Trump Lawyer Boris Epshteyn Appears Before Atlanta Grand Jury

Source: New York Times

Boris Epshteyn, one of former President Donald J. Trumpís most prominent lawyers, testified on Thursday before a special grand jury in Atlanta that has been convened as part of a criminal investigation into election interference by Mr. Trump and his allies.

Mr. Epshteyn played a central role in efforts to keep Mr. Trump in power despite his loss in the 2020 election. He now serves as an in-house counsel for the former president, helping coordinate the Trump teamís various legal defense efforts; a separate federal investigation into Mr. Trumpís mishandling of classified documents is underway, along with the inquiry by the Congressional committee investigating the attack on the Capitol by Trump supporters on Jan. 6, 2021.

The grand jury appearance was the latest legal complication for Mr. Epshteyn ó one of a number of Trump lawyers who have themselves faced an onslaught of criminal and civil exposure. Earlier this month, federal investigators seized Mr. Epshteynís cellphone as part of yet another federal investigation, this one into the attempts to overturn the election results and the Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol.

His lawyer did not return calls for comment.

1. It's hard to choose the most unlikeable Trump aide.

i mean, the competition is stiff:
Kellyanne Conway
Steve Bannon
Stephen Miller
Sebastian Gorka.

But I think we can agree that Boris Epshteyn is up there near the top of the list.
