Re: DOJ Investigation 2020: Comey, McCabe; Old Leaks of Classified Info

Yeah, it's terrible if Comey is being investigated for payback. But it's also ironic since Comey's misbehavior is one of the reasons we have this RICO Adminstration.

Re: Lev and Igor

Two days of a hyped interview with Lev Parnas, and little new. Mostly confirmation. The only thing new seems to be Parnas' claim that Trump tried to fire Marie Yovanovitch several times and had to smear her to get rid of her. Interesting but not terribly relevant. (We did learn some things about Par...

Re: Michael Avenatti

Avenatti convinced other lawyers that with his good looks and trial demeanor he could best represent their clients in class action litigation before juries. So he conned other lawyers (whom he then apparently screwed). It's going to be hard to find a viable class action in jail (right now) or prison...

I didn't see or hear anything we didn't already know, having been proven by other witnesses. It was just more confirmation.

Revealing the documents would demonstrate what a scumbag my client is, and that the reputation she currently has -- such as it is -- is fraudulent. Therefore, please don't release the documents.

"Negotiation" to Trump consists of making threats and punishing those who don't play ball with him. It's worked in the past for those of his businesses he didn't run into the ground and bankrupt. Why not with other countries?

Re: Lev and Igor

Parnas' testimony implicating Barr, Pence and Trump personally was not supported by any documents and was somewhat weak and bereft of detail. Rudy Giuliani was his primary contact, so Giuliani would be the most important witness. Of course, Giuliani would have to be sober and telling the truth, so i...

Re: Michael Avenatti

I agree. Avenatti was going to be in New York later this week. The California State Bar could have completed its hearing and suspended him. There was no reason to re-arrest him unless the person who did wanted some payback and some publicity. That sounds like the Trump Administration. And by doing t...

Re: Michael Avenatti

Government counsel says it understands and will confer with the defense. But government says if Avenatti spends money owed to someone else that could be a crime and government doesn't want to prospectively immunize Avenatti for that.

(So the government did get it and just wasted time.)

Judge then says he was aware of that, but repeats defense position that money Avenatti may be paying defense counsel may be tainted.

Re: Michael Avenatti

Government clarifies (although none was needed) that it is not holding any money of Avenatti's.

Defense counsel never said government was.

Then refines position to say SDNY USA did not seize any Avenatti assets.
