Trump campaign punishes Don McGahn's law firm

Source: Politico

The Trump campaign has hired its own in-house attorney for its 2020 reelection bid — shifting future business away from Jones Day, the law firm, that has represented Trump since his first run for president.

Campaign officials and advisers cast the decision to hire Nathan Groth — a former lawyer for the Republican National Committee and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker — as a money-saving move, supported by the businessman-turned-president who loves to cut costs.

But close Trump advisers say the decision also stems from disappointment with the White House’s former top attorney and current Jones Day partner, Don McGahn, whose behavior has irked the president and some of his family members.

Taking business away from Jones Day is payback, these advisers say, for McGahn’s soured relationship with the Trump family and a handful articles in high-profile newspapers that the family blames, unfairly or not, on the former White House counsel.

3. Think what they will gain in the end.

Trump's vindictiveness usually helps its object.

8. Punish or reward?

Once the rest of the crap is exposed, the new law firm will wish they had steered clear of this toxic orange ass. He did McGahn's law firm a favoir, they are off the hook for any further headaches which result is protecting this mad man.

9. How stupid

This is a guy who can testify or go public and pose an existential threat to Trump.

Petty vindictiveness in this is boneheaded.
