Rules still don't apply in Clinton World

October 27, 2017

Remember when Cheryl Mills accompanied Hillary Clinton as her attorney in a case for which she could also have been called as a witness? We hardly even knew how to think about that at the time. In court, judges typically don’t allow a potential witness in a case to also serve as a lawyer, for obvious reasons. That person can be either a witness or a lawyer, but not both. You’d think members of a Congressional committee might have a problem with that, too.

Well, the same strangely cozy arrangement is on display again in Clinton World. When Hillary’s campaign chairman John Podesta was called in to meet with Congressional investigators regarding that infamous Russia dossier from Fusion GPS, guess who was there as his lawyer?

In case the name “Marc Elias” doesn’t ring a bell, I’ll let this excerpt from CNN’s report refresh your memory: READ MORE.

“Sitting next to Podesta during the interview: his attorney Marc Elias, who worked for the law firm that hired Fusion GPS to continue research on Trump on behalf of the Clinton campaign and DNC, multiple sources said.”

What?? (Sound of brakes screeching.) Let’s all stop and think about that for a moment.

The story goes on to clarify: “Elias was only there in his capacity as Podesta’s attorney and not as a witness.”

Oh, okay. Then I suppose that, as Podesta’s attorney, he can now invoke attorney-client privilege if investigators decide at some point that it might be enlightening to question him, too. This arrangement is so crazy, I’m surprised that any court of law --- or even a meeting with members of Congress that calls for legal counsel --- would allow it. The meeting took place before it was revealed that Hillary’s campaign and the DNC had paid millions of dollars to Fusion GPS to finance the Russia dossier. Now that those dots have been connected, it might be good to put Marc Elias in the hot seat as well, but since he's John Podesta’s attorney, his own lawyer (another Clinton crony?) will likely be able to keep him out of it. Then he won't have to bother pleading the Fifth as two Fusion GPS people have done.

PLEASE LEAVE ME A COMMENT BELOW.  I READ THEM!

    So what you are saying is that the Republicans are dumber than we thought.

    Thank you for letting me voice my opinion. No not really, getting them to talk is very simple. We did it when we had a problem with a soldier who tried to skirt the system in the military. Everything is above board and you normally get your culprit in about 2 days. They say to catch a criminal you have to have the mindset of a criminal, and this is very true. I say this because before I joined the Navy in 92 I was a police officer. In 05 went Blue to Green and retired from the Army in 14. So if it worked from 92 thru 14 it works now. Very Easy.

    I like the disbar idea. I am sure there would be something there to look at after all look who he's with. Maybe child porn on his computer.

    There are multiple lawyers serving on these committees. Why do they allow corrupt interrogations of the Clinton's?

    We've spent the last 8 years hearing how "unequal" the judicial system is and dems have been working (under Obamas leadership) to get crooks out of jail based on racial bias. And then enters the dem leaders and what do we have? Unequal justice under the law, i.e. IRS issuing apologies rather than getting a prison sentence for obstruction and denial of Constitutional guarantees. Go figure........

    The solution is easy. Disbar both Elias and Mills.

    I just don't know what to say anymore!! It's like the worst nightmare that goes on, and on, and on, and you can't wake up from it!!

    I am sick of the machinations of people who are trying so very hard to cover their tracks, when they have been caught red-handed (red as in Mother Russia?), doing wrong. The on-going revelations will ultimately answer the question: are there two levels of justice; one for the elite and another for the everyday citizen?

    Ethics weren’t taught at his Law School as much as Cover your Assets evidently.

    The Congress had been investigating Hillary since Benghazi but nothing came out of it. This is a waste of time of everybody's time and making the Clintons laugh at us since they are indeed untouchables. I don't trust the Congress will do anything about all these inquiry. Session should appoint a special prosecutor once and for all and stop recusing himself since all these Russia and Trump collusion is now found to be concoction by Hillary and the DNC.Hillary is the most corrupt politician in US history. Thank God she lost!

    Thank you for your insight and information. I am a big fan of yours and also your daughter Sarah. Both of you are a strong force for president Trump and our Christian values. May God bless you, but I know He will. You continue to do His work and the American people are helped by it.

    Since Fusion GPS is squarely in the middle of the investigation, wouldn't Elias's position as Podesta's attorney be a conflict of interest? Shouldn't he have to recuse himself? I am not an attorney but it looks suspicious to me.

  • Evelyn O'Sullivan

    For example...if Podesta has been given proper notice that he will be called as a witness...would he then not be able to cop out as Attorney ?
