Another Trump lawyer steps forward with a, well, colorful defense

Few Americans in modern history have run through a series of lawyers as colorful — and often, of such dubious reliability — as Donald Trump.

And now we have a new entry in that long succession: Joe Tacopina.

In appearances on ABC News, Fox News and MSNBC this week, the high-profile criminal defense lawyer rather enthusiastically laid out Trump’s defense against a potentially imminent criminal charge in Manhattan. In the course of doing so, though, Tacopina lodged a series of questionable claims about the case.
