Normally, having the HONOR of representing the POTUS would be a career dream as a lawyer! Maybe NOT?



The unwillingness of some of the country’s most prestigious attorneys and their law firms to represent Trump has complicated the administration’s efforts to mount a coherent defense strategy to deal with probes being conducted by four congressional committees as well as Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller.


What strategy? If you are INNOCENT shouldn't it be clear? And why wouldn't these professionals TAKE the job?



“The concerns were, ‘The guy won’t pay and he won’t listen,’” said one lawyer close to the White House who is familiar with some of the discussions between the firms and the administration, as well as deliberations within the firms themselves.

Well, that DOES make sense. If Trump is unhappy with the job, he has a history of NOT PAYING. In this situation? I think he would probably be NOT happy with whatever they did.

When you have lawyers saying, "Thanks, but no thanks!" ...

Yeah. Apparently not too many people think it is a good idea to work for Trump.
The Trump administration has a recruiting problem
Trump's list for FBI Director:

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) withdrew from consideration May 15.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.) withdrew May 16.

Former FBI official Richard McFeely withdrew May 20.

Former Connecticut senator Joseph I. Lieberman withdrew May 25.

More withdrawals:

Three of Trump’s picks to head the Army and Navy have withdrawn from consideration, Vincent Viola (Army), Philip Bilden (Navy) and Mark Green (Army). His first pick to run the Labor Department withdrew. His pick for deputy treasury secretary withdrew, as did his pick for deputy commerce secretary. Trump’s first pick to run the Office of Drug Control Policy, Rep. Tom Marino (R-Pa.), withdrew. Monica Crowley, his pick for National Security Council spokesperson, withdrew. A lawyer on the shortlist for solicitor general withdrew.

So four different lawyers had the same concern in quotes?
That is some coincidence there.

Plenty of people turn down many jobs for many different reasons...Do I really need to link how many people told Barney to take a walk when he offered them jobs??? I don't think I do...

Attorney's also refuse to take on new cases for MANY different reasons. Unless anyone here at ATS or the "unnamed" sources in the OP work directly for the law firm and want to go on record saying why there refused the case this is all conjecture at best. Once again lefty leaning media and their brainless consumers trying to paint the current administration one way and push an agenda.....

LAUGHABLE!!!

All from the OP


None of the lawyers who turned down the White House overtures responded to requests for comment by Yahoo News.



The lawyers and their firms cited a variety of factors in choosing not to take on the president as a client. Some, like Brendan Sullivan, said they had upcoming trials or existing commitments that would make it impossible for them to devote the necessary time and resources to Trump’s defense.

How about some "conflicts of interests" that exist because some lawyers represent(ed) other politicians.

Why NOT? There's a LOT of money to be made representing any/all polticians!!!

Many conservative politicians ARE lawyers.

Regardless of anyone's personal feelings about Trump, under the present atmosphere of "destroy anyone that isn't mean to Trump!!!" it's just bad business to do business with him/for him -- now and in the future. The same attorneys could defend a mass murderer pedophile and the same folks who would destroy them for representing Trump would make every excuse in the book for why it's not just okay but GOOD to defend the murderous pedophile.

And that's the real problem here.

He has a HISTORY of not paying people.

ALSO....he's not even listening to his current WH counsel.

Who would willingly WANT to work for a man that may or may NOT pay, and probably WONT listen?
