  1. I can think of some other scam lawyers who should be in jail.
    I won’t mention names but their initials are Hillary Clinton and Barrak Obama.

  2. So government lawyers are insisting that making shite up, then suing plebes for millions of dollars because you insist they’ve violated what you just made up, is wrong? A crime, even? Where’s the “Stop! I’m gonna pee!” baby?
