Surprised he has to time to respond at all, what with his posting of semi-nude photos of his daughter and all…

“I declined the invitation to participate as the request was poorly phrased, overly broad and not capable of being answered,”

This poor man’s excuse for a lawyer criticizing anyone else’s work is Example A of Dunning-Kruger.

Graduated from Cooley Law. New term had to be created for Cooley, because they don’t even reach up to “third tier.”

“According to Cooley’s ABA required disclosures, only 27.4% of graduates from the class of 2015 obtained full-time, long term, bar passage required employment 9 months after graduation.[6] 23.8% of graduates were unemployed 9 months after graduation.[7] Only 51.86% of graduates managed to pass a state bar exam in 2015, a requirement to practice law.[8]”

Indeed. They brought in the mob lawyer to prove they have nothing to hide.
If only they could bring in Bruce Cutler too.

Old Bruce (left) often cut a Mussolini-esque figure.

Counselor Bruce striking The Pose with another client (Phil Specter) who will end up dying in jail.

If nothing else Cooley has a 100% higher bar passage and employment rate
than Trump University School of Law. So there’s that.

Let’s start this off by acting guilty. Great lawyering. Brilliant. The Trump team is dumber than a box of rocks.

It will be more fun to watch the forensic accountants go to work on the Trumpire, anyway. And FCI Milan is real close to Mikey’s alma mater :wink:

He was also one of the people dropping off the Ukrainian “peace plan” on Flynn’s desk, personally.

He is all over the place regarding his appearances in the Steele Dossier. Most particularly, regarding being in the Czech Republic to meet with Russian agents. First he said he was, then he said he wasn’t the very next day. Going to be interesting to see what his flight records show. :wink:

Personally, I think the chances are extremely good that they have this guy nailed to the wall. He isn’t nearly as careful as he thinks he is, relying more upon bullying his way through everything as opposed to caution, and he is one of the very few people that Trump would truly trust to convey the high level, high risk, messages to the Russians. He certainly wouldn’t trust someone like Page over Cohen.
