Russia Furious As U.S. Navy Destroyer Approaches Syria Without Notification
"Moreover, US President Donald Trump said that he would think about the missile attack on Syria despite any resolutions at the UN Security Council. All this smells of something are outside the framework of universally recognised international norms," Shamanov added...

Hilarity ensues.

However, after yesterday news that the office of Trump's personal lawyer was raided by the FBI and that attorney-client privilege between Trump and Cohen may be compromised, it now appears that in a desperate diversion attempt from his domestic troubles, a military response against Syria by Trump is now inevitable...

That Trump will declare war and condemn all of us to death to defend his position and ego is a given. What is incorrect is the assertion "that attorney-client privilege between Trump and Cohen may be compromised." It is most emphatically NOT.

Note that, according to the American Bar Association, conversations between attorney and client when there is reason to suspect both are involved in an ongoing criminal activity are NOT actually protected by law and are subject to investigation. It's called the Crime-Fraud Exception, which says: The legal community does not deem discussions concerning future wrongdoings, such as fraud, that occur during an attorney-client communications worthy of protection. While the practice of law encourages full and frank communications between the attorney and client, ONLY communications concerning past wrongdoings are protected.

Make of that what you will.


Surly,

I didn't know about the Crime-Fraud Exception. Thanks for the info.   


Webster Tarpley has an interesting take on what Trump's reaction will be when he finds his family jewels in a vice grip. Tarpley believes Trump is a coward and will fold under any real pressure, NOT from Russia, but from the Pentagon war lovers that surround him.

That, of course, ends up resulting in more warlike moves, regardless of what Trump wants to do to distract we-the-people.


All that said, I believe the war lovers at the Pentagon are more rational than Trump. Their whole SCAM (that began with 911) is OPERATION ENDURING MEGA-PENTAGON BUDGET. So, they always want some level of war excuse going on that continues to fleece us on behalf of weapons manufacturers, but, is never on the scale that actually would require all-out war.

The problem with that too clever by a half calculation is that constant saber rattling is precisely what has ALWAYS triggered massive conflicts in the past.

Many will disagree with me on this, but I am certain that Trump will be removed from office by hook or by crook if he does not do what the M.I.C. wants him to do. Trump, though the trumpers were fooled into thinking he was an "outsider", IS a creature of the Deep State.

These creatures are not always obedient to their masters in our disguised military dictatorship. The moment they step out of line, a "lone nut" shows up. Nobody wants to talk about it, but that is precisely how they "reined in" Reagan in when he started making noises the Bush powers that be did not like.   

Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. Pr. 13:12
