BLT: Bungling Legal Team?

From the New York DAILY NEWS:

Trump lawyer Ty Cobb was caught dishing on the White House’s legal drama amid the Justice Department’s Russia probe while dining at a Washington D.C. steakhouse, according to a report Sunday.

[Ken Vogel,] A New York Times reporter overheard the veteran D.C. lawyer with a large handlebar mustache “casually & loudly” airing his dispute with White House counsel Don McGahn. Cobb joined the White House’s legal team in July to assist with Russia-related inquiries.

“They do not grasp their essential irrelevance.”

There is an excellent essay at VANITY FAIR written by SARAH ELLISON that discusses the ever-evaporating influence and power of Twitler’s daughter/wife and her husband. It’s very long, so I will just give you a smattering of amuse-bouches to whet your appetite for the entire thing.

“What is off-putting about them,” one political veteran told me, “is they do not grasp their essential irrelevance. They think they are special.”

Chips Off the Old Blockhead

From Newsweek:

[I]n the wake of Donald Trump Jr.’s admission to taking and sitting in on a meeting built around gaining significant political opposition research on Democrat Hillary Clinton last year from the Russian government, one Republican lawmaker is suggesting the president remove his family from political matters.
