Appearing on MSNBC on Saturday morning, former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner admitted that he was stunned by how rapidly Donald Trump's legal maneuvers are receiving consideration as they move up the appeals chain and claimed it appears judges at various levels are expediting the cases to the former president's detriment.

Speaking with MSNBC host Tiffany Cross, Kirschner pointed out Trump's attempt to keep the National Archives from turning over his files and documents to the House Jan 6th committee is moving faster than expected with the former president losing every step of the way.

"What I am heartened by, is people got dispirited when they saw that the appellate court issued a stay. They temporarily blocked the documents from going from the National Archives to the House select committee after U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan delivered that well-reasoned strong opinion saying Donald Trump doesn't have executive privilege," he explained. "It's Joe Biden's privilege to use and he has declined to use it. Then everybody sort of was deflated because the appellate court has come in and temporarily blocked it."

"I take a different view," he elaborated. "First of all the judge decided the issue at light speed within weeks. Now what has the appellate court done? They've set an extremely fast track, oral arguments on November 30th, two weeks down the road. This harkens back to the Nixon days. in 1974 when the subpoena was issued for Nixon's tapes."

"There can be timely litigation through the courts if the courts are determined to engage in timely litigation," he continued. "It seems like both in the way both Judge Chutkan resolved it and the expedited track that the appellate court placed this litigation, it seems maybe the courts have wised up and maybe the courts are done letting nefarious litigants like Donald Trump weaponize the court delay to run out the clock. Because Donald Trump rarely has a meritorious lawsuit to bring. He is always trying to weaponize the delay and it looks like his luck may run out."
