Looking at Cohen sinking and how McGahn is trying his best to keep his head above water, is being a lawyer for Trump a poison chalice?

I am sure McGahn is fully aware of what it means to be a lawyer for Trump. How long before he quits?

Only good if they win and win convincingly.

But a living nightmare every step of the way.

Being Trump’s lawyer would be the lawyering equivalent of trying to push a runny kittens up a hill with a stick. Hard work, ultimately fruitless and you just want to keep from getting anything on you.

McGahn isn't Trump's lawyer - he's the WH lawyer - very important distinction. Word is he has already had a chat with Mueller

Ty Cobb is trump’s lawyer. I imagine he’s on a whopping retainer plus he knows where all the bodies are buried.

And what Le C said

Agree on McGahn, Chiff, cook. I am sure McGahn hopes daily that Trump understood that distinction. At the moment his entire job appears to be to contain the Potus.

Cookster - not sure Cobbs knows everything. Nor do i think Cobbs wishes to. Trump likes to live his life in boxes and Cobbs might well be happy with the limited scope of the russian collusion only. McGahn probably has a thicker file.

I imagine being his PP lawyer is uber kittens. Even if you agree fees with him which he will then screw you over on that figure on later as he seems to do with every business he has dealings with.

He definitely takes the piss when it comes to fees I reckon.

In that light (and agree with that) it is amazing though that Cohen has had a bit of unfettered access. Which lawyer would pay out of his own account hush money on behalf of a client on a rolling basis.
Agree with cook's that hope they all fry and stew in some federal prison
