But does he? I haven't seen a post of his in a loooong time.

Maybe I'm not reading the threads he posts in, though.

Manafort, Cohen, and Individual 1 Are in Grave Danger
Federal prosecutors filed three briefs late on Friday portending grave danger for three men: former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort, former Trump fixer Michael Cohen, and President Donald J. Trump. In an age when Americans usually get mere squibs of breaking news from Twitter and Facebook and red-faced cable shouters, many started their weekends poring over complex legal filings and peering suspiciously at blacked-out paragraphs. The documents were stunning, even for 2018.

the gem: (regarding Cohen's guilty plea to lying to congress)
Most significant, the Special Counsel indicates Cohen “described the circumstances of preparing and circulating his response to the congressional inquiries, while continuing to accept responsibility for the false statements within it.” That statement suggests that the Special Counsel believes that someone in the Trump administration knew of, and approved in advance, Cohen’s lies to Congress. That’s explosive, and potentially impeachable if Trump himself is implicated.

Does anyone else listen to the All the President's Lawyers podcast? I recently started and I've run into a bug where the podcast plays fine until what sounds like the first commercial break. At that point, my MP3 player says the file is unreadable. I've tried 4 different weeks and it's happened to all of them. I download the podcasts through iTunes.

I've enjoyed what I've heard but I've never really heard him finish making a point. :D
I finally got a new MP3 player and have been catching up. This is a really, really good podcast.

Whenever I see a reference to Mr Fed online or in the news I have to resist the urge to shout, ""I know that guy!" Of course, the fact that I don't actually know much of anything about that guy for real doesn't play into things much. I've tried explaining how I know him to my wife and it came off as pretty pathetic.

You know that guy Isgrimnur that I play board games with once or twice a year? It's kid of like him except I've never actually met him in person... I might have met someone that met him though! I've been aware of him for a long time dammit! Hell, he might even recognize my... uhhh... username.

Everyone's favorite moonbat, Louise Mensch, seems to think Popehat is going to wind up getting arrested as a byproduct of the Roger Stone shenanigans.

She thinks that because Popehat has connections to InfoWars attorney Marc Randazza that, by some weird drug addled magic, Popehat is connected to Roger Stone.

I'm surprised to find that Rowsdower Randazza is a friend of Popehat. Sounds like he's a pretty rotten individual. Although perhaps the connection/relationship is being inflated by some circles.

Lawyers routinely accept a scumbags as clients. It's kind of their job and not always an accurate indicator of the lawyers' moral compass.

It's definitely quite the leap for Mensch to try to tie together Popehat and Roger Stone in that manner. But it's not out of Mensch's typical modus operandi.

I wonder if the Marshal of the Supreme Court is on the case.

They do note that he has written pieces on Popehat. Although that is also not an indicator that the two are actually friends, as some are trying to say.

I don't know anything about Randazza except from what I've read of his pieces on Popehat. But a person can be friends with people who end up doing bad things without being a bad person themselves. As for the legal representation, lawyers lawyer...it's why the system works.

Anyway, here's the post where Randazza joined Popehat.

To be fair to Fed, I only remember his praise in relation to 1st amendment issues. When he first started getting into all the 1st amendment stuff, Randazza was one of his main go-tos.

I just want to say that I found Randazza obnoxious on popehat and avoided his posts. I got the feeling that popehat was trying to "both sides" the issues whenever Randazza posted. The idea that Ken is in jeopardy because of Randazza is hilarious though. I mean, anything is possible, but that would be a major traumatic event in my world view, that's how unlikely I think it is.

Nah, Randazza is a good 1st Amendment Lawyer, as best I can tell. He also doesn't appear to have too much of a moral compass, but he does share some of Fed's libertarian (small 'l') leanings/distrust of government over-reach.

Mr Fed has some thoughts regarding Mr Avenatti.

Character Is Destiny. And Michael Avenatti Is a Bloviator.
Nobody would ever describe Michael Avenatti as circumspect. But this month, the outspoken lawyer, Donald Trump adversary, and media enthusiast appears to have achieved historic levels of recklessness, culminating in the FBI arresting him Monday morning in the lavish Manhattan offices of the power firm Boies Schiller Flexner LLP. In a dramatic reversal of fortune, the man who made the president of the United States and his fixer abandon enforcement of a sordid hush-money agreement found himself charged with serious federal crimes in both New York and Los Angeles. True to form, he seems to have talked his way there, and is trying to talk his way out again.
Michael Avenatti feels things fiercely and speaks them forcefully. Earlier this month, he called me at work to blast me for writing unflattering things about him. I’m not so special; he occasionally yells at journalists, media personalities, and lawyers, who then share their experiences on social media. He spent most of the rather surreal call swearing at me and decrying me as a loser and a nobody who would never achieve what he has. This is arguable. Though my mouth gets me in trouble on a regular basis, it has not, as of this date, gotten me charged with federal crimes on both coasts.
