Comrade Stupid Sends Letters, Hilarity Ensues

As we all know, excerpts of Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House leaked on Wednesday and the wildfire started.

One of Comrade Stupid’s lawyers sent a cease-and-desist letter to Bannon yesterday, telling him to shut his pie hole. Comrade Stupid has done this shit forever life. But these letters only purpose is to scare people who can’t afford a lawyer.

Steve Bannon don’t care. He can afford lawyers.

Public figures can only win defamation lawsuits when they can prove that the defendant lied, the defendant knew they were lying, and the defendant lied anyway.

What about the famous NDA, you say? Well, Bannon was an employee of the US Gubmint, not an employee of Comrade Stupid. With very few exceptions, NDAs do not apply to government employees.

Comrade Stupid also sent a letter to Wolff’s publisher, Henry Holt and Co., demanding it to not release the book. The publisher promptly moved up the release date to this morning. The book is #1 on Amazon’s list of bestsellers. Give Comrade Stupid credit: he knows how to push a product to dominate its market.

Wolff recorded all/many of his 200 interviews. If the recordings accurately match the book’s quotes then Comrade Stupid has no case against Henry Holt and Co., who are probably enjoying the stroll to the bank with their buckets of moolah.

Should Comrade Stupid actually file suit, Bannon’s lawyers will force him to answers questions under oath. Please let this happen. Everyone who lived through Clinton’s preznincy knows what happens if you lie under oath.

    Donald’s not going after some poor drywall contractor from Tenafly, NJ. He won’t be able to run out the clock with legal fees.

    Yeah, but you’re forgetting one thing.

    As a long-time Fed I can tell you the only time NDAs might apply is when you’re dealing with 3rd party/OEM proprietary hardware/software/intellectual stuff. Certainly not any of the work you do in the normal course of your job. Hell, people even our salaries are public information; if you know a Fed, what Agency they work for (and sometimes even not) and in what state they live, you can always find out their salary (though usually last year’s.) To think the president* can enforce a NDA on a Federal employee is..well, Trumpian.

      This is true. When I was doing some sub-contracting work, my salary was available as a line item on a public document, even though it was a classified program.

    So, it’s a contest to see who can pick the smartest lawyers? I’m going with Steve on this one.
