Seeking New TeeVee Lawyer, Inquire Within

Tonight on the Apprentice: Stable Genius Signs Empty Papers

As we all know by now, after 14 Years of The Apprentice, Comrade Stupid sees the world through the lens of TeeVee. Our Mike TeeVee prznint talks about ratings (he has ’em, no one else does), hires Fox News “personalities” to represent him, and in many instances feels how someone presents is more important than what they know. The moldy gorgonzola that is his brain is just wired that way.

So no one should be surprised that Prznint Stupid is thinking about getting rid of his Impeachment Counsel, Pat Cipollone, because Stupid doesn’t think he’s got enough TV experience. Yup, our soon-to-be-impeached prznint has been quizzing his toadies, minions, and catchfarts, er, trusted associates—including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell—to help cast another lawyer in the role, someone with a little more drama! under his belt and who can play to the cheap seats in Possum Hollar.

You just cannot make up stuff like this.

    Cipollone seems competent. Perhaps this is a good thing for justice.

    It is doubly disgusting that he’s asking McConnell about this. Unbelievable, actually.

        The GOP doesn’t even pretend anymore that they are bound by an oath to support, defend and protect the Constitution. There is also a more specific oath that Senators are supposed to take regarding deliberations in impeachment trials:

        The Senate Rules provide the oath to be sworn by each Senator: “I solemnly swear (or affirm) that in all things appertaining to the trial of the impeachment of President Donald John Trump, now pending, I will do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws: So help me God.”

        Both McConnell and Graham have effectively announced in advance that they will ignore this oath.

        They intend to make the trial a mockery of Constitutional law and Senate procedure.

        This is how democracies die.

  4. He should hire Roy Moore as his next mouthpiece, and Kim Davis to assist him.

    Ironically enough, in this Trump is correct; the most important requirement for his impeachment lawyer isn’t competency, it is television presentability.

    The outcome of the Senate trial has already been agreed between the White House and Mitch McConnell; McConnell went on Fox News and said “There will be no difference between the president’s position and our [Senate Republicans] position, as to how to handle this.”

    So Trump doesn’t need competent legal defence, he already knows he is going to be acquitted; what he needs is a lawyer who will look good on Fox News and spin the Evil Democrat Conspiracy story for all it is worth, and that will probably include talking up how the Democrats ‘stole’ the first three years of his first term.

    You’ll keep hearing the line that about stolen years and that he should have ‘a do over’ from Trump and the GOP over the next five years, and each time he or they are challenged on this they’ll tell you, “That’s sarcasm. The left can’t take a joke.” They are not making a joke, not ever an extremely weak one (the only sort Trump can manage); they are moving the Overton Window, making public discussions of a Trump third term without repealing the 22nd Amendment.

    Does Trump running for a third term despite the 22nd Amendment sounds ridiculous to you? Consider: the US Supreme Court is currently divided 5 to 4 in favour of Conservatives. By the end of Trump’s second term the court will be 7 to 2 Conservative, and of those conservative leaning judges, five will have appointed to the bench by Trump himself. The court is already deciding cases in Trump’s favour despite precedent and constitutional law, so a 2023 decision by the SCOTUS that the Trump administration was “unable to discharge its duties effectively because of Democrat obstruction” and that therefore that term shall not be considered when considering term limits is not outside the realm of possibility; it cannot even be considered unlikely now.

    At this point someone is going to smugly say that Trump couldn’t win in 2024, he won’t even win in 2020. To which I can only say good luck with that.

    He’s already picked his 2024 campaign mgr. – Mike Huckabee! And they HAVE been making that claim publicly, though not very vociferously, that when all is said and done, tRump will have lost all four years of his first term, since it looks like they’re going for the (long?) drawn-out impeachment trial.
    I’ve mentioned this before, and no one has yet to refute me: When the House is finished with its investigation, it can just withhold the results, and not send them to the Senate right away for the Trial phase, claiming, “Our investigations have unearthed further examples of law-breaking by tRump and his associates, and since it is incumbent upon us to investigate further, and it would be irresponsible for us not to, we are withholding the results until such time as we can determine that there are no more criminal or extra-constitutional activities that require our looking into.”

      DC – It is absolutely true that the Judiciary Committee does not have to refer it to the full House, and it is true that Nancy Pelosi controls the agenda there.

      I’m sure that there is some sort of mechanism for sending anything to The Senate, just as the Senate can not take up things (unless they are privileged, which must be taken up).

        TG – I got the idea from John Dean, who claims it is eminently doable. Let Moscow Mitch and his cohorts sue for release- that will drag the proceedings out until PAST the next election, and it would serve to show them how WE feel when they obstruct US.
