I know that Trump's personal lawyers are probably the only lawyers he knows, but considering that they are as likely as he is to be involved in money laundering and racketeering, they may not be the best choice to bring on for damage control and avoidance of charges in the Russia probe.
Marc Kasowitz, a member of the New York bar who has represented Trump in his business dealings for 15 years, was brought on board by the president last month to provide personal legal advice relating to the Russian inquiry now being conducted by special counsel Robert Mueller. The appointment has placed Kasowitz at the center of the legal maelstrom over the investigation into potential collusion between Russia and elements of Trump’s presidential campaign.


Questions have already been raised about possible conflicts of interest between the lawyer’s role as Trump’s private attorney in the Russian inquiry and his work for various other clients, among them Russia’s largest bank OJSC Sberbank, which he represents in a corporate dispute lodged in US federal court.

The Guardian asked Kasowitz, via his spokesman, to respond to the potential conflict of interest relating to his firm’s role as attorney on the sale of the Times Square building to Kushner but he did not respond before publication. After publication, the spokesman send in a statement: “There are no conflicts under any standard or by any definition.”

Deny. Deny. Deny. What else have you got?

And as we already know, the other Trump private attorney, Jay Sekulow, is under investigation in both North Carolina and New York for laundering money to the Trump organization from his Christian Advocates Serving Evangelism group.

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