Mr Trump is having trouble finding a lawyer to represent him in this Russia probe. His long time lawyer, a guy named Dowd, quit in protest the other day. Then a bunch of lawyers declined to represent the president and a couple of septuagenarians who the president wanted to hire were deemed “too disheveled” for the job.
Now, I hear another big shot lawyer who was solicitor general under President Bush, as has also declined the president’s offer for a job on the president’s legal team. This guy’s name is Ted Olsen. On TV, he can be heard citing the chaos, confusion and turmoil in the White House as his reason for keeping his distance from that gig.
Dommage. I do wonder about this whole thing on a whole other level because why does the President need all these lawyers?? He already has very competent legal counsel on his team and it is just a chat with the special counsel Robert Mueller and then this whole thing will be over, right? Cause there is no collusion as the President has repeatedly said. So what is going on? It is almost as if this thing is getting more and not less serious and the way the president is trying to desperately to find lawyers, it makes me start to think that maybe he thinks he is really in legal jeopardy in this situation and then I start wondering why? What jeopardy could he be in if there is no collusion?
Is he worried about the obstruction of justice charge? Has he committed perjury? Are there bombshells as far as finances that involved not just his son in law but the president as well? Why does it seems like he is so worried? Why does it seem like he is taking this thing way too seriously for a guy who has said from the outset that he has not done anything wrong?
Is it that he is covering his ass just in case?
I don’t get it.
Why doesn’t he just let the team he currently has do their job and focus on doing his job as president and talk with Mueller, be truthful and frank and move on from this circus as quickly as possible? Why go on this desperate search for lawyers who keep turning him down making it look like there is fire behind all the smoke?
I don’t get it.
Maybe he is afraid not for himself but for members of his family? It sure does sound like Jared Kushner, his son in law, could be in trouble by the end of all this. I wouldn’t be surprised by an indictment for something in his case.
But is the President himself compromised? Is that why he seems to be in panic mode?
I feel bad for the president. He is a complex personality and I certainly do not agree with everything he says and does but this situation has got to be causing him a tremendous amount of stress. It makes me feel bad for him.
