The New York Times reports:
In appearing before the Jan. 6 committee last year, Cassidy Hutchinson, the former White House aide who recounted President Donald J. Trump’s conduct in the lead-up to the attacks on the Capitol, shared how her original lawyer had tried to influence her testimony.
While represented by that lawyer, Stefan Passantino, Ms. Cassidy told the committee she remembered little. But after hiring a different lawyer, she provided damaging details about Mr. Trump and disclosed that Mr. Passantino had pressured her to remain loyal and protect the former president.
Now, several dozen prominent legal figures, including past presidents of the American Bar Association and the District of Columbia Bar, are seeking to revoke Mr. Passantino’s license to practice law.
Read the full article. Passantino’s clients have included Marjorie Taylor Greene.
New: A group of prominent lawyers this morning filed an ethics complaint seeking the disbarment of Stefan Passantino, the Trump-aligned initial lawyer who initially represented Cassidy Hutchinson before the Jan 6 committee. https://t.co/2y8IAA8p9f
