Lawyer In Trump Case Was "Mentor" To E. Jean Carroll's Lawyer

 January 29, 2024

Donald Trump's legal team had a plan so good that they kept it hidden in case of emergency.

It's time to break the glass.

Apparently, the judge who recently ruled against Donald Trump in a massive verdict to the tune of $83,300,000 was hiding a secret the entire time.

Conflict of interest.

Trump attorney Alina Habba recently spilled the beans that she had previously not intended to complain about this issue, but that once she heard the details it became too big of an issue to ignore.

The Manhattan Judge who recently ruled in Carroll's favor, Lewis Kaplan, worked at the Paul Weiss Rifkin, Wharton & Garrison law firm in the early nineties.

So did Carroll's lawyer, Roberta Kaplan.

Lewis Kaplan and Roberta Kaplan are reportedly unrelated, but Lewis did serve as Roberta's mentor during the time that both of them were working at the Paul Weiss Rifkin, Wharton & Garrison law firm.

Habba says that the problem is the fact that neither the judge nor the lawyer previously disclosed this relationship before a verdict was reached.

"It was never disclosed. It’s insane and so incestuous," Habba said. She asserted that not telling this information counts as an ethics violation.

A conflict of interest appeal is expected by Donald Trump and his team as a result of this news.

Roberta Kaplan's representation is claiming that their client did nothing wrong because Roberta never worked directly under Lewis at the firm.

Fans of Trump and justice in general will be quick to notice that it really shouldn't matter if Lewis was Roberta's boss or not.

A relationship mentoring somebody else goes far beyond a boss-employee relationship, and actually probably makes this situation even more unethical than if Roberta had just been a subordinate of Lewis.

An anonymous ex-partner at the firm confirmed that "Lewis Kaplan was like her mentor" while both worked at the firm.

It just goes to show you that America's liberal elite really are working for nobody but themselves and each other.
