Coup Lawyer Jeff Clark Adding DC Bar Complaint To His CV

Coup Lawyer Jeff Clark Adding DC Bar Complaint To His CV

Coup lawyer Jeff Clark got hit with disciplinary charges by the DC Bar yesterday. That’s in addition to the allegations of money laundering, tax evasion, and lying on his bar application that I laid out in my last update on this developing story.

Clark has filed hundreds of challenges to voting rights laws all over the country, has been reprimanded by his state bar multiple times, and has escaped similar sanctions from his home state bar in Missouri because he resigned before they could act against him.

Now it looks like he may have to answer some serious questions about whether he belongs in the practice of law at all.

There Can Be No Doubt Now

The evidence is piling up that President Trump’s Lawyer  DOJ has been deliberately working to take down the career and livelihood of his Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

Trump has had a vendetta against McCabe ever since he noted that McCabe had been named Acting FBI Director by President Obama  Lawyer in an official press release on January 30, 2017.

Of course, the big irony of all this is that McCabe would have likely never been in that position if not for Comey’s abrupt departure.

Still, there are undoubtedly many more questions to be answered about how this campaign against McCabe came to be and whether it will lead to even more rampant corruption throughout the White House, DOJ, and FBI.

A Damning New Detail

Clark is one of the few lawyers that agreed to represent President Trump without pay. However, recent reports show his pro bono work may have had a sour effect on his legal career.

A recent Politico report has documented over 400 ethics complaints filed against him to the District of Columbia’s Lawyer Bar. Former colleagues expressed displeasure at this surprising turn of events, with some doubting that they would want to take advice from Clark in the future.

Attorney-Client Privilege Destroyed

Attorney-client privilege was a sacred covenant between an attorney and their client. It was the duty of an attorney to not disclose information that was shared with them by their client in the course of their duties to represent them in a legal matter.

Attorney-client privilege existed for one simple reason: people need to be able to speak openly and frankly with their attorneys about sensitive matters if they are going to take responsibility for themselves or follow through on legal counsel.

Many clients will not make full disclosures during the discovery process because they are afraid that this information will be disclosed. So as absurd as it sounds, the attorney-client privilege can also protect you against wrongdoing – by encouraging full disclosure of facts before litigation, we create an environment where risk is minimized and bad behavior is discouraged.

Where Does Mueller Go From Here?

The day before Labor Day, the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller announced that the first sentence of a plea agreement had been placed on the public record

Paul Manafort, Trump’s Lawyer former campaign manager, had pled guilty and agreed to cooperate with Mueller in his investigation into Russian interference.

The next day on September 3rd, 2017, Cohen and Manafort were found guilty. These developments leave an important question as to where Mueller is going from here.

Will Sessions Let It Slide?

Attorney General Sessions has been a no-show at the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Tuesday. Neither Sessions Lawyer nor any Trump administration official sent to represent him was able to provide satisfactory answers about the Attorney General’s ties to Russian officials,

which raises grave concerns about Sessions’ capacity to oversee any investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.

The top Democrat on the committee Senator Mark Warner said in his opening statement, we are now beginning our second day of what is expected to be a four-day hearing without receiving any cooperation from your department.

This may be because they can’t adequately respond; not because they don’t want to.

Will Congress Investigate?

It’s going to be tough for Congress to investigate this one. For one, there’s no formal complaint. This happened after a complaint was made, and an investigation has already been launched by the Supreme Court Lawyer of Missouri. And now,

the Board of Governors can’t even get involved until a formal complaint is filed with the court because they don’t want to interfere with the case that has already been brought forth.

It would have been really interesting if Donald Trump’s  Lawyer himself had pushed for something like this when he took office! But since he doesn’t seem concerned about it at all and thinks accusations against him are fake news, I don’t think we’re going to see anything happen anytime soon.
