There will be some timeline clashes this week in the Trump stolen document case, each of which could spiral into a Constitutional crisis. That's because DOJ's motion for a stay of Cannon's order enjoining DOJ from doing any investigative work and sharing classified information " which was filed at 9:03PM on Friday " and any other yet-to-be-filed appeal of (parts of) her order will be proceeding even as Dearie scrambles to meet Cannon's first deadline: to have a schedule in place by September 25.

The Mar-a-Lago search warrant referred to Section 793 " "Gathering, transmitting or losing defense information," which doesn't just cover "spying" in the sense that many think of when they hear the term. Section 793 specifically states that people legally granted access to national defense documents " people like the former president " are subject to punishment should they improperly retain that information.
