President Donald Trump is bringing in Washington super-lawyer Ty Cobb to run defense inside the White House on the “Russia” investigations. Cobb, who is related to the first-ever Baseball Hall of Famer, worked on the other side of the aisle when U.S. officials had to lawyer up during the Clinton administration. But he’s not a partisan and his ability to get the job done is prized by the Trump White House.
Cobb brings some stability and unity to the pro-Trump legal effort, which is already getting its wires mixed up. Son-in-law Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka retained the services of major Hillary Clinton supporter Jamie Gorelick, a partner at WilmerHale, where Robert Mueller served as partner until May, when he signed on to become the government’s special counsel in the “Russia” case. Gorelick was the one who conveniently disclosed Kushner and Don Jr.’s meeting with a Russian attorney in Trump Tower (after Kushner previously did not disclose it). In other words, Gorelick outed Don Jr.’s meeting.
On Friday, news came in that Gorelick is “stepping back” on the case. She is handing over duties to Kushner’s other lawyer Abbe Lowell.
Now, Cobb can consolidate the Trump defense efforts inside the White House, while Jay Sekulow and Trump’s outside lawyers hammer away at other aspects of the case.
It is becoming increasingly clear in Washington that the Deep State has been trying to set up Trump on the “Russia” issue for a very long time now. The Russian lawyer who met with Don Jr. and Kushner in Trump Tower was allowed into the country to work a case opposite the Department of Justice lawyer Preet Bharara, a major Trump critic who is on Mueller’s team in the Russia case. This, insiders believe, could prove to be the monumental conflict-of-interest that gets Bharara bumped from the Russia case and undermines Mueller’s entire team right out of the gate.
Defense Secretary Confirms White House Will Let Cities Burn and Let Mobs Loot Without Military Intervention
The White House seems content to let America burn on their watch.
Defense Secretary Mark Esper has made it clear that the Trump administration will not be intervening with federal forces to put down mobs in cities that have been on fire for days amidst leftist riots and strife.
Esper started his press conference by bemoaning the “horrible crime” committed by police officer Derek Chauvin against serial felon George Floyd in the Minneapolis streets and said all the cops involved should “be held accountable for his murder.”
“With great sympathy, I want to extend the deepest of condolences to the family and friends of George Floyd, for me and the department,” Esper said during a briefing at the Pentagon.
“Racism is real in America, and we must all do our very best to recognize it, to confront it, and to eradicate it,” he added, echoing Black Lives Matter talking points.
Esper made it clear that there are no plans to unleash military on the streets to restore order. He claimed that the emergency going on right now did not indicate the need for this kind of response. Esper is apparently content to let the streets burn, property be destroyed, and law enforcement to be run down in the streets like dogs without intervening.
“The option to use active-duty forces in a law enforcement role should only be used as a matter of last resort and only in the most urgent and dire of situations. We are not in one of those situations now,” Esper said.
Esper should tell that to retired St. Louis police captain David Dorn, the 77-year-old man who was gunned down in the streets by rioting savages on Tuesday morning.
Big League Politics reported:
Dorn, who retired from the St. Louis Police Department in 2007, was found dead around 2:30AM on Tuesday morning. Surveillance camera footage revealed that he had been shot and killed by a looter as he was defending Lee’s Pawn and Jewelry.
His wife, Ann Marie Dorn, who still works for the police department, stated that David was a friend of the pawn shop’s owner and would secure the premises when the burglar’s alarm went off at the property. Dorn was 77 years old.
President Donald Trump mourned for Dorn in a Tuesday Facebook post, pointing to the senior citizen as a tragic casualty of the nationwide race riots that have resulted in widespread death and destruction following the death of George Floyd.
Esper should also tell that this situation is not “urgent and dire” to the family of the U.S. Marshal that was shot in the head by a thug and later pronounced deceased during Las Vegas riots on Monday.
Big League Politics reported:
8 News Now Metro of Las Vegas is reporting that a U.S. Marshal has been killed after being shot in the head during Monday’s race riots.
Reports emerged late on Monday that a U.S. Marshal had been killed during a shootout with an armed rioter near the city’s federal courthouse.
8 News Now originally reported that the marshal had been shot in the head. The shooting death appeared to take place after the evening’s protest and riot activities had been contained by law enforcement, perhaps suggesting that an armed rioter intentionally targeted law enforcement in the shooting.
Because of deep state bureaucrats like Esper, President Trump is watching his country descend into chaos and anarchy while doing little other than offering bluster as his nation burns.
