Enter The Writ Twits

May 30, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Okay, this is oh so very cool.  Donald Trump’s own personal attorney, Michael Cohen, is now under Congressional investigation.

Cohen says he declined their invitation to come talk to them, sooooo …

After Cohen rejected the congressional requests for cooperation, the Senate Select Intelligence Committee voted unanimously on Thursday to grant its chairman, Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina, and ranking Democrat, Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, blanket authority to issue subpoenas as they deem necessary.

Oooooh, that was a unanimous vote.  That means Republicans also voted for it.

This couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.  Cohen is a jerk who loved to wave his law degree in the faces of reporters to intimidate them.

He was quoted in 2015 telling Daily Beast reporters, “I will take you for every penny you still don’t have. And I will come after your Daily Beast and everybody else that you possibly know … So I’m warning you, tread very f—ing lightly, because what I’m going to do to you is going to be f—ing disgusting.”

Honey, Honey, Cohen Honey, everything you do is pretty disgusting.

Cohen was mentioned in the unverified dossier prepared by a British intelligence agent during the 2016 election.  That was disgusting, and he wasn’t even in the peeing part.

  1. Sounds like a privileged brat who needs a smackdown. I know a few others like that.

  2. Too many DFW area attorneys operate the exact same way. So similar in fact that you would think they had memorized the same script, like used car salesmen. (I recollect an attorney of 1977 vintage saying similar to me when I stopped him after running a stop sign at bar closing time. “You may beat the rap but you won’t beat the ride. Dude.”)

    Attorneys occupy a privileged position in our society. Some of that privilege is deserved. As a group attorneys are above average smart and clever, and perform vital services. Some are even head and shoulders above the average attorney. And the 1% minority who put self before service and client and seek to enrich themselves at every opportunity besmirch the vast majority. The poster child for the 1% is Texas’s “embattled” elected Attorney General.

    I’m guessing when Michael Cohen receives his subpoena he’ll rant and rail etc. But it will occur to him that inevitably he will either comply with the subpoena or several Deputy US Marshals will assist his compliance. The easiest route through all this is walking into the Senate conference room under his own power. Now, having said all that, shackled and escorted by a burly deputy US marshal does put an SEG all the way across my face.

  3. That Other Jean says:

    Is there anybody acquainted with Trump who isn’t a sleazeball?

  4. Bud Malone says:

    In my younger years, during a contentious disagreement, a smart-ass attorney aggressively asked me “Malone, are you an attorney”? I responded, “No, I’ve always had honest moral jobs”.

  5. It must be nice to be so morally superior, Bud. Does the time difference make advising the Pope inconveniently, or do you have an office in the Vatican? And pray tell what is your morally superior honest job?

  6. Susan on the Left Coast says:

    In recent news, Cohen was pointed out as one of the many Trump’ers who had been in Budapest hooking up with Putin agents on behalf of Trump campaign…side note: Budapest is an infamous ground zero for fake passports that Russian agents use to enter the US. Also…Arthur J. Finkelstein, the right wing’s Merchant of Venom, has offices there a few steps from Russian Embassy. His proteges include the likes of Roger Stone & Trump’s life long mentor, toxic Roy Cohn.

    Trump’s lawyer, Cohen, denied the news reports that he had been in Budapest playing footsie with Russians. His defense: “I’ll show you my passport to prove I was not there”

    Michael Cohen also has an alias “Michael Hacking” which was revealed in a Florida law suit filed by a Russian business man who was screwed out of a real estate purchase when Cohen did not pay the seller the money the Russian buyer paid at Cohen’s law firm. The Russian had to sue to get his money returned to him. The seller never received the proceeds of the sale from Cohen’s office…at the time the suit was filed.

    Michael Cohen can show his passport didn’t arrive in Budapest. Michael Hacking has not offered to do so.

    slipstream hisownself was once a foreman for a grand jury. This meant reporting the jury’s actions to a judge every day after the jury was done. One day during this delightful duty I was sitting in a courtroom waiting for a judge to render a decision on a civil trial. Present: four attorneys and yours truly. Chatting while waiting for the judge to return, I mentioned that I was next on the docket. One of the attorneys, not recognizing me, asked “are you an attorney?”

    Without even thinking about it, I replied “no, I am a decent human being.”

    Mouth, meet foot.

  8. This is Mr. Says Who. I sometimes still watch that clip because it’s so funny. Kudos to Brianna Keilar for the verbal slap-down.

    Attorneys are like every other group – some good, some bad. For every sleezeball like Cohen, there was an attorney volunteering their time to helping people out of DJT’s travel ban mess, stuck in the airports. In fact, judges are the ones slapping down same travel ban, With most of the legislative body asleep at the wheel, the judiciary branch has been the only thing keeping the executive branch in somewhat control.

  9. One of my best friends retired after sitting on a District Court bench for 25ish years. Great guy. Funny, etc etc. BUT he can tell attorney jokes for hours on end, some of them based on his bench experience, AND many of them will peel the paint off the wall.

    “What is the difference between a cactus and a BMW full of lawyers?
    The pricks are on the outside of the cactus.”

    etc etc 🙂

  10. OldMayfky says:

    Oh, boo! I’m sure that those threats scared those liberal folk! Right!

  11. Forgive me, but there seem to be ever so many attorneys surfacing these days for whatever reason. Is this the guy Trump used for his divorces?

  12. “Writ Twits?” Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. In defense of some lawyers, I am a card carrying member of the ACLU and do lots of volunteer work for them. That said, I enjoy lawyer jokes. The cactus one is a rare one I had not heard before. I will be sure to tell it to my fellow lawyers

  14. Tilphousia says:

    Traitor trump only knows sleazy lawyers. No decent lawyer would represent him. But when Cohen finally testifies, settle in with peach ice tea (unsweetened) and popcorn.

    BTW, Michael Flyn will provide info to the Senate regarding his business. New subpoenas. Can’t take the fifth regarding businesses.

  15. Linda Phipps says:

    There’s something about that twerp’s face that sets my teeth on edge. I think he was saying “Says who” from birth.

  16. Henry. Your comeback evoked a laud laugh. I spent 40 months in the Marine Corps in WW2 – a moral effort. My working career was dedicated to improving the lives of working men and women – a moral effort. Your mention of the Pope and Vatican was a big mistake. I’m a religious non believer. A snarky sophomoric comment doesn’t cut it.Try harder.
