So fucking stupid

If there’s one thing the First Family of Grifting has made great again, it’s Legal Twitter. Sure, the president is a threat to all living things. But it warms our hearts to log on every day and see a pack of lawyers descend on the latest Trumpland fuckery like a Doberman on a rawhide. Let’s watch them take apart Don Jr.’s bullshit testimony before the House Intelligence Committee yesterday. It is delicious!

Can’t Tell You Because … A LAWYER!

Lil’ Donny testified yesterday for more than eight hours, and only refused to discuss one particular conversation he had with his father after the infamous “If it’s what you say, I love it!” emails. Via WaPo,

Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) said Wednesday that Trump Jr. told the committee he did speak with his father about the Trump Tower meeting several days later, after emails showing he had accepted the meeting after being offered “dirt” on Clinton were made public. However, Trump Jr. declined to detail the conversation to the committee, indicating a lawyer had been present and he believed it was subject to attorney-client privilege.

Sorry, what? A LAWYER was present? Really? That’s what you’re going with?

Care to tell us who this A LAWYER was?

Was he your A LAWYER, DJ? Because if he’s your personal attorney, then your father’s presence negates the privilege. (And vice versa if he was your dad’s personal A LAWYER.)

And even if the A LAWYER was somehow representing both of you, there’s no privilege if it was part of a criminal conspiracy.

And by the way, if you talked about it to anyone else after that day, you waived the privilege.

Dude, when even THAT John Dean is laughing at you …

Thanks for the heads up!

The nice thing about the Trumps is that they always tell you exactly where they buried the body. If Poppy says Mueller better not look at the Trump Organization’s finances, you know damn well that’s where the evidence is. And if Don Jr. was willing to discuss everything but the conversation he had with his father after the New York Times story, you know that meeting is where shit went down.

EXACTLY. Of course Congress isn’t going to do a damn thing about it. They let that demented leprechaun Jeff Sessions make up a privilege to avoid answering questions before the Senate.

But that shit is not going to fly with Robert Mueller. That guy made Paul Manafort’s own lawyer testify against him. So good luck trying that shit with the special counsel.

You want to plead the 5th, knock yourself out, DJ. As for attorney-client privilege, that dog won’t hunt.

When all else fails, blame the help!

And we see you trying to dump this shit on Hope Hicks, Junior! Via CNN,

Donald Trump Jr. told House investigators that he did not communicate directly with his father when confronted with news reports about his June 2016 Trump Tower meeting, according to multiple sources with knowledge of his testimony.

Instead, Trump Jr. said he was speaking to White House aide Hope Hicks about how to respond to the reports. He said President Donald Trump, according to the sources, was debating between a longer and a shorter statement while the President and Hicks were aboard Air Force One.

Okay, let’s just say for the sake of argument that this is actually how it went down. Lil’ Dipshit hollered into his Obamaphone, “Dad, I am a jackass who sent emails about Russian dirt on Hillary.” And then Hicks turned to the president and said, “He says he’s a jackass who sent emails about Russian dirt on Hillary.” They drafted that whole bullshit statement about bouncy Russian babies and she never handed over the phone or pressed speakerphone because … reasons. Fine, whatever.

But don’t go pretending that your father is out of the loop because he doesn’t do email.

There is no plausible deniability because you forwarded emails to Hicks instead of your father. Literally no one believes that the 29-year-old who steams your father’s baggy pants while they hang off his bloated carcass is the end user.

Hicks may be young, but her money is old. NFW she fell on her sword when Mueller interviewed her last month. If anyone’s walking out of that dumpster fire unscathed it’s Hope Hicks. She’s even smart enough to stay off Twitter, unlike some people …

Oh, Junior … you have no idea what’s about to hit you.

Please hit us WITH MONEY! We will turn it into further giggles over the Trump’s super-amazing legal strategery!

    1. Mueller subpoenas Junior.
    2. Mueller asks Junior what he told Pop.
    3. Junior invokes attorney-client privilege.
    4. Mueller instructs Junior that privilege does not apply.
    5. Junior says “Does too!”
    6. ?

    Unless Mueller is prepared to jail Junior for contempt, the privilege might as well exist.

