After spending days with Trump prepping for his deposition… his lawyers finally said “screw it..he’s an idiot…tell him to plead the 5th or we’re all going to prison” https://t.co/p2BSj6vaBp— Hal Sparks (@HalSparks) August 10, 2022
BREAKING: as the NY AG investigation is civil (at this point), Trump's assertion of the 5th CAN be used against him if the AG brings a civil case, unlike in a criminal case. At this point, one would expect that civil suit to happen in short order. https://t.co/qTk3PwZw0Q— Andrew Weissmann (@AWeissmann_) August 10, 2022
The attempt to minimize or trivialize the Mar-a-Lago raid -- an attempt that seemed to have some plausibility last night - couldn't actually withstand the cold light of day today.

it’s wild to see a large number of journalists have already forgotten the cardinal rule of trump scandals, which is that they always turn out to be much worse than they look at the beginning— GONELIKEHELLMACHINE (@golikehellmachi) August 9, 2022

So, yeah, I'm curious why he - or his minions - would take a van's worth of classified, steal it, and store it in Florida. What's in it that they didn't have time to destroy, or couldn't shred? What would be the point?— Tom Nichols (@RadioFreeTom) August 11, 2022
I’m no lawyer, but it seems to me a bit problematic if your strongest defense is “Hey, the FBI planted all this damning evidence.”— Dan Rather (@DanRather) August 10, 2022
Why would Trump be stealing, hiding, and refusing to hand over top secret and classified documents he stole from us if he wasn't planning to sell them to our foreign enemies and adversaries?— Cheri Jacobus (@CheriJacobus) August 11, 2022

The entire @GOP has sided with a thief who by legal definition, stole & illegally held this country's most critical national security secrets, & did God only knows, while also mtg w/the Saudis & Orban in the same week.

The information being requested centered around U.S. Rep. Scott Perry, & the effort to seek alternate electors to overturn the 2020 election.
BREAKING: DJT's personal library was destroyed in the FBI/DOJ search, and sadly ‘both books’ are beyond repair. 😂— Jeras Ikehorn (@JerasIkehorn) August 11, 2022
I love the subtle "Dark Brandon" homage with the aviator sunglasses, too:

Moving on to recent events in Alberta, it was recent news that the UPC caucus held an essay contest with the theme "Her Vision Inspires" to encourage young women to write something inspiring for other women - a laudable goal.

Read for yourself: the 3rd place winner of the UCP’s “Her Vision Inspires Essay Contest”.
Explain, @HomeniukJ. You proudly launched this contest. Did you pick the winners? Is this your party’s vision for Alberta? #ableg https://t.co/NTWK4vNNcs pic.twitter.com/FnHUl34x0Z
But I saw a tweet tonight that I'm sure had identified the one person that everyone in the entire UPC caucus will agree should be held responsible for the contest!
So… Someone is lying. The “Her Vision Inspires” web site said that the judging panel would be made up of Jackie Armstrong-Homeniuk and other female MLAs, presumably from the UCP caucus.— Rhys (@rhyscourtman) August 10, 2022
So far, they’ve all denied being part of it. 🙄 #ableg https://t.co/L1E6cNS35u
One other bit of funny stuff tonight:
