Donald Trump lashed out at U.S. District Court Judge David Carter, who said the former President and attorney John Eastman likely entered a criminal conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election. Trump signed legal documents describing alleged evidence of election fraud that he knew were false, Carter indicated Wednesday. Well, now it's Thursday, and Trump took to his failing Truth Social platform to call the judge "nasty."

"Who's this Clinton appointed "Judge," David Carter, who keeps saying, and sending to all, very nasty, wrong, and ill informed statements about me on rulings, or a case (whatever!), currently going on in California, that I know nothing about - nor am I represented," Trump screamed into the void. "With that being said, please explain to this partisan hack that the Presidential Election of 2020 was Rigged and Stolen. Also, he shouldn't be making statements about me until he understands the facts, which he doesn't!"

Jinkies, Lumpy sounds mad.

Via Politico:

The emails are among the files that Eastman had been declining to turn over to the committee, citing attorney-client privilege. While Carter concluded that some of the materials fell under that privilege, he ruled that Eastman must disclose four emails to congressional investigators because they are evidence of a likely crime.

"The Court finds that these four documents are sufficiently related to and in furtherance of the obstruction crime," wrote Carter, who is based in California.

According to Carter, Trump and his attorneys alleged in a Dec. 4 filing in Georgia state court that Fulton County had improperly counted more than 10,000 votes of dead people, felons and unregistered voters. They then moved that proceeding to federal court and discussed whether to use the same statistics in that filing. In private correspondence, Trump’s lawyers noted that the then-president had resisted signing documents containing “specific numbers.” On Dec. 31, Eastman emailed other Trump lawyers that the numbers filed in state court were not accurate.

Narcissists do not like being exposed. They do not like being told they're wrong or admitting defeat. Trump just hit the trifecta. Also, who else is LOLing that emails are involved? I'm sure the email lady is getting a kick out of all of this.
