Report: Trump’s Private Attorney Tells White House Staff Not To Lawyer Up – Talking Points Memo:
This post is not about politics, but it is very important.
Trump hired Marc Kasowitz, an attorney, to defend him. Kasowitz has told other White House staffers not to get their own lawyers. If you are part of an organization and you are advised not to retain an attorney by an attorney, think long and hard before following this advice.
The other guy’s lawyer (in this case Marc Kasowitz) has no duty to you and, indeed, does not care about you at all. He might be planning to throw you under the bus to save his own client.
In sum, if you had some meaningful conduct that might be questioned, you should seek legal advice immediately.
Being told you don’t need a lawyer, means that you probably need one!
