Default Trump Considers Reshuffling Legal Team as He Takes On Mueller More Aggressively

Kinda looks like tRump is taking the stern in his own tiny hands of the good ship Titanic, AKA as the tRump Administration. Can't wait to see the perp walk outta the White House.


<WASHINGTON — President Trump’s legal team was poised for a shake-up on Monday, according to two people briefed on the matter, as he openly discussed firing one of his lawyers, another considered resigning and a third — who pushed theories on television that Mr. Trump was framed by the F.B.I. — joined the roster. >

<Mr. Trump has weighed aloud in recent days to close associates whether to dismiss his lawyer Ty Cobb, who had pushed most strongly a strategy of cooperating fully with the special counsel investigation. The president reassured Mr. Cobb that he had no plans to fire him, according to a person who spoke with the president late Monday, in part to prevent a narrative that his team was in disarray after The New York Times began making inquiries. >

<Mr. Trump’s lead lawyer, John Dowd, has contemplated leaving his post because he has concluded that he has no control over the behavior of the president, the two people briefed on the matter said. Ignoring his lawyers’ advice, Mr. Trump has reverted to a more aggressive strategy of publicly assailing the inquiry that he initially adopted in the weeks immediately after the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, was appointed. Now the president has begun attacking Mr. Mueller himself.>

After claiming the Washington Post was making up a story about him seeking a new lawyer for his team just days ago it appears that Donald Trump will be adding noted conspiracy theorist attorney Joseph diGenova to his legal team.

Trump can't even keep his lies straight for a week. LOL

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

How disappointed will you be when that " walk outta the White House" doesn't happen until the end of his term or terms?

The Failing New York Times purposely wrote a false story stating that I am unhappy with my legal team on the Russia case and am going to add another lawyer to help out. Wrong. I am VERY happy with my lawyers, John Dowd, Ty Cobb and Jay Sekulow. They are doing a great job and.....

John Dowd resigned this morning. Guess the story was truthful after all.

Pretty much every story regarding tRUmp gets confirmed eventually.

Yeah sure, like the dossier has been confirmed. Oh wait, none of the 10 major claims have been confirmed. The FBI didn't even try to verify the dossier before using it to get a warrant for secret surveillance.

Oh and Muller's witch hunt has produced multiple indictments and guilty pleas for the Trump campaign colluding with the Russians. Oh wait, there aren't any.