    • ariel_gee_398

      Mueller asks who the lawyer present was, hauls them in, and says they probably ought to consider cooperating if they want to keep their license.

      • Msgr_MΩment

        Juicy. That brings in the state bar association. Your pardon is invalid.

      • Bigby

        I’m not exactly sure that’s much of a threat to a Drumpf lawyer. “Lose my license but get six, seven, *eight* figures? Orrrr, spill all and maybe get offed by a Putin Po209 enema or a teatard psycho assassin? Hmmmm….”.

        • Msgr_MΩment

    Obviously, he was a bit confused — remember he is a callow lad of a mere 39 years of age. He cited the wrong privilege. He meant to invoke the “rich white man privilege” which is absolute and universally recognized as long as you’re a registered Republican.

            I’ve been using the word wrong for years then. :-(

            I thought it was an ersatz or cloying version of pathos. Like the difference between Lou Gehrig’s farewell speech and Jimmy Swaggart crying on TV.

          • Latverian Diplomat

            That’s a common usage of bathos, whether correct or not can only be settled by nude oil wrestling between prescriptivists and descriptivists.

          • Latverian Diplomat

            It’s not necessarily intentional, and when used as a criticism, is generally meant to imply an unintentional use of bathos.

    OT: I joked about this in the gowdy thread (like EXACTLY this), but here we are:

    The Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee lambasted the FBI on Thursday over how it handled an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, and questioned whether Justice Department officials gave her preferential treatment over President Donald Trump.

    During a routine oversight hearing before the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, Republicans questioned FBI Director Christopher Wray, who took over at the helm of the Federal Bureau of Investigation after Trump abruptly fired the previous head, James Comey, earlier this year.

    ““The FBI’s reputation as an impartial, non-political agency has been called into question recently. We cannot afford for the FBI – which has traditionally been dubbed the premier law enforcement agency in the world – to become tainted by politicization or the perception of a lack of even-handedness,” Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte said.”

    • Skwerl the Taco Hunter

    • Covfefe

      Crystal, everyone who has practiced law for a couple of years has had jackasses like Junior for clients.

      • Crystalclear12

        So he’s nothing special?

    • miss_grundy

      Especially when he isn’t paying his bills.

  • It’s true that if a attorney was in the meeting who was formally representing someone in the meeting then that attorney could possibly invoke attorney-client privilege.

    It’s the representing attorney who’s not supposed to divulge, and even then there are limits to that shield. Lil Donnie doesn’t get to use that excuse.

    The one he should be trying for is the 5th Amendment “non self-incrimination” thing.

    He doesn’t generally seem to be very good about that one.

    • JordanLanham

      IF the attorney present in the meeting was formally representing everyone at the meeting.

  • Resistance Fighter Callyson

    Republicans on the committee indicated they were satisfied with Trump Jr.’s answers but declined to discuss the substance of the hearing. Still, Schiff said he hoped they would compel fuller answers from the younger Trump.

    “I don’t think my colleagues on the other side of the aisle would dispute the fact that as to this very central conversation between father and son, the witness declined to answer the question,” he said.

    In other words:

  • MynameisBlarney
    • miss_grundy

      My feelings exactly as expressed by the commenter at Democratic Underground. When will our side learn how to play this political game? You still have a sexual harasser/probable rapist/groper sitting in the White House and a pedophile who will be taking Sessions’ seat in the Senate. But let’s throw someone under a bus due to “allegations” that have not been investigated. I hope that Karma exists big time and I hope it swings in the direction of Kirsten Gillebrand so we can see the purity ponies cry their eyes out when she is booted out based on “allegations” against her.

    • jesterpunk

      So we have just shown republicans that investigations dont matter and they just have to accuse a democrat of harassment and we will run them out of town. Great jobs folks, meanwhile Footy Pajama guy is still in office, Trump is still in office and Republicans are about to elect a child molester and dont care what they do as long as they vote for tax cuts for the super rich. Franken should have stayed until the ethics investigation completed and followed there suggestions.

  • SDGeoff3

    Senator Franken just announced his resignation.

    • UncleTravelingMatt

      Our long national nightmare is over. Now that a Democrat accused of wrongdoing has resigned, we can move on. Sexual harassment is over!

