Trump pulled into yet another lawsuit this time by investors claiming fraud over a product on the apprentice. A video phone pitches or something. Video phone? I don't. There's just never been a bigger criminal, like certainly not just in The White House, but it is endless. His list of crimes in fraud and griffs. Yeah, he is the most investigated and thus far least prosecuted person in American history, but that's going to change. By the way, didn't him opening his big yap about aging Carol again. Yesterday. So now he is not president anymore. And he is defamed her again. Yes. And all she has to do is amend her complaint and now he no longer has the protection of the presidency for the defamation that he clearly perpetrated against her. So, you know, he remains his own worst enemy. I have to hope that he can not judge shop forever as you were saying. Trump raged against U.S. district judge David Carter yesterday a day after Carter wrote in 18 page opinion indicating that Trump signed court documents making specific claims of election fraud. He knew to be inaccurate. Right, so he just, he'll do his partisan to hack judge blah blah blah.

These people have been and it's so unusual stuff because usually the judiciary sits back. They wait for the Department of Justice to bring the charge. They wait for a conviction and at the time of sentencing, that's where they start to say things like, what Trump did was really pretty horrible. And let me tell you how long he's going to spend in prison. Here, it's kind of law enforcement turned on its head. The judiciary. Yeah. Is the one sort of leaning forward saying, listen, executive branch. Y'all need to take care of some of Trump's crimes. Right. Yeah.

The Ongoing Skirmish Over the Mar-a-Lago Documents

"The case of the Mar-a-Lago documents is now in the hands of the special master, the special master is the independent judge. This is a guy named Raymond deary. Who has been chosen by judge Eileen cannon to look over these documents and kind of separate them out. Separate them out in the documents that are personal versus documents that are official. Now, also separate them out in the documents that are unclassified. Documents that have been declassified and on the other hand documents that are still classified. And many people think that somehow this master, this Raymond deary guy, gets the ultimate say over what happens next. But he actually doesn't. If you read the judge's order, in fact, I've been looking at social media and they go, oh, you know, Trump made a huge mistake with this deary guy. He's a real judge unlike Eileen cannon. He's really telling the Trump people what's what. Now, what are they referring to? They're referring to the fact that this judge deary basically asked the Trump guys, are you which of the documents do you claim classified or declassified? Are you claiming that you've declassified some of these documents? And the Trump lawyers are not prepared to say just yet because we don't know what are all the documents that are in the FBI or the Biden DoJ's possession. So basically, the Trump people are making kind of a reasonable point, which is essentially give us a list of the documents when we look at the contents of the documents because it's not like the Trump people at the time were there to make copies of every document so they have the same base of information. They're flying to some degree in the dark. And so they don't want to assert generic claims without knowing which document.

Dinesh Examines the Trump Lawyers' Brief in the Mar-A-Lago Raid

"Donald Trump's attorneys have filed a document in the southern district of Florida. This is the West Palm Beach division. This is before judge Eileen cannon. This is in the matter of the Mar-a-Lago raid. So to bring you up to speed, judge cannon has ordered the appointment of a special master, the special master is a kind of third party, a neutral guy. To review all the documents seized by the FBI and by the Biden DoJ and the ideas of the special master will decide which of those documents can be retained by the government, which of those documents have to be returned to Trump. And basically judge cannon says, I don't trust the Biden DoJ to perform this task fairly. Now, the Biden people are fighting this bitterly a, they're threatening to appeal, which of course is their right, but good luck. First of all, their appeal there'd be appealing to an appellate court that is majority Republican and even if they appeal that it's gonna go to the Supreme Court. So good luck guys, knock yourselves out with the appeal. But even as they are threatening to appeal, they do have to fight it out before judge cannon. Now, now they're trying to say the Biden administration that the special master can review the documents, but should not have access to any of the classified documents. And who gets to determine what's a classified document, the Biden DoJ goes, well, we do. So we will designate all these documents as classified. We will separate them out. We will give the rest of the documents to the special master and the Trump people are say, that's ridiculous.

