No one wants to represent Trump because they know what a shit show it is.

He can’t get anyone of the caliber of someone like Boies and he sent Ty Cobb and Flood packing because it ultimately came down to not listening to what his lawyers were telling him to do. Trump will always claim to be the smartest in the room and tell everyone else what to do, ignoring sound legal counsel. So, he thinks the best he can find is…

Trey Gowdy?

Yeah, if you can hear someone laughing through the Internet right now, that’s me and every other lawyer, expert, and political watcher, because this is so Trump.

how the eff did lying about a bj?

oh, and you should read article IV of the impeachment (which failed) for what constituted “Abusing His Office by Lying to and Obstructing Congress” back then:

“In responding in such a manner, the president exhibited contempt for the constitutional prerogative of Congress to conduct an impeachment inquiry,” the GOP report says. The “answers are a continuation of a pattern of deceit and obstruction of duly authorized investigations.”

oh, and you should read article IV of the impeachment (which failed) for what constituted “Abusing His Office by Lying to and Obstructing Congress” back then:

I’d argue they both rose to the level of impeachment. Hell, I’d argue that impeachment powers have been vastly underutilized in American history. In addition to Clinton and Trump, they should have been invoked over the Gulf of Tonkin Incident, Watergate, Iran-Contra, the Iraq War.

But Congress has long be interested empowering the Imperial Presidency. It makes their jobs easier because they don’t have to take positions on hard issues that they later must explain to constituents. Presidents, on the other hand, are freed from having to worry about more than “one more election” in their lifetimes.

DangerMan  Oct 8, 2019 • 12:09:44pm

serious question for the lawyers here re all the folks are ignoring subpoenas, not turning over dox, etc:

if the dems win the white house and there’s an actual, legit AG and functioning justice department, are those people still liable for prosecution then? even if the underlying case or issue went away and it’s a new congress?

because that’s how you get the rule of law back. showing that some people may ‘get away with it’ in the short run, but they will all lose in the long run

Hillary fainted after getting dehydrated and the press immediately began questioning the medical records she’d given them and accusing her doctors of lying about her health.

Bernie has two stents put into his heart, his campaign lies for days about the seriousness of his condition, and the press give him a pass for refusing any sort of scrutiny about his health or his continued refusal to release his medical records.

I was taught in law school that a good lawyer knows his case inside and out and that you have to know what the other side knows and can argue all their issues as well as they can. If you’re the plaintiff/prosecutor, you have to know and anticipate the defense/defendant’s positions, facts, and issues, and vice versa.

Rudy appears to ignore that basic advice. Then again, Trump ignores all the advice he’s given and listens to only those telling him what he wants to hear. So they’re meant for each other.

re: #118 lawhawk

I was taught in law school that a good lawyer knows his case inside and out and that you have to know what the other side knows and can argue all their issues as well as they can. If you’re the plaintiff/prosecutor, you have to know and anticipate the defense/defendant’s positions, facts, and issues, and vice versa.

Rudy appears to ignore that basic advice. Then again, Trump ignores all the advice he’s given and listens to only those telling him what he wants to hear. So they’re meant for each other.

Yeah he doesn’t seem to understand the case against Trump at all and he’s fine with spreading bs to Trump’s fans.

But they made sure to grab the victim’s gun and take that with them, leaving the police with no way to prove that their sole suspect in custody was shot by the victim.

Man, I just read the whole letter and it is absolutely batshit. How can this be real? How can any of this be real?

The whole thing reads like an over-long Trump tweet thread. It’s one long word salad from beginning to end. Cipollone should be disbarred just for putting his name on this joke.

I’m only just now catching up. I have to admit, I’m not really all that surprised. I think we all expected that Trump would not just give up and go quietly. My concern is what can be done about it to get past all the obstruction and intimidation and kick his fat orange ass out on the street, where he can be arrested and investigated like a proper villain.

Blind Frog Belly White  Oct 8, 2019 • 3:27:51pm

From Cipollone’s ridiculous letter:

For example, you have denied the President the right to cross-examine witnesses, to call witnesses, to receive transcripts of testimony, to have access to evidence, to have counsel present, and many other basic rights guaranteed to all Americans. You have conducted your proceedings in secret.

Oh, honey, no… That’s not how this works. The right of cross examination, calling witnesses, receiving transcripts, access to evidence, having counsel present, etc. all apply to TRIALS, not impeachment inquiries, which are like Grand Jury proceedings - which are, or course, secret.

You, Mr. Cipollone, are an actual attorney and you know this, so I can only conclude that your idiot client made you write this horseshit. Is it really worth the destruction of your reputation as an attorney to put up with this nonsense?

With the percentage of Americans in favor of at least an Impeachment inquiry now between 55 and 60%, including a substantial percentage of Republicans, I suspect this stonewalling will backfire and push that percentage still higher, while pushing the percentage in favor of removal higher as well.

My concern is what can be done about it to get past all the obstruction and intimidation and kick his fat orange ass out on the street, where he can be arrested and investigated like a proper villain.

I don’t know the Democrats’ game plan. They could be planning to subpoena witnesses, then sue them in court to compel their testimony. This will likely take a long time, and the impeachment inquiry will drag into next year. Or the House could just add obstruction of Congress to the articles of impeachment and go ahead and vote impeachment at some point after they get back from recess. However there is a lot of damning information leaking out, and the whole coverup could break down if there are more executive branch employees willing to come forward out of either patriotism or fear of prison time. It would take a massive amount of awful evidence, and a collapse in Trump’s poll numbers, to get the Senate to remove Trump from office after he is impeached, so he will probably be acquitted, but hopefully so badly damaged that he loses in a landslide next November and takes a lot of other Republicans with him. Then when he contests the election due to “massive voter fraud” and refuses to leave office, its incumbent on us to shut the country down and march on DC so that the powers that be understand we will not countenance it and they remove him from the White House.

My mother was our breadwinner, because my father was disabled. And he had to sign for her to have a bank account, or a card account. Or a utilities account. Anything. The same was true when I got married in the mid 1970s. I didn’t like it, but didn’t fight it. Because my husband WAS the breadwinner. But my mother was really pissed!

Then he obstructed justice verbally.

Now he is just obstructed justice by mail.

What next? Obstructing justice with interpretive dance?

Obstructing justice by shooting a witness on 5th Avenue.
