Trump's Lawyer sends a Cease & Desist letter to Bannon
http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/trump-attorney-sends-bannon-cease-desist-letter-disparaging/story?id=52128555

"Lawyers on behalf of President Donald Trump sent a letter Wednesday night to former White House Chief Strategist Stephen Bannon demanding he refrain from making disparaging comments against the president and his family."


Ummm, can The Donald BE as stupid as to think commanding Bannon to shut his mouth is going to make that book disappear?

Excerpt from the link above:
"Trump attorney Charles J. Harder of the firm Harder Mirell & Abrams LLP, said in a statement, "This law firm represents President Donald J. Trump and Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. On behalf of our clients, legal notice was issued today to Stephen K. Bannon, that his actions of communicating with author Michael Wolff regarding an upcoming book give rise to numerous legal claims including defamation by libel and slander, and breach of his written confidentiality and non-disparagement agreement with our clients. Legal action is imminent." "


Uhhh, yes it is. But not the legal action you think!

John Schindler (20Commitee on Twitter) has All. But. Declared. in writing that Bannon(or Whiskey Steve, as he referred to him) was acting as a mole in the WH.


Personally, I find it hard to believe that that, that...that "man" was capable of working the DT insiders to give up the goods, and not an integral part of the sh#t show, but apparently it is so. Maybe he was screwed, and "politely asked" by the FBI to do them a favor ad help with this little problem called Donald Trump." But whatever the case - this seems to be the finger taken out of the leaking dyke that will FINALLY get the Trump Loyalists to "GET IT."

I mean really, now. If even STEVE BANNON has turned on the Trumps like a hyena on a crippled newborn Caribou, I don't know how any "just regular GOPer" can remain bolstering the Trumps.


My god - what a strange, strange year it has been. And it's only day THREE!

Nope you don't get it. ;) Bannon was, is and always will be a dislikable sonofabitch. That he would turn on his master is hardly surprising. I don't understand why you think this is any different than any other hyena biting the hand that fed it? Just another brick in the wall.

But if he signed the non-disclosure and anti-defamatory contracts I think he and any publisher will definitely have a challenge on their hands.

If the excerpts from the book are true, trump will not seek reelection. If he does(to massage his ego), look for a divorce from Melania.

How do you think the Discovery process is going to go on that suit? I guess that going forward with it will prove one of two things beyond any doubt. Either 1) Donald Trump is innocent(as claimed), or 2)Donald Trump's balloon has seriously snapped its tether to reality.


Also, IF the damned near claim he was moled up is true, I think the suit against Bannon will be a bit far down on the "to do" list for the Trump legal eagles(or vultures, depending on your perspective).

Also, the publisher signed no such agreement. Book is set to come out on Tuesday, 1/9. Only five days away, and includes a weekend. But, there'e supposed to be a web drop today. Maybe it's already come, though I don't see it when I Google. I'm pretty sure it would be there.

His legal eagles have told publisher "STOP THE PRESSES!"

Problem is - the book has already been placed into the hands of public. There is really no way to stop every salicious detail to come out now. None.

May be that the book never comes out in numbers, although I have the feeling that it will, but it only takes one. And that one is out there, among the early release numbers.

Yeah - If Callie wrote a textbook on Creepsters, Steve Bannon's image would be the defining one - but (IF it is true he was sent in as the canary in the coal mine) he's being handled. You play with politics and world class crime, they're gonna make you walk the plank when they catch up to you. Most don't have the sack to refuse. They walk the plank, dance the dance, drink each night to run, run, run, as fast as they can. But every morning they wake up to the knowledge they are still on that plank; that their nightmare existence is not just a bad dream.

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Jeff Sessions is going after legalized marijuana. Sessions is rescinding a policy that had let legalized marijuana flourish without federal intervention across the country.
That's according to two people with direct knowledge of the decision. They were not allowed to publicly discuss it before an announcement expected Thursday and spoke on condition of anonymity.
The move will leave it to U.S. attorneys where pot is legal to decide whether to aggressively enforce federal marijuana law. The move likely will add to confusion about whether it's OK to grow, buy or use marijuana in states where it's legal, since long-standing federal law prohibits it.
The decision comes days after California began selling recreational marijuana.
Sessions compares marijuana to heroin and blames it for spikes in violence.

$e$$ions is clueless,
he wants to keep cannabis a schedule 1 controlled substance.

Bernie cares...

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) doubled down on his opposition to enforcing federal marijuana laws on Thursday, noting that the substance is less dangerous than heroin and that states should move toward decriminalizing it.
Sanders called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to reverse an expected decision rolling back an Obama-era policy giving states leeway to legalize recreational marijuana use.
"Marijuana is not the same as heroin. No one who has seriously studied the issue believes that marijuana should be classified as a Schedule 1 drug beside killer drugs like heroin," Sanders said in a statement.
"Quite the contrary. We should allow states the right to move toward the decriminalization of marijuana, not reverse the progress that has been made in recent years," he added.

Hard to imagine that publicly trying to stop the book from being published is a good PR move. Makes tRump and his clown car look even more desperate. Either he just won't listen to his advisers, or they are just as clueless has he is.

It will probably ensure yuuge sales.

About decriminalization of marijuana? Prolly.

About states’ rights per se? Prolly not.

It's about inconsistency. Selective disregard of federal laws, as it suits the sitting President..

To a great extent the whole states rights theory is made up by the right wing to push their own agenda, as is convenient. There is no actual broad "stares rights" spelled out in the Constitution.

Sanders has been in Congress a hell of a long time. He was there when Democrats ran the show, and he was there when Republicans ran the show.

When did Sanders ever introduce legislation to repeal the Federal marijuana laws?
