lol, that makes me recall the earlier report that he tried to blend in with the drapes.

Yeah, I had heard that story before and it was cringeworthy/funny/kind of sad. Also had heard his account of Trump asking for loyalty, Comey saying he can promise honesty, Trump countering with "honest loyalty," and Comey caving in and agreeing. And then saying, "He is a good man" of Flynn when Trump was trying to get him to drop the investigation.

I had heard all that before, but hearing it all at the same time made it all sound so fucking pathetic. In the interview, he said something like "maybe I didn't have the guts to say more" about the one-on-one dinner he had with Trump, and it's like YEAH, BUDDY, YOU THINK?

I absolutely empathize with people who want to avoid conflict and want to pick their words very carefully and not be too forceful about things because lol hello I have a uterus and have been taught to act this way for literally my entire life, often as a self-defense mechanism against angry men, but this ridiculously tall man was the head of the goddamn FBI, and he turned into a shrinking violet in front of Donald Jfucking Trump.

lol

the Conclave of Talls is having a meeting to determine whether his conduct was sufficiently short in spirit to justify confiscating about 4 inches of his height

If I ever end up in court, I want my lawyer to cite a case that actively works against the point they're making and I want my lawyer to respond to the court's demands with, "My client doesn't feel like doing that."

President Trump on Monday put the brakes on a preliminary plan to impose additional economic sanctions on Russia, walking back a Sunday announcement by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley that the Kremlin had swiftly denounced as "international economic raiding."

People already found this tweet from 2015:

Not sure whether Hannity hired Cohen before or after this, though.

So, this is not what I expected but it fits with my general understanding that this presidency is a Salvador Dali painting.  Episode title: When you have to fire the writers of lost because their scripts are too believable.

ummm

Wouldn't that mean there's no actual attorney-client relationship and no basis for a claim of privilege?

Iirc not necessarily; there is some privilege even before someone becomes a client. Specifically, a person seeking a lawyer can have their communications for that purpose remain privileged even if they don't retain the lawyer.

Which makes me picture Hannity as the rube in that relationship, repeatedly asking to retain Cohen when the latter is basically pretending to take clients.

Eta: I'm guessing that isn't it, but it amuses me.

Who even made the rule that we cannot group ducks and fish together for the simple reason that they are both aquatic? If I want to group them that way and it serves my purpose then I can jolly well do it however I want to and it is still a nested hierarchy and you can't tell me that it's not.

Watched some of the Comey interview with Stephanopoulos, and the biggest take away for me was that the former FBI Director is literally just as conflict avoidant as I am, and that is actually pretty terrible.
Yeah, at every opportunity to make a clear stand, he backed down.



Lmao also :smith:
