Defense counsel rears up and launches this in response to the special prosecutor's begging the court to keep everything sealed, buried, covered up, under the rose, and away from the public eye, and those damned Russians.
Having produced not one iota of discovery in this criminal case the unlawfully appointed Special Counsel requests a special and unprecedented blanket protective order covering tens of millions of pages of unclassified discovery. Having made this special request based on a secret submission to the Court and a hysterical dithyramb about the future of the American elections, one would think that the Special Counsel would cite to case holdings that support this remarkable request. But no, instead, the Special Counsel seeks to equate this make-believe electioneering case to others involving international terrorism and major drug trafficking, and relies only on irrelevant dicta from inappropriate, primarily out-of-circuit cases. In short, fake law, which is much more dangerous than fake news.One used to have to wait until the dog days of August for court reporting to be worth reading. These guys are clearly jumping the gun.
