Someone Is Trying to Scrub Trump's Name From the Wikipedia Page of Lieberman's Law Firm [View all]

There’s a Wikipedia edit war going on right now on the page of the law firm of Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman. That wouldn’t be notable except for the fact that someone is trying to scrub Donald Trump’s name from the page and Joe Lieberman is a special counsel at the firm. Lieberman is a frontrunner to head the FBI and his relationship with the firm has been a point of concern.

The user briefly removed Trump’s name from the third sentence of the entry that reads, “Notable clients have included Donald Trump,[4] Robert DeNiro, Celanese, ArvinMeritor, Liggett Group, Enron, WorldCom and Mia Farrow.” The reference beside Trump’s name goes to an article titled “Meet Marc Kasowitz, the litigator who often represents Donald Trump.” Currently, the reference has been restored despite a back and forth between admins and the anonymous editor.

Indeed, Kasowitz has represented Trump a number of times including in his defamation case against Timothy L. O’Brien, author of TrumpNation: The Art of Being the Donald. An appeals court ruled against Trump. who claimed he’d been defamed because O’Brien said he wasn’t a billionaire. Marc Kasowitz also threatened legal action against the New York Times last October when that paper published some of Trump’s tax returns from 1995. Nothing ever came of the threats. Trump’s general counsel Alan Garten told the Wall Street Journal in January that “Marc’s always been a guy you go to when you have complex, intricate legal problems.”
