Several folks in Donald Trump's crew lawyered
up after Don Jr.'s testimony last week

Hm, anybody else notice the number of folks in Donald Trump’s crew who lawyered up after Donald Trump Jr.’s closed door testimony last Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee?

The word is that former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, former White House Press Secretary/Communications Director Sean Spicer, White House Communications Director Hope Hicks, White House Lawyer Don McGahn, Senior Associated Lawyer to the President James Burnham, and Jared Kushner’s work buddy Josh Raffel all got lawyers following Junior’s testimony.

And why did they get lawyers you ask? Welp, it turns out Special Counsel Robert Mueller wants to have a sit down with them about Russia.

Specifically, Mueller will like to know about the meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, Sally Yates’ firing associated with Michael Flynn and his Russian dealings, James Comey’s firing, and of course whether any of these folks know who might have helped Russia to meddle in the 2016 Presidential election.

Everybody in Trump’s crew has said they’ve done nothing wrong. And all this talk about them allegedly colluding with the Russians is a bunch of bull designed to take away from their belief that “What Happened” was not Russia but Hillary Clinton herself.

However, what these folks refuse to realize is that although Clinton does bear some responsibility for not being the Mad-damn president, it doesn’t undermine the fact that the evidence against Trump and his crew’s alleged involvement with Russia is becoming more convincing by the second.

Take for instance Don Jr. In July, Junior snitched on himself and everybody else when he admitted, via his Tweets, that he had lied about a New York Times report linking him to Russian lawyer Veselnitskaya and the intent of the meeting; which was to go to a foreign adversary in order to get dirt on the 2016 Democratic Presidential Nominee.

Then there’s that whole bit with information showing that Trump was involved in writing his son’s statement to a congressional committee about his Russian meeting when prior to that the White House said Trump was not involved.

Yep, Trump and his crew got caught in a lie there. Let us also not forget about
Trump’s lawyer and longtime associate Michael Cohen who got caught in an email exchange with his friend Felix Sater talking about getting Vladimir Putin to support a Donald Trump presidency.

Or, as Sater put it, “Our boy can become president of the USA and we can engineer it. I will get all of Putins team to buy in on this.”

Their “boy” did indeed become president. And now, Mueller wants to see the map that Putin and his minions used in order to snake their way into the Oval Office, via Trump.

Fortunately for Mueller, Junior can’t stop telling on himself. According to several media reports, Junior told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he didn’t see anything wrong with meeting with Russian lawyer Veselnitskay in order to get dirt on Hillary Clinton because the meeting was about her fitness to be president.

Yep, Junior met with a Russian in order to determine if an American presidential nominee is fit to be president. And as to be expected, Junior’s admission is not helping Reince Priebus, Sean Spicer, Hope Hicks, Don McGahn, James Burnham, and Josh Raffel.

They’re all in a hot mess now because they have to think of a way to get all of their stories straight about the goings on with Trump crew during and after the election.

Priebus, the former RNC chairman, and Spicer, the former RNC spokesman, are in a unique position because they worked closely with Trump’s crew during the election and will have knowledge about any dealings and interactions the campaign might have had with the Russians.

Also, Priebus and Spicer, along with McGahn and Burnham, know about the decision leading to Sally Yates firing and James Comey’s firing.

Hicks and Raffel know about that letter that Trump Senior’s crew said he didn’t have anything to do with but latter said he did have something to do with. Mm-hmm, they’re all knee deep in it.

As folks know, there are three sides to the truth; your side, their side, and the truth.

And the only way for any of these folks to make sure their side doesn’t lead to them sleeping inside a prison is to get a lawyer; which is what they’ve all done.
