Ruling tonight: DC judge won't force Justice Dept. to disclose any records showing whether Trump was or is a target of an investigation /// Opinion: assets.documentcloud.org/documents/4840… #FOIA
US Justice Department refused to confirm/ deny existence of any such records. Judge Amy Berman Jackson says Trump's press statements and tweets aren't enough to overcome DOJ's "glomar" response. assets.documentcloud.org/documents/4840…
Regarding one @realDonaldTrump tweet, the judge writes:

"The court is reluctant to place so much emphasis on the President’s choice of a single article in a rambling set of comments issued at 4:00 in the morning."

More of Judge Amy Berman Jackson's observations on Trump tweets:

>> "vague, and sometimes hostile, comments"

>> "rambling set of comments issued at 4:00 in the morning"

>> "impassioned but disjointed references to a 'Witch Hunt,' 'setup &
trap,' 'collusion,' or 'obstruction' ”
