Auntie was thinking more of a Lorena Bobbitt approach.


omg, someone put up a Craigslist ad in DC titled 'SEEKING LEAD ATTORNEY FOR DIFFICULT CLIENT'


...Not that there is anything wrong with that

President Trump has told his aides that Stormy Daniels is not his type.

Apparently he prefers short, bare-chested, Russian men.

Not that there is anything wrong with that.


Good morning.


Judge: Trump Admin. Must Consider Climate Change in Major Drilling and Mining Lease Plan

The plan covers 15 million acres in the Powder River Basin of Montana and Wyoming. The ruling on it is the latest to cite risks of fossil fuels and global warming.

A federal court has ruled against a U.S. Interior Department plan to open more than 15 million acres of public land and mineral rights to fossil fuel extraction, concluding that the government failed to adequately consider how the oil, gas and coal development would affect the climate and other environmental resources.

The U.S. District Court decision Friday in Montana throws a new roadblock before the Trump administration's goal of expanding and accelerating fossil extraction from federal lands.

The case was filed in 2016 by a coalition of environmental groups over a plan by the Interior Department's Bureau of Land Management to lease federally owned land in the Powder River Basin of eastern Montana and Wyoming. While the BLM plan included the possibility of oil and gas development in the area, the Powder River Basin is the country's largest coal producing region. About 40 percent of all the coal burned in the U.S. comes from the area, and it accounts for about 10 percent of the country's annual greenhouse gas emissions.

The plaintiffs contended that the fossil fuel development plans for the vast Miles City, Montana, and Buffalo, Wyoming, federal tracts violated the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) by failing to account fully for the damage the coal, oil and gas would do to the environment, including the climate.

The area holds about 10.2 billion tons of coal and the possibility of 18,000 new oil and gas wells, the plaintiffs estimated.

Daily Beast: Stormy Daniels might not be the only porn star suing President Trumps attorney

EXCLUSIVE: Stormy Daniels’ Friend Alana Evans: I’m Also Going to Sue Michael Cohen


Evans said she was thrilled to hear of Daniels’ defamation claim, as she gears up to file one of her own by the end of the month.

“We’re not going to stand by as these two powerful men spread their falsehoods about what happened,” Evans told The Daily Beast.

The adult film star has publicly spoken about Daniels’ alleged 2006 romp with The Donald at a celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe.

Back then, Evans was Daniels’ neighbor and close friend and happened to be in Lake Tahoe, too. Evans said Daniels repeatedly called her and tried persuading her to come to Trump’s hotel room, but Evans declined the invitation.

“Stormy calls me four or five times, by the last two phone calls she’s with Donald [Trump] and I can hear him, and he’s talking through the phone to me saying, ‘Oh come on Alana, let’s have some fun! Let’s have some fun! Come to the party, we’re waiting for you,’” Evans told The Daily Beast earlier this year.

The next day, Daniels dished on her rendezvous with the reality TV star. She told Evans, “All I’m going to say is: I ended up with Donald in his hotel room. Picture him chasing me around his hotel room in his tighty-whities.”

“I was like, ‘Oh I really didn’t need to hear that!’ Then she said he offered her keys to his condos in Florida, and I was like, ‘Wow guess you had a good night,’ and that was the last we ever spoke of it,” Evans added.

Since her interview, Evans has appeared on TV to discuss her reaction to every installment of what’s become the Stormy soap opera—and, as the president of the Adult Performers Actors Guild, to support her friend and fellow performer.

Vanity Fair: Mueller viewing Trump as "a target, not a witness"?


The president’s struggle to recruit experienced lawyers could mask more ominous concerns. “As far as I can tell, Ty Cobb is the only attorney left on the Trump team with experience handling federal criminal investigations,” says one former prosecutor. “The team is thinner than you might expect for perhaps the most important investigation of our lifetime.”


......“What happened between last week, when DiGenova and Toensing were announced as joining the team, and yesterday?” mused Neal Katyal, a former acting solicitor general under President Obama. “The conflict of interest issue was apparent on Tuesday, and yet we were told they were joining the team and that Mark Corallo (the person with the most significant conflict) had waived any concern. Then Dowd resigns Thursday, and yet by Sunday DiGenova and Toensing are gone, leaving the president with only two lawyers.” That strange development, Katyal posited to me, suggests that Robert Mueller may have intervened. “Diligent prosecutors, when they see a defendant doing something profoundly dangerous to their self-interest (including hiring lawyers who have conflicts), will raise it with the defendant and suggest they rethink it,” he explained. “I think it very possible that that happened here—Mueller is a scrupulous prosecutor and may have told Trump he had concerns about Trump’s own rights. If it did happen, it would strongly suggest that Mueller is formally thinking of Trump as a target of his investigation . . . A prosecutor would issue such a warning to a target, not to a witness."


Stormy was just a warm-up,Mueller won't 'spare the rod'
