Would An Ethical Attorney Ever Work For Trump?

The Department of Justice by Nancy Ohanian

Before dawn this morning, Axios published a scoop by Lachlan Mackay and Jonathan Swan: High-powered group targets Trump lawyers’ livelihoods about how the 65 Project, "a dark money group with ties to Democratic Party heavyweights [which] will spend millions this year to expose and try to disbar more than 100 lawyers who worked on Donald Trump’s post-election lawsuits. [They plan] to begin filing complaints this week and will air ads in battleground states [including Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin]. It hopes to deter right-wing legal talent from signing on to any future GOP efforts to overturn elections-- including the midterms or 2024... It also will push the ABA and every state bar association to codify rules barring certain election challenges and adopt model language stating that 'fraudulent and malicious lawsuits to overturn legitimate election results violate the ethical duties lawyers must abide by.'"

David Brock, the #1 grifter in Democratic Party politics-- and that is saying a lot-- is involved with the group, guaranteeing that even if not one single Trump lawyer is disbarred, lots of sucker money will be spent and will flow into Brock's pockets. "Brock told Axios in an interview that the idea is to 'not only bring the grievances in the bar complaints, but shame them and make them toxic in their communities and in their firms. I think the littler fish are probably more vulnerable to what we're doing. You're threatening their livelihood. And, you know, they've got reputations in their local communities.'"

Trump also has something of a reputation--and he tried defending it in a letter to Lester Holt after Holt's interview with for Attorney General William Barr for NBC News. Apparently, Trump now hates all the people he brought into government... have you noticed? And he says they are all incompetent, venal and stupid. Barr may have made his point for him on the Today Show this morning by saying Trum runs again in 2024, he'd vote for him, notwithstanding what he said in his book and what Trump has since said about him! Enjoy the letter... it will eventually be studied not just in history classes, political science classes and communications classes, but also in psychology classes and, perhaps, in criminal law classes:
