SEP 3, American satire: special master (Mar-a-lago documents)
post-midterm: refers to the time following the US mid-term elections of 2022.
Supporters of the forty-fifth US leader had 'threatened' to defund the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), in retaliation for the agency's carrying out a search and seizure operation (under court order) at his Florida residence and golf-club resort. The material seized included classified documents that had been taken and stored there when he left office in January 2021, contrary to laws relevant to disposal of such secret government information. His detractors had hoped that he might be indicted for obstruction of justice related to these matters prior to the mid-term elections of November 2022.
