One of a kind.
The closest I can recall would be Nixon, but most of that only came out after he'd resigned.
Of you take out the modern trappings Jackson was pretty nutty.
Andrew or Michael?
It's been sort of bizarre following both the news and Trump supporters. It seems the list of long terms Republicans becoming RINOs grows daily.
NPR asks an obvious question, "Why do Russian Journalists Keep Falling"
That's a heck of a lot of Russians falling off of balconies and high-up windows. They need to start booking them into ground-floor rooms for their own protection.
Trumps main lawyer in the Mueller investigation, Ty Cobb, has quit.
Totally made up by me rumor is Cobb ran into Bolton in the halls and they got into an old fashioned “stache off” with the loser having to get out of town.
Trump doesn't just lose a lawyer, Cobb is going to be a witness for the prosecution.
Yet another member of Donald Trump’s legal defense team in the Trump-Russia scandal has resigned, and this time the stakes are far higher – and more dire. Ty Cobb is known for looking like a cross between Wilford Brimley and a barkeeper from the Old West, but he was probably the least incompetent lawyer on Trump’s team. He resigned this morning, amid reports that Trump has hired impeachment lawyer Emmet Flood. But Cobb’s departure may not be what it seems, because Cobb is about to become Robert Mueller’s star witness.
Donald Trump tried to save a buck by putting Ty Cobb on the White House payroll. But that means Cobb was never technically representing him, which in turn means there was never any attorney-client privilege between them. Cobb surely warned Trump that he would have to rat Trump out if he confessed to anything illegal. But with the way in which Trump tends to recklessly run his mouth, Cobb surely knows many of Trump’s dirty secrets by now. ...
And Don messes up with his new lawyer.
At the same time Ty Cobb announced he was quitting Donald Trump’s legal team in the Russia scandal
today, Trump announced the hire of new attorney Emmet Flood. This might have been a good move, considering that Flood is capable and widely respected, if not for the fact that Trump has already found a way to blow it. ...
As it turns out, no. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced today that Emmet Flood will also be on the White House payroll. This means that Flood will not really be Trump’s attorney, and that Trump and Flood will have no attorney-client privilege. In other words, Trump is setting himself up for the same nightmare that he already has with Cobb. ...
Say, Ty Cobb, wasn't he supposed to be a famously racist pro-baseballer with a penchant for spitting tobacco juice at people?
That was a great film.
Oh what a tangled web we weave...
Donald Trump repaid his lawyer for Stormy Daniels hush money, says Giuliani
In Fox News interview, Giuliani says lawyer Michael Cohen was personally reimbursed for $130,000 used to silence porn actor.
Donald Trump personally repaid his lawyer Michael Cohen the $130,000 hush money given to the adult-film star Stormy Daniels days before the 2016 presidential election to buy her silence over an alleged affair, Rudy Giuliani said on Wednesday night.
That Ty Cobb was nicknamed The Georgia Peach.
This reported story from page 7 of the thread seems very close to the plot of last year's film Last Flag Flying. The Dad doesn't want the military involved in his son's ceremonies after repatriation, so the IMC gets uncool and heavy on the Dad. Pitifully miscast film. Shame, it could've really turned a screw on the current administration... well, to the extent that a mundane hollywood prop has an impact on anything but the maintenance of the status quo.... so... I'm wrong. Phew, I'm debated out. Tough crowd (inside my noggin).
Anyway, I thought the parallels were interesting. Anyone seen Last Flag Flying?
Maybe Trump should pay hush money to Giuliani.
Giuliani said Trump, as president, doesn’t need to comply with a subpoena to appear before a grand jury in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
“We don’t have to,” Giuliani said when asked if Trump would comply. “He’s the president of the United States. We can assert the same privileges other presidents have.”
Mueller reportedly warned Trump’s lawyers in March that he had the power to issue a subpoena if the White House refused his request to have a sit-down interview with the president as part of the federal investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, rejected that argument on CNN later Sunday.
“He’s going to need to comply with a subpoena,” he told the network’s Jake Tapper. “If they take that case to court, they’re going to lose.” ...
Stormy's lawyer is following the money of the llc that paid her.
A company tied to a Russian oligarch sent $500,000 last year to an entity that President Donald Trump’s lawyer used to pay hush money to porn actress Stephanie Clifford, her attorney Michael Avenatti claimed.
Let's all pile in and ask for hush money! Yay!
Trump's lawyers continue to have Trump related problems.
WASHINGTON — President Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani, abruptly resigned from his law firm, which then promptly undercut his recent statements defending the president.
Mr. Giuliani had taken a leave of absence last month from the firm, Greenberg Traurig, to represent Mr. Trump. But the firm, one of the nation’s largest, said in a statement on Thursday that he no longer worked there.
Firm partners had chafed over Mr. Giuliani’s public comments about payments that another of Mr. Trump’s lawyers, Michael D. Cohen, made to secure the silence of a pornographic film actress who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump. The president has denied her allegations.
Mr. Giuliani suggested that such payments were common at his firm, even without the knowledge of the clients. “That was money that was paid by his lawyer, the way I would do, out of his law firm funds,” he said on Fox News. He added, “Michael would take care of things like this like I take care of this with my clients.”
Michael Avenatti has a warning for Michael Cohen, the embattled personal attorney to President Donald Trump: There’s more.
“We haven’t even scratched the surface with this email today and the information that we released earlier in the week,” Avenatti said on CNN on Thursday. “We’ve got emails, we’ve got text messages, we’ve got other financial information, and people better be very careful in the representations that they make.”
Avenatti earlier this week released a trove of documents linking Cohen’s consulting firm to numerous payments, including $500,000 from a company tied to a Russian oligarch.
Cohen used that same consulting firm to pay $130,000 to Avenatti’s client Stormy Daniels as part of a nondisclosure agreement just before the 2016 presidential election.

I hope Giuliani is sent out to explain this!
Trump Orders Help For Chinese Phone-Maker After China Approves Money For Trump Project
Trump will profit from Indonesian resort project that will get $500 million in Chinese loans in a deal sealed days before before his tweet ordering help for ZTE.

That’s the same ZTE the US banned companies from dealing with and that the US military banned the sale of their phones btw.
mysteriously missing records on what appear to be millions more paid to Cohen.
The report also refers to two previous suspicious-activity reports, or sars, that the bank had filed, which documented even larger flows of questionable money into Cohen’s account. Those two reports detail more than three million dollars in additional transactions—triple the amount in the report released last week. Which individuals or corporations were involved remains a mystery. But, according to the official who leaked the report, these sars were absent from the database maintained by the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, or fincen. The official, who has spent a career in law enforcement, told me, “I have never seen something pulled off the system. . . . That system is a safeguard for the bank. It’s a stockpile of information. When something’s not there that should be, I immediately became concerned.” The official added, “That’s why I came forward.”
The url pretty much explains the article
The Senate Judiciary Committee said Wednesday that the Russian government apparently used the National Rifle Association to help Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016.
And that Committee has a Republican Majority.
Cohen's business partner has flipped.
Ukraine was apparently trying to outbid Russia with Cohen payments.
