Scoop: Trump lawyers to avoid Michigan lawmaker meeting after COVID exposure

Source: Axios

Rudy Giuliani and other key members of President Trump's outside legal team won't be attending today's meeting with two Michigan lawmakers because they've been exposed to the coronavirus, two sources familiar with the internal discussions tell Axios.

Why it matters: This added turmoil inside the president's legal operation comes at a time when the president is urging Republican state lawmakers to interfere with the electoral process and reverse Joe Biden's victory to a Trump win.

"It's just a shitshow, it's a joke," said a Trump campaign adviser.

Behind the scenes: Top Trump campaign officials held a conference call this morning with Eric Herschmann, a lawyer on the White House staff, in which they candidly discussed their legal conundrum.

1. "Legal conundrum?" Hey, you lost the election!

That's it!

No "conundrum."

Game over.

2. Looks like the legal freak show is about to grind to a halt:

Trump's campaign lawyers have been holed up for days in a conference room at Trump campaign headquarters in Arlington, Va., one of the sources said, Andrew Giuliani had been around all of them.


The way Rudy conducted himself yesterday--talking gibberish, leaking hair dye across his cheeks, sweating profusely and wiping boogers all over his face--how long before the announcement comes that he's tested positive?

6. Probably because the lawyers refused to attend

Ethically, they cannot be a part of any bullying/bribing that is going to ensue.

13. Remember when Trump invited Comey and shoved everyone else out of the room?

This bribe/loyalty oath/NDA signing with the 2 MI MAGAts is probably like that.

8. If there wasn't so much at stake, this would have me rolling in the aisles

What a bunch of fuck ups.

I personally think they hacked electronic voting machines but fucked that up also which eventually led to this ridiculous set up they are going through now.
And Giuliani is the perfect idiot from central casting to lead this bunch of fuck ups.

9. The Gang That Couldn't Coup Straight

I gotta say, I am thankful every day that these malevolent bastards are so laughably incompetent.

To all the Congressional asshats who have been propping up Trump and his ineffectual dregs in the White House: Nice Republican™ brand you've built there, boys.

11. So they have been arguing in court this past week

and even had a back and forth the federal judge here in PA about "masks" and now this?

So is that judge going to quarantine while throwing the whole mess out?

12. Covid Exposure Bull. They do not want to be implicated

in a Federal election and/or voting rights crime. Michigan DOP lawmakers should take note.

15. Why is his campaign officials holding a conference call with a White House staff lawyer?

Wouldn't this be out of bounds for the staff lawyer to be advising the campaign.