Dinesh Shows Why 'Unprincipled' Conservatives Are a Very Good Thing

"It's not very often that I agree with the new republic, which by the way used to be a good magazine in the 1980s and even 90s has now become a kind of a rag. And when I say I agree with it, what I actually mean is I'm agreeing with it, but from a completely different perspective. So there's an interesting article. It's actually called the rise of right-wing hacks in federal courts. It's written by a guy named Jason Lincoln's and Jason Lincoln's talking about the conservative court and he says that every time the court makes a kind of a conservative decision ranging from the Dobbs decision to judge Eileen cannon, who, by the way, is a Trump appointee on the Mar-a-Lago raid requiring a special master. The article says, you know, all these leftists come out and talk about how the legal reasoning is horrible and how the judge doesn't seem to have a good grasp of the salient issues or how the conservative court is misreading the constitution. And the article goes on to say, you know, all this analysis is beside the point because the conservatives don't really care whether their decisions are anchored in the law or not. They don't really care if the decisions are fully anchored in the constitution or not. They basically are right wingers and they're doing the right wing thing. They're coming up with the right wing outcome, and then their finding some justification for it. Now, first of all, I do want to point out, this is exactly what the liberals do. The liberals say that we have a living constitution, it's meaning is fluid. And so progressives and liberals go will come up with a liberal result that we like. A more equitable result, a more diverse result, we'll find abortion rights, homosexual rights, things that really aren't in the constitution, but we will kind of conjure them into the constitution through a kind of crafty, legal reasoning. So it's kind of amazingly hypocritical for them to be faulting conservatives for doing this.

"The left is all for the rule of law as long as it goes their way. They're all for the democratic processes of our society except when they produce a result or an outcome that they don't like. And recently, a federal judge, Eileen cannon, shot down or struck down the Biden DoJ by saying, we need to have a special master or an independent authority, review the Mar-a-Lago documents to see which of them appropriately belong to the search, and which of them do not, which is to say which of them need to be isolated or returned to Mar-a-Lago because they were seized inappropriately. And the Biden DoJ shrieking, oh, this is gonna jeopardize national security. This is going to cause the end of the world and the judge is like, it's not going to jeopardize national security. The documents are going to stay with the special master is going to be operating on behalf of the government. So the documents are staying with the government. They're not going to be distributed or publicized in any way. But here's the point. Eileen canon is a respected judge. She's of Cuban origin, a mom fled the dictatorship of Fidel Castro. She graduated from duke. She went to the University of Michigan law school, she worked at the Justice Department as a prosecutor. She also was with a leading law firm. She served as an appellate judicial clerk. Ron DeSantis recently pointed out that when she was confirmed as a federal judge, the vote in Florida was 56 to 21, 12 democratic state senators joined Republicans to confirm her to the bench. And yet, if you look at the commentary on her now coming from, well, some of it's coming from lawyers, law professors, media types, they're acting as though this woman is unqualified a complete buffoon and corrupt to boot. So suddenly the legal system, which the rule of law becomes questionable, why? Because it's producing a result that these people don't like. Here is Ellie style on MSNBC. This is one of NBC's stupid or that's really saying something regular guests. He says, quote, she's biased and she's corrupt. Corrupt. Here's Norman ornstein, my former colleague at AEI. Now orange street was always a Democrat and always recognized that AEI to be one of the stupider guys among the scholars there. But they kind of kept him on because he was had the reputation then of being more of a centrist Democrat. He's not anymore. He's one of the worst today. And he too, he implies the judge cannon is engaging in obstruction of justice. The judge, a federal judge, is obstructing justice. Why? Because according to him, the Biden DoJ should be able to proceed unimpeded, unsupervised without any kind of judicial oversight and any judicial obstacles put in their way. This is his definition of obstruction. Harvard Law professor Laurence tribe who can usually be counted to make the most extreme statement that you could possibly make. Basically compares the judge's decision to quote dred Scott or korematsu. Now dred Scott, most of you know, this was the notorious Supreme Court decision. I believe 1857 that essentially affirmed slavery that said that black people don't have any rights that whites need to respect. This is the infamous decision by judge tawney. Koramatsu is the case which essentially resulted in the internment of Japanese Americans into camps during World War II. So these are extreme cases. And yet here is a Harvard Law professor linking a judge who by and large, let's notice here, what is judge Eileen cannon doing she is putting a check on governmental power. If you look at dred Scott and you look at korematsu, those were promiscuous exercises of government power. On the one hand, government supporting the whole regime of slavery in the south, on the other hand, the government actively grabbing these Japanese American families sticking them into camps. Heroes judge cannon basically saying the government needs to have some oversight. We need a special master to look over what the government is doing to make sure that it's legit, that people's rights, the individual in this case, Trump's rights are not being violated. So the point here is that what we're seeing from the left is a complete. Abrogation of the basic respect due to a federal judge. And this is not to say that you can't disagree with the judge's decision that you can't say that listen, if you're on the left, you probably think, well, the Biden administration can be trusted to exercise a kind of responsible sway over these documents. They can certainly distinguish what's a classified document for what's not, a document that is covered by the search to some stuff. Let's say Trump's medical records or tax records have made just inadvertently have been picked up as part of that search, we can trust the government. This is sort of you could make that argument, but that's a whole different matter from saying the judges are crooked. The judges corrupt the judges is basically just like the judges of all that affirm the extension of slavery into the territories struck down the Missouri compromise. This of course is dred Scott, or the judges who dispatched Japanese Americans into internment camps. We see here rhetoric that has become pulled away from detached from any responsible relationship to common sense or balanced judgment. In other words, what I'm saying is that the left has gotten unhinged, something that's not entirely surprising, but we see once again in this case.

