#2 Evven people who aren't lawyers know that rule one is "Never ask a question you don't already know the answer to." Also, "Never open a can of worms. You will need a much bigger can to re-can them."

#5 One called it "graymail," a legal defense tactic that’s tantamount to blackmail and has since been outlawed

Outlawed, huh? You mean defense by facts and discovery? I know he doesn't get teh actual discovery he would in a criminal case, but he can certainly make statements and requests they'll have to deny/turn down "for security reasons", such as "how many FBI agents were undercover fomenting the disruption? I hear at least 50!"

#10 When I heard he had been indicted for "contempt of Congress", I thought "If they could read my mind, I would be in BIG trouble".
