I am back from CPAC! I have somehow survived this assault on all of my senses, and I mean all of them.

Wow, I have a bunch of stories from CPAC, none of which I can tell you. Here's my problem: as you know, I'm a lawyer; I tend to keep private anything anybody tells me or anything I'm working on, except when it gets out in public. All my good stories are confidential. I can't tell you any of it. That's important because lawyers have to be able to give advice, get information from their clients, and why am I telling you all of this? Because the Democrats are having a giant Jeffrey Toobin Zoom festival over the fact that John Eastman, a lawyer for former President Donald Trump, took the 5th a bunch of times, and they are trying to break attorney-client privilege.
