Allan, perhaps this comment is slightly off topic, but I would really like your advice on this somewhat related question:

I saw the Rudy G. headline where Rudy, as DT’s lawyer and in response to the suggestion that Michael Cohen administered a sexual slush-fund, Rudy volunteered that there might well have been several other women whom Cohen paid off to keep silent on claims that DT had sex with them.

Maybe it’s just me. Maybe I don’t see the whole picture. Perhaps I’m just not clever enough to comprehend Rudy’s brilliant, master plan. Maybe I’m just admitting my own intellectual inadequacies here, but in my own simple-minded way, Rudy seems to me to be doing DT somewhat more harm than good.

I say, “somewhat” in the same way that I might say that a Force 5 hurricane bearing down on Miami might be somewhat of an inconvenience.

So, tell me, am I wrong here? Am I just missing the subtleties of the situation or is DT using Rudy Giuliani as his lawyer somewhat equivalent to jumping up and down on a trampoline while holding on to a gallon jug of nitroglycerin?

Can you set me straight on all this?

Thanks for helping me out here — David Grace
