Defending Trump (kind of)

   
  The NY Times editorializing against President Trump's complaints against FBI agents raiding his lawyer's home and office, calling it privileged by the lawyer/client relationship:

“One might ask, if this is all a big witch hunt and Mr. Trump has nothing illegal or untoward to hide, why does he care about the privilege in the first place?” the editorial board wrote. “The answer, of course, is that he has a lot to hide.”

      But of course that is flawed logic....especially from a newspaper that should somewhere presume innocence? Would the paper allow those agents to go through their files and homes, since after all, they have done "nothing illegal or untoward"?

Yes, he has plenty to hide. Watch Lawrence O'Donnell or Rachel Maddow any night of the week.
