Trump blames the SM by saying vendors can’t do it in time. Stop there, because DOJ says they can get a vendor, but Trump has to pay for it. So it’s a weak argument that sounds like you didn’t really try. And Trump asked for all this. He can’t whine now that this is hard. You called this tune, now you’ve gotta dance.
In a new filing, Trump's lawyers say they recently learned from DOJ that the 11K documents seized from Mar-a-Lago actually tally up to 200,000 *pages* and that's why vendors wouldn't engage with them on the proposed timeframehttps://t.co/NYzBAyb2q3 pic.twitter.com/nNf56hsojS— Zoe Tillman (@ZoeTillman) September 29, 2022

This Is Not Helping Trump
But that’s small beer. The big news is Trump is telling the world he took 200,000 pages of government documents.
It may be a gross exaggeration. But Trump’s team again steps on the rake they put in front of themselves. The exaggeration is an excuse for their failure with vendors; but it also makes Trump one helluva thief.
