McGahn likening himself to Robert Bork trying to stop all of Nixon's dirty deeds coming out to save his presidency is *a look.*
McGahn refused to lean on Rosenstein to fire Mueller. Not because it was objectively inappropriate and quite possibly obstructive — but because he didn't want Rosenstein to quit and trigger bad publicity that would endanger Trump.
McGahn: "Being sort of, young conservative type, Judge Bork was a role model to me as well."

Howard Kleinhendler arguing that it's UNLEGAL for MLB to move the All Star Game out of ATL, complains that girls' softball teams dropped out of their championship game the same weekend.

Judge: How is that an imminent harm requiring injunction?

HK: ....
Judge: Please, just make some kind of legally cognizable argument as to how your organization is harmed here?

HK/JCN: We had to take out ads to fight MLB.

Judge: But, isn't your whole schtick basically taking out ads?

Judge: Your injury already happened. It's done.

HK/JCN: Our clients could lose MORE business?

Judge: And there could be a hurricane.

WTF is this article about Kimberly Klacik, @washingtonpost ? Baltimore is only 20 miles up the road from DC — could you guys not do your homework on this person?

But just to be safe, best let the gerrymandered legislature give us all the electoral votes!…
They're like SO MAD YOU GUYS that these local officials submitted grant proposals for their own cities and not the whole state. Unlegal!
Would you faint from shock if I told you that the statute which supposedly says ballot drop boxes are "so seriously in violation of the Wisconsin Election Code" doesn't actually mention drop boxes?

Maybe you should sit down.

Oh, hey, remember when Victoria Toensing and Joe diGenova claimed that Parnas was their "translator" for work with Dmitry Firtash, so communications with him were privileged?

I'd like to solve the puzzle, Pat. Also, the puzzle as to why Rudy needs a pardon.
Remember when Victoria Toensing referred to Parnas as her assistant, like he was moonlighting as a paralegal?…
Is Lev Parnas an attorney? No, he's not.
