Trump's Personal Lawyer Hires A Lawyer For Russsia Probe: NBC


Adding to what has already been a truly bizarre day, even by Washington D.C. standards, NBC is now reporting that even Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, has been forced to ‘lawyer up,’ as the special counsel investigation into Russian election interference progresses.

According to NBC’s Katy Tur, Cohen has hired Washington, D.C., attorney Stephen M. Ryan and is expected to testify before the House Intelligence Committee on September 5th.



Meanwhile, Tur also reported that Michael Caputo, a communications adviser brought on board the Trump campaign by Paul Manafort, has been contacted by the FBI as well and has retained his own attorney — former New York state Attorney General Dennis Vacco.




Of course, this follows the news from yesterday that Vice President Pence had also retained Richard Cullen, a Richmond attorney from McGuire Woods, who previously served as a US attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia.

If nothing else, at least Mueller’s ongoing “witch hunt”, as President Trump likes to describe it, will serve to further enrich an army of D.C. attorneys.
