    Default Top lawyers won’t touch Trump with a ‘1,000-foot pole’ as legal crises escalate

    It appears that Donald Trump has become radioactive.

    Donald Trump is facing intensifying legal pressure, but he's been unable to attract the type of high-quality lawyers that would typically represent a former president in high-stakes cases, because of Trump's reputation for non-payment of legal fees, and because Trump's previous lawyers have suffered damage their reputations.

    I would represent him with a 1,000,000 non-refundable retainer and an opt out clause.

    What about these people? Maybe they can help Trump.





    The biggest waste of time is arguing with the fool and fanatic who doesn't care about truth or reality, but only the victory of his beliefs and illusions. Never waste time on discussions that make no sense. There are people who, for all the evidence presented to them, do not have the ability to understand. Others who are blinded by ego, hatred and resentment, and the only thing that they want is to be right even if they aren’t.

    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.

    In the case of Trump, who has stiffed building contractors, and the law firms that represented him; I would say that if someone got a million of Trump's money and ran with it; that would serve Trump right.

    I hear what you are saying. But if you are getting a $1,000,000 retainer from anybody with even half of a brain the "opt out" option is not going to fly.

    I would ask for my money up front, as well, Trump is known for stiffing his lawyers.

    Methinks the law is catching up with Trump and his decades of illegalities. The Jan. 6 commission is in full throttle. NY DA has Trump's taxes. Trump's former press secretary has written a tell-all book of Trump's bad behavior. All we need is one of Trump's minions to sing like a canary and Trump is fucked. He may be already fucked. He knows he's going down and going down hard. And there's nothing he or his flock can do about it.

    These next few months are going to be fun to watch as Trump gets taken down again and again and hard.

    I'm bringing popcorn.
