact that deadly force is SOP for document raids for Joe Blow citizen. If your "standard form" calls for a thumbs up on deadly force whether it's a white collar warrant or a gangbanger who murdered people warrant, it's time to revise your SOP. And maybe make a specific form regarding the ATF and dogs.
