According to the John Dowd was so concerned Trump would commit perjury, that he held a practice interview with the president that went so badly, the President’s former personal attorney told him don’t testify, or you’ll end up in an orange jumpsuit. I’ll point out Dowd left the legal team.. but how poorly did he lie in a confidential practice interview.. with his own lawyer.. for him to say the president will go to jail if he talks to Bob Mueller. That doesn’t help with the court of public opinion and it’s actually worse than that in the court of law. The President is a criminal. His lawyer thinks that. What’s the counter argument?
“That’s a no-go. That is not going to happen,” Rudy Giuliani said. “There will be no questions at all on obstruction.”
Despite the fact Woodward’s new book is “Fake News”.. President Trump has ordered an actual witch-hunt in the West Wing to find out who cooperated with Bob Woodward’s book.. which is odd, because the White House says the accounts in the book are that of disgruntled former employees. If that is the case, why would you go on a witch-hunt of current staffers?
The Senate hearings for Brett Kavanaugh’s lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court are starting up this week. Everyone’s been talking about how much Kavanaugh prepared for this moment. And that’s clear from his actions and his responses.
Trump said Wednesday that “we’ll see” with regards to a government shutdown at the end of the month. I think that ultimately it’s political posturing, but who knows. If Trump feels like he needs the distraction from the Phony Collusionist Witch Hunt at the end of the month, he may opt to shut things down. In Crazytown, hating immigrants always plays.
