Patterico's Pontifications


My Email to Trump Lawyer Marc Kasowitz

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 6:29 pm

I just sent the following email to Donald Trump’s lawyer Marc Kasowitz, at his email address


You don’t know me. I don’t know you.

But I believe it is in your best interests and the long-term interest of your firm to resign from your position advising the president re: pending Federal legal matters. No good can come from this and, in fact your name may turn out to be a disparaging historical footnote to the presidency of DJT.

My apologies to “a retired public relations professional in the western United States who asked not to be identified” for stealing his wording.

I was just curious to know whether Mr. Kasowitz chooses to be as bold today as he was yesterday.

  1. My subject line: “Resign now.”

    I am not a paragon of originality.

  2. I thought lawyers believed that everybody deserves legal advise and representation.

  3. Glad to know there’s one place on the internet that I can find Anti-trump material.

  4. Well, the shoes keep dropping, so this is particularly good advice.

    Trying to figure why this Russian spook/lobbyist Akhmetshin’s story doesn’t jibe with Veselnitskaya’s. Were there other people there that we don’t know of?

    Regardless, DT Jr’s latest version of events will have to change once again. What a clown show.

  6. AZ,

    I enjoy poking guys like that.

  7. Trump’s attorney proves that he’s almost as classy as Trump himself. Almost.

  8. If Kasoswitz had left it at the “F*** you”, I would have thoroughly approved.

  9. I sent him one too Patterico. It wasn’t very original either, with the subject line: “Resign Now.”

  10. Consideeibg that akmetchin was the fsb cutout behind the dossier, his nephew works for
    Hank tipover Johnson, who in turn hired one of the awan brothers.

  11. Is one even supposed to release emails to persons outside of a legal process, what do you think thrvpodestas who flack fir sberbank, who were pirates slitting bob barks throat are like.

  12. Brendan Sullivan dud feel like a potted plant in the Stevens trial.

  13. It’s a time-honored tactic, to strip an enemy of his close, loyal advisers and assistants. Whom did this stranger have in mind to replace Kasowitz — Jamie Gorelick maybe?

    But like I said above, if some anonymous person sent me an email telling me to drop a client, my response would be Kasowitz’s initial one.

  14. Down south Florida way, kendall coffee was ptosecutoring some major traffickers, one was found in the roaf after 26 years on the run ,they bribed the jury, he commiserated at a certain establishment and you what happened next

  15. Its a big gornushberger with pepsi

  16. Well he coykd choose mukasey but that would present a problem.

  17. We keep pointing to these behaviors hoping to hear some response besides “So?”.

    But our own behavior repeatedly becomes that well-known definition of insanity.

  18. Rather than drop a prominent client likely to require lots of representation over an extended period and rather fortunately one capable of picking up a series of shockingly hefty tabs, perhaps the best advice for Mr Kasowitz is to delete his ‘Twitter’ account and sober up.

  19. Patron Boggs tried to sandbag chevron for their Ecuadorian client, other outfits spring terrorists from gitmo for their gulf states clientele, you think harsh words aren’t exchanged?

  20. Topical?


    Moreover, the Trump Justice Department, after dismissing former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, subsequently settled a case for Veselnitskaya’s client very much in their favor. That settlement earlier this spring is now highly suspicious, given this week’s revelations. In my personal opinion, it’s the most suspicious act to date in the whole panoply of much-denounced Trump behaviors with regard to Russia, perhaps even moreso than the firing of James Comey.rd

  21. Trump made a splash refusing to take his paycheck but he never pays his own tab.

    . From the Washington Post:

    Another question is who will pay the growing legal fees for the president and administration officials caught up in the Russia inquiries. Some in Trump’s orbit are pushing the Republican National Committee to bear the costs, according to three people with knowledge of the situation, including one who euphemistically described the debate as a “robust discussion.”

    Though the RNC does a have a legal defense fund, it well predates the Russia investigation and is intended to be used for assisting with legal challenges facing the Republican Party, such as a potential election recount.

    The RNC has not made a final decision, in part because the committee is still researching whether the funds could legally be used to help pay legal costs related to Russia. But many within the organization are resisting the effort, believing it would be more appropriate to create a separate legal defense fund for the case.

  22. But like I said above, if some anonymous person sent me an email telling me to drop a client, my response would be Kasowitz’s initial one

    His initial response doesn’t bother me.

    It’s the crap after that, threatening the guy, that I find amusing.

    Since emails like that really upset him, I enjoyed sending him one. It’s a chance for him to practice patience and calm, and thus improve his character.

  23. That would be bhaara who was just punched in the solar plexus but the appeals court re silver.

  24. Its like,he’s hindi for pat fitzgerald

  25. His performance contrasting dsouza or the Clinton foundation makes it clear.

    narciso (c29e78)

  26. So by contrast Solomon dimez,out lurch And the Rhodes road show.

    narciso (c29e78)

  27. Kasowitz is a very good fit for Trump. The position he occupies in the legal community is very similar to the position Trump occupied in the real estate community.

    I do not intend this as a compliment to either man.
