Donald Trumps bumbling attorney accidentally gives away secrets when hes overheard at restaurant

The attorneys representing Donald Trump in his Russia scandal have seemingly been in a race to see who could screw up in the most embarrassing fashion. Two of them have had late night email feuds with strangers. One accused a reporter of being on drugs. One of them was fired after he threatened someone. Now one of his attorneys has found an entirely new way to screw up: he unwittingly gave away secrets about the internal workings of Trump’s legal team when he was overheard in a restaurant.The incredible story comes by way of the New York Times, which reveals that one of its reporters overheard Trump attorney Ty Cobb (yes that’s his real name) while they were both dining at the same steakhouse (link). Cobb was overheard accusing his colleague, White House Counsel Don McGahn, of having his own spies within the administration.The Times contacted the White House to follow up on what it had overheard Cobb saying, and in the process McGahn became aware of what Cobb had said about him. This prompted McGahn to privately “erupt” at Cobb. It also led Chief of Staff John Kelly to “reprimand” Cobb for having discussed such things in public at a restaurant where he could be overheard. This is just some of the dysfunction that’s going on within Trump’s no-star legal team.Donald Trump hired Ty Cobb as a White House lawyer so taxpayers would have to pick up the tab, even though Cobb is directly representing Trump in the Russia scandal. But this may backfire, as it means Cobb and Trump don’t have the usual attorney-client privilege. Nor is there any such privilege between Trump and McGahn. For that matter, Special Counsel Robert Mueller is targeting McGahn as a potential witness or co-conspirator, as he helped Trump craft his attempted cover-up of Donald Trump Jr’s Russia meeting.The post Donald Trump’s bumbling attorney accidentally gives away secrets when he’s overheard at restaurant appeared first on Palmer Report.

Donald Trumps White House advisers accuse each other of wearing a wire for Robert Mueller


Anyone paying close attention to Donald Trump’s Russia scandal has figured out Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s strategy. He’s pursuing everyone in Trump’s orbit for their own alleged crimes, or for having participated in a conspiracy with Trump to commit crimes. He’s trying to get as many of them to flip on him as possible. Some will indeed flip, if they haven’t already. Now it turns out Trump’s own advisers believe it’s already happened – and they suspect someone’s wearing a wire.The incredible revelation is buried all the way down in the eighteenth paragraph of a new piece from the New York Times that’s largely otherwise focused on the general dysfunction within Trump’s legal team (link). Here’s the buried bombshell: “White House officials privately express fear that colleagues may be wearing a wire to surreptitiously record conversations for Mr. Mueller.” This suggests things may be much further along than had previously been believed.At this point a double digit number of current and former Trump advisers have hired attorneys to represent them in the Russia scandal. Trump’s own personal attorney Michael Cohen, and Trump’s White House Counsel Don McGahn, have each hired attorneys of their own. It was revealed last week that Mueller is pursuing six advisers who worked with Trump to cover up the true nature of his son’s Russia meeting, meaning that he may be pursuing them all for criminal conspiracy. It’s a matter of when, not if, some of the targets begin flipping in the hope of getting the best deals while there are still good deals to be had. This latest revelation threatens to become a self fulfilling prophecy.

Let’s say that no one in Donald Trump’s White House has flipped on him yet. Even if advisers merely thinksomeone has flipped, it’ll motivate them to consider hurrying up and flipping before things get so far along that they no longer have anything worthwhile to offer. This kind of paranoia tends to set off feeding frenzies.

Donald Trumps inept attorneys are now angrily feuding with each other

Donald Trump promised that if he won the election, he’d only hire the best people. Instead he’s seemingly hired the worst people he could find: the most unsuited, the most corrupt, and the most inept. He’s saved the worst hires of all for his own legal team tasked with protecting him in the Russia scandal, which consists of a cast of characters who would be considered too unrealistic to play cartoonish sidekicks on a sitcom. Now they’re angrily turning against each other.The feuding within Trump’s legal team has found its focal point between Don McGahn and Ty Cobb, who were both technically hired as White House employees, but who have both acted as de facto Trump attorneys in the Russia scandal. The trouble between them began when Cobb made a series of allegations about McGahn while sitting in a restaurant. The conversation was randomly overheard by a New York Times reporter (link), and let’s just say things got ugly from there. McGahn got word of what Cobb had accused him of, and it resulted in McGahn taking Cobb’s head off.The two attorneys have been pushing incompatible legal strategies for how Donald Trump should approach Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, and instead of meeting in the middle, they’re trying to destroy each other. Cobb is accusing McGahn of having spies in the White House. McGahn had John Kelly reprimand Cobb for the restaurant incident.Donald Trump has a long and consistent history of hiring people he knows are unqualified and unsuitable for their jobs, based solely on his belief that they’ll be personally loyal to him. That’s resulted in numerous inept advisers resigning in disgrace during his relatively brief time in the White House. Now it turns out Trump has swung and missed on at least one, or possibly both, of the people he’s entrusted to get him off the hook in the Russia scandal. Which one will he fire first?The post Donald Trump’s inept attorneys are now angrily feuding with each other appeared first on Palmer Report.
