ctm-Trump Gets Dumped! Eric Trump’s Lawyer Abandons Him In New York Investigation

One of the lead counselors representing Eric Trump in the ongoing New York investigation has officially resigned from the case, according to filings from the court. The lawyer, Marc Mukasey, officially resigned last week, just one day after certain documents were sealed by court order. There is little known about why Mukasey decided to step away, but that can’t be a good sign for Eric or the rest of his family. Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.

Eric. Trump might be in a little bit of trouble as it was revealed this week that his top lawyer representing him in the ongoing investigation in New York state, uh, resigned last week, mark knew Casey who had been representing Eric Trump in this matter, uh, actually wrote to the court on September 14th and said, yeah, I’m done. He officially resigned with the court as Eric Trump’s counsel in the matter. Now UKC has not responded to requests from the media, according to Forbes for any kind of clarification at all, as to why he left. And of course, neither has Eric Trump. So we’re left to wonder what the heck happened. Right? Well, here’s one thing we do know actually the day before UKC resigned, uh, they were actually able to get the court to seal some documents in the case. So we don’t know what those documents are there. They’re sealed, right?

That’s the whole point of sealing them. So he wins this victory, get, gets these documents or evidence or whatever it is sealed. So the public cannot know about it. And then the next day he’s like, okay, Hey, cool judge. I’m out. I’m done. I’m done. I did my thing. I’m outta here. Very weird. Right. See, here’s the thing, even though we don’t know why mu Casey resigned, uh, we do know that that’s never a good sign in a lawsuit, right? When your lawyer quits, before you even go to trial, if there’s a trial at all, if your lawyer’s just like, yeah. Um, I got some other things I gotta do. So, uh, best of luck on your future endeavors, but I’m high tail in and outta here. No, that’s not good. That’s not a show of faith by the lawyer. And this is a guy that’s a lawyer, uh, whose repre represented, you know, several high profile corporations, including Halliburton.

Um, he represented one of the guys that Donald Trump ended up pardoning, uh, who had been accused of essentially war crimes. So he represented this guy. So UKC is no stranger to representing clients that, you know, have a pretty bad reputation in the media and has no problem representing clients who have a right-wing tilt. So why dump Eric? Right? I that’s, that’s the million dollar question, isn’t it? Why dump him? Are you worried that they’re not going to pay their legal bills? I mean, hell the Trump organization does have, you know, a kind of checkered history. There’s been plenty of stories out over the years of them not paying their bill. So were you worried about that? If I were you, I probably would be a little bit, but now some doesn’t smell right about this. Why abandoned Eric Trump now?

Why not just stick with it? If he had confidence that the case was not going to go anywhere, he would have stuck with it because if you think it’s not going anywhere, Hey, you don’t have to do a whole lot of work here. But if you think that you’re fighting a losing battle, that is only going to drag your name through the mud, then that’s a good reason to get out. Listen, I have seen some of the best lawyers in this country. I’ve sat down. I have spoken with them and they have talked about cases that seem like slam dunks, but they walked away because they knew then that there was no way of winning and that the evidence was shoddy. And that overall it was going to be a waste of time. Even if it was big cases against massive corporations who they knew were killing people with their products, they still declined to take the case because they knew there was no possible chance.

It could be one. So based on the experiences that I have had with lawyers across the country, many of them in the trial lawyer hall of fame, I interviewed them for the trial lawyer hall of fame. Um, knowing what I know about them, walking away from a case is a big deal. Walking away from a high profile case is an even bigger deal. And the only reason these individuals tend to do that is when they know they have no chance whatsoever of succeeding. And the failure from that would only bring them embarrassment. We can’t draw really any conclusions because we don’t know why mew Casey stepped away, but I’m willing to bet it wasn’t because he thought everything was great.

    He probably dumped Eric because the crap he got sealed proved to him that Eric and the rest of the clan are guilty as hell!

  • draco argentum on September 25, 2021

    Plot twist: Eric's lawyer is running away with Eric's wife.

  • Paul Smith on September 25, 2021

    Farron, do you really think that an attorney is going to explain why he terminated his representation of a client?

  • Pamela Timmins on September 25, 2021

    Good; I hope eric trump, his daddy, his brother jr, and his sister ivanka all get sent to jail soon. Such a corrupt family.