      Congratulations Senator Gillibrand! You have eliminated one of your strongest opponents for the 2020 primaries. You are now that much closer to losing to Trump, assuming the Republicans don’t use allegations to drive you out the Senate before then now that they know how easy it is.

  • Covfefe

    Franken is going to stick around long enough to vote against the tax bill.

    • Joe Beese

      Yeah, because we can’t trust his Democratic replacement to do the same thing.

      Lying piece of shit to the end.

      • Villago Delenda Est

        Joe, the replacement won’t be there in time.

        Your Bernie idiocy is flaring up again. See a physician.

        • Joe Beese

          How long should it take for Dayton to name a replacement? With this resignation having been in the cards for weeks now?

          • Anna Rompage

            He has to name a replacement, and then that replacement needs to be sworn in…

            Seeing that Mitch “The Dick” McConnell stalled on Obama’s SCOTUS pick, it would not surprise me if he did the same thing with any dems replacements…

          • Spotts1701, Nothingburger Chef

            This. The VP swears new Senators in, and you can bet your bottom dollar Pence is going to slow walk it as long as he can to give the GOP a bigger edge.

          • keinsignal

            Longer than you might think. While they have a slate of possible replacements, a lot of them don’t seem to want the job. Many of them are already in office (the state AG and Lt Gov are two of the names being floated), meaning they’d be starting a domino chain of appointments that is going to take some work to finalize, and at least one other has already put significant resources into campaigning for the Governorship and doesn’t seem eager to throw that away.

            Then you’ve got concerns over who’s going to be able to keep that seat in the next election. MN’s a weird state that way, you’ve got a solidly Democratic metro area that’s almost but not quite enough to carry a statewide election, so you need someone who can compete in the suburbs and win whatever’s left of the Iron Range. Which is just one of the reasons why I hope to fuck they don’t put Ellison there, that would be just about the dumbest play imaginable.

          • miss_grundy

            Have you learned nothing from the last election cycle regarding the machinations of the Republican party?????? Have you????? If you are one of “those people”– a purity pony — well I can tell you that you haven’t gained anything at all. You cost us having someone who would not disgrace the office in the Oval right now. Instead, thanks to people like you, we have to live through this international shame of a soap opera. I don’t want to hear from you for the rest of the day.

      • MynameisBlarney

        How do you know he’s lying?
        There has been no ethics investigation. Only mob rule.

      • canes_pugnaces

        Your proof that he’s lying is what? Your rather harsh slur seems more in keeping with the Breitbart school of comments.

      • Rags

        So Franken is a lying piece of shit. And 4-5 is a lying piece of shit. This is simply debasing the language and creating what I hope you consider a false equivalency.

  • Anna Rompage

        I agree. This is a shitshow. I think he should have waited for the investigation.
        The Republicans will characterize this as a Democratic circular firing squad, a weak man who was hounded out of office by a bunch of politically correct feminazi harridans.

        • ltmcdies

          yup…even though there are number of Democratic men asking for the same.
          not to mention…it seems justifiable to attack the accusers as “GOP sympathizers, etc” which just gets the whole sexual harassment conversation back to a bad place overall.
          It’s just bad.

      • Old Man Yells at Cloud

        There is one good thing. It shows the Democratic party leadership for what it is. And everyone can interpret that how they see fit.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      That’s pretty much what it is all about. His “offenses” are testified to by GOP operatives and anonymous sources. And his “offenses” are ridiculously trivial compared to Conyer’s or Farenthold’s.

    So what you’re saying is that Hope Hicks is the evil mastermind behind all of this? She colluded with Russia for her own nefarious reasons, and used Trump’s cash as bait, after putting him in a vulnerable position years ago by driving his casinos into bankruptcy and making him look like a terrible businessman. It’s all clear now — get rid of her, and the Trump administration will finally emerge as the righteous, beneficent paragon of social and economic justice that people always saw it to be.

    OT: From the UK’s Popbitch

    “As the New York Times doggedly continues to unpick the many threads of the Weinstein story, we were interested to see them mention that Weinstein was considered an “F.O.P.” – a “Friend Of Pecker”.

