Good Friday morning! Welcome back to Trump Watch, your end-of-week guide to Trump and the law. I’m at the E. Barrett Prettyman Courthouse in Washington, D.C., this morning, where Paul Manafort’s lawyers and special counsel prosecutors will gather before U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson to discuss a plea deal. Stay tuned for what comes out of the 11 a.m. hearing.
In the meantime, Attorney General Jeff Sessions railed against nationwide injunctions this week, once again proving to be the tip of the spear in the Trump administration’s criticism of the courts that issue them. Plus, one advocacy group that really wants to get its hands on Trump’s tax returns is trying to get the D.C. Circuit to revive its FOIA suit against the IRS.
