POLITICS

IT’S DIFFICULT for any lawyer to represent someone who is prone to impulsive decisions, selfincriminating statements and potentially corrupt entanglements. But when that someone is the president, your legal advice takes on exponentially more scrutiny and weight.

He was the initial interlocutor with acting Attorney General Sally Yates when she reached out to warn of then–national security adviser Michael Flynn’s potentially compromising conversations with the Russian ambassador. He was the one trying to clean up the mess of President Donald Trump’s first travel ban. And he was part of a small circle of advisers present when Trump decided to fire FBI Director James Comey—the man investigating allegations of collusion between the president’s campaign and Russia during the 2016 election. Now, as four congressional committees and a special counsel continue to probe the White House, he’s defending Trump as the president tries to fend off challenges to his executive authority and an investigation into possible obstruction of justice.
