Document Dump – First Impressions

Haven't read them all yet, but so far this White House document dump is mostly multiple copies of dull things. You have to wonder why they couldn't have dumped these on Friday as originally planned … were they busy arguing over which of the good ones to take out?

Anyway, the Left Coaster has a nice summary of the only interesting items I've noticed so far, an extended correspondence with and about Margaret Chiara from the Western District of Michigan. Basically, main Justice was willing to trash her reputation behind her back, but not to her face. And indeed, they were willing to appoint her as a trainer of other prosecutors, so either they didn't think she was that bad or they were happy to pay hush money as long as she avoided the press. See US Attorney Purgegate – Margaret Chiara for the details. No one comes out looking particularly good.
