Trump's Lawyer Just Hired a Lawyer

Michael Cohen, longtime personal attorney to President Donald Trump, has retained his own legal counsel to handle the sprawling probe into Russian interference in the U.S. election.

Cohen has hired Stephen Ryan of Washington, D.C. law firm McDermott, Will & Emery, as NBC News’ Katy Tur first reported Friday and Cohen confirmed to the Washington Post. Much of Ryan’s practice is devoted to trying cases for lobbyists, but he also has experience prosecuting criminal cases and directing investigations into organized crime networks.

There's that organized crime thing again. That part of the FBI/Special Prosecutor cases is going to get bigger and deeper. I don't know what will come of it, but it's on the edge of everything being published about both the Russian collusion and obstruction of justice cases.
News broke Thursday night that Vice President Mike Pence also hired outside legal counsel, Richard Cullen, to assist with queries about the multiple Russia probes. He said Friday that this move was “very routine,” according to a White House pool report.
Becoming more and more routine.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
