DOJ Firewalls, Taint Teams Don't Protect 4th, 6th Amendment Rights
By Alan Dershowitz

Many TV pundits are telling viewers not to worry about the government’s intrusion into possible lawyer/client privileged communications between President Trump and his lawyer, since prosecutors won’t get to see or use any privileged material.

Deshaun Watson donates first paycheck to cafeteria employees

Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson got a big payday with his first NFL game check, but then gave it to three female NRG Stadium food service workers who lost everything during Hurricane Harvey. "I wanted to give my first game check to y'all to help y'all out, some type of way," Watson told the workers. Watson, who has a base salary of $465,000, donated a check for $27,353. Watson has been on the receiving end of a similar kindness in the past, as he and his family were once recipients of a house built by Habitat for Humanity.
