"for aggressive defense of executive privilege as House investigations and Mueller investigation loom large.."

They want to keep the Mueller report under wraps and block Dems.

Good luck!

Gonna be interesting to see the arguments for executive privilege applying to activities that took place years prior to the election.

He must subscribe to that old Stalin adage: Quantity is a quality.

Thanks. I conflated it with a saying we had in the college lunchroom.

Who's footing the bill for all these lawyers?

I'm guessing it's either Trumpo or the Republican Party and not the taxpayers.

Oh no, it's the taxpayers paying the bill. These were hired by White House counsel, who is a WH staff member and on the government payroll.

Given that his earlier counsel including Rudy G are total screwballs, they've got some catching up to do.

You can't post MP4 video links. The Phorum software will only display .gif animations. Most of the time you can just change the extension, but be aware that it might be a 50 MB file.

Problem is, all bets are off when he declares a state of emergency unless there are enough cabinet members with a spine who stand to lose it big to pull a 25th amendment or enough Republican senators willing to defect to successfully impeach... and since Pence seems all for the wall emergency too, I suppose they'd have to be willing to put Pelosi on the presidential pedestal.

Exactly. Whatever happens...Trump and maybe Pence too (oh please, please, please) need to be fingerprinted and sized for orange jumpsuits.
