Cohen's lawyers have quit

A few weeks ago was "if you find yourself being the president's lawyer, you need a lawyer."

Well, the legal team representing the president's lawyer has quit.  (It's in multiple news feeds.)  Might be that the legal paddle Cohen's been counting on won't help him when he's this far up the creek.

I predict a Trump pardon, coming soon...

Is this a proper headline?   "Cohen's lawyers have quit"?

I mean I know it's standard for today's news.  It's pretty much the source of Trump Derangement Syndrome.  Misleading headlines that misrepresent words and actions.

But CNN characterizes it as this:

Trump's personal attorney splits with his own legal team

President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, has split with the legal team that has shepherded him through a criminal investigation that included a high-profile FBI raid, a source familiar with the change said Wednesday.

The split could signal a shift in legal strategy and comes amid mounting pressure on Cohen as criminal charges could become likely.
*****
Cohen has found a new lawyer, but the name of Cohen's new lawyer was not yet known.


NBC like this:

Trump lawyer Michael Cohen expected to split with his attorneys

President Donald Trump's embattled personal attorney, Michael Cohen, is expected to part ways with his current lawyers and hire new counsel as federal investigators continue to dig into his business dealings, a source close to Cohen told NBC News.

Cohen's split from Stephen Ryan and co-counsel Todd Harrison could signal a change in legal strategy but does not necessarily indicate that Cohen has decided to cut a deal with federal prosecutors.

See, I think it's Cohen's characterization that is the misleading legerdemain.  He's wordsmithing in order to conceal something.  He wouldn't "split" with his lawyers.  He'd either replace them (ie: fire them) or they would drop him as a client.  Neither explanation looks good, so he's massaging the press.

It is my own opinion that they dropped him and not the other way around.  Why?  He has a long history of sub-legal actions, leaving him exposed to prosecutorial arm-twisting.  His entire digital life is in state custody.  His boss throws him under the bus at random intervals.  And given his fondness for public flair, it's odd that he is not naming his new lawyer.  Might not have one yet.

You might be entirely right.

I just saw an opportunity to highlight what our media did during the campaign and is still doing and took it Smiley

Word choices are interesting things aren't they?  Estate tax becomes death tax.  Illegal immigrants become undocumented immigrants.  If you're watching for them you can see how politicians and the media work to shift public opinion one way or the other.

Not to mention... living wills, advance directives, end of life care options... all became "death panels" according to the conservative spin meisters.
