Trump shakes up team of lawyers as legal threats mount

"President Trump shook up his legal team Monday by hiring a combative former prosecutor who has publicly argued that Trump is the target of an elaborate FBI conspiracy marking another confrontational move by the president against the rapidly mounting legal threats facing him and his administration.
Joe diGenova, a TV pundit and former U.S. attorney who was a longtime antagonist of Bill and Hillary Clinton, is the latest addition to the sprawling array of lawyers assembled to represent Trump on two main fronts: in the probe of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and in the case of an adult film star who claims an adulterous affair.
The hiring caught many of his advisers by surprise, prompting fears that Trump is preparing for bigger changes to his legal team including possible departures as he goes on the offensive in the primary legal challenges facing him.
Trump is not consulting with top advisers, including Chief of Staff John F. Kelly and chief White House lawyer Donald McGahn, on his Russia legal choices or his comments about the probe, according to one person with knowledge of his actions, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe sensitive conversations. He is instead watching television and calling friends, this person said."

1. I can't wait for dumpf to fall

Like a whole lot of others I assume, my hopes are always up no matter that the MSM keeps harping on its latest tweets or other mumbling brain farts from the disfigured cheeto.

The news on this gets better everyday even though a lot of information was already out there for months it's all being tied together by journalists digging it out, lately it seems they're wearing out shovels it's so deep.

Just in time for summer, the gang who couldn't think straight goes down in flames, they can't survive this, it's all over but the last gasp of an incoherent blubbering orange idiot being removed from power, and his wealth.

Then the crying starts, I can't wait, I really can't.
