Hmm given the courts haste and the DOJ 6400 word response does this mean we might actually see an arrest by lunchtime?
The wheels of justice move slowly until they don’t need to anymore.
Accelerated court timing would indicate some serious shit is about to go down.
I doubt it involves porking a pornstar.

Nope, but we could see a ruling from the DC circuit today.

Now, will 5 supremes be willing to gut the crime fraud exception for the Pride of the GOP?

Okay I'll bite, how specifically does this play into these circumstances, please Sol??

"It is the purpose of the crime-fraud exception to the attorney-client privilege to assure that the “seal of secrecy” between lawyer and client does not extend to communications made for the purpose of getting advice for the commission of a fraud or crime."

Discussions between attorney and client are protected from disclosure by the Atty/Client privilege. It is sacrosanct and can be pierced in the rarest of cases. One such exception is the crime fraud exception. Client can tell Atty about past crimes, and be protected, but not ongoing or planned future crimes.

A federal judge has ruled that Trump’s atty’s conversations and notes about the Mar a Lardo document-mart fall within the crime fraud exception and must be disclosed. The appellate court ordered overnight briefing and ruled in a day, suggesting that something very sensitive was ongoing. National security type stuff. That court has ordered Corcoran to testify (will happen Friday) and turn over docs, which supposedly include transcripts of his recordings of conversations with Trump. This is moving with what some might call alacrity.
