The current AG of Montana needs to quit wasting our tax dollars tilting at windmills. He has now signed on to a court brief opposing the seizure of the documents from Mar-a-Largo. The brief does not appear to relate to the seizure, instead it is a diatribe against the Biden administration.
Knutsen is way to radical for me. I hope we can get rid of him before he decides to run for governor.

GOP attorneys general back Trump in court fight over Mar-a-Lago documents

In a 21-page document that repeated numerous right-wing talking points but that experts said advanced little new legal ground, the officials accused the Biden administration of “ransacking” Mar-a-Lago, the Florida home of the former president, during an Aug. 8 court-authorized FBI raid and of politicizing the Justice Department. for governor. The attorneys general from Texas, Florida, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Louisiana, South Carolina, Utah and West Virginia do not elaborate on the core legal issues Trump is contesting — executive privilege and whether the documents found at his Florida estate were actually classified — according to John Yoo, a legal expert on executive privilege who reviewed the brief at The Washington Post’s request.

Can you imagine the fit the Republican Party would have had if a former Democratic Party president had lied about having top secret/classified documents stored in a closet at their resort home that hosts foreign visitors from around the world?

Donald Trump is a menace to our nation and the people who continue to support him are no better.

In other GOP news, the Montana Secretary of State's office has paid outside law firms $1.2 million to fend off lawsuits brought about by the voter suppression bills passed by the 2021 Montana legislature. The state had budgeted $100,000 for outside legal assistance.

Typical Republicans, thinking they can subvert the Constitution and suppress voter's rights while thinking no one will say anything about it.
