The very shady way that Donald Trump's new lawyer got very, very rich - 2017-06-21
On paper, Donald Trump is a lawyer's dream client. Deep pockets. A seemingly never-ending stream of legal problems. And a high-profile that can transform his confidants into minor celebrities.
Trump's the kind of client that could pay off a lawyer's mortgage, put their children through college, buy them a sexy sports car, and leave them with enough attorney's fees left over to pay for a vacation home.
And yet Trump's struggled to find counsel to represent him in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation into the Trump campaign's Russia ties. As one lawyer told Yahoo News' Michael Isikoff, "the guy won't pay and he won't listen." Trump's reputation as a blowhard who doesn't pay his bills and won't stop sending damaging tweets reportedly left many of Washington's best lawyers unwilling to represent the President of the United States.
