Florida Federal Court Using Underwear Shop For Phone Storage Is Most Florida Thing Ever

Sophisticated lace and silk women bra and pantiesDonald Trump’s loony collateral attack on the FBI search of his “national security vault/unlocked pool house” made its way to federal “Judge” Aileen Cannon’s courtroom yesterday.

The FPOTUS hopes to get a special master to scour the seized documents for “privilege” even though they’ve already been filtered for attorney-client privilege and he — and we cannot stress this enough — does not have executive privilege vis a vis the actual executive branch seems bizarrely likely to succeed even though he’s not even bothered to effect service for this suit yet.

For an extra $20 you can get the full oral argument.

Now, despite this being Florida, the shop in question appears to be classier than the set up would suggest. Still, a federal courthouse is outsourcing phone storage to a place where the word “crotchless” comes up unironically.

On the other hand, this might be the least of that court’s legitimacy problems at this point.
