Trump Jr. cites attorney-client privilege in not answering panel's questions about discussions with his father

Oh boy, is Junior really that dumb?

by Anonymousreply 4012/08/2017

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

by Anonymousreply 112/07/2017

Well bless his heart......

by Anonymousreply 212/07/2017

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

by Anonymousreply 312/07/2017

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.

That must have been his attorneys advice. Maybe they see something useful in it.

by Anonymousreply 512/07/2017

Wow he’s dumber than I thought.

by Anonymousreply 612/07/2017

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.

He is stupid and has a face I'd like to smack till it falls off. Why does that entire family have such irritating, nasty faces?

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.

Watching The Godfather the other day, I realized that Junior really is Fredo Corleone... and that Drumpf really thinks he is The Don.

R8 - Because they're irritating, nasty people.

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.

Little Donny is so afraid of Big Daddy's wrath that he can't spill the beans.

Being relentlessly smug, arrogant and stupid is a hard look to pull off.

I feel like I did when I was a child and saw spoiled little assholes doing something that, to me, was forbidden. How in the hell do they get away with all of the impropriety and lying?

by Anonymousreply 1612/07/2017

I can't tell you anything because there was a priest in the room, so I invoke the protection of the confessional.

by Anonymousreply 1712/07/2017

Every lawyer that commented on this in the media says there is no lawyer-client privilege in this case.

We KNOW something incriminating was said because he wont say

by Anonymousreply 1812/07/2017

Sadly the Republicans on the committee said he was very forthcoming.

by Anonymousreply 1912/07/2017

He also had alot of "I don't remember" moments.

How did the Trumps ever run a real estate empire if they can't remember anything?

Trump's father also had that oily hair his son sported

by Anonymousreply 2512/07/2017

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.

by Anonymousreply 2612/07/2017

His father looks like his genetic makeup is a combo of poison, white refined flour and sugar, turpentine and grease.

And WHAT attorney-client privilege. Nobody in that dumpster Fire of a family ever so much as SMELLED law school. Chinless Jr. is going down.

by Anonymousreply 2712/07/2017

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.

by Anonymousreply 2812/07/2017

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.

by Anonymousreply 2912/07/2017

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.

by Anonymousreply 3012/07/2017

I just heard that if someone else was in the room besides the Attorney and his client, then that negates any Attorney-Client privilege claims.

by Anonymousreply 3112/07/2017

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.

R6 And what we thought was, Eric was the dumb one.

by Anonymousreply 3412/07/2017

Did anyone on the Committee inform him that 'that's not a thing' and compel him to answer though?

by Anonymousreply 3512/07/2017

It doesnt matter....Devin Nunes was cleared in his Ethics Investigation.....so hell probably resume his role as chairman of the Intelligence Committee.

by Anonymousreply 3612/07/2017

He's not dumb, he's brazen. He knows the House and Senate, being under GOP control, won't do anything.

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.

[quote] 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.

Can't help but wonder how big his dick is, though

by Anonymousreply 3912/07/2017

Wanna bet that the attorney (supposed) in the room was Michael Cohen ?
