I... wow

I've spoken to the media on behalf of several clients over the years. As a general rule, I avoid confessing on their behalf
Maybe this makes sense if they'd already negotiated a deal?

Given the muppetry we've witnessed the past few months, I can't rule it out. But it would be horribly unethical unless the client consented to it ahead of time
Yeah but then it's easy to say "no comment at this time, we look forward to our day in court"
The only people who matter on mitigation are the prosecutor and the judge though. I don't see how "I'm not a magician" while reciting that the Government has already proven the elements of the crime helps that
No clue, haven't pondered it much

But if you can't say anything helpful to the press, saying "no comment" is easy
I'm not gonna criticize; I don't know who this guy is, maybe he's excellent in a courtroom

I'm being held at an FBI black site as we speak
It was one of the QAnon loons claiming Donald Trump had just signed an order putting the military in control of the Government

Typically gibberish

Now *this* is a violation of the First Amendment

When Government officials – like @marcorubio – use things like Twitter for Government business, they can't then block people like @Stonekettle

Literally yes

This is the "but I don't own a printing press!" variant of whining. It's painfully stupid and has been since the Republic was founded
People have stood on street corners passing out leaflets since before the American Revolution

You're not entitled by law to a larger platform. You're entitled to not have the Government prosecute you for what you say

🔥 "Twitter permanently bans Donald Trump from its platform, citing ‘risk of further incitement of violence’"
Private entities are only public fora from the standpoint of politicians' use of them

They remain private property that can be closed to the speaker at any time – and Trump's account in particular should have been suspended years ago

**POLL TIME**: Those of you who were online last night probably recall that Seth Abramson – grifter / muppet / English professor – accused me of libel

Naturally my 1A attorney friends want to get involved 😂

Should I have them send Seth a letter explaining defamation law? 🤔
If my lawyer allows it

There is some precedent for that:

But "past performance is no guarantee of future success" etc etc
