Check this out:
CNN is apparently in possession of a tape made by Trump’s attorney without Trump’s knowledge or consent. It was either given to CNN by Trump’s attorney or someone in Robert Mueller’s special prosecutor office.
If it was provided by Trump’s attorney that is a huge ethical violation and he will be disbarred even if nothing else happens to him. But if the tape given to CNN came from Mueller’s office then that is a serious crime.
CNN knows who gave it to them, but they won’t tell us.
The fact that CNN is in possession of the tape at all is disturbing and reeks of unfairness. It also supports Trump’s claims of a conspiracy against him. That CNN would play the tape on the air shocks the conscience. The tape contains nothing relating to Russian collusion. Zero, zip, nada planada.
CNN knows who leaked the tape. They are protecting the identity of this person. In doing so they are asserting a privilege. They are violating Trump’s attorney-client privilege while asserting one of their own. CNN claims to be fair and impartial. They deny any partisan bias.
CNN employees frequently complain that Trump calls CNN “fake news” and they claim Trump is endangering their lives with his comments about them. But they have no bias.
We live in interesting times. It is apparently now a crime to pay off a blackmailer. If your attorney gets arrested for something unrelated to your case he can roll over on you and you can’t stop him. If this bullshit stands then attorney-client privilege becomes meaningless.
Last but not least:
Even if everything on that tape is true and is admissible evidence, who gives a fuck?
Do YOU give a fuck???
