Trump Lawyers Facing Legal Challenges
Former President Donald Trump is facing multiple legal challenges and investigations, and he needs a solid defense team.
However, his lawyers keep finding themselves in trouble.
Evan Corcoran, one of Trump’s lawyers representing him in an investigation involving his alleged mishandling of classified documents, has been forced to testify before the special counsel.
This is due to the crime-fraud exception to attorney-client privilege, which means a lawyer can be forced to testify when there’s reason to believe they aided their client in committing a crime.
Another Trump lawyer, Joe Tacopina, is facing conflict of interest problems in the Manhattan DA’s hush money investigation into Trump’s payouts to adult film star Stormy Daniels.
Tacopina claimed in 2018 media appearances that Stormy Daniels approached him to represent her.
If true, this could create a conflict of interest, and he may not be able to represent Trump in the case.
A representative for Tacopina denied that he had ever met Stormy Daniels and claimed that someone else approached him on her behalf.
These legal challenges come at a time when law enforcement in New York City is reportedly preparing a security plan for the Manhattan Criminal Court in anticipation of Trump’s potential indictment.
Trump’s lawyer, Tacopina, has said that if Trump is indicted, he will surrender himself to authorities.
These developments do not bode well for Trump, and he needs a strong defense team to navigate these legal challenges.
