"Tread very fucking lightly, because what I’m going to do to you is going to be fucking disgusting."

Donald Trump's lawyer threatens reporter over ex-wife's allegations: 'You cannot rape your spouse'

http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/jul/28/donald-trump-lawyer-threatens-reporter?CMP=fb_us

The Daily Beast story repeated details of a deposition relayed by a Trump biographer, who described the mogul as forcing himself on his then-wife as revenge for her encouraging him to undergo a painful and unsuccessful scalp reduction surgery in the late 1980s.

The 1993 book, by author Harry Hurt III, includes a statement from Ivana Trump stating that she referred to the sexual encounter in question “as a ‘rape’, but I do not want my words to be interpreted in a literal or criminal sense”. Donald Trump has long insisted that the assertion of assault was “false”.

But Cohen, Trump’s lawyer and a spokesman who has helped control his candidate’s message in maintaining the Republican poll lead over more experienced politicians, went much further than that. According to the Daily Beast, he issued a series of vulgar quotes when questioned by its reporter.

“I will make sure that you and I meet one day while we’re in the courthouse. And I will take you for every penny you still don’t have. And I will come after your Daily Beast and everybody else that you possibly know,” Cohen told the website. “So I’m warning you, tread very fucking lightly, because what I’m going to do to you is going to be fucking disgusting. You understand me?”

3. Any questions about the value of money? About who has to follow the rules and who does not?

Whether this bully can go through with any of these threats or not is not the point.

The average person simply would not risk going up against someone who can drown them in lawsuits and so on.

4. When this was posted earlier, I asked...

if it was unethical for a lawyer to threaten a lawsuit.

Technically unethical or not, though, this guy is a scumbag with a mouth worthy of his boss.

6. The point being...

As long as you have the money and certainty that the courts are in favor of the monied, bullying is the way to go when someone exposes the facts about criminals with money.
