Breaking news just in (9 AM Los Angeles time) --
Trump lawyer John Dowd has resigned. Yes, this is the same John Dowd who twice has made public claims about the president and then had to fall on his sword and personally take the blame for them.
But still...I thought Trump said only last week that his legal team was great and he was "very happy" with it and then slammed the New York Times and its reporter Maggie Haberman for lying. Yet the thing is...wait, just the other day he hired a new lawyer and now today loses one. So, what gives?? Was Trump not telling the truth when he tweeted that? Was he the one who was lying? Is that possible???
As I type this, in the background Rep. Eric Swallwell (D-CA) on the House Judiciary Committee is saying, "President Trump could have Clarence Darrow as his lawyer, and it doesn't change what a flawed and exposed client he is."
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
