I feel real sorry for the Secret Service Agent who had to investigate this because his protectee is a goddamned moron with an idiot in law running call screening.

If the Secret Service charges Stuttering John with anything, Avenatti will press for Kushner and Trump to testify...

What is the alleged wrongdoing on the part of Stuttering John? Nothing in the phone call was threatening and in fact he was acting very conciliatory and deferential to Trump (probably how he was able to get through.)

The closest I can think is a possible violation of 18 U.S. Code § 912 but that requires someone demand or obtain "a thing of value" which doesn't seem to apply here.

He called Trump and said he was Lyle and Erik Menendez. It was embarrassing because he got a pardon.

Jensaarai: I've lost the plot. Who is this person and what happened?


Somehow, "Stuttering" John Melendez (most famous as a member of The Howard Stern Show from 1988 to 2004) managed to prank-call Donald farking Drumpf (somehow the farking President) on Air Force One, while posing as Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ). And Jared farking Kushner (an idiot) personally connected the call.
 
2018-07-02 01:38:12 AM  

Jensaarai: I've lost the plot. Who is this person and what happened?


Former Howard Stern personality called the White House pretending to be Senator Menendez (D-NJ) wanting to congratulate Trump on how great he's doing and hint he might be willing to offer him political support on certain things going forward. Currently it sounds like the standard White House procedure of contacting Menendez's office confirmed that the Senator was not reaching out to the President, but Jared Kushner had already forwarded the call to his father-in-law.

As far as the conversation itself, nothing of significance happened (they both praised each other and hinted at working together going forward but no supposed horse-trading). Biggest thing was Trump claimed Menendez had been treated very unfairly in his court case (he emerged victorious from a political corruption case that was a slam-dunk under the Stevens criteria but now in the McDonnell era they couldn't find quid pro quo so he was found innocent. Then he won his primary because nothing matters.)

The only thing he obtained was proff that the Trump admin is incompetent from toe to cheeto tip.

Which everyone knows already.

So you're right, he may as well have aquired an ice cube in antarctica.

Stuttering John should have waited to play the recording of the prank to see if trump quotes his fake Menendez or mentions the call in any way, then play the recording. That would add another layer of stupid humiliation.

Look, every person with an IQ above room temperature knows that Trump is an easily duped moron. But we should have a sense of accomplishment every time someone embarrasses him live, and it pisses him off, and he can't do anything about it. That really should happen often... as often as possible, honestly.

That may not be true

In construing 18 U.S.C. §  912 and its predecessors, the courts generally have ascribed a twofold purpose to the statute: to protect innocent persons against fraud and to preserve the dignity and good repute of the federal service. See United States v. Lepowitch, 318 U.S. 702, 704 (1943); United States v. Barnow, 239 U.S. 74, 80 (1915); Honea v. United States, 344 F.2d 798, 803 (5th Cir. 1965). The gist of the offense, however, is the false personation of federal officers.


Also, depending on where AF1 was during the call, a state wiretapping statute might apply. I would think it's like

This is simple.  The secret service has a long history of enjoying women of questionable morals.  Stuttering John knows lots of women of questionable morals.  It's a supply and demand thing.  Capitalism at it's finest.

I think that you can be busted if you claim to be a Senator for some kind of financial gain but that probably falls under fraud (or some such) legislation.   If I just called you and said I was a senator and "let's chat" I don't think that I could be charged with anything.

I had heard about the prank call, didn't know it was Stuttering John.  Haven't heard anything of him in forever, but I haven't listened to Stern since about 1991.

Dumb to consider it anything more than a prank call, though.

Problem: Trump 
A) Hates being embarassed
B) Literally cannot let anything go. Like, he is still bothered by the fact that Spy magazine made fun of his hands ~30-40 years ago.
