This is shocking news! Who would have guessed that the Trump White House had an ethics lawyer? On a more serious note, this may well turn out to be an example of the old adage regarding presidential crimes, "It's not the crime, it's the cover-up".

(Washington CNN)The January 6 committee made a startling allegation on Monday, claiming it had evidence that a Trump-backed attorney urged a key witness to mislead the committee about details they recalled.

Though the committee declined to identify the people, CNN has learned that Stefan Passantino, the top ethics attorney in the Trump White House, is the lawyer who allegedly advised his then-client, former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson, to tell the committee that she did not recall details that she did, sources familiar with the committeeís work tell CNN.

Trumpís Save America political action committee funded Passantino and his law firm Elections LLC, including paying for his representation of Hutchinson, other sources tell CNN. The committee report notes the lawyer did not tell his client who was paying for the legal services.

Over the summer, Hutchinson emerged as a blockbuster witness for the committee, providing key insight into Trumpís state of mind and his actions leading up to the January 6 attack on the US Capitol. Before her public testimony, Hutchinson dropped Passantino and got a new lawyer.

    I'm not saying Trump was the most ethical politician (which is saying a lot), but having an ethics lawyer is commonplace in every federal agency. They cover things like what do you do with international gifts, and a million of other things including how to answer questions the best way. I don't see that as any sort of red flag at all.

    That said. If true, I would be less than honest if I didn't say the Bar Association should look into this. It was really stupid.

    It was more than "stupid" - it was against the law, which is par for the course in the Trump admin.

    When you say a lawyer did something "stupid" it generally means they should have know better and it was illegal to any sixth grader. So we agree. It was both, without a doubt.

    Pondy- I re-read this and it sounded a tad snooty and dismissive. It wasn't meant to be.
