lock her up
Well, I mean she slept her way to the top so what else can we expect for her behavior?
There is nothing wrong with this. She didn’t take any money from a law firm. She took money from some lawyers who work at that firm. Big law firms like K&E have thousands of lawyers throughout the world. It’s silly to argue that every lawyer at the firm is somehow tainted by one client. My firm is similar in size to K&E and it also represents some unsavory clients. I have no control over that and it would be foolish to argue that my contributions to Democratic candidates (including Harris) are tainted by those clients.
If she "blasted" the law firm (or lawyers) who gave her a contribution, doesn't that signify her independence?
Imagine she'd come out minimizing Epstein's behavior, or arguing he should get bail. That would be the polar opposite, and it would look like she was simply saying what her lawyer funders approved of. Wouldn't that be the kind of speech one should be concerned with?
Here's another hypothetical, which some might relate to better:
What if Hillary had come out strongly in favor of much stricter regulation of banks and financial institutions, after giving her speech to Wall Street?
Politician being a politician. Every time I meet one, I attempt to see how far I can throw 'em. You know the saying about trusting someone as far you you can throw 'em. There has been only ONE politician I could trust more than my own kids, but sadly he's gone. We were standing next to a cliff.
yeah, keep telling yourself that. by all means overlook
***Kamala Harris called on top Justice Department officials to recuse themselves from any matter related to Jeffrey Epstein last Tuesday****
Unbelievable, reckless, misguided comment, oh wait you’re a Trump person.
Even child abusers deserve lawyers. That’s one of our principles.
look at post 6
The top officials needed to recuse because they gave Epstein a dodgy deal...
You have any proof that these specific lawyers out of the 2,200 lawyers Kirkland and Ellis employs in 15 cities around the world are actually working on the Epstein case in any manner whatsoever?
Why, no you don't.
yeah I am sure there is no conflict of interest at all
That's about as stupid as saying I shouldn't deal with McDonalds in Los Angeles because a McDonalds in New York was caught abusing their staff members. I'm sure they're somehow connected.
yeah, you are overlooking post 6 as well.
Yeah, GDC make up part of our counsel. I think they employ something like 1,500 employees. I know GDC has represented nasty pieces of work and still do. Still going to use them. They did turn down the White House and Trump, though.
Edit: Sorry, you're an attorney? But you seem so normal and sane...
What law did she break to be locked up? As I said, a reckless comment.
Imagine if Bush had been sent to The Hague for war crimes. And that then Obama hadn’t invaded Libya.
Then what would the response have been when Gadaffi committed genocide in Benghazi?
Woah, slow down here a bit.
If what she did is Ok, then why is Chic-fil-a hammered because of who the founding family donates their money to?
Yeah. Because Kamala Harris is the unethical one you all should be so worried about and spreading more lies about.
I genuinely do not understand this comment. The Cathy family own Chick-Fil-A (including all of the restaurants). If Messers Kirkland and Ellis were still alive and were the only equity partners of Kirkland & Ellis, then I do think that it would be reasonable to complain about a candidate taking money from them and simultaneously complaining about the firm, but that is not the case here. The partners who donated to Harris are just a couple of roughly a thousand partners in the firm. The comparable fast food chain analogy would be if Harris took money from one McDonald’s franchisee and criticized something done by some other McDonald’s franchisees, which would be perfectly reasonable.
Guilty by association?
Could you clarify how this relates to Harris? Thanks.
Some thoughts unrelated to Harris unless you can connect the dots for me:
W lied (non-existent WMDs) to get us to invade another country run by a dictatorship.
Obama chose military intervention in a dictatorship because Qaddafi was cracking down on peaceful protestors part of the Arab Spring movement, but not a W style invasion.
Does the world view a country run by a dictatorship as a sovereign country?
It doesn’t. The reply was aimed at JK who seems to think everyone should be tried for war crimes.
If the company owns all of the restaurants, who are these 1,000's of franchisees I keep reading about?
Bottom line is if the owners/partners/employees of any business/firm want to donate personal funds to a cause, then it shouldn't matter. This goes for both liberal and conservative donors.
1. that would be AWESOME
2. that should be up to his people.
