So this whole thing was basically that he doesn’t have a phone from 2015 anymore and doesn’t have a corporate retention policy for Post It notes.

Ouch, if that’s what you “understood” from the judge’s judgment, it doesn’t say much about your reading comprehension. Which would explain why you’re always so angry.

Cry some more. Then read the court documents like I did.

you want to say there was not a quite significant discussion about post it note retention and a phone from 2015?

himt: there was.

Yep that’s the fine that was in place prior to the judge admitting Trump doesn’t have what he was getting fined for.

that’s why fine stopped.

Ultra MAGA from the great MAGA king.

Ouch, more clarification of what you “understood” from the judgement really isn’t making you look good.

So what’s your take? Why isn’t he paying the fine anymore?

why so critical of my takeaways while providing none of your own?

did you miss the part about post its? The 2015 phone and other phones he doesn’t have? Maybe he should have just said he smashed them with a hammer.

Exactly, that’s what this whole thing was about. Extortion shakedown cash.

Yep typical “reply guy” who adds nothing to any conversation. Just comes here and whines about the truths that others speak.

And your bizarre distortions of maga reality somehow do? Oh dear. You people really are delusional. You add nothing to the conversation.

what did I say that is false? 

Um, did you already forget how this discourse started when I quoted what you said was false? Oh dear. Memory and comprehension issues. What are you trump himself?!

The judge admitted no such thing.

The end of the article very clearly states the criteria needed for lifting the fines, and they have nothing to do with "admitting" records don't exist.

Engoron’s criteria for lifting the contempt finding were largely in line with conditions James’ office outlined in its response Monday to the lengthy filing last week in which Trump and his legal team said they had exhausted efforts to find the subpoenaed records.

Those conditions sought by James' office were: Trump submitting another affidavit detailing his and his company’s retention and destruction policies for his documents and electronic devices; and allowing the outside firm Trump hired, HaystackID, to finish going through 17 boxes kept at an off-site storage facility, and for

What happened to the phones? Did he use a hammer?

Yep. And apparently black label even read the ruling, and still came to that conclusion!

Finally, it looks like you understand Trump's phone call to Zelinsky to "do us a favor though"....

Just another bad week for Trump....

In between his fear of being assassinated by a banana and starting a war with Mexico, we learned that good 'ole boy and golf partner Lindsey Graham said Trump isn't a leader and just "plays the TV game....while saying at the same time "Biden is the best person to lead the country"....

First we have McCarthy dumping all over Trump in secret, now Graham - who's next, Melania?

Then we have Pence stepping up his 2024 efforts along with Taliban favorite Mike Pompeo....both supporting non-Trump endorsed candidates... Cruz, DeSantis, Rubio, Hawley, Graham, et al, can't be far behind....

Get ready for more Mega-MAGA-Madness....

It would be interesting to see what his excuse(s) would be if a search conducted under a warrant turned up some of the documents he claims do not exist. Perjury and obstruction of justice can lead to a long prison sentence. I have a feeling certain grand jury witnesses have already testified to the existence of many of the documents in question and know where they are.

..or like Biden telling the Ukrainians to back off looking into his son?

Just another bad week for Trump....

If the left thinks so.

Lindsey Graham said Trump isn't a leader and just "plays the TV game....while saying at the same time "Biden is the best person to lead the country"....

Graham already admitted to saying that, nothing new, but the guy definitely doesn't think so of Biden now.

Then we have Pence stepping up his 2024

Pence will never be the GOP nominee

Get ready for more Mega-MAGA-Madness....

Tune in for the Democrat's devolution tour coming soon.

Court fines are mere "Trump" change to the life-long serial scofflaw from Queens. This "Holy Cow" of an ex-president needs to be hauled before judges and grand juries and have the book thrown at him. It's becoming clearer by the week, though, that despite the circus of January 6 investigations, the DOJ and the Deep State have no interest in upsetting the institutional apple-cart of political power by exposing and removing the rotten "bad apples" like 45 and his enablers for their gaming the system with their smorgasbord of criminal activities.

I also think prosecutors are laying the groundwork for a search warrant by making Mr. Trump and his lawyer swear the documents and old phones no longer exist. The prosecutors know what they are looking for and where it will be.

Yeah but 45

If the left thinks so.

Lots of people think so, so many. Just yesterday a man can e up to me in the street and said “sir, so many of us think like this”

Pence will never be the GOP nominee

If the right think so

Tune in for the Democrat's devolution tour coming soon.

Yeah but MAGA madness. That’s why so many are jumping ship and moving to California and NY.

It's interesting. Trump muscles the Ukranians to get what he wants - impeachable. Biden muscles the Ukranians to get what he wants- a charming story to tell on the campaign trail.

Trump misspeaks- 25th Amendment call. Biden misspeaks- just Joe being Joe.

Thanks for agreeing with me...

Just another bad week for Trump....

If the left thinks so.

So why is Trump afraid of bananas? And why did "Mr No More Wars" want to start a war with Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, and Mexico?

Lindsey Graham said Trump isn't a leader and just "plays the TV game....while saying at the same time "Biden is the best person to lead the country"....

Graham already admitted to saying that, nothing new, but the guy definitely doesn't think so of Biden now.

How do you know? He's like every other Repub - says one thing in public, gets caught on tape saying the exact opposite in private...LOL...

Then we have Pence stepping up his 2024

Pence will never be the GOP nominee

Sure, just like you said Trump would win in a landslide...Pence is already campaigning, so is Pompeo, so is DeSantis...the rest can't be far behind. Clown-car time again...

Get ready for more Mega-MAGA-Madness....

Tune in for the Democrat's devolution tour coming soon.

Get ready for more MAGA comedy...Pence's wife having an affair with Hunter....Pompeo's maid being a Taliban agent...DeSantis' daughter being Snow White at Disney World...
