Now why would the Attorney General of the United States need to hire a lawyer?
A Washington lawyer has confirmed that he’s representing Attorney General Jeff Sessions but is not offering any more specifics.
A statement provided by the office of Chuck Cooper on Tuesday acknowledges that Cooper is representing Sessions. But the statement says Cooper won’t comment on any confidential client matters.
I suppose it’s a good idea since Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III has been investigated for his dealings with Russia. But if the name Chuck Cooper sounds familiar (no, not the actor), it’s because he defended California’s anti-gay marriage Proposition 8 before the Supreme Court…and lost. In a rather interesting turn, he changed his views on the subject in 2014 when his daughter married a woman. Of course, he could have been in favor of it all along, but taking the case meant a hefty paycheck win or lose, so there’s that.
