Bite me, Musk.

Progressive political commentator (print, radio, podcasts) for years. I post a lot: breaking news + legit info you can use, prone to snark. My mini Australian Labradoodle, Hamilton, has trained me well.

2/ Judge: The court has broad discretion to limit discovery. I am confident you will be able to vigorously prosecute your case w these additional witnesses.
Arlene Delgado: What about Kellyanne Conway? That's a key one
Judge: Mr. Blumetti, will you call her?

Blumetti: I don't rep her. We weren't planning on subpoenaing her
Judge: She was listed in the past, her info may be redundant. If however the defendant does end up calling Ms. Conway as a witness, the court will permit a short deposition.

As I was saying earlier...

Via Norm Ornstein:

I will not miss Mitch as leader. For reasons why, read It's even Worse Than It Looks, and Google Ornstein and McConnell to see us interact. But keep in mind that we will now see Thune, Cornyn and Barrasso vie to replace him-- all by moving further right. Not good.

The AG does NOT interpret Justice Engoron's prohibitions on certain loans as including appellate surety bonds—if can find a bond company to work with him.

Trump to court: "Money? I don't know money. I never said I knew my money. I barely met them. I meet a lot of money, take a lot of photos with money. I don't recall meeting my money."

Sen. Mitch ’s legacy will be that he purposefully undermined America’s first Black president, he broke the Supreme Court, he helped elect a fascist President, and he abetted up an insurrection on American soil.

Forgot the !

🤭👉🏼 “ offered NY appeals court a bond of only $100 mil to pause the more than $450 million penalty he faces in his civil fraud case, a clear sign that the former president lacks the $ to cover the full amount.

..also asked to pause enforcement of finan penalty & wide range of other punishments the judge levied.”
