Trump’s bloviating to discredit his legal issues are laughable,
Yet his ‘aggrieved victim’ excuses raise him millions,
So we turn to editorial cartoonists for insights and analysis!

Select news stories

+ CNN Exclusive: ‘Ludicrous.’ ‘Ridiculous.’ ‘A complete fiction.’: Former Trump officials say his claim of ‘standing order’ to declassify is nonsense – 18 former top Trump administration officials [including Trump’s second and third chiefs of staff] tell CNN they never heard any such order issued during their time working for Trump, and that they believe the claim to be patently false.

+ Former U.S. Solicitor General Neal Katyal: If Trump really thought the search was illegal, he’d say so in court with a lawsuit instead of just bloviating on social media. He’s had 10 days to file such a challenge and never has. For an obvious reason.

+ Insider: Trump used the Mar-a-Lago raid to fire up supporters, raising up to $1 million a day in donations: report

+ NBC News: NBC News poll: 57% of voters say investigations into Trump should continue – Ahead of the midterm elections, the GOP leads on congressional preference, but Democrats catch up on enthusiasm.
