Trump Plays Fireman As Donald Jr.'s Russia Scandal Engulfs White House

Barack Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law

Cobb is a partner in the investigations practice of the law firm Hogan Lovells in Washington, D.C., and a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, the White House statement said.

Executives at Ivanka Trump's brand recently told The Post that some of the company's factories participate in an global program called Better Work that seeks to boost workplace conditions and prod foreign governments to strengthen labor laws.

As the government's Russian Federation investigations heat up, a growing cast of lawyers is signing up to defend President Donald Trump and his associates. The president's son, Donald Trump Jr., recently hired his own lawyer. "We've been looking the other way for a long, long time". Cobb is expected to play a public role, crafting official White House responses to developments.

"The President has made it clear through this tweet". And then just six days later, as Air Force One was returning from France, more news was breaking about Trump Jr.'s shifting account of the meeting, again launching a bad news cycle and straining the credibility of the president's defense team. "Donald Trump, Jr. was not a protectee of the USSS in June, 2016". The emails indicate the Russian lawyer, through an intermediary, offered to "provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father". At the very least, the emails and the fact that numerous campaign officials attended the meeting show that the Trump campaign was willing to collude with Russian Federation to bring down Clinton.

Sarah Altschuller, a lawyer at Foley Hoag who specializes in corporate social responsibility compliance, said the law could be used to further Trump's America-first agenda. "The president had Secret Service protection at that point, and that raised a question with me", Jay Sekulow, a member of the president's legal team, said on Sunday on the ABC news program "This Week".

The meeting would not become public knowledge for almost another two weeks. Separately, the campaign also paid Jones Day, the law firm that represented Trump's campaign during the election.

A large chunk of the campaign's legal expenses are for Jones Day, White House Counsel Don McGahn's former employer. The AFL-CIO sent a letter in March to appropriators, co-written with the corporate advocacy group U.S. Council for International Business, saying the bureau's work helped in "creating markets for U.S. exports, creating good jobs at home and making it more likely that imports consumed by U.S. consumers are made consistent with American values".

Several former campaign advisers who expect to have to testify before Congress are also hiring lawyers, but they're picking up the cost themselves. And unlucky for me.
