White House counsel Don McGahn last summer recused his entire office from handling special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe because many of his staff attorneys had been "significant participants" in events Mueller is investigating, including the firing of FBI Director James Comey and National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, former White House attorney Ty Cobb said Wednesday during a panel discussion at George Mason.

"The White House made a decision to recuse his entire office," Cobb said, according to Politico.

Cobb retired at the end of May and was replaced by Emmet Flood, a veteran defense attorney who has deep experience guiding American presidents, vice presidents, and governors through past scandals.

The only people not recused are the central conspirators in an attempt to overthrow the government of the United States.

How much more perverse can the situation get?

Trump has lots of experience hiring lawyers, but after the election not so many wanted to work for him anymore.

People who have never been elected or hired to accomplish squat are filled with all manner of illusions of what should be done. It is just what some people do, shout out because they can.

Exactly.

Republicans often seek to act ethically and to get along with the DNC and those that do do their bidding.

Democrats are out for blood.

If you can do it it ain’t bragging. If you can’t maybe you shouldn’t prove it.

I have a conflict of interest because I believe I am not guilty. Therefore I am recusing myself from pleading not guilty and finding someone to defend me.

These people are insane

Exactly. It’s sick and the situation is getting extremely dangerous.

B.S. I’d work for POTUS Trump in a NY minute and so would numerous other non-DC lawyers.
