Donald Trump might have hired Marc Kasowitz to help him with the Russia Investigation, he scoured the SC Beltway looking for a lawyer, and were rejected by all of them. So, why wouldn’t a single DC Lawyer help a guy who, over a 30-year period, was involved in over 4,000 court proceedings? As The New York Times reports

“The work is hard, sometimes even humiliating. In fact, the one irreducible character trait of a Trump Lawyer is that he or she is willing to take on Trump as a client, one who often either doesn’t solicit their advice or simply ignores it; who subverts their legal strategy on national television, who requires them to deny facts that he has confirmed and confirm facts that he has denied; who won’t stop tweeting inflammatory, threatening and clearly false statements. It’s a lot to ask of a professional.”

In June, Yahoo News reported that many DC law firms gave the chance to work with Trump a hard pass:

“Top lawyers with at least four major law firms rebuffed White House overtures to represent President Trump in the Russia investigations, in part over concerns that the president would be unwilling to listen to their advice, according to five sources familiar with discussions about the matter.”

Despite being probably the best paycheck they will ever see, working with Trump is so risky, they don’t want to go anywhere near the White House. This includes Brendan Sullivan, who defended Oliver North. North, the deputy director of National Security in the late 80’s, was believed to be part of the Iran-Contra scandal. Out of 12 charges, he was found guilty of three that were eventually overturned. According to Yahoo News, Sullivan and other lawyers “said they had upcoming trials or existing commitments that would make it impossible for them to devote the necessary time and resources to Trump’s defense.”

As well, Ted Olsen, the lawyer who represented Reagan during the Iran-Contra scandal, Paula Jones when she sued Bill Clinton for sexual harassment, and George W. Bush in the 2000 election recount, also said no to Trump. Olsen built his career on high-profile Republican and anti-Democrat, and he still ran in the other direction. As one lawyer said:

“Do I want to be associated with this president and his policies?”
