‘Great lawyer!’ Trump praises Michael Flynn’s new Mueller-hating attorney — a frequent Fox News guest

Published

on

President Donald Trump praised his disgraced national security adviser Michael Flynn’s new attorney — a staunch critic of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

Flynn, a retired U.S. Army general and a Trump campaign adviser, agreed to cooperate with Mueller as part of a guilty plea for lying to FBI investigators about his discussions of sanctions with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak before Trump’s inauguration.

He recently fired his attorneys, as he awaits sentencing, and hired former prosecutor Sidney Powell — a frequent Fox News guest who has described Mueller’s team as “creeps on a mission” and urged Flynn to withdraw his guilty plea.

Legal experts have speculated that Flynn may be planning to withdraw his guilty plea or fishing for a presidential pardon.

Trump’s former attorney John Dowd left a recently released voice mail with Flynn’s attorney in November 2017, days before his guilty plea, signaling the possibility of a pardon and asking for information about his cooperation with the investigation.

It’s not clear what prompted the president’s tweet about Powell, who was mentioned the previous evening on Fox New host Sean Hannity’s show.

Trump is ‘a soulless man with a broken mind’: George Conway calls out his wife’s boss in scathing op-ed

Published

on

George Conway, the prominent Republican attorney married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, blasted his wife's boss in a new Washington Post op-ed published online on Friday evening.

"Until three brief months ago, President Trump never faced a serious crisis, at least one not of his own making. But now he has faced two, and is failing two, in short order: the covid-19 pandemic, with its concomitant economic devastation; and now social unrest, and rioting, stemming from the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody," Conway wrote. "Lacking in humanity, Trump has had no idea how to handle either one."
