Well I guess this is one Russia probe green light we can work with since that CNN article that came out Friday with details of the Trump Tower Moscow plans never went green. Multiple times.

whatever. Good luck Pubes. Hope they get your good side if they have to perpwalk ya

For a totally fake story, there sure are a whole lot of people hiring top-shelf legal representation.

Doesn't seem too bright to be hiring the same lawyer as one of your co-conspirators.

First they'll make ol' Jimmy build the prison, then put him in it.

I am extra entertained by the fact that the lawyers have to retain lawyers.

The White House Counsel no less, whose job is advising people how to avoid this very thing.

It might just mean that they're comfortable acting as a team. A unified front of "We're not the ones who committed treason", if you will.

I read that as 'and takes Hillary for a husband', and was a bit confused.

These stories are kinda dumb, cause if you werE getting investigated, why in the hell wouldn't you lawyer up?

Not mentioned in the article is that the lawyer they hired helped prosecute Martha Stewart before going into private practice to help clients like Kim Dotcom and FIFA officials in their bribery scandal.

Actually that would be considered a conflict of interest for the lawyer. A big no-no in the profession.


Then again nobody even remotely associated with Trump ever seems to be too concerned about ethics so I guess it is all good.

This is going to go on for some while. I'm curious what the various bits of drama will be along the way.

So, someone familiar with a torrent of questionable payments?

The pushed perception, especially among law and order types, of "if you're so innocent/ have nothing to hide,  why do you need a lawyer?"

It suggests that they expect to be witnesses, not indicted.  Otherwise its much less likely the lawyer would take them both.

I may not be a law talking man,  but i got my GED in legalise from Two and Half Seasons of Drop Dead Diva on Netflix University (i was salutatorian thank you) and they taught us all about building a Great Wall of China in the office for these cases.

I mean,  it sounds really expensive and time consuming to build a big, replica wall in the office, but i guess as long as you include the materials in the fees and the time spent building it were billable hours,  i don't see the harm

I'm jaded. I think the probe will finish, there will be court dates, many implicated will be convicted. We'll have a whole major party that colluded with a foreign power to steal an election and didn't care because it was "Helping their side", and people will go to jail for lengthy sentences. And none of the republican electorate will care. They're so jingoistic and put party so ahead of country, that we'll shortly see another republican president and congress, and everyone implicated in this will get pardoned en-masse.

That's not strictly speaking true. It's almost always a bad idea, it's usually a good way to run afoul of ethics rules, but there are times when it makes sense. It requires full disclosure of the risks and benefits to all clients, and the clients must be advised that if their interests become adverse, potentially or in fact, the attorney will be unable to represent any of them going forward. Also, it usually becomes impossible to retain client confidentiality as among the separate clients, especially if keeping confidentiality works to prejudice another client, and each client must be advised of the fact at the outset of representation. It's a dicey situation, but there are times when it's useful.

I don't find this too surprising. If I had a cop or FBI agent wanting me to come by the station so they could talk to me about anything I'd have a lawyer present. They aren't your friend, even if you've done nothing wrong and they aren't even looking at you like you did.

Anyone of these would be a fool to not have a lawyer by now.
So I guess it's shocking they have lawyers.

When I saw their pictures, for some reason, I saw Hope Hicks crumbling into a non-stop fountain of disclosure.  "I didn't sign up for this.  I'm too pretty to go to jail.  What do you want to know?"

Hope Hicks was a model who was working with Ivanka in some marketing thing and came from a rich family. She was handpicked by Trump to be a communicaton-whatever during the campaign and somehow became White House Communications Director.

She is just 28 farking years old with ZERO experience in politics until the past two years and yet she is considered to be one of Trump's closest confidants.

The results of her subpoena should be quite interesting as I expect Mueller to outright ask her if she's ever done anything of an "inappropriate" nature with Trump. If she said "no" and Mueller would be able to prove her wrong, holy cow. Even then, this is just ONE of many things to get Trump on.
