Why would you need a lawyer if you did nothing wrong conservatives?


And Subby is he a maniac like Elijah Wood, or Joe Spinell, or William Woods?

Anybody who is surprised that Trump doesn't give a shiat about underlings has obviously not been paying attention to the history of him.

The Republican National Committee declined to comment on helping ex-staffers with legal bills, but a source "familiar with the situation" told the Examiner that they were "on their own".

But of course.

But the children didn't do anything wrong! You can't make them suffer because of their parents choices! Amnesty, uh, free college for everyone!

I feel bad for the professional staff though. Imagine being the guy who serves him his apple pie and he screams at you for ten minutes because he thinks he said cherry.

Now I want pie.

Donald Trump had an admitted mafia guy and convict on stage with him at his New Years Party after wonning the election.

Are you somehow surprised that he might -just might- have a blind spot the size of a planetoid where appearances of impropriety are concerned?

You get in bed with THAT and you will wake up needing a shower and a cocktail of antibiotics.  And every person with a pulse could tell you so.

Count it as a lesson for your kid in bad life choices.  Specifocally the ones daddy made.  And to not be alone with Incle Donnie if your a blonde female....

He probably wouldn't notice what kind of pie it is as long as he got the extra scoop of ice cream.

Some reward for loyal service to President Trump

Loyalty is a one-way street for Trump. This should have been blindingly obvious from the get-go.

The kids can always join the military. Just sayin'.

And if not, there are hundreds of thousands of Americans who have to take out loans to fund most or all of their college tuition. The kids will be fine.

Or they think their plan will ultimately obviate the need for legal defense.

spongeboob: Why would you need a lawyer if you did nothing wrong conservatives?


If Trump was my boss I'd be lawyering up, and I haven't done anything. Hell; it isn't hard to argue that one of the founding principles of this country is that those who have done nothing wrong are often those most in need of lawyers.

And Subby is he a maniac like Elijah Wood, or Joe Spinell, or William Woods?

I'm thinking Michael Sembello. Did you see that inaugural ball footage?
 
2017-09-16 11:59:11 PM  
That is just awful! I can't imagine anyone has ever felt let down by Trump before.

Why do they even hire lawyers? None of them are ever going to serve more than 3 weeks in Golf Camp For Rich White Men.

Shouldn't kids with parents who work/worked in the WH be able to get a Senator to appoint them to one of the service academies?
Or do they not want to turn out like Carter Page?

It's not an accident that Obama's presidency was largely scandal-free. His former ethics adviser, Norm Eisen, began to craft an ethics plan for the administration months before the 2008 election. When Obama won, Eisen began implementing these plans with other White House aides ― including Chris Lu, who served as assistant to the president and later as deputy secretary of labor, and the late Cassandra Butts. Obama himself got engaged in the planning, reportedly making line-edits to the guidelines, according to Eisen.

Maybe they're 529 plans that they are tapping into? And there's a penalty for doing so?

Well, that and he ran an ethical office, but you can read malfeasance into having a plan to make sure your obeyed the law if you wan to...

When the Clintons left the White House they were broke. The reason: lawyer's fees for defense. Of course they made lots of money later but as far as the system was concerned the had to pay for defense no matter who wrongful the prosecution was or how much they had been exonerated.

Of course the usual retards flamed at Hillary for stating the truth on this.

Turnabout is a biatch.

Sorry but I have no sympathy for people who cozy up to Trump in order to gain power and wealth by forming a kleptocracy.

Withdraw funds from a 529 or Coverdell ESA fund.

If withdrawals are not used for qualified educational expenses, they are taxed as ordinary income, plus an additional 10% tax penalty.

Hundreds of thousands? I think you're lowballing it a bit there.

FTFA:

Another aide, who spoke anonymously to the Examiner, strongly attacked the President for having "hung us out to dry".

"Multi-billionaire Donald Trump has a moral obligation to pay the mounting legal bills of his advisers who are facing four-, five- and six-figure costs just for doing their jobs," the ex-staffer said.


Lol. Trump doesn't pay bills to people who've done work for him - you know, legal obligations.

Good luck collecting on your "moral" obligation.

I am a firm believer that no one should ever talk to the police without a lawyer, especially if they are telling you you don't need a lawyer and they just want to ask you a few questions. Remember the cops are allowed to lie to you.  I also think you should never give permission for the police to search your person or property, they want to search get a warrant.

But conservatives often say if you did nothing wrong why do you need a lawyer, and even worse the whole the cops wouldn't arrest an innocent person.

Because Trump will implicate anyone before himself. It's basically all he does. Still... They deserve it.

Cops and prosecutors can't wait to depose your innocent arse.  Filegate, Travelgate and the like cost Clinton staffers a fortune. Next thing you know, you lie about an extramarital affair thinking it's no one's business and you owe your soul to lawyers.  Get one up front no matter how innocent you think you are

Jared Kushner clearly learned less than nothing from his own father's imprisonment.
