Donald Trump - Trump Adds Clinton Impeachment Lawyer, Bracing for a Fight on Multiple Fronts

ezs note:  Here's a priceless gem from the article by Apuzzo and Schmidt in The New York Times:  

Mr. Flood is arriving from the Washington law firm Williams & Connolly, which specializes in trial work, particularly in high-profile cases. Among its clients are Hillary Clinton, who relied on the firm during the F.B.I. investigation into her use of a private email server.  (italics mine)

To my conservative friends:  Uh, when he was campaigning, didn't Trump say he would never sully his fingers the same way 'Crooked Hillary' did?  Oh, well, so it goes.  And so Trump lies, lies, lies.
