Whoa. Chief justice of the Ohio Supreme Court after the state GOP criticized a lower-court judge for siding with Dems in a lawsuit to allow more dropboxes in the state>>
For reference, here's what the Ohio Republican Party said yesterday. Their lawyers today told the judge they had no idea this was out there, that it's now scrubbed from the internet.
(This is the version Ohio Dems submitted to court to suggest the Ohio GOP gets held in contempt)
"The Republican Party’s statement should be seen for what it is: part of a continuing string of attacks against any [court] decision that doesn’t favor a political end, regardless of party, even if that decision may be legally correct and indeed legally required."
<<This quote is from Maureen O'Connor, Chief Justice of the Ohio Supreme Court
She's also the former Lieutenant Governor of Ohio. And yes, a Republican.

Since all eyes are on Roger Stone (+Trump) tonight, let's take a stroll through all the OMG, WHAT JUST HAPPENED moments in this case. Thread:
That Stone was a target of the Mueller investigation and why became clear in 2018.
Jerome Corsi played chicken with Mueller over the Stone/WikiLeaks situation, somehow avoiding a criminal charge.
They offered him a plea deal, Corsi refused to sign it cnn.com/2018/11/27/pol…
Armed FBI agents swarmed Stone’s house on a Friday in late Jan 2019 to make the arrest.

@cnnpolitics @davidgshortell @DelarosaGilAJAM were there w camera, after #cnnstakeout followed tips for months on Mueller’s grand jury activity

Just gonna say, the Supreme Court's decision to include this footnote in Vance about the governor of the Louisiana Territory stopped me in my tracks
No, seriously, let's talk for a minute about the 1807 John Marshall decision on presidential subpoenas in the treason trial of Aaron Burr. It plays a big part in CJ Roberts' reasoning in Vance today.
And it's riveting.
Hamilton fans already know: Aaron Burr got pretty bitter by 1804, because then-President Thomas Jefferson was dropping him as VP.
He runs for Guv in NY, loses. Shoots Hamilton.

(apologies to actual historians and to Roberts, who tells this better than I can in tweets)

The latest release of Mueller 302s (witness memos) is here. If they're not redacted or keeping the witness name anonymous, they're mostly about Manafort, Greg Craig or Michael Cohen. Take a look: cnn.com/2020/06/30/pol…
We did, however, get a freshly unredacted version of a Steve Bannon interview about Roger Stone's pursuit of the Clinton emails in 2016. cnn.com/2020/06/30/pol…
Plus this interesting blip, about how Mueller was asking about Paul Manafort's 2017 visit to Ecuador and discussions about Julian Assange.

The latest release of Mueller 302s last night revealed a lot--a witness-by-witness record of personalities and motivations on the 2016 campaign.

@MarshallCohen @EllieCKaufman @eorden @ShimonPro @SaraMurray @davidgshortell picked through all 600 pages:

@MarshallCohen @EllieCKaufman @eorden @ShimonPro @SaraMurray @davidgshortell Headlines this time:
-Trump campaign feared 'N-word' tape
-Ukraine ex-Pres wanted Manafort back while he was Trump campaign chair
-A mtg w Manafort and Castro's son
-Trump personally dispatched Giuliani to spin DNC hack in 2016
-Trump foreign policy team was "like herding cats"
@MarshallCohen @EllieCKaufman @eorden @ShimonPro @SaraMurray @davidgshortell The full document of Mueller memos released last night to @CNNPolitics @BuzzFeedNews by the Department of Justice is here: cnn.com/2020/03/02/pol…

Today, we're expecting the Justice Department to release another round of Mueller 302s from our FOIA litigation

These are the witness interview memos that Mueller condensed into his final report

Here's a THREAD on what we've learned so far cnn.com/2019/11/04/pol…
Mueller 302s release 1: on Nov 2, 2019.
What Michael Cohen, Rick Gates and Steve Bannon told Mueller
In that drop, we learned Paul Manafort blamed Ukrainians for the DNC hack in 2016--instead of Russia. This conspiracy theory has come up again in the current Ukraine situation that led to impeachment

I've spent the last 4 days combing through new documents released by DOJ related to the Mueller report, and revisiting the Mueller Report itself.
Here's where coverage started, with a 3rd batch of Mueller 302s released through CNN & Buzzfeed's FOIA suit: cnn.com/2020/01/02/pol…
The thing that keeps jumping out at me: What Mueller investigated still matters--regarding both foreign influence in US politics and the President's behavior.
And there's still a lot that DOJ refuses to share. Redactions, exemptions, etc.
Almost perfect timing that on Friday, DOJ argued at the DC Circuit that Don McGahn is protected from testifying to Congress about Trump obstruction attempts, and that the House shouldn't see Mueller's grand jury redactions.

We still haven't seen ANY McGahn 302s.