"And Culver City, California. The Justice Department is appealing a court order for a special master in the investigation into former president Donald Trump's handling of classified information. Prosecutors say they have serious concerns about handing government secrets to a third party in the intelligence community has had to pause its assessment of national security risks because of the judge's broad wording in the decision. NPR's justice correspondent Carrie Johnson is here. Care remind us how quickly about what the judge had ruled earlier this week. Sure we were judge Eileen cannon who was appointed by former president Trump had imposed a special master to review about 11,000 pages investigators took from Trump's estate in Florida. She wants this special master to sift through those papers for possible attorney client privilege issues and executive privilege issues. The judge says the FBI can't use those pages for now and it's ongoing criminal investigation into alleged obstruction and willful retention of information related to the national defense, but she had allowed the intelligence community to continue a security assessment. For any potential damage from having those papers stored at Mar-a-Lago, the Justice Department says there's no executive privilege when it comes to those classified papers. And in that anyway, they don't belong to the former president. Now, legal experts had predicted an appeal from the Justice Department, so what saw the DoJ so worried about? Prosecutors are especially worried about giving 100 pages of classified material to a special master. They've actually asked for a stay in the judge's order just on the classified material part. They want to be able to review those classified papers freely themselves and they don't want to give them to a third party. DoJ says it needs to determine what happened to several dozen folders they were marked classified, but those folders were empty. They want to know what was in those folders and whether that material may have been lost or compromised in some way. The judge said that she did not want to get in the way of the review of the intelligence community is doing about possible national security risks of having these papers at a resort in Florida. And I understand there's some news about that there. Some important news, no matter what the judge says, the Justice Department says they can not draw a clear line between the criminal side of this investigation and the national security side. The two probes are unlinked. The director of national intelligence is actually paused the risk assessment because of how broadly the judge ruled in this case. And the head of the counterintelligence division of the FBI filed an affidavit yesterday saying the judge's order is causing irreparable harm to national security. He says the FBI is really the only part of the intelligence community that can investigate and recover government secrets that have been improperly retained out in the wild by using grand jury subpoenas and other tools. And both reviews are necessary the Justice Department says given how sensitive these papers are. So does that mean a special master might still be named review other papers from Mar-a-Lago? It looks like it might happen both sides have a deadline by midnight Friday to send a list of proposed candidates to be the special master to this judge, of course, DoJ says it already reviewed a lot of this material for possible attorney client privilege found only 520 pages could relate to attorney client privilege and as for executive privilege, the Justice Department says that shouldn't apply here that these papers belong to the executive branch and the executive branch needs them for this ongoing and very important criminal investigation. NPR's Carrie Johnson, thanks, Carrie. My pleasure. A growing number of politicians and advocates for tighter gun regulations aren't just asking for change from the government. They want credit card companies to play a part two. Samantha max of member station WNYC explains how. When you buy something with a credit card, the card company tracks it based on where you made the purchase. That's tagged with a merchant category code. There's one for grocery stores, another for airlines, but not for gun retailers. I think people would be shocked to find that out. New York State senator zell normie and more than four dozen other state lawmakers have penned a letter to Mastercard and American Express. They're asking the New York based credit card companies to support the creation of a new code for gun sellers. Now, the international standards body that sets these codes typically lumps them into a category called miscellaneous, with magic stores, silk flower shops, and bottled water dealers. And I think the public would agree that it's important for us to keep track of these things. Federal law already requires financial institutions to report suspicious activity. If credit cards had a separate code for purchases at gun stores, the same laws would let them flag questionable purchases there. Legislators say that could ultimately help law enforcement stop crimes like firearms trafficking, or even prevent mass shootings, like the one earlier this year in Buffalo. Here, state assembly member, chantel Jackson. What we want to do is prevent another buffalo from happening. We always sad. We all talked about, you know, the people that we lost, but the truth is we have to start doing every single thing on every single front to make sure we are combating this. I don't see how it works.

