Major document dump expected today.

"Major document dump expected today."

From a press conference with Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) earlier this afternoon:

QUESTION: (OFF-MIC) expecting more documents.

SCHUMER: Today.

QUESTION: Do you know how many (OFF-MIC)

SCHUMER: There’s supposed to be about a thousand pages of documents. It’s supposed to come about 4 or 5 o’clock. We know nothing about what’s in them.

QUESTION: Do you know whether they cover any of your redacted…

SCHUMER: We do not. We do not. We know nothing about what’s in them. We just know it’s a lot, and it’s coming in the late afternoon.

UPDATE: “A very senior source who has seen the latest batch of documents to be delivered to the Senate says Sen. Chuck Schumer is wrong in estimating that the Department of Justice will dump about 1,000 pages related to the U.S. attorney firings sometime between 4 and 5 p.m. EDT. As the afternoon drags on, it is looking more likely that the dump will slip to either very late Thursday or Friday.”
