George Snuffleupagus, the ABC News TV host with the hair, is breaking a hot scoop, which is weird because isn't his job just to sit there and look pretty and also didn't he just get back from Singapore? Oh, our silly questions! The point is that according to Snuffleupagus's sources, idiot Michael Cohen, the worst lawyer in America, the fixer who calls his boss "MIS-TURRRRR TWUMP," ain't got no lawyers anymore! That's right, they have all chosen to call in sick for the rest of Michael Cohen's case, and after that they are washing their cat, because who in their right mind would want to represent that idiot, who is probably going to jail for the rest of his natural life?

As attorneys for Michael Cohen rush to meet Judge Kimba Wood's Friday deadline to complete a privilege review of over 3.7 million documents seized in the April 9 raids of Cohen's New York properties and law office, a source representing this matter has disclosed to ABC News that the law firm handling the case for Cohen is not expected to represent him going forward.

Hahahahahahaha, couldn't have happened to a dumber guy who went to a worse law school. If you are wondering if this means that a very wonderful thing is probably going to happen very soon, you may be wondering correctly!

Cohen, now with no legal representation, is likely to cooperate with federal prosecutors in New York, sources said. This development, which is believed to be imminent, will likely hit the White House, family members, staffers and counsels hard.

OK, so that is what George Snuffleupagus's source says.

We hate to piss on your Frosted Flakes right now, but the Wall Street Journal says hey, not so fast, Snuffleupagus, because they have a wildly different interpretation of the same information. According to WSJ, Cohen's lawyers, Stephen Ryan, Todd Harrison "and others" from McDermott, Will & Emery LLP will officially quit after they are done going through the 3.7 million documents the FBI seized from Cohen to make sure they're not full of attorney-client privilege. Based on the batch that's been released so far, and the scientific fact that MICHAEL COHEN ISN'T A REAL LAWYER, that should take approximately 12 more minutes.

WSJ also doesn't say Cohen is probably about to flip, but that he's actively searching for new lawyers dumb enough to sully their professional reputations by taking him on as a client:

Mr. Cohen doesn't yet have a replacement law firm but is searching for a federal criminal lawyer in New York, people familiar with the matter said. Mr. Cohen wants to hire a lawyer with close ties to the Manhattan U.S. attorney's office, the people said.

Mr. Cohen hasn't yet decided whether he will cooperate with prosecutors in the case, according to one of those people.

God, Michael Cohen, you stinky idiot. Just fucking flip on your old boss MIS-TURRR TWUMP. He doesn't actually love you, because what he wants right now is a "Roy Cohn" type figure, and Roy Cohn, dead bastard who lives in hell that he is, was way smarter than you.

Also, he's only going to pardon you if it personally benefits him.

And if he pardons you, you will lose your rights to plead the Fifth and it'll be much easier for the mean FBI to make you spill your guts about MIS-TURRRR TWUMP anyway.

Oh well, Michael Cohen gonna do what Michael Cohen gonna do, because he's a very stupid and pathetic man.

Anything to add, Michael Avenatti?

Earlier this week, the Ecuadorian embassy in the UK told Julian Assange that it would evict him if he didn't stop being a slob and start taking care of his cat. Assange responded today by announcing he is taking legal action and claiming Ecuador violated his human rights by making him do his own laundry and pay rent. (He is reminding us of THIS awesome dude, who sued his parents for refusing to live anymore with a dude as awesome as he.) Pretty soon they're going to tell him to do things like "get a job" and "move out." GAWD, parents and embassies offering asylum to scumbag freeloaders are just the worst!

The bat signal has gone out in Trumpland, and the vampires are obediently flying in formation. This Khashoggi murder story isn't going away, but here in US Amurika we got bombs to sell. So the GOP Brain Trust called an emergency meeting and came up with A PLAN. What if Jamal Khashoggi was a terrorist who deserved to be beaten, dismembered with a bone saw, and have his body repatriated to Saudi Arabia in pieces distributed among his killers' luggage? Can Republicans really have sunk that far?

YES, THEY CAN. The Washington Post reports,

In recent days, a cadre of conservative House Republicans allied with Trump has been privately exchanging articles from right-wing outlets that fuel suspicion of Khashoggi, highlighting his association with the Muslim Brotherhood in his youth and raising conspiratorial questions about his work decades ago as an embedded reporter covering Osama bin Laden, according to four GOP officials involved in the discussions who were not authorized to speak publicly.

Those aspersions — which many lawmakers have been wary of stating publicly because of the political risks of doing so — have begun to flare into public view as conservative media outlets have amplified the claims, which are aimed in part at protecting Trump as he works to preserve the U.S.-Saudi relationship and avoid confronting the Saudis on human rights.

Wow, that's pretty fuckin' evil, even by the debased standards of today's GOP! But if that's what it takes to protect Trump and Kush, Fox is here to oblige. Here's Harris Faulkner on the curvy couch wondering if maybe Jared Kushner's BFF Mohammed bin Bonesaw even has time to order the murder of a dissident reporter since, "He's dealing with a whole host of other issues over there." He's probably too busy, like, washing his manly beard to murder people outside Saudi Arabia, right?
