President Trump is considering Laura Ingraham's godfather Pat Cipollone as new WH Counsel.

Earlier this week, Trump interviewed Cipollone, a former Justice Department attorney who practices commercial litigation at Stein Mitchell Cipollone Beato & Missner, according to two people familiar with the presidentís thinking.
Cipollone has been working behind the scenes advising Trumpís outside legal team since June. This is a developing story. It will be updated.

Pat became Ingrahamís godfather after she converted to Catholicism:

If you believe Trump truly represents America then you've swallowed the Big Lie

If you think itís necessary to get in the gutter and trade hate with Americans who are under his spell then youíve swallowed the Big Lie. If youíve given up hope that the egomaniac and his fellow crooks will be held accountable for purposefully acting to dismantle America, then youíve swallowed the Big Lie.

America is as sheís always been, a mix of diversity struggling to find a way forward together that somehow includes everyone. Itís not easy and at times itís been very messy but the ideal of a more perfect union continues in the hearts and minds of most Americans.

So itís up to us - the majority - to keep moving forward, refusing to believe that the whims of a madman, in cahoots with both foreign and domestic adversaries, have permanently changed who we are.

We will prevail, America will prevail. So long as we donít swallow the Big Lie.

Net Neutrality is gone. Today, The Asset attacked Google.

Iím sure when the egomaniac sleeps he dreams of controlling what each and every one of us sees and hears. You know, just like China, Russia, North Korea.

Those he admires the most.

I am convinced he will attempt to do the same, with the help of that jerk at the FCC and the KGOP.

We simply MUST take the House and the Senate.

Interesting tidbit from NBC's National Inquirer safe of secrets story:

Former Enquirer employees who spoke to the AP said that negative stories about Trump were dead on arrival dating back more than a decade when he starred on NBCís reality show ďThe Apprentice.Ē
In 2010, at Cohenís urging, the National Enquirer began promoting a potential Trump presidential candidacy, referring readers to a pro-Trump website Cohen helped create. With Cohenís involvement, the publication began questioning President Barack Obamaís birthplace and American citizenship in print, an effort that Trump promoted for several years, former staffers said.
The Enquirer endorsed Trump for president in 2016, the first time it had ever officially backed a candidate. In the news pages, Trumpís coverage was so favorable that the New Yorker magazine said the Enquirer embraced him ďwith sycophantic fervor.Ē

The Trump/Cohen/Pecker shenanigans go back a long way! Now I know why Cohen was called The Fixer.

My take on the Manafort trial.

I think we can all agree this case is extraordinary, and the outcome will be a landmark decision. In spite of the judgeís personality quirks, I am choosing to believe he is not compromised. We now know heís received threats; there are people out there trying to intimidate him. Heís keping the names of jurors sealed for their protection.

The jury. Iíve sat on a jury and know it can take awhile to process multiple counts. This case is complex with 400 pages of documents. I am choosing to believe that the jury members are aware of the importance of this case and are taking their responsibilities seriously, going through each charge and supporting testimony/documents individually. That can take some time. I would be concerned if they finish too quickly.

I expect a verdict on Tuesday, mixed verdict on the charges.
