I see, so you're not making a judgment about her appearance, you're talking about her personality? 
Yeah, I'm not making a judgment about her terrible appearance, because that would be very rude and not politically correct.

So what the f*ck was the point of this whole episode?  Throw the Trumpster fire under the bus in hopes that Mueller will forget about Stone?  I really don't get it.  The emails are there--they exist.  No matter what kind of distraction they attempt, the emails still show what they show.  And the Feds already have them.

I'm...disturbed that Trump hasn't had an executive time rant about Nunberg. Also, he was apparently emailed the subpoena? Hmmm


there were like eight different stories of varying degrees of damnability that got lost because of it. I get the feeling Stone played the media outlets again...

Besides asking about Stone's clients, what else did they ask about?
I don't know, it's a longer conversation. It's one in the morning, can I go to sleep?

I find it very interesting that the local right wing talk radio was talking exclusively about a local girls high school basketball game from a week ago this morning.  Obviously nothing else of import happened in the right wing derposphere yesterday.

How come conservatives aren't rioting in the streets that two dozen individuals have been indicted in a phony witch hunt nothingburger?  Isn't this the tyranny that we all knew would befall us someday?

I ask because I am doing Google searches like "one way plane ticket to russia" and I keep getting really weird search suggestions, like "hello this is robert mueller" and "say goodbye to your loved ones".  I think something is up.

My guess, a meltdown aided by drugs when Nunberg realized Stone is f$cked.  I don't think anyone put him up to this.

Among the stuff:
- It's too hard to cooperate and I said poopy things, so I'm not gonna do it.
- Everyone associated with the Trump campaign or Trump White House is being bankrupted by legal bills.
- He thinks it would be funny to arrest him.
- He thinks his lawyer is going to dump him.
- He started to spill on what the Mueller investigation asked him.
- Mueller's people asked if anyone spoke Russian in the Trump office.
- Mueller's people asked about Trump Tower Moscow.
- The way the investigation asked questions, Sam thinks Trump may have done something during the election.

Keep in mind that Sam Nunberg was fired in August of 2015.

At one point he says to Burnett about the Mueller interview that they were very nice and they told be that anything I told them about, they couldn't prosecute me on so I told them everything.  This man is apparently a licensed attorney.

LOL.

I'm not a lawyer, but I'm really curious if he's legally allowed to spill to other people, like people who could be actively under investigation, what he was asked and what he said to investigators.

Just because someone attended a law school (that accepts fully half of applicants), that doesn't mean he's a lawyer necessarily. It seems to be unknown at this point if he actually graduated or if he just left after a few years, and he doesn't seem to have ever worked as a lawyer.

Ooohhh gurl, Sam Nunberg is one shady queen. He should go on Rupaul's Drag Race to be the mean queen that everybody hates. "Sarah, I ain't going to say you ugly. Just look in a mirror, you'll figure it out."

Not clear.  He even says "I'm not an attorney" in the interview but he might have identified as a lawyer elsewhere.

Eh, anybody with law training is a lawyer. You have to be licensed to be an attorney-at-law.

And if this guy is licensed, he won't be for long.

Ari Melber's show yesterday was absolutely mesmerizing. That was as close to an intervention as I've seen on national TV.

And to whoever asked- no, Nunberg absolutely isn't allowed to talk to the other guys under investigation about said investigation. Obstruction of justice, soliciting perjury, potential witness tampering, etc.

Ha, thanks. In my language we only have one word. I meant the attorney-at-law one ;)

The Ari interview is already being called "historic", I noticed.

This is the best of what's left.

The interview in the farking article is the "sane" version of Sam Nunberg.

Somehow.
 
2018-03-06 12:15:13 PM  
I suspect Sarah Huckabee Sanders is going to be leaving the White House soon- not because of any scandal, but because she's arguably the most qualified senior person there. She stands up and takes abuse, day after day, never misses a beat, repeats the same screed that it is clear even she doesn't believe. I'm sure there is some corporate PR department (ahem, ExxonMobile, Monsanto, Comcast, etc.) that would pay her far more than she's making in the WH to repeat their corporate BS.

Heck, she has to realize there is no promotion path for her inside the WH since no one else can stand on a podium and spew nonsensical responses without a breakdown, so if she stays she's stuck. I just hope that she just does the old "yeah, here's my 2 weeks" about 15 days before something big *indictment* happens.

RJReves: Had it been established if Nunberg is the witness who leaked his subpoena on Friday?


It sure sounds like it. The real subpoena (at least the substance of it) came out, and it lines up perfectly with what came out on Friday.

I think this is partly a desperate attempt to control the news cycle, and partly to taint the investigation (everything from "leaks" to mentally incompetent pleas). Either way, Nunberg either threw himself, or was thrown, under the bus, but I don't think they expected so much to leak out. They gave Mueller enough investigative fodder to keep his team busy for another six months.
