Top lawyers won't work for Trump

The clown show continues:

As President Trump heads into one of the most critical phases of the special counsel’s investigation, his personal legal team has shrunk to essentially just one member, and he is struggling to find any top lawyers willing to represent him.

Working for a president is usually seen as a dream job. But leading white-collar lawyers in Washington and New York have repeatedly spurned overtures to take over the defense of Mr. Trump, a mercurial client who often ignores his advisers’ guidance. In some cases, lawyers’ firms have blocked any talks, fearing a backlash that would hurt business.

The president lost two lawyers in just the past four days, including one who had been on board for less than a week.

It's pretty difficult to represent a pathological liar who turns on anyone who doesn't stroke his ego and tell him what he wants to hear

But Trump said all the top firms want to work for him....

Trump wouldn't lie... would he?

I'm not surprised.

Trump would be a nightmare client to take on, esp. for such a high-stakes case. For a lawyer to be most effective in defending their client, the client has to 1) be honest with the lawyer 2) actually listen to the advice given. Trump clearly does not give a fuck what his advisors say most of the time, and lies all the time.

 

He would have such an easier time with, well, everything, if he simply stopped tweeting. He'd still be facing a hostile press and obstructionist dems, but his own words would not be used as legal ammo against him as much as they are now.

 

Not related to the Mueller probe, but even with some of his EO and legislation he's signed, he's faced legal pushback because of the dumb shit he's tweeted.

 

He is his own worst enemy.

You know the difference between not wanting to, and conflicts of interest, right moron?

OMG! OMG! OMG!

lol. Fucking snowflakes.

You mean money doesn’t talk in this case?

How many top lawyers with DOJ experience haven’t touched base with Bob Mueller? That dude has been floating around the Justice Department for 40 years.

Think you are being angry and impulsive.


I don't think you understand how conflicts work. If the bar was as low as you seem to think it is nobody could find legal representation.

mihow -

Sources say 

You don't even have to rely on sources.

 

Just look at what is left of his legal team pertaining to the special counsel's investigation-- it's a dude who specializes in religious freedom litigation. Trump has publicly said he'd be open to an interview with Mueller....do you really think any lawyer would want to represent him when Trump would likely perjure himself within minutes of sitting down?


Last spring Trump had Ty Cobb and John Dowd heading his legal team. Dowd is gone and I wouldn't be shocked if Cobb bounced too.

 

Trump has his personal lawyers, yes, but they are dealing with issues like the Stormy Daniels debacle and that Michael Wolff book; not the Russia investigation.

 

Any other president in Trump's position would be insulated with a half dozen lawyers, probably double that. They'd have attorneys specifically to deal with media inquiries, specifically to deal with x, y, z as it relates to the investigation.

Hillary Clinton, as an example, had a small army of lawyers handling her email investigation with the FBI.

Nobody wants to represent Trump because he's a shit client. It has nothing to do with lawyers who have 'touched base with Bob Mueller'.

Pretty much all of Trump's current/former staff who have been part of the Russia investigation have managed to hire top DC lawyers and firms to rep them.

Many of these lawyers and firms have interacted with Mueller over the years, either in his capacty as a federal employee or when Mueller was working @ WilmerHale. Yet they all have no problem representing literally everyone in the Russia probe except for Trump.

 

Bannon and Priebus are repped by the same lawyer, who is a former federal prosecutor.

Kushner is repped by Abbe Lowell, who has managed to keep Bobby Menendez (D- NJ) out of federal prison.

Pence retained a top lawyer specializing in white collar crime who is also a former US attorney.

Hope Hicks' lawyer is a former US attorney who previously worked for the DOJ.

Sean Spicer hired a prominent DC lawyer who is known for helping clients through congressional investigations.

I don’t think you are happy with your life, you’re infatuated with something that has zero to do with your life for the past 16 months and each day you are either expressing faux outrage or celebrating a negative quote some opinion journalist-had about Trump.

Its not healthy for a grown man to spend so much time and effort on something that gives him no meaning whatsoever, unless the meaning of life is being a partisan hack who cries on the internet all day long because his team last an election 2 years ago. 

Nice deflection lol.

Does he even need a bunch of lawyers for the Russian investigation shit?

No deflection, that bitch never elaborates with any facts and his first response after his copy and paste from an article is always “you don’t understand”. 

We have 25 year old men who have never kissed a chick posting about Trump 6 hours a day, its fn strange.

you seem really happy with your life there gramps

 

you're a real ray of sunshine

You left off “My opinion is.....” then went on to compare congressional investigations to DOJ cases.

Now go flail your queer arms in outrage.

Yes, my OPINION is that Trump would be an awful client. The FACTS I presented about everyone else in the Russia probe retaining top DC law firms is irrefutable.

 

You left out that you have absolutely zero idea how conflict of interest works, as you literally made up a nonensical excuse for why no top DC law firm wants to represent Trump.

Why are you speaking of matters obviously well above your pay grade and level of education?

Stop being such a faggot.

"How many top lawyers with DOJ experience haven't touched base with Bob Mueller? That dude has been floating around the Justice Department for 40 years."

That's not how our conflicts rules work.

Good lord you fumbled before the end zone and still spiked the ball. Lol

You posted attorneys who represent his administration, why list the attorneys that have turned him down so far outside of the 2 from Saturday. 

Nobody wants to work with him, who are they?

None of the attorneys I listed represent the Trump administration. Good lord you are a retard. Lol

Every current and former Trump Admininistration member I mentioned, including VP Pence, has hired their own personal outside legal counsel that has nothing to do with the administration.

These attorneys are acting as personal outside representation for their clients. They have zero attorney-client relationship with the Trump Administration or the president.

The only lawyers who "represent the administration" are Don McGahn and Ty Cobb, as they are White House counsel.

And even then, McGahn oversees a wide range of legal issues pertaining to the executive branch beyond Rusia and Cobb's job is to protect the office of the presidency and ensure Trump's day-to-day isn't unduly disrupted by Mueller's probe; not defend Trump as an individual under investigation.

 

So the question is why does literally everyone else in the Trump orbit have top-flight DC attorneys representing them specifically for the Russia probe, but Trump doesn't?

The most qualified attorney on his team (Dowd) left after less than a year and Trump has a lawyer specializing in litigation of conservaive pet projects (freedom of religion, pro-life) as the only full-time attorney on the case.

 

Like I said, stay in your lane, kid.

Two more declined today, but like the others they are saying it's a business conflict. 

https://www.thedailybeast.com/dan-webb-and-tom-buchanan-latest-lawyers-to-decline-to-join-donald-trumps-legal-team/

“President Trump reached out to Dan Webb and Tom Buchanan to provide legal representation,” they said in a statement. “They were unable to take on the representation due to business conflicts. However they consider the opportunity to represent the President to be the highest honor and they sincerely regret that they cannot do so. They wish the president the best and believe he has excellent representation in Ty Cobb and Jay Sekulow.”....

 

More from the article:

A spokesperson for the White House did not immediately return a request for comment. 

Buchanan and Webb’s decision highlights the challenges the president has faced in assembling a legal team to represent him for matters related to the Mueller probe. Over the weekend, Trump tweeted that numerous lawyers were eager to work for him. But so far, his team has been shrinking rather than expanding.

 

Dumb thread. 

 

Conflict of interests. Lawyers that don’t get their way quit.
