Donald Trump is not the ideal client for any lawyer. Not only are his cases normally losers, he also had a history of stiffing the people that work for him.
Despite his status as a former president, Trump has issues finding high end lawyers. In fact, he told Lindsey Graham that he had to work with Rudy Giuliani because no ‘sane’ attorney would represent him.
His latest lawyer, John Eastman, argued that Mike Pence could have overturned the results of the 2020 election. Former senator Claire McCaskill ripped into Eastman during a Friday morning appearance on Morning Joe.
The MSNBC contributor told Joe Scarborough:
“What’s really scary about that memo is that is man who was trusted to teach law students. I listen to the people on the right, ‘Oh, higher education is all communist teachers and socialist teachers and it’s all left wing.’ This guy, this nutjob was behind a lectern in a law school teaching students about the law, and clearly he has no respect for the law. I cannot imagine how this guy could keep a law license. I think any court — and I don’t care how Trumpian the court is — and look at that memo and the reality of our founding fathers’ documents that we have lived by and been proud of these many years and not say, ‘You don’t belong in the law, buddy. You belong out there maybe selling computers somewhere.'”
