As the excitement builds: The question for the day is this:
Will Donald J. Trump allow the materials to be released by the magistrate judge? As of last night, he was suggesting that that would be his wish.
Or will he allow himself to be overruled by his super-cautious lawyers? Will he play the silly old trick where the cautious lawyers manage to hold the eager client back?
If something embarrassing or potentially incriminating appears on the list of items removed from Mar-a-Lago, will Donald J. Trump say it was planted? Please remember this:
He only took the fifth this week because he finally saw that all the unfairness, and all the fake news, meant that he basically had to!
For extra credit only: If someone says that something was planted, is there any actual way to prove that the person's statement is false?
(Putting it a different way: How much of what we accept as true is based upon the question of who we trust?)
