Oh, did he actually deny links beforehand? :O
He didn't deny (until his name got revealed anyway), he never even mentioned any links beforehand.
Which is to say he did deny the connection, once it got called out :P He's apparently been steadily walking back from that denial, too. The stumbling backtracking is a thing.

Fun thing is, from what I've been noticing of chatter, it's possible (if perhaps unlikely) that hannity's reaction will itself void any attorney/client privilege that may have existed.

It certainly does sound like he's waiving any client-attorney privilege. He's not explictly saying he's waiving such privileges, but him straight out saying that he never retained or hired him definetly sounds like it'd fit the legal definition of waiving such privileges.

Good! No matter where you fall on the immigration issue the idea that anyone can be deported on a literal whim should make you uncomfortable.

The SCOTUS Backstab is a political move as old as...SCOTUS, really.

There's probably more conspiracies flying around over that than there are bats in a bat cave.

Why do bad things happen to Sean Hannity?

Looks like she decided herself to stop medical treatment. COPD was a factor.

Respected by a lot of people, she was.

Thread seems quiet. Is no one else shocked or outraged by the average-ness of Tump's hands? Has apathy amongst the American people reached the point that no one cares about the length of their president's digits?

I think it's just that none of the current news is really amenable to comment. People have learned to ignore the random noises coming from the White House, it having been conclusively demonstrated that they bear no particular relationship to reality. No one therefore feels especially driven to comment on them, much less react to them. Without that, there is nothing for Congress to do but campaign and lie about their prospects in November, which isn't especially new or interesting, and local government just keeps running along party lines. Nothing moves the needle anymore.

Yeah, the Mueller investigation grinds on, sheneinighans keep happening with Stormy Daniels, things are continuing being twisty with Cohen, now Cohen's third client is apparently Sean Hannity of all people, Trump keeps passively-aggressively threatening to fire Mueller, what's new.

Most entertaining things I could find was just a couple Trump tweets. One where he wrote a kinda disjointed sentence about immigration, and now people are misunderstanding his use of the word "breeding" (at least I hope it's a misunderstanding), and another one where he called himself "more a Spy{sic} than [Andrew Brunson] is", which I thought was funny.

Also he seems to think that they've started building The Wall in San Diego, which they haven't. But that's okay, we all make mistakes.

He said 'breeding concept'. I can't help but wonder if he meant 'breeding contempt', but he usually deletes typos, so....

Judging from the rest of the tweet, I think he was talking about the concept of sanctuary cities, and how they were "crime infested and -breeding". As in, infested by crime and also breeding more crime.

I used to translate non-native and drunken posts for the benefit of the other members of an old gaming forum that I was unfortunately a part of many years ago. As such, I'm conversationally fluent in Stupid.
