Attorney Runs Down List Of Very Real Consequences TrumpWorld Is Currently Suffering

Will the January 6th Committee make a criminal referral for Donald Trump to the U.S Justice Department? Will Attorney General Merrick Garland indict a former president on allegations of election crimes? If there are no consequences, what will deter a future president from contacting a Secretary of State in a state where he lost his re-election bid, and encouraging that person to “find” votes to change the outcome?

Over half of Americans in a recent poll by the Associated Press said that they believed Trump should face charges. Experts have warned that if there are no consequences for the events of January 6th, we can expect a recurrence — and perhaps a more competently-carried-out one, that might even be successful next time. Some folks are beginning to despair, wondering if there will ever be any repercussions.

However, attorney Don Lewis pointed out in a Twitter thread that while Trump himself may not have been hit with criminal charges so far, some of his closest allies are, at least, suffering very real consequences of their actions.

First, he points out that a new Justice Department filing suggests that Robert Costello, an attorney who has represented multiple Trump allies in various cases, is lying to the January 6th Committee about the willingness of Steve Bannon — his current TrumpWorld client — to testify.

That’s not all– Lewis reminds us that multiple of Trump’s attorneys, and attorneys tied to his election claims — Rudy Giuliani, John Eastman, and Jeffrey Clark — have had their homes raided,and/or devices seized for evidence.

Attorneys who pushed election conspiracy theories have had licenses to practice law suspended, have faced lawsuits, and are hit with sanctions. Lin Wood is even being required to undergo a mental health examination if he wants his license to practice law in Georgia restored.

Lawyers who’ve been tied to Trump, even those who haven’t necessarily been employed by him in official capacity, are facing a list of challenges and consequences.

In fact, it’s been reported that Trump found himself running out of high-profile attorneys to work for him.

All that adds up to — well, a lot. If a future candidate seeks to repeat the same election schemes, they might just have a hard time finding an attorney who’s willing to take the risks.
