The latest claims by attorneys representing former President Donald Trump were called into question on Wednesday following a filing before Special Master Raymond Dearie.
Trump's lawyers claim they had difficulty obtaining a document vendor due to the massive breadth of the documents in question.
"The problem is compounded by the fact that when Plaintiff’s counsel referred to either 11,000 pages or even 11,000 documents during the status conference (we are still awaiting the transcript), the Government chose not to interject with an accurate number. In conversations between Plaintiff’s counsel and the Government regarding a data vendor, the Government mentioned that the 11,000 documents contain closer to 200,000 pages," Trump's lawyers claimed.
The filing was signed by James Trusty and included the names of Lindsey Halligan and Evan Corcoran. Attorney Chris Kise's name was not on the document.
MSNBC legal analyst Lisa Rubin questioned whether the math added up in a thread posted to Twitter.
"As a former BigLaw litigator who participated in and managed doc reviews, I know that bankers’ boxes are generally thought to hold 2,000 pages each. And most of what the FBI took was in the form of 27 boxes of roughly that size," Rubin wrote. "So I’ll be curious to see whether DOJ disputes Team Trump’s characterization of the volume here."
Rubin said that the filing also points to the fact that Trump's legal team is seriously understaffed for the task at hand.
"But don’t be distracted from the real issue: A guy who pays a $3 million retention to one of 4 lawyers of record should be able to find plenty of worker-bee lawyers to actually conduct the privilege review," she writes. "The issue is not the people hours; it’s the people (or lack thereof)."
On Wednesday, The Daily Beast reported that Perry Greene, the husband of far-right Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), has filed for divorce.
"The petition stated that the Greenes’ 27-year marriage was 'irretrievably broken' and indicated that the couple, who wed in college, had been separated for some time," reported A.J. McDougall. "Perry Greene motioned to have the divorce filed under seal, arguing 'that the record will contain sensitive personal and financial information, the public disclosure of which would negatively impact the parties’ privacy interests.'"
The congresswoman provided a statement on the matter to The Daily Beast, which declined to reveal any further details of the divorce other than that to suggest the marriage was ending amicably.
“Marriage is a wonderful thing and I’m a firm believer in it," said the statement. "Our society is formed by a husband and wife creating a family to nurture and protect. Together, Perry and I formed our family and raised three great kids. He gave me the best job title you can ever earn: Mom. I’ll always be grateful for how great of a dad he is to our children. This is a private and personal matter and I ask that the media respect our privacy at this time."
'I'm sorry you're confused': Dem Arizona AG candidate mocks Trump-backed rival's knowledge of state constitution
Abortion quickly took center stage in Tuesday's attorney general debate in Arizona between Republican Abe Hamadeh and Democrat Kris Mayes.
Abortion rights became a major issue in Arizona after a judge reinstated a Civil War-era anti-abortion law last week.
Hamadeh said he would enforce Arizona's controversial abortion bans, while Mayes argued they violated the state Constitution.
"Unfortunately, Abe, you forgot to read the Arizona Constitution, the highest law," Mayes said. "The Arizona Constitution has within it Article 2, Section 8, an express right to privacy."
"Look, I think my opponent just admitted that he thinks it's ok to ban all abortions in the state of Arizona under a law that dates to 1864," she charged. "Let's remember, that was the Civil War. It was a time when women couldn't even vote and women are going to die. Women and girls are going to die because of this 1901 law and people like my opponent and Mark Brnovich are forcing it on women of the state of Arizona."
"I will not prosecute any doctor, any pharmacist, any nurse for abortion, period, because of the Arizona Constitution," Mayes said.
After a back-and-forth, Mayes returned to the Constitution.
"I'm sorry you're confused about the Arizona Constitution and I know you only graduated from law school a few years ago, but the Arizona Constitution says what it says," Mayes said.
The debate was moderated by Ted Simons and Stacey Barchenger.