  • Neill J on September 25, 2021

    2 possible things
    1. The sealed stuff is highly prejudicial and now the Lawyer knows hes guilty.
    2. Recently several high profile cases have been Ruled as Farsical and the Lawyers have been sanctioned and ordered to pay.

  • Donald McFatridge on September 25, 2021

    Everyone knows Eric is almost as smart as his dad. The only reason the elder Trump even lets Eric come near him is so he can give a hug to Lara. Because you know 45 is not hugging Don redeyes Junior's Kimberly Guilfoyle.

  • Mo LIV ROMAN on September 25, 2021

    Hey Cuz, he doesn't pay anyone, ever, for work done.

  • Mike Kenney on September 25, 2021

    You’re right of course. Embarrassment surely. Problem with all Trump cases is suborning perjury

  • Joseph Gomes on September 25, 2021

    My guess is that he hasn't paid the billable hours up to now. After a win in court the attorney likely asked for a payment and found out the WELL is DRY!!

  • Terry on September 25, 2021

    Lawyers do not like when their clients lie even though there is a mountain of evidence to prove otherwise.

  • sah egdoh on September 25, 2021

    I really enjoy hearing your thoughts on these diverse happenings. I do believe that you are over-thinking this one. A lawyer with a tainted client never "loses" regardless of the output. The lawyer gets exposure, gets reputational advantage for trying to develop the best strategy. And as he stays, he gets paid… or does he? A criminal trial lawyer has to get his pay up front, and cannot later bail just because he "isn't being paid"! The "not being paid" has to be slid aside as the lawyer presents the court with better reasons for not staying on the case. Those excuses are likely what is in the sealed documents, because at the same time the lawyer drops off, he has to present to the court "good and sufficient cause" in the breakdown between lawyer and client. Those things should not be published because of any possible effect it could have on the client's case.Really just routine and shouldn't fuel any speculation.

  • Rebellc on September 25, 2021

    You bore me. Take your finger off the repeat button. Holy Christ.

  • Nathan Scott Shoemaker on September 25, 2021

    Trumps are known liars and don’t pay.

  • PointingOutObvious on September 25, 2021

    You got to pay your lawyers, if you want them to continue working for you.

  • s QUADAIMAT on September 25, 2021

    the lawyer does not want to lie.

  • Carla Harris on September 25, 2021

    When will drump's cult understand that ANY drump is toxic?

  • Patrick Regan on September 25, 2021

    So did he have to hitch hike after getting dumped????

  • Erica Roy on September 25, 2021

    Lawyers who help Trump with his law suits all of them should loose there license even gulani . Fire all of them ASAP.

  • vince baldwin on September 25, 2021

    Tax tax jumping jacks time to pay or Jail you'll stay! Don't cry Daddy may come and visit for a long long time!

  • vince baldwin on September 25, 2021

    Can't wait to see Donald Trump Jr face the 🔥

  • SOLARVERSE 1 on September 25, 2021


  • Jason on September 25, 2021

    Pure speculation and hot air coming out of your pie hole. But you think you’re pretty cute and popular…. that’s all that matters. Right?

  • Pierre C on September 25, 2021

    No way of winning may be a secondary consideration. In my opinion the attorney left because he realized the ET was lying to him and/or did not take his advice into account.

  • Dani B on September 26, 2021

    Maybe he wasn’t getting paid.

  • Mike Ross on September 26, 2021

    There shouldn't be anything funny about eric's lawyer dumping him midstream. However, I'm stuck laughing my ass off every time a trumpty goes splash. I have faith in karma and am delighted when the cowardly and chicken sxxt leaches realize they can't float with all that stolen gold in their pockets. I commend their souls to the deep, the sooner the better.

  • Chris Ford on September 26, 2021

    Here is the deal. First off the dad is lame duck bat shix crazy. Everyone knows that. He is a loser which everyone knows that. SO-what if the fruit fell short of the tree. Maybe Eric is on the cusp of being BSC? So- there are three kinds of lies. Lies – Dam Lies – and Sealed documents? Very interesting… so the question becomes. Why is not Trump in jail? People who break the law- ie. driving too fast. You get a ticket. Then you call the state of Georgia looking for voters? Phone call is recorded and its totally un apprporiate? Its like calling a girl friend… a old loser girlfriend…. looking for Neil Siemon songs about "how the world use to be".- or how about that beer can from 1999 at 4:12am when the house is asleep.

