Of course he is dumb, but if an attorney was in the room the privilege does attach, does it not?

I mean, if Trump and his hellspawn say they requested advice from the attorney and it was given, how would the privilege not attach?

Because the questions aren’t about conversations with his attorney.

You can’t create attorney client privilege by just having a lawyer in the room. If that were the case, nobody would ever testify about something that happens in a boardroom.

Its a typical Trump tactic....the problem is that everyone continues to let them get away with it. If it were any one of us, we would be locked up for refusing to cooperate with authorities.

The attorney-client privilege doesn't attach to a conversation that a son had with his father when neither of them are lawyers and the fact that a lawyer happened to be in the room should not matter one bit.

You have to laugh at the idiocy of it all.

Don the Con and his clan have such arrogance and sense of privilege they BELIEVE they're smarter than anyone else.

They think they can outwit Mueller and his La Crème De Law Team. Oh, my sides.

AC privilege doesn't attach to conversations he had with his father, neither is an attorney. If an attorney was present that would mean substantive advice or counsel was offered to Jr and Sr on the subject. So basically, he had substantive conversations with Drumpf Sr. about Russian collusion.

Can you imagine what trump looks like when he wakes up in the morning or comes out of the shower? His hair is basically very very long bangs that he sweeps up and over. He also grows it really long in the back. Melania must be repulsed when she looks at him.

Don Jr is just stupid and so are the attorneys who are advising this family. I think junior is in for another slap from dad.

A college classmate of Donald Trump Jr. claims he once witnessed Donald Trump slap his son and knock him to the ground in front of his friends.

I susoect it doesn’t really matter. Sure he thinks he’s being terribly clever and came on on top in a grilling by politicians. Don’t think he respects politicians very much - and feels his own abilities as a hot shot real estate mogul are far superior. But he Won’t come out on top in any such encounter with Mueller. Even if If thinks he has - and that it was surprisingly easy! - you can bet it’s because they’ve laid sone sort of trap for him, where he incriminates himself further without even knowing it. Idiot.

As stupid as Don Jr. is, his attorney-client privilege spiel worked and left people confused. Bottom line is that he didn't answer the question, which gives Trump & Co. more time to figure out what Mueller knows and to come up with a strategy with their lawyers.

All of them are dumb but they're all seasoned crooks and criminals. People tend to underestimate that, but it's the reason neither of them has not gone to prison yet.

What R29 said; I'm Jr. is quite proud of himself for blowing off those know-nothing congress-types, but no doubt that Manafort & Flynn (and Jr's own stupid sloppy ways) have given Mueller all the ammunition he needs. Not only that, but you know Jared (and probably Ivanka) would stab him in the heart in a hot second. He's in deep shit, even if he is too stupid and cocky to realize it.

That is correct. What we don't know, however, is whose attorney he was and the nature of his relationship to the participants in this meeting. All of that is critical information to know before making a final judgment about the propriety of invoking the attorney-client privilege.

As stupid as Don Jr. is, his attorney-client privilege spiel worked and left people confused. Bottom line is that he didn't answer the question, which gives Trump & Co. more time to figure out what Mueller knows and to come up with a strategy with their lawyers.

Well, I don't think this is the end of the inquiry. I doubt that the Dems on the committee are going to leave it at that. And, the Repubs might not either. Plus, this wasn't Mueller's inquiry -- it was the Senate's. Not sure that this gives Jr. much of an advantage with the Special Counsel.