"Sarah Jacobs WTO news, CBS News chief Washington correspondent major Garrett explains the relationship between U.S. presidents and the British Queen during her reign. The queen, the monarch, is the sovereign of the United Kingdom. And presidents don't need their permission to do anything or need to run anything by them, but by showing respect to the queen in this case, American presidents have since Dwight Eisenhower shown the British people of its respect and its admiration. And that reinforced this already existent alliance, and I can tell you, and we all know this. Washington is a very hard city to impress. Whenever the queen came to town, Washington got duly impressed for that reason as well. President Biden in a statement said Queen Elizabeth was the state's woman of unmatched dignity and constancy who deepened the bedrock alliance between the United Kingdom and the United States. Also, another big story we're following tonight, federal prosecutors investigating the government records stored by former president Donald Trump, say they will try to have a federal judge's recent order overturned. That order appoints an independent arbiter to determine whether any of what the FBI seized might be subject to attorney client or executive privilege. In addition to filing notice that they're appealing her ruling to the 11th circuit, the Justice Department also asks judge Eileen cannon to set aside the part of her order that blocks their criminal investigation until an independent arbiter's review of the documents is finished. Prosecutors say the criminal probe into the materials marked classified should continue.

Jefferson county West Virginia into Virginia near Winchester, Steven city, and Strasburg will be watching it for you. 85° of tysons and we have 85° at long font Plaza at two 41. New this afternoon, a federal judge in Florida will appoint a special master to examine that cache of White House documents seized from former president Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home. U.S. district judge Eileen cannon said part of her reasoning for the master is in her words, ensuring the integrity of an orderly process amidst swirling allegations of bias and media leaks. Let's dig in with CBS congressional correspondent Scott mcfarlane. Hey Scott, thanks for being with us this Labor Day. Hey, Hillary. So this is a clearly a blow to the Justice Department. But the judge says the former president has already been stigmatized by all of this. Can you fill in some more details on her decision? The bottom line is this. We all got to get comfortable because this investigation and this story is going to be around a while. The judge has done here and said that a special master independent third party should be approved, should be ordered to go through the items seized at Mar-a-Lago, August 8th, to check for the things the Trump team says that it should be checked for possible executive privilege. And in the meantime, the Justice Department is not to use these records as part of an investigation until the special master process is complete. I think you can measure the time frame here by weeks or months, not by hours or days. They have, through this court order, are the Trump team successfully slowed down in investigation and certainly slowed down the process. Does the Justice Department have any recourse here or they've just got to sit tight? They're not saying if they're going to appeal, but certainly they could appeal and try to get this overturned. They may argue this is dangerous precedent. We have Donald Trump's peculiarities of this case aside. This is a federal judge citing the possibility of executive privilege, even though the Biden administration does not invoke executive privilege. There are some larger scale legal issues at play here beyond just Mar-a-Lago just beyond those boxes. But this is a striking ruling, not just in its timing, coming out on Labor Day, but the potential for really slowing down an investigation and putting a difficult hurdle in front of the Justice Department. And when do does each side have to submit their preferred person, a special master? Yeah, they'll have to have some type of meeting of the minds as to who the candidates would be for this. The judges said a deadline of Friday for that. So they'll have a few days to go over it. If past is prologue, or special masters tend to be law school professors, former federal judges, legal scholars, dispassionate parties, not tethered to any side of a dispute, but parties that are smart enough and experienced enough to know how to navigate complex cases and complex issues, this is certainly one of them. Well, I know we'll be talking to you about this again, Scott. We'll have lots of time. Thanks so much. Enjoy the rest of your holiday. It's so quiet, isn't it? It is a very quiet day.

