So we hear today about Donald Trump's replacement of his longstanding (for him) lawyer Ty Cobb with a guy named Emmet Flood.
Don't recognize that name? I must admit that it rang only the faintest of bells to me, but Emmet Flood is a guy who is almost entirely known for having defended Bill Clinton during the Republican impeachment nonsense.
I've already heard all sorts of speculation from the as-usual willingly clueless mainstream press about what this means. What I haven't heard from anyone, of course, is this simple fact: If you expect to be tried for burglary, you don't hire a corporate attorney, and if you need to have someone write a real estate contract, you don't hire a divorce lawyer. The fact that Trump is hiring a lawyer known for defending people being impeached says it all.
Only Donald Trump really knows what he has done, and why he did it. The fact that he is hiring Emmet Flood is a huge clue about where he thinks this is all going, and as far as I am concerned, is a massive reveal of Trump's consciousness of his own guilt.