    Who is this Pecker? David J Pecker, the CEO of American Media Inc and publisher of the National Enquirer.

    And how did the relatively unknown Pecker come to gain such influence over a dishonourable but powerful sex offender? Who knows. But we know where he cut his teeth. His first big job was publishing a vanity magazine for a luxury real estate developer. A little title by the name of… Trump Style.”

      • BigCSouthside

        The right precedent to set would have been to have the investigation. It sets up a procedural way to handle these situations. The precedent we set is we will old yeller anyone as long as they have a few accusations against them, regardless of their credibility.

        We handed the morally bankrupt GOP a way to politically assassinate any effective democrat

        • jesuswasablack

          • BigCSouthside

            Here what’s even worse, I saw it twice last night: the GOP messaging is now that since he resigned he must be guilty and is therefore WORSE than Trump or Moore.

          • jesuswasablack

          Why aren’t they willing to come forward and state their names? Why hide in the dark? Heck, a corporate news organization just gave women who came out publicly against sexual harassment “The Person of the Year” award. What do these women have to lose if their claims are factual? Nothing. They will win the approbation of the crowd and be considered heroes in the fight against sexual harassment.

          • IdRatherBeDancing

            “What do these women have to lose if their claims are factual? Nothing.” You are kidding, right? If I have learned nothing from this #MeToo campaign is that most women have a fucking lot to lose when they come forward. First, they are nationally branded as liars or have you not been paying attention to Trump, O-Reilly, Moore, Ailes, Cosby etc. And that is before they are publicly smeared.I seriously cannot believe you think they have nothing to lose. SMDH.

          • miss_grundy

            Shake your damn head all you want. You have just handed the Republicans the 2018 and 2020 elections. Do you see any of those GOP guys leaving, even though they are harassers/gropers/rapists? No! They are going to stay. Meanwhile, the purity pony Democrats will run anyone out of office and will remain the minority and will even wind up losing seats because we refuse to allow an investigation to go forward. Shake your damn head all you want. And don’t come crying to me when Dems lose more seats in the 2018 election because we allowed ourselves to be played. Get your head out of the sand (and I am being polite by saying sand.)

          • IdRatherBeDancing

            Lighten the fuck up Francis. And please explain your demonstrably untrue statement that women have NOTHING to lose when they accuse public and powerful men of sexual harassment. I’ll be waiting over here ——> listenting to crickets. And I won’t be so polite. Fuck off.

          • miss_grundy

            Fuck off, asshole. How do you know that those anonymous accusers aren’t Republican operative?. Have you learned nothing about the Republican party from the last 57 years? These are the people who gave us Roger Stone, Lee Atwater, Richard Nixon, who believed because he was president he was above the law–does that sound familiar. We are now living at a time when women are coming out and facing their accusers and those women who are willing to go public are being lionized by the press and they got their Time magazine cover. And this isn’t a cricket post. And you can go to hell because just like every other male chauvinist pig, you believe that you are the only one who has a right to an opinion. Go eat feces!

            I want Franken to get his investigation. I want every charge to be vetted. But purity ponies like you are willing to be useful idiots for the Republican party. I guess your kind will never learn. I hope you are happy as the Democrats remain the minority party, while the Republicans leave their sexual harassers/serial pedophiles in place in the House and Senate.

            Is this in any way similar to the women who were trotted out to claim harassment by Bill Clinton during the campaign?

          It does – and the women with the photograph kicked it off via Roger Stone.

          • Cousin Itt un Mondialiste

            Was the woman ok with the pretend groping? There really is not a lot of upside for women or men now to make allegations.

            Why is it so difficult to just admit that predatory behavior is something we need to deal with?

        • miss_grundy

          Because when you are having your picture taken with someone and they brush their hand against your waist or try to put their arm around you and accidentally swipe, that means they are sexual predators? I guess from now on, everyone–men and women– need to keep their hands in their pockets when they are standing next to each other to have a photo taken so s/he cannot be charged with sexual harassment/groping, etc.

          • Cousin Itt un Mondialiste

    Since we’re discussing Hope Hicks, has anybody else ever gotten the impression that she’s like a poor man’s version of Bellatrix Lestrange of the Trump administration?

