Turley: I Hope Trump ‘Learned from the Rather Steep Learning Curve of Firing Comey’

‘He would lose Republicans’

EXCERPT:

TURLEY: “Well, I’m just assuming that the president has — has learned from the rather steep learning curve of firing Comey because this would be far, far worse. He would lose Republicans just as the House could very well change hands. But the biggest problem with what Ty Cobb is describing is that if someone is leaking attorney/client material to — to effectively cut off an option for the President, it raises serious legal ethics questions. If that wasn’t done with the consent of the President, you just handed over attorney/client material to the media and that is a violation. You don’t do that. And the idea that you’re seeing lawyers now using leaks to try to influence the course of the litigation indicates how truly bad this situation may have become.”
