    Now Nunberg Says He May Just Give them His Password
    I guess his attorney passed him an 'idiot, your emails are on the server' note.

    I honestly thought he was going to say it on-air. Absolutely surreal...

    And there goes Gary Cohn.

    I don't blame people for fleeing this white house, but I'm pretty worried about what's going to happen there. They were already understaffed to begin with, nobody wants these jobs, and most of the staff they still have is a joke. It's a pretty bad situation, especially considering the probability of a complete Trump meltdown at some point.

    It's pretty hard to quantify just how intensely a huge portion of the population hates Donald Trump. This is one way though.

    It's cool that this guy probably earns more money than all of the regulars in this thread combined

    I have zero kind words for Chris Cillizza. If you want to see a good text-based ass whooping, he got owned by Soledad O'Brien (and basically everyone else) on twitter last night.

    So will it be Stormy Daniels or Robert Mueller? What do you guys think?

    I don't think very many people care about the Stormy Daniels thing because everyone already knows that Trump is a dirtbag and either cares or doesn't. Maybe if some gross pictures get out into the public that would change, but I don't even want to think about that.

    Actually, I was referring to the fact the Stormy Daniels issue may raise some legal issues.

    I don't know anything about campaign finance laws, but John Edwards got away with something similar back in the GWB days. I have no idea what would actually happen if this turned out to be a violation, so I guess I'll take Mueller. There is a third possibility though. Maybe he'll surprise us and get thrown out for a completely different crime.

    A federal judge in Manhattan just asked President Trump to "unblock" people on Twitter, and instead "mute" them as part of a Settlement.
    If a settlement is not agreed upon, the judge will make an official ruling very soon, which she claims "they may not like".

    Oh god I hope that's only a rumor.

    Do you think this is Heller just trying to stir the pot? Didn't Kennedy hire law clerks for the October term?

    I hope it's just garbage. He did hire clerks. But, TBH, even if they try to stay - they're all so old......I worry they'll get sick or die :(
