NEW YORK (AP) — A National Rifle Association leader-turned-critic is meeting with New York investigators next week, and the NRA wants to be there.a

New York's attorney general's office is questioning Oliver North on Tuesday as it probes whether the NRA broke laws governing its nonprofit status.

The powerful gun lobby asked a New York state judge Friday to let it in the meeting, saying it would be "severely prejudiced" if privileged information is divulged.

In court papers, it said it had asked the attorney general's office to be included in the meeting but was told it would be burdensome and was refused.

The NRA cited grounds why some information could be kept from investigators, including attorney client privilege, work-product rules and other unspecified privileges.

8. And the amount of NRA $ spent on personal expenses, benefits to the CEO, is stunning.

Hope all the dues paying members realizing they're paying for the grifting by their leaders.

2. Hope GunGuys know this is a prosecution of their rights group by President Trump's Administration.

The only President I have ever heard propose a gun grab was Trump, who said Take The Guns Now and Due Process Later!

Republicans, please, the NRA doesn't support Trump because he sticks up for gun owners. The NRA supports him because he is good for business.

4. Attorney-Client Privilege? Since when is Oliver North an attorney? Someone is taking a page from

Trump's desperate legal moves--sans any ability to even create an argument.

5. Yeah, you'd think the client had the right to disclose the information

"In Soviet Russia, attorney censors you. Also in NRA, tovarisch".

6. I hope he shows up in dress uniform to the hearing. Again.

'God and Country. I did everything for God and Country.'

What about the drugs, Ollie?

'God wanted me to torpedo the Country by running drugs.'

Remember him running around naked, brandishing a gun, in the DC suburbs?

So patriotic.

'Honey, did I ever go shopping at Park Lane Hosiery?'

11. The NRA is in a position to demand nothing.

I hope the legal system tells them to get lost.
