No shiat. That's evident from the many times Trump has contradicted his own lawyers by opening his fat mouth and letting random words fall out.

Lawyers have a special name for clients like this:  Profitable.

You'll forgive me if I don't believe a goddamn word Sanders says.

Isn't it weird, that one person says no discussion ever took place, the next one says that there was a discussion, but they didn't agree with it, and the third one says that he didn't discuss it with any *other lawyers*?

Trump? Is that you?

Trump doesn't need lawyers. He's never had to face up to anything he's ever done his whole life. He's definitely breaking the law and possibly committing treason right now and nothing will ever happen to him. Nothing will ever have to him and nothing ever will. Just accepting that will give you a little peace.

They're getting paid by the idiots giving money or buying gear for his 2020 campaign.  The rallies pay it.

So Yrump isn't going out of pocket, thus I think he's fine with the lawyers actually being paid ...with OPM.

good. Makes him easier to convict.

Who other than Trump wouldn't want Kushner gone?  He's only qualified to lose money in real estate and justify anti-nepotism laws

Bloody hell, that is one supervillain-looking picture they used.

With a helpfully ominous "Godfather II" picture of Kushner included.

It makes me sad that you are likely right. He will go to his grave never having suffered a whit for his actions. Makes me wish I believed in a afterlife.

Remember how many times you heard the phrase "both the president's lawyers" before the trump administration?

I was going to say most (although not many would touch Trump) top tier attorneys won't get stuffed. You fark with them and you Trump won't own shiat by the time he is done.

I think we all must have misheard him. He actually said he has the "beset words".

Only losers listen to their lawyers.  The haters can talk all they want, but Trump is a winner who doesn't need to follow laws.  Why, I bet he could shoot a person in the street and they would still vote for him.  He doesn't need to listen to the Republican party either.

Trump: "I told that lawyer man the only five letters I need to know are P, A, R, D, O and N".

Sometimes, however, those clients undergo a name change; as in "Inmate #XxXXXxx".

Have they tried this?

"We don't work with Trump because he doesn't take our advice and he doesn't pay his bills."
 
2017-09-12 09:38:09 PM  
That's because he has no consequences he never has and he never will somebody with that much money can pretty much do whatever the fark he wants.  it's all attention and that's all he really craves I hope he chokes on a farking dick

I doubt Sanders believes a damn word Sanders says.

Up until the lawyer becomes part of the show. And then you aren't a lawyer, you're a conspirator.

Most of Trumps lawyers have backed out before that. Look at how long it took to find a law firm that would work with Trump on the investigation.

Horse Hockey: "Pay the Bill" is #2 on the list of attorney demands for clients, right behind "Shut up, Shut up, For the love of God, Shut the Fark Up!"

Even the guy who represented Gotti turned Two Scoops down flat.

Here's a list of all the things he takes seriously:

His "brand".

Not a chance, unless he dies in office.

The day he walks out of the WH and goes back home to NY is the day that he's getting perp-walked through Manhattan streets.  And there's no chance a NY governor is ever going to pardon him.

I'd be amazed if the sealed arrest warrant hasn't already been issued.
 
2017-09-13 02:12:36 AM  
NOOOOO, nuh uh. He totally listens to his legal counsel while smearing his face with Lays and Diet Coke while watching Wheel of Fortune, why is it his fault when they interrupt the Final Spin?  Barbarians.

Why can't our president be a drunk instead of acting like a 34 y/o grandma in Arkansas who needs to weigh herself at the zoo?  But that's only on account a' the twins, I always have big babbys and my thyroid done don't work right. I watch what I eat!  It ain't my fault!  Why, I haven't eaten all day!  Just 3/4 of it.

Nixon didn't pardon himself.

I wonder why.

. . . except when it comes to weaseling out of paying taxes.
