It’s another action-packed week for Serious Trouble! On today’s episode, we talk about former Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg’s plea deal that will send him to Rikers Island for about three months for tax crimes — and won’t involve testifying against Donald Trump personally.
We look at the legal fight over the sealing of the application for the Mar-a-Lago search warrant, and at Trump’s… filing, of sorts, demanding the return of “his” documents and the appointment of a special master to weed out any potentially privileged materials, instead of a taint team that he considers to be tainted. One big problem — he waited two weeks to ask for this, and the taint team might already be done reviewing his files.
Plus, we talk about Trump’s difficulties in retaining A-list legal counsel, and we apologize to a listener for doubting that he’s served on 15 juries in his lifetime. Thank you for your service, Tim!
