    Named by whom?

    Found it: "May 2, 2016: Morgan Lewis has been recognized by Chambers & Partners’ 2016 Chambers Europe guide as Russia Law Firm of the Year. The prestigious honor was announced at the publication’s recent annual awards dinner in London, where firms from 24 countries were recognized."

    So if Ford is declared truck of the year in Russia does Trump need to trade in all his autos as well?

    You realize this is a huge global law firm right? Like 20+ countries big. You gotta be ****ing kidding me.

    Despite the OP's click bait title, it's merely another industry insider self-congratulatory award, like the Golden Globes. Except nobody has ever heard of this one.

    Doesn't matter. Every time something like this - something Trump is personally involved with has even a remote link to Russia - it's going to be damaging. True or not. Direct contact or not. This is the trap he has set for himself that he must now live with.

    And your Ford analogy is horrible.

    Click bait title? It's a fact. And naturally a bunch of news sources are picking up on it. But I agree - it's an industry award. But see my response above.

    He's digging deep on this one, starting to hear the scraping sound towards the bottom of the barrel.

    That scraping noise is bedrock. He went through the bottom of the barrel long ago.

    Meh hardly. Just passing on information I've read. Your comments though - that's hitting bottom. If you don't like what I post - don't click in or put me on ignore. Otherwise it's clear you are interested in what I post.

    The proper analogy here is: If Ford build their truck of the year in Russia, would Trump buy a Ford or would he tweet threats at Ford? I think we know the answer to that...

    Trump is buying legal services from a firm that is outsourcing 'Merica jerbs to mother Russia, and possible taking legal advice from partners of the comrade-persuasion at that firm.

    Or Trump got legal services from a company big enough to have offices in US, Russia, and 20+ other countries.

    Jesus I guess I work for the KGB now since my company has offices in Russia too.

    More of a Chevy man myself, which is why I would never associate the brand with Russia.

    I agree. And to add on to that, Trump bashed Hillary for making paid speeches for Goldman Sachs, meanwhile he has multiple of Goldman Sachs partners to join as advisors in the White House. Hypocrisy much???
