Media probably swarming the Press Secretary, like, “What’s Garland going to say?” and Karine responding, “How the fuck should I know? That’s not our department.” And the media just scratching their heads, like, “Didn’t Biden order him to give remarks?”

This is one way to destroy stereotypes. Not the best way, of course.

An OnlyFans model, accused of stabbing her boyfriend to death in Miami on April 3, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with murder, her lawyer confirmed to Yahoo News.

All right, come on. Let’s get this show on the road. I really want this to be a substantive press conference in which we learn stuff that will flatten the conspiratorial know-nothings at NR. “We learned that the former president had disgraced himself by selling classified material to the Russians, and we were forced to act.”

I’m guessing this press conference is about Cincinnatti.

When asked about Trump and Mar-a-Lago, he’ll say “we don’t comment on ongoing investigations.”

meanwhile in the UK:

#JAILED | A wanted car thief who tried using a teddy bear to hide from our neighbourhood cops out looking for him last month has been put behind bars for nine months.

Joshua Dobson (18), from the #Spotland area of the town, was sought by us after stealing a car in May and not paying for fuel that same day.

When we went to arrest him, our officers noticed a large bear breathing in the address before finding Dobson hidden inside!

He’s now stuffed behind bars after being sentenced last week for theft of a motor vehicle, driving while disqualified, and making off from a petrol station without payment.

Hopefully he has a bearable time inside…”

I wonder if the sudden rush from DOJ is a realization that the document Trump says he has in not the ones he actually has. Folder marked “Melanias Christmas plans 2019” actually might contain other more sensitive stuff. He had 4 years to work around security protocols in the WH so who knows what was gathered long before fleeing to Florida after the loss.

Time to call it a day. Tomorrow’s gonna be an interesting day; Trump has until 3 pm Eastern to respond. I’d imagine him and his lawyers are frantically trying to figure out what to do. AG Garland called Trump’s bluff and now Trump can either let this go public, or he can try to fight it - which could look even worse, like he’s desperate to hide something.

Couldn’t happen to a more deserving asshole.

“It’s always what you thought, but worse than you imagined. Agents took 12 more boxes. It wasn’t a break in, Jeanine. They had a warrant and he didn’t cooperate. Cooperating would’ve been handing over all 27 boxes. He kept 12.”
