Obviously, the court didn’t need a picture to show that it wasn’t even contested by the Trump people, but instead they went ahead and put that in. I think it was for public consumption. I think there they like that image and they wanted to get it out there. But what’s also curious is the level of detail in this filing.

They’re saying that a special master would endanger national security and and their case. Why? I mean, the special master is an extension of the court. They are appointed all the time.
