Donald Trump is facing intensifying legal pressure, but he's been unable to attract the type of high-quality lawyers that would typically represent a former president in high-stakes cases.

At least four well-known attorneys have turned down repeated entreaties by Trump's team in recent weeks, a source familiar with the discussions told CNN, leaving the twice-impeached one-term president with a small and relatively inexperienced legal team to litigate executive privilege and other constitutional issues.


Might want to hold on to that travel money Donny.

If he keeps telling Republicans NOT to vote in 2022 and 2024 I hope no lawyer helps keep him out of jail.

Top lawyers do not want to risk their reputations, bar licenses and integrity representing a man who is incapable of telling the truth and expects the same dishonesty from his lawyers. What lawyer wants to be the next Rudy or Sidney and see their career crash and burn?

There are people who will absolutely deny everything you said there. And that's at the core of the problem.

It’s a well known fact that St Trumpy does not pay His suppliers.

He devoted an entire chapter of His book to screwing people out of money while hanging on to your own.

He plays hardball, just like any other NYC developer.

What problem? Trump can't find a lawyer. That's a good thing. Get Trump out of politics.
Maybe Trump can patch things up with Michael Cohen???

Have not seen him hire and pay top lawyers in years. He goes bargain-basement getting morons like Rudy and Sydney Powell to defend.

Ah yes another story based on anonymous sources! Good to know that some things never change in the main stream media!

There is a difference between playing hardball and being amoral. Are you saying that to be a successful businessman, one has to be amoral?

How is playing hardball in the construction business amoral?

I work in construction, the contractor will try to squeeze every dollar they can out of Change Order work, and the owner will try to make it as cheap as possible.

Most of the complaints about Trump are over Change Order work.

If it wasnt for anonymous sources, the republicans would not have impeached Nixon.

Which was eventually proved via other evidence. What happens with the MSM is they drop crap like this, and then go onto the next story without ever following up.

So the talking point stays without ever having to be defended or proven.