    • h4rr4r

      I think it is more likely she is a victim of some terrible stuff.

      • george lastrapes

        She certainly has the look of an innocent, and it doesn’t hurt that she is not a nanoskirted spraytanned bleachblonde of the type so much in favor in RWworld. She just seems too nice, too good to be part of the Strumpet’s Creepshow.

        • h4rr4r

          Yeah, I am pretty sure any woman in arms reach has been assaulted in that whitehouse.

          • george lastrapes

            Maybe it will all come out in the wash, or wash out with the come, or something like that…..

    • Anna Rompage

      I thought she was just aligning herself to be the next D J Trump, after Meania ages out…

    • TJ Barke

      She’s too withdrawn. Bellatrix was brazen.

      • Juan de Fuca

        True but she kinda played a supporting role and was Lord Voldemort’s most dedicated follower. I dunno. Could just be me but if the old saying life imitating is true, I’d keep my eyes on that one.

      • george lastrapes

        Could she play the same role which Alexander Butterworth played in l’affaire Watergate? If I remember correctly? She’s got that honest-against-the-odds look, as though she was carefully chosen from Central Casting lists.

    • Gigglesnort

      Not crazy enough. But enabling the bad guy, yeah.

    • SDGeoff3

      (The wind has arrived down here, and it looks like we’re bringing the holiday decorations inside, like right now.)

      • Juan de Fuca

        Dude, the wind is crazy right now. I checked the weather report and it said to expect 80mph wind gusts today.

        • SDGeoff3

          Holy guacamole! I have not been following this at all. LA should be a scary place today too.

    • Lance Thrustwell

      And Kellyanne Conway is the Argus Filch.

      • James Smith

        Who’s the rat then?

    • oh fuck that noise. i JUST finished rewatching sorcerer’s stone and i SWORE i wasn’t going to get caught up in the series again and here – as i type – i’m heading for the DVD cabinet for chamber of secrets.

      grrr arrh foiled again.

  • Relativicus
  • Lefty Wright

    Right. Trump never sees any emails. Like Junior and Eric are running all of his companies. Every meeting for Trump companies likely begins with “Dad says”.

    • James Smith

      “Daddy”

    • phoenix00

      Don’t forget Kushner. Even if he’s “on assignment” peaceing the Middle East.

  • Phoenixdoglover

    Emphemeral TLM sighting, methinks.

  • TundraGrifter

    So when Hunter Thompson was driving a hundred miles an hour through the Nevada desert he didn’t have to pull over for the Highway Patrol because he had his Samoan lawyer with him?

    • SDGeoff3

      Probably.

    • Donna Mueller

      “As your lawyer, i recommend that you drink heavily!!!”

  • Lance Thrustwell

    {tap tap}. Is this thing on? I was just going to give TLM down there a warm greeting, but it wouldn’t take my non-comment.

    • SDGeoff3

      Yup. Same here.

    • Cosmic Owl

      Your Loving Banhammer is at work.

      • BearDeLaOursistance

        I’d love to see a Psychology Hammer at work as well. Quite aside from his overall obsession with Gheysexxxicanism, what kind of logic leaves “erect ramrod” and “semen” intact, but bowdlerizes “butthole”? Inquiring minds want to know!

        • Courser_Resistance

          His peener must have calluses from all that self-hating beating off.

    • TJ Barke

      Yeah, wtf, he can spew shit, but we can’t respond?

      • Lance Thrustwell

        Maybe he’s outside the force field now. I was just going to say “how’s our favorite closeted self-loathing gay possibly cybernetic organism?

        • TJ Barke

          I was gonna tell him to come up with new material.

          • Lance Thrustwell

            He never listens.

      • Cosmic Owl

        When the Banhammer comes down, he is gone when you refresh the page.

        • Arolpin

          I vote fro disemvoweling him but leaving the desiccated husk of a non-comment up so that we can heap abuse upon him. I had a really pithy comment about how I couldn’t understand what he was saying with all the cocks in his mouth that I couldn’t non-comment because his non-comment was now an ex-non-comment.

          • BearDeLaOursistance

            It’s pining for the fjords! Or whatever the hell they have in Russia.

