(My bold) Sure that’s your reason. Your golfer in chief spends millions of taxpayer dollars every weekend but now you care about “wasting money”. Investigating how Russia hacked into our electoral process is probably the number one national security matter. Your dishonesty is summarily dismissed.

So you agree that it is nothing but political, would that then not make it smart for trump to fire Mueller now, citing that very thing!

So I agree?? LOL I certainly don't EVER agree with you....so NO?? If Trump wants to fire Mueller NOW.....he'd better get busy.

I see that Prez Clemency has pardoned Scooter Libby so maybe he's on a roll.

That's just wishful thinking there Jimbo !!! Just saw an article about the ratings and viewership. While Faux News, with it's love affair with, and unbridled support of, all things Trump is still number one, THEY ARE LOSING VIEWERS. Double digit drops in some areas.

At the same time, the very liberal MSNBC has moved into the number 2 slot !!!

You people do realize that the FBI raid on Cohen's office HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE MUELLER investigation ?? Mueller found something that looks inappropriate and possibly illegal and he did what he should have done. TURNED IT OVER THE FBI for further investigation.

I'm wondering if Cohen has crossed the line somewhere. There is attorney client privilege. But only as long as the attorney is acting as an attorney. If he has cross the line and started actively acting in concert with others, the president included, in an illegal activity then A-C privilege goes out the window an he can be indicted as a conspirator.
Thanks from goober and Clara007

I read somewhere an explanation about where attorney-client privilege ends. If there is something illegal involving third parties involved, the privilege disappears.

There have been several tweets from reporters discussing this saying that probably a committee of lawyers will be given the task of examining the information seized from Cohen and will be tasked with evaluating which if any maintain their privileged status.

My understanding is, as long as the attorney is acting on behalf of their client AFTER the client has committed some crime, then A-C privilege certainly applies. But if the attorney is knowingly involved BEFORE the crime is committed, or actively participates in the crime, ie: advising the client on how not to get caught or how to mislead investigators, then no A-C privilege exists.

And yes I read somewhere that the FBI and DOJ have a very strict protocol for dealing with what is or isn't under privilege. A separate, in no way connected to the investigation, panel sifts through anything collected from the attorney and sets aside anything that might be considered privileged.

If private conversations between attorney and client are leaked mueller and a lot of people at the fbi need to go to jail.
