Was Warned to Return Records to Archives, Unsealed Documents Say

“Whatever you have, give everything back — let them come here & get everything,” the unnamed associate told Trump, acc/to an interview the person gave the FBI “Don’t give them a noble reason to indict you, because they will.”

: a little scrambly Ramone for your consideration…

(yes, w/an “e” at the end; for the band “Ramones” whose members all took the surname … Ramone. 😢 that needs to be said, I guess I’m old.)

“No Mall Would Hire Trump”
new ad has an actor say he’s facing ’s current charges while applying for jobs at the local mall.

I’m currently facing 88

Do you all take people that have been found liable for ?

... falstiying business records?

… trying to overturn the 2020 election?

for retention of classified information?

I was wondering if that was gonna be a problem?

“…Dino the ? during my time at… , the ’s parent co, I was one of the editors pushing our reporters to confirm that story. ’s fitness columns were published only after I instructed a colleague…to put them together. These were all pretty normal things to do during…a bizarre period at AMI, when it was allegedly enlisted — in some ways that I saw & in others that I didn’t — into the service of helping become president.”

This was really early Sat + this little one needs to be fed every 2hrs which takes about an hour so we were both crazy sleepy leading to:

a. Ramone basically sleep drinking

b. Me calling “Pedialyte” “Prilosec” I don’t use either, but my TV/radio consumption is mostly news, whose ads target an older demographic meaning I hear ads for heartburn, arthritis, ED, heart disease; guess it crept into my subconscious vocab.

Also this was right before I could tell she was a he.

Ok More cuteness, this one features:

a. My dog’s hilariously sonorous snoring in the background

b. A glorious dump by Ramone, my reaction 🤷🏼‍♀️

c. My trembling hands are a PSA for just one reason you shouldn’t use your smartphone too much (I mean I’ve also been handling a baby squirrel & the requisite tiny hand held equipment constantly, besides just having arthritis, & using a computer a lot, my hands are a wreck.)

Alright, who’s ready to see get his just deserts? He fucked up the whole damn world & that’s not an overstatement.

PS & I had a lovely weekend. It’s as boy! (He’s developed discernible - stuff)
He is doing quite well! Name: “Ramone” because he’s a sweet little punk rocker.

” is a term coined by old-time editors for buying the exclusive rights to stories, or “catching” them, for the specific purpose of ensuring the info never becomes public.

In the world of , where ethical lines are blurry, deciding what to publish & why is often a calculus that covers doled out & called in.

The people called the first & was sworn in.

of The National Enquirer, was part of the that described in his opening statement, w/ & .

Prosecutor Joshua questioned Pecker. He began by asking him basic biographical information.

At that point, stopped testimony, to ask jurors if they'd like writing materials to take notes. At least 10 raise their hands.

@Nonilex@masto.ai avatar

Questioning resumed.

says of his time at The : "We used checkbook , & we paid for stories.”

asked him whether he had "final say" over editorial decisions. Pecker said anything >$10k had to be approved by him.

Pecker said in his experience, the only thing that's important "is the cover" of a magazine.

#Steinglass asked #Pecker to recount his work cell phone number at the time.

That may seem small but it's important — it's a good bet that those numbers will come up when #evidence is presented.

#Trump leaned forward on the defense table as he listened to Pecker's testimony. As Pecker spoke about editor meetings, Trump passed notes to 2 of his lawyers before reportedly “glaring” at Pecker on the stand.

described the types of people typically use as sources: hotel workers, limo drivers, lawyers, etc.

's lawyers have tried to depict the # as a media company like any other. But Pecker's testimony that they practiced “," & his description of their editorial practices, undermines that argument.

After a short , was dismissed from the stand. He’ll be back tomorrow.

Justice told jurors about the schedule & asked them not to discuss the case w/ anyone & not to read about it. He asked them to put it out of their minds.

Here’s a sampling of covers leading up to the 2016 presidential election:

Remember the twitter hashtag?

Nonilex,
@Nonilex@masto.ai avatar

it’s like testified today, only the covers mattered. wasn’t paying for the ’s in-depth-articles, but the covers. Ever stood in a checkout line at the grocery? Unless you live in 1 of the major cities in the US (NYC, Chicago, SanFrancisco, LA, Boston, etc - even some of those) in 2016, those covers were screaming at you while you waited in line w/nothing to do. + 2016 was b4 AmazonFresh & all the grocery deliveries that sprung up bc of COVID.

@jwfell given the MAGA mind we’ve all been exposed to over the last 8 years, I wouldn’t assume that the average American thinks the way you do.
