Sessions has hired Chuck Cooper. Cooper and Sessions should be sympatico, as Cooper is a Republican who was part of the Department of Justice Civil Rights division during the Reagan administration. Cooper is probably best known for defending California’s “proposition 8” ban on same-sex marriage in a series of court cases all the way up to the Supreme Court—and losing.

If you’re keeping track of Trumpians who have now grabbed for the Yellow Pages and scanned down to “attorneys who will take anyone,” that list includes, at a minimum.

  • Trump
  • Pence
  • Kushner
  • Sessions
  • Flynn
  • Manafort
  • Page

Kushner is apparently in the market for a new attorney. Is there no firm out there that offers a bulk rate?