The CBS News YouTube survey finds most Americans believe democracy and the rule of law is under threat. 72% believe that's the case, but for a variety of reasons.

Attorneys for former president Trump appeared upbeat as they walked out of the federal courthouse in Florida. How'd it go? Inside Trump's legal team and U.S. Department of Justice lawyers presented arguments to federal judge Eileen cannon on Trump's request for a special master to review materials seized from his Florida home last month. DoJ attorneys told the judge they have already examined more than 500 pages, 64 sets of potentially privileged materials. But in a court filing Wednesday, the former president's legal team claimed the DoJ's own review of the documents for attorney client privilege had, quote, deficiencies. Judge Eileen cannon a Trump appointee had previously signaled her openness to possibly grant the former president's request for a special master. Today she ordered the release of a detailed list of the property that was seized.

Webster and the hundreds of other rioters who stormed the capitol January 6th could be pardoned as a former president Trump or to win the presidency in 2024.

"Today ended without a ruling. The judge heard arguments considering former president Trump's request for a special master to review material seized from his Mar-a-Lago home last month. Judge Eileen cannon says she'll make her decision in due course, but she signaled she was skeptical of the government's arguments against appointing a special master. She asked government attorneys to explain what harm it might do to their investigation. And she suggested prosecutors may be wrong to say that former president Trump can not assert executive privilege. One lawyer for the government revealed the FBI's filter team has already set aside 520 pages of documents that agents believe might be covered by attorney client privilege. CBS News White House correspondent Stephen portnoy at one point Donald Trump's lawyers today argued that this offense is akin to an overdue library book.

Webster's a former New York City police officer and was once a member of then mayor Michael Bloomberg security detail. Thomas Webster and all of the hundreds of other rioters who stormed the capitol January 6th will be pardoned should former president Trump run for and win the presidency in a couple of years.

He told bell if he decides to run for president and wins, he will look at issuing full pardons, Donald Trump also said he's met with many of the writers in person and his financially supporting some of them.

The judge rejected that argument but did, however, agree that some of Graham's fact finding following during the following 2020 election is protective legislative activity.

I'm Steve kathan, a federal judge is about to hear arguments on former president Trump's push for an independent review of the documents seized by the FBI at Mar-a-Lago. CBS is Stephen portnoy. Judge Eileen cannon will hear arguments from both sides over whether an independent arbiter should look over everything the FBI took from Mar-a-Lago and determine whether any of it might be privileged. Prosecutors say the FBI has already taken care to protect attorney client privilege, but Trump's lawyers say a special master should decide. They also say the former president reserves the right to claim executive privilege. Many legal experts reject that argument out of hand. They say you can't assert executive privilege against the FBI, which is part of the executive branch.

DOJ Released Late Photo to Delay Response for Trump's Special Master

"The lawyers say that it was a shockingly aggressive move. I think a lot of people agree with this and they made the filing two weeks after Trump was rated by the bureau. And it went before judge Eileen cannon in the southern district of Florida. And she earlier this she had indicated this weekend that she was leaning towards giving Trump the special master. So the DoJ had until midnight last night to respond to this, and they did. They responded, as I said, with this 36 page document, but what they also did was publish a photo of classified documents on the floor of Mar-a-Lago. And like I said, it had the little container next to it. And they did this as part of the petition for the special master against the special master. To review the article. They said, we don't need a special master. Besides, they've already started going through everything anyway. So if there's anything privileged we should Trump and his lawyers, they've already had eyes on it. Now they said they did it with what's called a taint team. We don't know who is on this team, who appoints them. If the FBI and the DoJ are as biased as it appears, they are, how do we know those people aren't biased? How do we know that that information is never going to be used later? They could just say, oh, well, we know he's got that there. Well, how do you know? Well, we just know we had a confidential informant. Maybe you saw it when you went through this stuff. So the hearing for the special master request from Trump's team is tomorrow. They can file a response to this response from the DoJ to what they just filed. They have to do it today though. Because the hearings tomorrow. And of course, the FBI waited to like almost midnight to release this to give Trump's team the least amount of time possible to respond. Now, Trump has also made a request from the same judge. His team asked that she blocks the government from reviewing the materials that they seized from him estate until the special master is appointed. But since she hasn't done that, they can continue to paw their way through all of this stuff.
