That Sinking Feeling

The editor/publisher at Talking Points Memo wrote a great little piece over the weekend (link here) speculating why Donald Trump's lawyers publicly pitched a fit when they learned Special Counsel Robert Mueller had obtained tens of thousands of transition emails as part of the criminal investigation into the President and his associates.

One reason might be their simple incompetence. Trump hires lawyers who fawn all over them and they're often not very good as a result. Seasoned sharks in suits want nothing to do with him because he's notorious for not paying his bills, but he desperately needs a lawyer who knows what he or she is doing.

Another reason might be that they're simply trying to whip up Trunk's shrinking base into pressuring Congress to stop Mueller. Not likely that will happen. While a few Trump lackeys on Capitol Hill are still carrying water for him, their numbers have dwindled.

The real reason, however, may be that Trump's lawyers have now realized the transition emails will reveal Trump and/or people close to him, including possibly his sons and daughter, as well as his son-in-law, lied to the FBI and other federal officials.

As Martha Stewart inmate would reluctantly tell you, lying to the feds is a sure-fire way to land yourself in prison. If Trump's children or son-in-law are charged, I suspect Trump would attempt to pardon them before they reached trial, which likely would trigger a constitutional crisis.

Stay tuned.

  1. OMG! Again, why can anyone SEE that Trumpty Dumpty is swimming in deep «shit».
    Such a manipulator and liar who is believing his own lies.

    «HE» thinks he is a KING or worst, a «dictator» that can do anything and even pardon those that goes against the law and the Constitution.

    It's more than time that Mueller shows the evidences of his felony and the way he bragged the election with the help of Putin.

    USA deserves better than that clown in office.
    This FARCE is such ridiculous from a Canadian point of view and surely from many other «civilised» countries of the world.
    Not surprising also that England doesn't want to see him on their ground.

    If «God Save America», God must do something FAST and have pity of your people that will suffer of his politics.
    «HE» is digging your national debt by 4 trillion of $$$ that will be a BIG weight on the shoulders of the next generations.

    So much to see for those who want to see.
