A friend of mine is having problems with her landlord who is demanding several thousand dollars from her for an accidental water flood that originated in her second floor apartment. (She left the water running and when it overflowed, it flooded not only her place but also the one below hers’. Both the landlord and the tenant below her are demanding that she reimburse them.) My advice to my friend was very straightforward “You need to lawyer up.” I gave her Bryan Dugan and Bill McKissick’s phone number.
I mention this for all those who seem to think that there is nothing to this whole Trump – Russia thing. I’m still not sure that there is any there there but a simple fact follows.
Fact: Six months into his term as President, Trump has hired a private lawyer to defend him as has his Vice President, his son, his son-in-law, his former campaign manager, his former National Security Advisor, and his former campaign foreign policy advisor. And this doesn’t even begin to address the number of White House staff members who are going to have to lawyer up for the upcoming Moeller investigation (click here.)
Like my friend with the overflowing sink, if all this was a big nothing burger as the Trumpsters claim, why then the need for all these lawyers? I know, I know it’s Obama’s fault but still …..
I’ve played Warren’s original version of this for you previously, but now check out Jr.’s version. (The first verse lyrics are a bit ironic are they not?)
How was I to know she was with the Russians, too?
Send lawyers, guns, and money
Dad, get me out of this!”
