Harvard legal scholar details why Trump ‘is his own worst enemy’ — and his lawyers are his second

A legal scholar and MSNBC analyst explained Monday that Donald Trump’s major problems with the law are largely self-created.

“The president has three basic problems,” Lawfare editor-in-chief Benjamin Wittes said during a discussion about Trump’s legal issues. “Number one, the facts are bad for him. Number two, he has bad lawyers. And number three, he is a terrible client.”

Trump, Wittes noted, “is his own worst enemy.”

“His lawyers are his second worst enemy,” the Brookings Institution co-director noted.

He then offered the president some tongue-in-cheek legal advice.

“He could shut up and stop digging himself in deeper,” Wittes said. “He could also, of course, say things that are true, rather than continue to say things that are false, which has a way of making all situations worse for you.”
