White House Staffers Lawyer Up As Impeachment Threatens All Of Them

White House Staffers Lawyer Up As Impeachment Threatens All Of Them

Articles, Blog , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , 100 Comments


According to a new report in Politico, at
least a dozen current and former white house officials have been called to testify and
have testified, uh, as part of the ongoing impeachment inquiry in the house of representatives
and these dozen current and former officials are also scrambling to hire lawyers because
they’re also afraid that they’re going to go down with the ship here. What’s more than that is you have other officials
in the white house and they point out that these are mid level officials, not, you know,
just the people who make the copies or the coffee, mid level officials who are also lawyering
up right now because they don’t want to get embroiled in this scandal either. And to top it all off, they’re all trying
to stay off of TV and out of the reach of reporters because they don’t want to say something
publicly that is then going to lead to a subpoena for them to have to go and testify in front
of the committee. Now there’s also another problem back in the
Muller days, the Trump administration, Trump campaign, whoever it was, they had did set
up a legal defense fund for staffers to draw out of in case they got called in needed to
hire lawyers, yada yada. They have not done that this time, so all
these staffers and mid level officials are a little concerned because they don’t know
how they’re going to pay for a $1,500 an hour high price DC lawyer to represent them should
the need arise and for at least a dozen of them, the need has already arisen and they’re
having to pay for this themselves. Here is my analysis of all of this insanity
happening at the white house. Obviously you have some officials who have
no idea really what’s going on at all. They weren’t involved with this, but they
understand the chaos that comes with working for Donald Trump. They want to hire lawyers just to protect
themselves because they don’t want to get involved. This whole thing they think is silly. It’s crazy. It didn’t involve me. Don’t call me, but then you have the others. You have the others who did hear the phone
call, you had the others who were told to go hide that transcript on that secure server. Oh, and by the way, edit out some of the parts
where we talked about Joe and Hunter Biden. Those are the people who are very concerned. They’re hiring lawyers, not because they don’t
want to get involved, but because they understand that the defensive I was just following orders
isn’t going to fly and they know that they’ve done things that are wrong. They know the president has done things that
are wrong and they need to get the best lawyers that they can to prevent them from going to
prison and those are the people that we need to focus on. Those are the people that the house Democrats
need to start putting a little bit of pressure on because if they’re already afraid, afraid
for their future, afraid for their freedom, those are the people most likely willing to
flip. Those are the people most likely to go in
there and give up information to save their own skin. And those are the people that the Democrats
need to issue subpoenas to immediately because they were there, they were present. They know what’s going on, and they don’t
want to go to jail for this guy. And I think this is how the end of this story
is gonna end up playing out, whether it’s six months from now or a year from now, it’s
going to be some mid level officials who know they did something wrong, but they don’t want
to get in trouble. And so they’re going to try to cut a deal
and they’re going to say, listen, I don’t want to go to jail. I don’t want to lose everything I’ve built
for my entire life. I’m going to tell you everything that happened,
but you got to give me immunity. Democrats need to be cutting deals like that
left and right, because these people know what happened and they’re the ones who can
give us the missing bits of information that could very easily l

    Donald still trying to promote the same bullshit list of lies, while being under investigation for campaign fraud and many other charges pending, after he leaves office. He knows he's going to prison regardless. Republicans have to let go of Trump and help clean up our government. Get rid of all of those really unqualified people!

    The problem with this impeachment is, that the charges against Trump are worthy of impeachment, but you can not explain the charges without saying Hunter Biden.  And each time you say Hunter Biden, it's bad for the Democrats, especially for the "front runner" Joe Biden

    You know the you know what's about to hit the fan when everyone's lawyering up. Trumps going to need to get a new lawyer as well since Giuliani is likely to get indicted soon for acting as an unregistered foreign agent and for finance schemes, both of which were with his Ukrainian Buddy's who were arrested, as well as for his involvement with Conspiring to Interfere with the Fair Administration of Elections an Conspiracy to Commit Bribery, and for Contempt of Congress.
    FYI: There's an article online by Just Security called United States of America v. Rudolph W. Giuliani that explains just how screwed he is if your interested. It's the best, most easy to understand one I've found so far.

  • Carlos Jaramillo Post author

    How likely is it that Trump would throw the entire GOP under the bus to avoid prison? I mean he has demonstrated plenty of examples of being so fucking dumb that he could get lawyers to argue that they took advantage of a moron like the rumors were about Reagan and how he was just a puppet due to him having Alzheimer's Disease.

    During my 65 years, Renazikkklans have consistently been willing to commit crimes for their dear leaders. Nazis are hierarchical and Democrats are egalitarian making Dems less likely to commit atrocities on behalf of baas hawg. It also means Dems will never understand the lemming behavior consistently exhibited by MAGAts.

    I can't say anything for people who have left the administration, but any current federal employees who have or are going to testify are under the protection of the federal whistleblower retaliation laws and the US Office of Special Counsel.  Even if you are not a whistleblower specifically, you are still given the same protections.

    Rural towns and poorer suburban areas all over this country are watching tv stations owned by the right wing biased tv news behemoths such as Sinclair Broadcasting Group thus Trump propaganda is all over the news stations. These uneducated trailer park type of people can't afford cable television (or internet) and so they can't get information from both sides to see the big picture of the Trump coverups and corruption. This is getting to resemble the early stages of the Natzi regime.

    Problem: how does Congress give immunity to cooperating witnesses? It isn't a criminal investigation and they aren't federal prosecutors. The DOJ ( Bildo Barr) would need to provide immunity to those persons cooperating with the impeachment investigation. Maybe Barr would put them in protective custody too. ⚰
