RollOnFriday has already covered the extraordinary flow of Jones Day lawyers into the Trump administration, with 12 partners deciding, like a boil lancing itself, to leave the firm and join the sulky egobeast in his fight against the enemies of white supremacy, climate change and kleptocracy. 

But evidence suggests the JD swamp is far from drained.

Before Christmas anti-Trump online magazine Slate published a critical history of the electoral college, which has come under scrutiny for the way in which it disproportionately benefits the Republican party. But slagging it off as an "instrument of white supremacy - and sexism" did not sit well with John A Vogt. John A Vogt may sound like Clockwork Orange slang for nicking a car or Norfolk slang for pleasuring a ferret, but it is actually the name of a Jones Day partner. John A Vogt was so annoyed at seeing the electoral college portrayed negatively that he responded to the article's author by email. Vogt's erudite riposte, tweeted by the author and spotted by Above the Law, demonstrated a grasp of cool critical reasoning which would do Trump proud. If he's after a 13th man from his favourite firm, look no further:



Happily, this is a level of articulation at which RollOnFriday can compete.
