    I have been discussing with a family relative about the top administrators starting to lawyer up.

    I can see it now, all the big lawyer firms in DC having a job fair bringing in all the recent grads from Harvard, Yale, and others because they will be charging 500 an hour and will bill as many hours as they can get away with. I just read somewhere today (CNN) I think that Kushner has hired up as well.

    Thoughts? Discuss......

    I would think it's prudent for anyone to get a lawyer if he/she is the target of a federal investigation.

    I agree. I guess my question is would the lawyers try to take advantage of the administrators because this is becoming a scandal not since the likes of watergate?

    There is an investigation with no evidence revealed thus far, with the way things have been leaking out if they had the evidence it would be out there.

    I'm guessing this is going to turn into a nothing burger although I welcome the investigation.

    You've already had one person who was with that administration lawyering up, as he took his counsel's advice and pleaded the 5th when subpoenaed. That says a hell of a lot, contrary to most of your side's belief.

    Do federal agencies often send you copies of documents regarding their ongoing investigations? If so, why are you the only one who gets to see them?

    Should we reiterate the list of Obama administration employees who pleaded out? This guy was given security clearance by the Obama administration and was barely even part of Trumps admin.

    No but it seems like the media is getting all of the insider info they need to try to sink Trump. It hasn't worked yet though.

    I'm also not the one comparing this to Watergate before anything is even known though.

    Thought he had a lawyer.....Kelly Ann ......isn't she White House council.....a lawyer.

    Yet it is his short time associated with the Trump campaign that got him investigated. He was fired from the previous administration, who then warned the Trump campaign about their concerns & the campaign didn't listen.

    Back to Obama again.....LMAO

    The Trumpster administration has the responsibility to vet each and everyone working for them. It makes not a rodent's behind what Obama's administration did or didn't do.

    But Since acorn wants to go that route, Obama himself personally warned the Donald about hiring Flynn. So on one hand you (acorn) think Obama is responsible for the poor vetting Trump's people didn't do but OBama gets no credit for warning Donald.

    Goes beyond deflection......more like two faced partisanship to me. Unless ....wait a minute......could this be Russian dis information campaign. Our own intelligence agencies and congress state it is still actively going on. What if this "deflection" is really coming from Russian sources?

    The lawyers are smart enough to get paid up front. Big fun for The Donald. Vlad will have to increase T's credit line.

    If Trump gets the boot anytime soon it will be a lose for establishment Democrats with Pence in office. They've had 6 months to get a clue about what is wrong with their party and they're still sprinting in the wrong direction.

    I'll represent him if he puts up the Old Post Office as collateral.

    Yes odd indead, why didn't Trumps security people revoke it. Why after trump's AG informed White House about serious concerns did they wait over two weeks. Odd isn't it. And then fire the messenger that informed them.....double odd. Didn't do anything till it was out in the press. Almost like they wanted to hide it. Very odd in dead.

    If this is all a nothing burger, it is the biggest nothing burger in history roping in literally hundreds of investigators and millions of people on both sides of the aisle.

    I think it's highly probable that one of more forum accounts are Russian controlled :) Then there's the alt-right warriors of course.

    On the topic, it's only natural that they would appoint lawyers to handle this. It's their right and to do otherwise would be foolish, it doesn't really matter if they are innocent or guilty. Everyone should have legal council.

    Than why not make that clear, in the thread starter post. Looks like just another antagonistic, bait thread...

    Weren't we told by the left not to judge when all the lefties were pleading the 5th last administration? Clintons aids, holder, Lerner? Many people during the email investigation, fast and furious investigation, Benghazi investigation, IRS investigation pleaded the 5th.
