Russian’s $1 million to Parnas: Another stubborn fact for Trump surrogates to wave off

 
Attorney Scott Pilutik wrestles with the news of the day, from a lawyerly perspective…

[Regarding this story… Giuliani associate received $1 million payment from Ukrainian oligarch’s lawyer: prosecutor]

While Trump surrogates are breaking their brains to conceive of a conspiracy theory from cheesecloth and fairy dust that might exonerate him if you squint just so, it’s against a backdrop of a daily deluge of damning actual facts that John Le Carré would probably flinch at as cliched.

Rudy Giuliani is so off the rails now, it’s like he stole a cop car and is driving drunk in it

Attorney Scott Pilutik wrestles with the news of the day, from a lawyerly perspective…

In FBI probe, suddenly the Right cares about law enforcement and Fourth Amendment issues

 
Attorney Scott Pilutik wrestles with the news of the day, from a lawyerly perspective…

[Regarding this New York Times story by Charlie Savage: We Just Got a Rare Look at National Security Surveillance. It Was Ugly.]

The FBI’s conduct in obtaining the Carter Page warrant is pretty bad, even if it seems likely that they’d have gotten the warrant anyway, and despite that Carter Page wasn’t crucial to what was ultimately found. Police circumventing the Fourth Amendment is common everywhere, and that truism holds worse outside the FBI.

Jehovah’s Witnesses giving advice about family happiness? Lord have mercy.

 
Is an organization that rips apart families as a way to punish doubters really in a position to give advice about what’s best for family happiness?
