    Re: item one, don’t forget the crazy-pants reasoning of the dissenting judge, a Trump-appointed Federalist Society ideological hack (and yes, there’s a certain degree of redundancy in that description). It wasn’t quite l’etat, c’est Trump, but I think that was only because she knew Trump doesn’t understand French.

    The coup de grace of Rudy being under investigation is that all this time, his wife has him in court trying to take half of all that money he’s been chasing for the last couple of decades. And even *she* has him dead to rights on shenanigans. I bet he strokes out before Trump does.

So I yanked the post after about five minutes when I couldn’t get the problem fixed as it made no sense as snark or anything else without Guilfoyle’s picture.

    @Adam L Silverman:

    It’s hard for public figures to win when the false statements were published by someone who was trying to tell the truth, but when the other person is consciously lying, it’s a different story. Something like the failed Harris smear, where it turns out they hired the guy and he thought he was auditioning for a show, actually wouldn’t be too hard to win if you were so inclined, since it certainly qualifies as reckless disregard of the truth to hire someone to lie for you. On the other hand, if you’re Harris or Warren or Pelosi or Schiff, you probably just want to ignore them or laugh at them instead of suing even if you would win – it will work out better for you.

    Mentioned earlier in a thread …

    (NYT) Federal prosecutors in Manhattan are investigating whether President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani broke lobbying laws in his dealings in Ukraine, according to two people familiar with the inquiry.

    The investigators are examining Mr. Giuliani’s efforts to undermine the American ambassador to Ukraine, Marie L. Yovanovitch, one of the people said. … Federal law requires American citizens to disclose to the Justice Department any contacts with the government or media in the United States at the direction or request of foreign politicians or government officials, regardless of whether they pay for the representation. Law enforcement officials have made clear in recent years that covert foreign influence is as great a threat to the country as spies trying to steal government secrets.

    … Mr. Giuliani … now finds himself under scrutiny from the same United States attorney’s office he led in the 1980s,

    It was unclear how far the investigation has progressed, and there was no indication that prosecutors in Manhattan have decided to file additional charges in the case. … Mr. Giuliani said that federal prosecutors had no grounds to charge him with foreign lobbying disclosure violations because he said he was acting on behalf of Mr. Trump, not the Ukrainian prosecutor, Yuriy Lutsenko, when he collected the information on Ms. Yovanovitch and the others and relayed it to the American government and the news media.

    What did I do?
    @Chetan Murthy:

    Husband: Darling, is there something wrong?
    Wife: Why no, dear; why do you ask?
    Husband: You moved.

    That reminds me of a similar joke.

    A wife is telling friends all about her wedding 25 years after the fact. She turns to her husband and asks, “You love me still, don’t you dear?”

    The husband replies, “Honey, that’s the only way I love you.”

    Heard that on a Little House on the Prairie episode once. Go figure. If you have Amazon Prime, the whole series is up

    @frosty: Some of the small cities in central PA are pretty cool. I like Carlisle and Lancaster a lot, and you really have to go to Troeg’s in Hershey to drink the best beer in America.

    All of these decisions are just going to get reversed by the Supreme Court, probably 5-4.

    @Millard Filmore: Showing you ain’t from anywhere near here – it’s pronounced “bee-dub-yi” & occasionally “bee-dub-yi-marshall” (NB a good deal more often than anyone left of Stephen “Reinhard Heydrich’s Mini-Me” Miller calls Washington National “Reagan”).

    @Cheryl Rofer: Sure they’ll appeal the decisions, ALL of them, right up to the Supreme Court. The timing could be interesting, though–the Court might be in the position of hearing some of them (or even deciding whether to grant cert for some of them) in the midst of a growing torrent of publicity about the Presidential/Congressional Crime Syndicate’s activity. If our talking anus succeeds in taking the Federalist Society down with him (and investigations into where their money comes from, MIGHT) then our conservative “Justices” might be thinking somewhat differently about “legacy” than they are now. Random thought–dunno about you, but I’m tired of living in “interesting times” …..

    I watched a discussion of this last night (on Maddow? Don’t recall). According to Stephen Miller, they’re not concerned about the garbage arguments they’re putting forth or the fact that they’re losing in the lower courts. Their goal is to appeal to the USSC, which will given them the wins.

    There was some push back on this–would Roberts want to invest even more power in the executive branch? Counting on him for the sanity vote seems a pretty bad bet, but it may be all we have for now.
