Trump is so dumb and his political instincts such a grunt, that the idea that his MAGA appointed judge handling the NARAlago raid would grant him a Special Master is a serious red flag. There is a good chance that somehow, someway the granting of a Special Master will be how Trump escapes on both a political and criminal basis.
I say this because Trump was so late in asking for a Special Master that ostensibly the whole issue is moot — the FBI has used it’s own taint team to look through the files and sort everything out. So, the judges’ granting of a Special Master seems like shenanigans. Something that we’ll look back upon and says, “Well, we should have known that Trump would escape again.”
And even if you’re charitable and give the Trump-appointed the benefit of the doubt and say she’s giving Trump his Special Master because she’s afraid he’ll turn on her and sick the MAGA hordes on her — that’s pretty dark, too.
All of this is yet another sign that Trump is above the law and we have the existential choice of autocracy or civil war in 2024 – 2025. It definitely looks as though Trump is going to escape yet again and be the 2024 Republican nominee. Either he starts a civil war because he brazenly steals the 2024 election or his agenda for is second term is so radical that states like California start heading for the doors.
Regardless, as I keep saying, the United States as we know it now is either going to fade away into autocracy or we’re going to have a massive reset that will be something akin to a reactionary MAGA “revolution” or civil war.
