The United States of America is about to be saved by a porn star

…we live in interesting times.

Today’s front-page Washington Post report, headlined “A bomb on Trump’s front porch,” which is a just-as-interesting way of putting things:

…the FBI’s seizure on Monday of privileged communications between Trump and his private lawyer, Michael D. Cohen — as well as documents related to a $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels, the adult-film actress who has alleged a sexual affair with Trump — was a particularly extraordinary move that opens a whole new front in the converging legal battles ensnaring the administration.

Cohen is Trump’s virtual vault — the keeper of his secrets, from his business deals to his personal affairs — and the executor of his wishes.

“This search warrant is like dropping a bomb on Trump’s front porch,” said Joyce White Vance, a former U.S. attorney in Alabama.

…Tim O’Brien, author of the Trump biography “Trump Nation,” said the seizure of records from his private attorney probably would “smell of a mortal threat” by Trump. And, O’Brien added, “He is historically prone not to sit back and let the chips fall where they may. He is historically prone to come out with guns blazing.”

Cohen has long been a fixer for Trump, as well as his family and business, and associates said he was disappointed when he was not brought officially on board the campaign, and again when he was passed over for a coveted White House job.

“He’s done the dirty work that the president hasn’t wanted to do himself, and he’s been doing it for a decade,” O’Brien said.

    As you often say, it’s not the original act that brings politicians down, it’s the cover up.

    Well Bill Clinton had a teenager under his oval office desk having a good blow and Bill said, “I did not have sex with that woman”. and he is still a national hero and Hillary thinks Its Ok too so I doubt this will stick.

    Warren,

    Why in the world is he so mad? After all, according to himself it’s nothing more than Fake News. Fox News resurrection report at 11.

    This raid wasn’t conducted by Mueller, although it may have been based on information uncovered by Mueller and passed to the FBI.

    The kinds of things Russia is accused of are never done by Russian government officials, but by Putin friendly firms as part of the price they pay for Putin to remain their friend.

      Also, by using the NT AG I believe it becomes a State issue/trial and that does not allow Trump to pardon Cohen if he is found guilty of anything.

    Warren, you’re a lawyer. You know just how out of bounds this was. It should send a chill down the spine of any American knowing that attorney privilege is now a thing of the past. A precedent has been set. Don’t think future GOP leaning DA’s won’t abuse it as well. Dershowitz has a strong take on this. Must read.

      Privilege doesn’t attach when I am not acting as a lawyer for a client.

      Think.

        Yeah, and if Cohen has had his finger in every pot for the past twenty years. Being a fixer isn’t by any stretch of the imagination being a lawyer.

    Bill,

    This is nothing new. Ken Starr was also all over the map.

    This is, what…15 times now? 20? more?

    Not buying it anymore, sorry…

    Stormy is an American hero. I would love to pin a medal on her chest. 😮
