Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, March 20, 2018

President Trump has stepped up his attacks on special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigation in recent days, and his lawyer even suggested that the inquiry should be shut down. And just in case the direction in which this whole thing is headed wasn't clear, Trump has now hired a lawyer who argues the president is being framed. Trump's legal team on Monday announced the hiring of Joseph E. diGenova, a former U.S. attorney who served as an independent counsel and a special counsel in the 1990s and was later hired by the New York Senate to investigate Gov. Eliot Spitzer (D). The hiring was first reported by the New York Times.

Trump's choice of a lawyer here mirrors his state of mind. Yes, on top of all the other bad things he is mentally ill.

A google search of Joe diGenova brings a long list of attack articles by Clinton lapdogs going back years,

and further evidenced by the DR's #1 Clinton lapdog, swiftly feeding this assassination piece into the echo chamber.

I know you're old school propaganda, but the new ad robots might put even you out of werk.

It's funny how Sheep will vehemently argue against Russian interference in politics then go for this Clinton conspiracy stuff.

Real evidence for a concerted effort to manipulate isn't enough, but pizza gate is conclusive.

This is a problem.

Why Trump added a streetfighter to his legal team
www.axios.com

...A new addition to President Trump's legal team -- Joe diGenova, a former U.S. attorney who is well-known in Washington and has argued for the president on Fox News -- reflects three White House realities.

The state of play:

(1) The White House is digging in for a fight that looks to be longer and messier than officials had expected.

(2) This is another example of the president responding to televised cues. Trump has spent most of his adult life in litigation, and obsesses about legal positioning in the same way that he is consumed by his press coverage.

(3) It's another pugilistic voice at the table, and suggests that this weekend's attacks on Mueller won't be the last.....

I wonder if Mr diGenova will be the one who can convince Pres Trump that many of Pres Trump's tweets do more self-harm than self-benefit?

Tin foil hats set to maximum, sir!

Yes, lets ignore the lawyer's crazy conspiracy theories and pretend its all "Clinton's lapdogs" causing his insanity.

There is a reason several of us have plonked Sheeple... Being unaware of his stupidity, hypocrisy and insipid reasoning is easier than spending the time or energy responding to it.

It is no accident the Trump is ramping up his attacks now that Mueller is asking for financial records. If Trump genuinely has an Achilles heel, it is in his business dealings and tax records. It's fairly obvious that release of that information is what he fears most.

I actually have him plonked, too, but people copy/paste his remarks and it's kinda like trying not to look at a roadside car wreck.

Meanwhile, back at the Trump Lawyering Up Ranch...

"Trump legal team seeks to add star GOP attorney Theodore B. Olson"

Check out the pic of his law team... it looks like a theatrical goon squad.

True.. and since Trump is going to have to answer Mueller's questions one way or another, in person or in writing, in front of witnesses or not.

Yes, diGenova and his wife Victoria Toensing have specialized in going after both Clintons, but the truth is they are hardcore GOP operatives and will go after any Democrat who they feel needs tarnishing. Just ask Toensing's son Brady Toensing, who is a partner in their law firm (diGenova & Toensing, LLP) and who is responsible for triggering the FBI investigation into Jane Sanders:

Brady Toensing, the chair of Donald Trump's campaign in Vermont, is the man who wrote the letter that sparked the federal bank fraud investigation into Jane Sanders, the wife of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

Rest assured Bernie will become more and more of a target for them as we get closer to 2020 if Bernie decides to run.

#27 | Posted by Gal_Tuesday, Dream on, Bernie has about a 50% chance of being alive in 2020, that is just demographics. Hillery is falling apart before our eyes, and will more than likely have to be spoon feed her oatmeal by an attendant by then. Any bright shining messiahs out there to lead the Democrat tribes out of the wilderness? None to be seen on the horizon.
