Jack McCoy never saw this coming.

Yet one more reason I wish Law and Order were still on the air, "ripping stories from the headlines" like this one.

Maybe it's me - okay, it's definitely me - but I'm positive that if I were up on 24 counts of law-breaking related to various misdeeds that took place while I held a pretty responsible public position in government, the last thing on my mind would be "tweeting" everyday about the hours I spent in Court.

The question is: are the tweets protected? Can the prosecution use them? Isn't this akin to trying your case in the court of public opinion?

Adam Schiff would never stand for it. And he'd never, ever use the word Tweet.

Hope you enjoy today's column.
