As if the Russia probe didnt feel enough like a soap opera, now comes word that two of the major players have a familial connection. Richard Cullen, partner at McGuireWoods, was recently hired as Mike Pences attorney. Turns out Cullen is close with another attorney turned blogging fodder, James Comey. So close, in fact, that Cullen is the godfather to one of Comeys daughters. As Philly.com reports:
But other parts of his resume attracted even more interest. For three years, Cullen worked at a Richmond law firm with a central figure of the Russia investigation: FBI Director James Comey, who was just fired by Pences boss, President Trump.
And not only is Cullen his close associate, as news reports described, but he is also the godfather of one of Comeys daughters.
The world of truly elite prosecutors and defense attorneys is small, so perhaps it isnt surprising that there is this personal connection between key players in this national saga. But given the competing interests involved, well, it could make summer barbecues just a little awkward.
Actually, this was probably a pretty smart move on Pence’s part.
I was thinking the same...Pence gets the inside scoop, and Cullen and I’m sure that Cullen will do a decent job, if only to protect his reputation (i.e., $$$$).
As Vince Lombardi said - “What in the H**l is going on out here????”
True if Pence is angling to get Trump impeached.
The ruling class is a small fraternity
Is day one of law school, “everyone is a whore, so be the best whore”? We’re going to run out of trees.
ANd Jared Kushner had/has Jamie Gorelick for a lawyer!! DUMB and DUMBER!!
OMG!!! I don’t know whether to laugh or puke!
I’m guessing Trump? /s
Im sure that Cullen will do a decent job, if only to protect his reputation
For that very reason I have a suspicion that Mueller will do the same. He knows he is under close scrutiny and even if he never did an honest thing in his life before, he will now because I think he knows how to read the tea leaves. He wants to get on the right side of history. (I hope so, anyway) It’s a known fact that a leopard cannot change its spots. I choose to be optimistic once in a while.
Cullen is on the side of whoever is paying him and will use his connections to keep Pence out of this witch hunt. In the world of Washington paying for influence will go a lot farther than paying for pure legal talent.
You are NAIVE!! He will ALWAYS have DEMOCRATS as his clients ESPECIALLY when he gets TRUMP AND PENCE IMPEACHED!!
Sooooo much political incest in D.C.!
Are you f---ing KIDDING me? This is not dumb and dumber. It's RETARDED AND RETARDED-ER
That woman helped CAUSE 9/11 AND the mortgage crisis. She is the "devil" in the song "sympathy for the devil" if the song was about destroying America through sheer incompetence and malice. I simply can not believe she is able to go out in public, with all the damage she has done to the country. There is no guilt? About anything? Instead she continues on destroying more of the country every day.
That little dickboy kushner needs to GO. And take Daddy's Little Princess with him, too. This is insane.
I have no doubt the Repugnicunt Party is there to serve as the fake "opposition" to the Democrat party, and they are both working together to sabotage Trump. Ans he is NOT the GENIUS you thought him to be, at least in the political sense. He is being compromised at every turn by his one pwople--his own FAMILY!
Yes. I believe Jamie Gorelick is on the White House payroll advising the Kushners on ethics.
Ya can’t make this stuff up!
She’s also Ivanka’s lawyer.
Go figure. I have no words.
I’m not sure how to define friendship in those circles. The currency exchange is different. It seems also to be a small circle with lots of currents and shifting allegiances. If Comey has dirt on Cullen or has leverage its an issue. Otherwise maybe not.
He’s represented nothing but republicans — and Tiger Woods’ ex
