    'Donald Trump Jr. claimed attny-client privilege in today before the House Intel Committee re discussions with his father based on the apparent fact an attorney was present.

    Problem: (1) Jr. has no such privilege; (2) Congress does not recognize the privilege even when it exists.

    *update*

    It appears Trump Jr. ... and probably Trump ... have thrown Hope Hicks under the bus ... and who has had to hire an Attorney ...



    Donald Trump Jr. says he communicated with Hope Hicks, not father, on Trump Tower response

    http://www.cnn.com/2017/12/06/politi...nse/index.html


    Donald Trump Jr. told House investigators that he did not communicate directly with his father when confronted with news reports about his June 2016 Trump Tower meeting, according to multiple sources with knowledge of his testimony.

    Instead, Trump Jr. said he was speaking to White House aide Hope Hicks about how to respond to the reports.


    He said President Donald Trump, according to the sources, was debating between a longer and a shorter statement while the President and Hicks were aboard Air Force One.

    Hicks was aboard Air Force One and was speaking with Trump while the statement was being crafted.

    So, which one was the attorney in the attorney client talks?

    The 8 years prior this was considered the normal course of action. Why is it a big deal now?

    That makes more sense than laying out a case about how innocent you are then hiding behind the 5th amendment when asked any questions.
