Where is this meeting being held tomorrow - At the WH???

I am a skeptic - I am not a conspiracy nut, trust, but verify kinda gal..so, if this meeting with the FBI and republiklans is taking place in the WH, with COS Kelly - who is to say the room will be secured?

If at the WH, why not hold the meeting at the FBI? Been buggin' me..no pun intended...

It is a figure of speech - "Toast" - a metaphor..no one is suggesting he should be

disbarred...considering the time, effort, and considerable amount of money it takes to actually get to the bar exam..if I were his mother or father I would wash his mouth out with soap...

Me thinks he has shot himself in the foot , metaphorically speaking, of course...what FIRM would hire him now..let alone a client walking into his store - Trump, maybe or his ilk...

oh, that's right, the building where he rents an office - they want nothing to do with him...just one question to this miscreant, "have you no decency"

I often ask, is it nature, or nurture....

The young fellow in the video demonstrated more civility than this jerk..

Be well, Jim Lane, congrats on passing the bar..and not evah having a complaint registered against you..

That Russia-Trump Thing..Shugerblog, Masterful Timeline w/links

Russia’s sale of Rosneft Gas is the key event in the Steele Dossier’s quid pro quo allegation. On June 2016, Russians allegedly offer Trump associates a massive payout derived from the commissions on Russia’s sale of 19.5% of state energy giant Rosneft ($11 billion), in return for lifting sanctions.

Weeks after the election, Flynn and Kushner are in contact with Russian officials. Then Russia sells a 19.5% stake in Rosneft in a concealed deal, eventually revealed to be with Qatar. Immediately after the deal, a Qatari diplomat allegedly met with Cohen and Flynn at Trump Tower.


Jed Shugerman - at shugerblog.com - was on with Rachel tonight..and just blew me away with his investigative reporting on this Russia/trump thingy..he also writes for Slate...Professor at Fordham and a true American Patriot..if you have any questions about this subject, I implore you to read his blog..

What is an OLC opinion vs a Judiciary Opinion

Chris should have had this RWNJ debate others who understand that the OLC opinion is

an Executive opinion..NOT a judiciary opinion....I bet the RWNJ would not have appeared if that was the format...like invite Bob Bauer WH counsel for our President Obama..here is just a how he sizes up the Nixon Long Shadow and the judiciary...

a special counsel should not consider himself bound by an opinion of executive branch lawyers that turns on its head, and to the executive’s advantage, what the courts have made plain about their role in adjudicating the scope of presidential immunities from legal process. The special counsel is charged under the regulations with investigating and prosecuting federal crimes. If the special counsel has cause to believe that the president committed such, he should pursue the testimony that he needs and bring charges if the evidence supports them.


https://www.justsecurity.org/55655/nixons-long-shadow-donald-trumps-emerging-constitutional-defense-investigation-and-indictment/

I had to read the legal analysis several times to understand what Bob Bauer was getting at...thus the excerpt - have at it...

Be well all, we will get through this...

This is the conclusion of the article

The president has the option, of course, of invoking his Fifth Amendment rights.

Or, as appears increasingly possible, Mr. Trump and his lawyers can turn for inspiration to the Nixon presidency and the Watergate era and make his case for the president’s immunity from criminal investigation and prosecution. There is little reason to believe that the results will be any different 44 years later.
