Trump & Co Have an Incredibly Bad Day







Context: Earlier this summer Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate was searched.

The Special Master that ended up being appointed by Judge Cannon was someone proposed by Trump's team who is a former FISA judge appointed by Ronald Reagan. The Special Master, the government, and team Trump all met on Tuesday and the special master made it pretty clear he's not here for Trump's bullshit:
