He is not under arrest. Not cuffed but yes seems to be in golf attire. Video will tamp down some rumours#TrumpIsGoingToJail #TrumpIndictment #Trump #TrumpWasRight pic.twitter.com/ON0y9YvmJj
On Sunday, the former POTUS disembarked from a plane in Washington DC on an unscheduled visit.
Wearing a polo shirt and golf shoes, the former President's unexpected visit immediately prompted a wash of speculation: was he there for the Department of Justice to arrest?
Others suggested that perhaps he was in Washington DC for an urgent visit to Walter Reed, the health facility that services both former and current Presidents.
The internet really had a field day speculating, but the reality is likely far more boring.
Showing up wearing golf gear? The former POTUS was probably on his way to a golf game.
Of course, as the days pass and the Department of Justice begins to wrap up its investigation of the records kept illegally at Mar-a-Lago, every step and word by Trump is being scrutinized by both fans and critics alike wanting to be ready for any potential indictment – should one even occur.
The Special Master Controversy and Missing Documents
Currently, the most recent drama to unfold over the Mar-a-Lago documents is coming in the form of a battle with the Department of Justice over the appointment of a so-called "Special Master" to oversee the sorting and filing of documents seized from the former POTUS's private residence.
A judge granted Trump's request to appoint a Special Master, but the Department of Justice has filed an appeal. It would not halt the process, just slow it – which may be good enough for Trump who hopes to be protected to some degree by announcing his candidacy for President in 2024. How much protection it would actually grant remains to be seen, if any.
In addition, video has surfaced of Trump aides moving boxes of documents from Mar-a-Lago months ago, which could explain where some missing documents ended up.
When the FBI raided Mar-a-Lago in August, 43 files marked "classified" were found empty. Where those boxes went and what they contained remains of interest to the DOJ's investigation.
