    So it was mentioned by a few in other threads about the investigations that it's smart for various people to retain a lawyer when dealing with all the various Russia investigations upcoming into the Trump campaign. Interestingly enough there is one guy who's having trouble getting a lawyer...

    Sometimes one's past can come back to haunt you.

    Yes, I saw an interview today where someone said it is well known in New York law firms that Trump does not pay his bills..that it's not just contractors he stiffs.

    I didn't know that until today. Interesting. I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I wonder if they will have problems getting people to build their new line of more moderate three star hotels they are planning? The whole brand and family seems to be an out of control train wreck now just waiting to derail.

    Yes, a civil rights attorney, and then taught constitutional law for 12 years. The F-FS worked in corporate law for one of the largest firms in the US and in the world, and held or holds various positions on boards. I don't the Obamas are in need of any money from DJT. Considering the book deal they got which their ghosters will write.

    Obama did have a his own private counsel ( lawyer ) like every president, he just never needed their services.

    That's because WH counsel isn't protected by attorney-client privilege. They don't protect the President, they protect the Office of President and The White House.

    I understood that all presidents keep private counsel. So as you say that's why 45 needs counsel now for his own personal protection. Obama had his counsel, but since he wasn't being investigated himself for anything his counsel's services were never needed, like 45 does now.

    Maybe he can get Dr. Harold N. Bornstein to help out.

    I must be psychic! Otherwise, how could I have guessed that even before I read it?

    Oh, Karma, you great big beautiful big-***ted doll!

    May it happen to his entire "empire."

    Trump and his corporation have proven to not care about those that provide good or services to them. That well should dry up.
