Putin could, perhaps, share with him some old Russian wisdom, such as "Silent can pass for smart".

We have a similar one attributed to Abraham Lincoln: "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt."

Subpoena for Trump tax returns heading back to Supreme Court after President dealt another setback

I think the headline is somewhat misleading. It is true that the resounding decision of the Court of Appeals rejecting Trump's latest arguments for why the New York District Attorney's subpoena for his tax records and other financial documents should not be enforced is temporarily stayed to give his lawyers the opportunity to ask the high court to review the decision and grant a further stay, but it is by no means guaranteed that the SCOTUS will agree to do so. Normally, I would say that there is almost no chance that they would, as his legal arguments are that bad. But given the politics of the matter, they might. It is most likely up to Chief Justice Roberts, as it would require 5 votes to grant a stay (though only four to grant review) and Barrett is not yet on the court and so can't vote on this.
