Trump Gets Blasted By Impeachment Lawyer That He Tried To Hire

Trump tried to hire Ted Olson to defend him in case impeachment proceedings are brought, but Olson blasted the turmoil surrounding Trump and made it clear why he would never work for him.


Olson said on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, “I think everybody would agree this is turmoil, chaos, confusion. It’s not good for anything. We always believe that there should be an orderly process, and of course, government is not clean or orderly ever, but this seems to be beyond normal.”

There is no way that Ted Olson would ever work for Trump, and his comments explain why no decent or talented person would take a job on this president’s legal team or in his administration. Chaos and amateurism do not play well with the type of professionals and experts that presidents need to surround themselves with. No president in the last century has needed to be surrounded by good people more than Trump, which is exactly why this president’s ability to repulse quality people is creating a self-defeating cycle of failure.

Ted Olson is considered a legal superstar who would have increased the talent and credibility of Trump’s legal team a thousandfold, but he turned Trump down flat because he doesn’t want to work for an out of chaos monger who will never listen to him.

Donald Trump is getting anything but the best people, and this fact will lead to his downfall.
