The Advocate cited Ty Cobb, the HRC Foundations director of global engagement, who stated that, Hate is not an American value, and we must expose and fight these individuals and their extremist allies. He continued, This is a destructive group of activists spreading anti-LGBT rhetoric, promoting laws that criminalize LGBT people, and seeking to restrict their speech and those who support them.----The HRC Is Inciting Fear and Hate, Townhall.com ^ | September 20, 2014 | Michael Brown
This is a bizarre incident. Unethical...and incompetent. That place has a private dining room for just these kinds of lunch meetings. So the only thing that makes sense is that it was intentional. Perhaps this is about Mcgahn.
Friend: CIA Officer Not Source on Prisons (and lawyered up) AP/Yahoo News ^ | 4-25-06 | Katherine Shrader Excerpt:"She did not leak any classified information, and she did not have access to the information apparently attributed to her by some government officials," said Washington lawyer Ty Cobb, who is representing veteran CIA analyst Mary McCarthy. Government officials have linked her to the Post's story about the CIA's covert sites in Eastern Europe and elsewhere, used to hold terror suspects. The disclosure of the facilities caused an international clamor last fall because of the legal and ethical issues they raised. McCarthy was fired on Thursday for knowingly disclosing classified information. But Cobb said she hopes to find a way...
Thanks. Is he the one who defended Mary McCarthy?
I cant remember the alias of the DC lawyer here. I am hearing this story is creating quite a stir in the DC area. I would ping him if I knew his alias.
Some of the speculation is that the locked in the safe docs might include the infamous original fire comey letter...and the way to try to get info out there without being disbarred is to let it be overheard
Neither cnn nor nyt have any credibility.
WH lawyers talking in public about Russian probe was no accident just another way of leaking & saying it was an accident. Sessions says he wants to put people on the Box( lie detector) He should start with Cobb and Dowd. lets see what they come up with. Also making McGahan look bad
The NYT forgot to mention Ty Cobb was terribly racist player for the Detroit Tigers back in the day./sarc
As an aside,
I typically typically traveled and ate lunch, and often dinner, in all sorts of restaurants for my whole business career. I can think of a number of them that had ceiling construction that caused sound rebounding so that conversations were carried to another table in odd manners.
One in particular, the Bristol, a seafood restaurant in Overland Park, was notorious for this weird sound ricochet. There was a domed ceiling and you could sit five tables away from another table but both under the edge of this dome and the conversation carried more than if that table was next to you. You could hear criminal problems, outrageous business plans and all sorts of things.
You know, for that very reason I never discuss something in public I would not want others to hear.
Just save yourself the trouble, and stick to talk about things that aren’t sensitive for one reason or another.
I am easily amused, and that acoustical anomaly would be a real hoot for a few minutes.
To tell the truth though, I don’t like hearing others talk about something in public that could cost/embarrass them. Makes me uncomfortable. I just don’t want to hear it.
Kabuki ? If something was heard it was planned to be heard! PLANT
It was uncomfortable, but I didn’t go there weekly or anything like that so I never asked the management what could be done about it.
My wife is outraged about young women and cell phones in public restroom stalls.
I can only imagine what your wife overhears...
In the name of equal rights, some women have gone a long way toward devaluing themselves. It’s a real shame.
The NY Times reporter got a real scoop there.
He saw two of Trump’s lawyers, and the reporter got a bit of the conversation, where the lawyers sounded like they were “colluding” to help Trump. The headline from that reporter and NY Times should be “Trump’s Lawyers in Collusion To Help Trump”.
Wonder if any of those lawyers has any Russian blood in him.
This could be Cobb trying to skirt attorney/client confidentiality by openly discussing his problems within earshot of a reporter.
In any case he ought to be fired for the breach of his core obligation as a lawyer.
He should be disbarred.
Eavesdropping is illegal, shug.
