    Not news. Another leftist objecting to Trump. Thanks for giving them another platform. Really helpful to moving forward.

  • Jeffrey Spangler

    As Lily Tomlin‘s Ernestine might say, "we‘re a global house of hookers. We don‘t care. We don‘t have to."

  • Fortune 500 GC

    Gee, $77,000 in fees for an entire year. I hope Morgan Lewis can survive this tragic loss of a grandstanding client. I‘m tempted to send them twice that amount of business to make up for it.

    Monkeybones, who are you referring to as "she"? H. Scott Wallace is a man, so..... I think you might be referring to the chair of Morgan Lewis, who I believe you were attempting to defend with your comments.

  • Thomas Allen

    I was shocked to see Morgan Lewis allow the firm to be associated with this outright fraud.

    The one thing you Trumpies ought to drop is the "Rape Enabler" bit. Most sensible people would consider your President‘s admitted p-grabbing to be far more nefarious

    Radical left? Is there anyone who believes Morgan Lewis‘s conclusions are correct on this matter? The conflicts of interest are beyond belief and either Trump should have been required to complete divest all interests in these businesses or he should not have run for or been seated as President

    She‘s a classic example of the Radical Left. Their ideology overshadows everything. They were fine with a rape enabler. Hypocrites!! Torching Berkeley over a speech is also fine with these Lefties. I would not sell an investment based on political consideration. How naive she is!! If I did own her fund I would sell it, not because of her politics, but because of her stupidity. I would say the exquisite lawyers at MLB are better off without her!

    It is particularly troubling since the advice provided by Morgan Lewis seems ill-advised. It is unfortunate what some people will do for money. See pbs.org/newshour/bb/trumps-plan-company-enough-avoid-conflicts-interest.
