Stormy Daniels nee Stephanie Clifford sued Michael Cohen and her former lawyer Keith Davidson in California Superior Court today, alleging that Davidson violated attorney-client privilege and withheld relevant communications from her and from her current lawyer, Michael Avenatti. The...
No doubt, we all knew it was coming. I admit, I am shocked that it occurred this soon and that it happened while the instigator visited what is still a crime scene, loaded with the spirit of simple citizens...
Okay, nothing quirky, ironic, to this post. This is terrifying, the biggest step yet on Trump's march to authoritarian dictatorship. He DOES think that he has the power to order private business around with respect to China, and he's...
Far and away, the most important story released in the last few days has gone near under the radar. Charlottesville was tied to Russia. We know this only because the GOP Congressman representing the Charlottesville area, Rep. Tom Garrett (R-VA)...
Weekends. Especially in summer. Fewer staff around to insist upon attending to something that matters, great big houses all over the place, from D.C., to NYC, NJ and Mara Lago, just to putter around in, and think. It would seem...

So, a leaked memo fell into the hands of the New York Times one which lays out President Trump’s defense in utter defiance to the Mueller investigation, claiming the president can’t be charged for his possible crimes because he’s...
This is rather serious. Of course, we have sort of known this. It feels different when confirmed by people that we suspect are not messing around in going to the media. A former Mossad chief, Tamir Pardo, assures us it is worse than we...
We now have a guilty plea to a federal crime that directly implicates Donald Trump in a campaign expenditure felony. Whether Dershowitz is correct that campaign expenditure crimes are akin to jay-walking, there are differing levels of culpability within...
