Who knew? Trump's top White House attorney is Covington Catholic High School graduate

Well golly...

The nationwide firestorm surrounding Covington Catholic has brought to light that one of the Greater Cincinnati high school's most prominent graduates happens to be President Trump's top White House attorney.



Pat Cipollone, CovCath class of 1984, recently took over as White House general counsel. He had previously served as an informal adviser to the president on the special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections.

What does Cipollone's White House role have to do with last week's incident in Washington, D.C., involving current CovCath students? Absolutely nothing, but it wasn't been widely known that Trump had a top adviser directly connected to CovCath or to Greater Cincinnati, for that matter.

Here are some other things to know about Cipollone:

He's a committed Catholic advocate. In 2004, Cipollone was one of the founding members of the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast. Conservative former presidential candidate Rick Santorium also helped start the annual prayer meeting, which draws more than 1,500 people to Washington.

Cipollone is "well-liked and respected" by Trump's personal attorneys, the Washington Post reported in October, when Cipollone was hired. In the same article, Trump was quoted as saying: "Pat's a great guy. He's very talented."

Fox News' Laura Ingraham has called Cipollone her "godfather" and "spiritual mentor" because he helped the conservative commentator convert to Catholicism in 2002, according to The Post.

After leaving CovCath, Cipollone received his bachelor's degree from New York City's Fordham University. He went to law school at the University of Chicago.