  • George Moore on September 26, 2021

    When a lawyer is defending a criminal on serious charges the first thing he tells them is to “Shut the f#@k up and don’t talk to anyone, let me do all the talking……..
    we all know the Trumps don’t take direction well, they can’t keep their mouth shut…….they are impossible to defend, while the lawyer is saying “they didn’t do it, nobody seem them do it, you can’t prove they did it” they are out in the media saying they did it because they can get away with anything……… lawyer worth his salt can put up with that crap………and then probably not get paid anyway…….The most surprising thing is he took the job in the first place,
    the Trump ship is taking on water faster than the Titanic, anyone who doesn’t abandon ship is going down with it, the writing is on the wall

  • Virginia D`ambrosio on September 26, 2021

    He probably realized he wouldn't be paid

  • ezcat106 on September 26, 2021

    Rumps go through lawyers almost as fast they go through donor cash.

  • ruben gutierrez on September 26, 2021

    They're all going to jail!

  • Sandra Newman on September 26, 2021


  • Sandra Newman on September 26, 2021

    Roll on

  • Barry Rudge on September 27, 2021

    I think we all have a well educated guess on that one

  • Kinko Belgzarish on September 27, 2021

    If this is even true, these lawyers are wimps. They quit when they're threatened by the wicked Leftist's. End of story.

  • One Truth on September 27, 2021

    You just can’t defend Stupid!!

  • Mario Rincon on September 27, 2021

    Is probably nothing. Remember when Donald Trump was losing lawyers at an alarming rate and no reputable firm wanted to take his case? Everyone thought it was because he was finally going down, and then nothing happened.

  • Stacey Smith on September 27, 2021

    I'm sure it has NOTHING to do with his representing Matt Gaetz

  • Malcolm Ledger on September 28, 2021

    What was Trump accused of? Surely that is not a secret.

  • John McDonald on September 28, 2021

    What are the possible reasons that could be used to prevent the public seeing those documents!
    1) National Security?
    2) To protect the innocent? Highly unlikely?
    3) To prevent another Investigation being compromised? Possibly releasing information now could jeopardise a much bigger case? Highly likely
    4) Perhaps to cover up an already Executive Order like the Pardoning of Daddy Trump's partners in Crime?
    Which do you think is the most likely?
    Information withheld from public scrutiny is always subject to speculation. It also over – rides the principle that Justice must be SEEN to be done, – of course it could only be temporary, and released later?
    Don't you just love playing the speculation game! Perhaps the reason for secrecy could be explained, if not the content of those documents?

  • Iama freespirit on September 28, 2021

    Another lawyer seen the light and he doesn't want to loose his license over the trumps…

  • Anastasia Beaverhausen on September 28, 2021

    Top 5 things that are better and/or more important things to do than represent the Trumps:

    1) Mow the lawn
    2) Walk the dog
    3) Watch paint dry
    4) Watch grass grow
    5) Keep your integrity

  • Paul Shaw on September 28, 2021

    Speaks volumes as to how wrong & disgusting his EX-client really is?!

  • Carlos P. Jr on September 29, 2021

    Eric Trump ran out of money and daddy said you’re on your own son. 😏😂😂😂😂😂😂

  • Aaren FourEver on October 2, 2021

    Sounds like the rats are finally jumpin' ship!

  • Michael Jones on October 2, 2021

    Trump has been a lier and a crooked for many years. Nothing new, but you can only mess with the Bee's nest for so long and sooner or later your going to get stung!! Badly at that? Well its getting close. Its that plan and simple!!

  • Fabian Gong on October 7, 2021

    It's because him and Dum Dum brother Don Jr keep goin on Fox news telling on each other..idiots…GOD bless America 🇺🇸🙏👏🙌

  • Megan Bui on October 7, 2021

    Bc he hasn't been paid the bills. Haha!

  • Eleanore K. Leslie on October 11, 2021

    I guess the guy didn't want to lose his license to practice law.

  • Bill Grandone on October 19, 2021

    As a retired attorney I can tell you that there are three reasons that a lawyer quits. 1. the client will not co-operate with the lawyer or take his advice 2. the client wants the attorney to do something illegal or unethical, 3. the lawyer has not been paid. In Trump's case I would venture it is all of the above.
