Somebody on Twitter the other day made a comment about how disgusting it was for President Trump to have a lawyer as his “fixer.” I replied that you hire a lawyer to be your fixer because you want him to fix things legally. What I think is disgusting is that Trump had such a lousy lawyer. Cohen is a snake and a rat.
What really disturbs me is the way that Mueller was able to so easily evade attorney-client privilege. The general rule is that all communications between an individual and his or her lawyer are privileged and cannot be used as evidence against the individual. There is a “crime/fraud” exception that says the privilege does not apply if you are conspiring with your lawyer to commit crimes.
Mueller busted Cohen for crimes unrelated to Trump, then used that as leverage to get Cohen to say he plotted crimes with Trump. Abracadabra! Everything is fair game.
Every day that goes by I hate the Democrats more and more. I hate them more than I hate my ex-wife’s attorney, and I hope to live long enough to piss on his grave someday.
