So, Is Trump's Lawyer Going to Go Down for Lying to the Feds?

At least one lawyer for former President Donald J. Trump signed a written statement in June asserting that all material marked as classified and held in boxes in a storage area at Mr. Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence and club had been returned to the government, four people with knowledge of the document said.

The written declaration was made after a visit on June 3 to Mar-a-Lago by Jay I. Bratt, the top counterintelligence official in the Justice Department’s national security division.

The existence of the signed declaration, which has not previously been reported, is a possible indication that Mr. Trump or his team were not fully forthcoming with federal investigators about the material. And it could help explain why a potential violation of a criminal statute related to obstruction was cited by the department as one basis for seeking the search warrant used to carry out the daylong search of the former president’s home on Monday, an extraordinary step that generated political shock waves.

It also helps to further explain the sequence of events that prompted the Justice Department’s decision to conduct the search after months in which it had tried to resolve the matter through discussions with Mr. Trump and his team.

No doubt, the Trumpists have some new justification for the TOFF's latest lies.

But these lies have consequences, as Martha Stewart has cause to know.

The TOFF may have cellmates.

There are lies and damn lies.

But believing the Drumpf is stupidity.

The song goes they had high hopes...

And no plan at all.

Like he said...he’d “surround myself only with the best and most serious people” ...also: “We want top-of-the-line professionals.”

They all went to clown school. Plenty more running around loose. SCOTUS, Congress, governorships, school boards.

One of the hardest thing in the world is admitting that you've fucked up, worse when you've done it by the numbers in detail. You've gotta be a mensch to face up to it. Alas, nobody in that three ring circus seems to have that stuff.