          • Arolpin

            I think they have klepts, since it’s a kleptocracy.

      Slight correction: He’d think that show title was three words.

  • fawkedifiknow

    For whatever it’s worth (nothing), Hope Hicks is not hard to look at – purely from a material evidentiary perspective, mind you.

    • Lord Jim

      I dunno. She’s kinda got that Michael-Jackson’s-lost-twin-sister look goin’, but you do you. :D

      • Roadstergal

        She kinda has that Donald-Trump-enabler-wrecker-of-our-democracy going on.

        • Bebecca

          I think she said after she was questioned recently that she wasn’t going to jail for donald trump.

    • James Smith

      Do you really want to be an eskimo brother with Mr. Cheeto’s wild ride?

  • Fartknocker

    I wish I had that attorney-client privelage when I was nine years old because Dad was cool with me going fishing but Mom always some silly shit for me to do like mowing yards, cleaning my room, walking up hill to school both ways in the snow while wearing Wonderbread bags on our feet, etc.

    • Teto85

      We had to use store brand bread bags.

      • Mona

        You had bread?

        • Teto85

          Our neighbors did. We hd to steal the bags out of their trash can.

          • Mona

            Our neighbors trash can was our guest house….

          • Teto85

            A guest house implies that you had a main house. Lucky. ;-)

  • Wookie Monster

    Is there anything Hope Hicks won’t do with Trump’s pants?

  • Scrofula

    These guys could’ve had a fun time squeezing random made-up legal excuses from Jr. All the way to “I smelled it, I couldn’t have dealt it!”

    • Ωbjectifier

      That case law was settled in He Who Denied v. He Who Supplied.

  • Royal Ugly Dude
    • Mehmeisterjr

      Trump would be lucky to have Snoopy as an attorney but a) He can’t afford him and b) Snoopy is already working for Mueller.

      • phoenix00

        He’s got his hands full dealing with that useless twat Charlie Brown fgs

    • phoenix00

      Not even a common Woodstock

  • Carpe Vagenda

    Lewandowski was fired, among other things, for being publicly abusive to Hope Hicks, and both he and Roger Stone shopped a story to journalists afterwards that she and the very-married-with-kids Lewandowski were banging (with a strong suggestion that she was embittered that he broke it off). I’m not sure why folks are buying in to this Hope Hicks steaming Trump’s nuts story from his book. It feels Brazile-level accurate to me.

    • Viktor

      I thought they sued some guy after they fired him for pushing that story. And he was counter suing. I’m trying to grasp the reason why they would push the cheating story.

      • Carpe Vagenda

        My guess would be that because there were reports that he and she had a loud fight and he was fired afterwards, he and his buddy Stone wanted the story to be that she was being vindictive about a bad breakup rather than pretty much everyone just wanting him gone.

  • Viktor

    My comment was going to be awesome, unfortunately it’s covered under attorney client privilege.

    • Mehmeisterjr

      Your comment is actually a non-comment and therefore not privileged.

  • Mehmeisterjr

    All of Donald J. Trump’s tweets are privileged communications under the rule of res ipse whatever because a lawyer somewhere probably read them.

  • Poly_Ester

    Was the lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, by any chance, there for a follow-up meeting with the big dog?

  • ltmcdies
  • James Smith

    Does Hope Hicks have a thing for that tiny-handed cheeto?

    • Mehmeisterjr

      As the old saying goes, Hope Hicks eternal.

  • James Smith

    I can only imagine the crude things trump said to hicks while she steamed his pants

  • chicken thief

    What’s with the binder Hicks is carrying? Does she take copious notes like Spicer was alleged to do?

    • Thorn Spike

      It’s the binder of women Trump has sexually assaulted. Volume One.

    • The Militant Homosexual Agenda

      That’s Trump’s coloring book.

    $5F, I do love it when you lawsplain. I am not now and have never been an attorney, but I’ve worked for enough of them, from solo practitioners to huge international firms, to understand everything. Well done.

  • Maybe

    Personally I carry a miniature lawyer in my pocket everywhere I go. That way I don’t have to tell no stinkin’ investigators nothing, ever.

    Although if I tell them I see miniature lawyers they may lock me up on general principles.
