According to new reports, Michael Nadler, the son of Democrat lawmaker Jerry Nadler, is employed with a law firm that has filed several lawsuits against President Trump and his administration in an effort to access private information and documents.
Additionally, the firm, Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP is also reported to have represented CNN’s Jim Acosta in his lawsuit against the president and the White House following the revocation of his press credentials.
Now, news of Nadler’s son’s involvement with the firm has conservative pundits speculating that there could be a possible conflict of interest.
From Big League Politics:
Democrat congressman Jerry Nadler, leading the investigative charge against President Donald Trump, has a son whose firm is trying to get access to Trump documents for their clients in numerous lawsuits against President Trump.
“Congressman Jerry Nadler has a big conflict,” our source tells Big League Politics in Washington, D.C.
“His son (Michael Nadler) got a job with Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP in 2018. That’s convenient because Jerry Nadler and the Democrats just won control of the House in 2018. Gibson Dunn & Crutcher hire Jerry’s son and Gibson Dunn & Crutcher are the main Nemesis against Trump and the Trump Administration on numerous lawsuits. Now the Nadler family will gain access to thousands of Trump documents via Jerry’s subpoenas!,” our insider stated.
Gibson Dunn represented CNN’s Jim Acosta in his lawsuit against the Trump White House after President Trump revoked Jim Acosta’s press credentials for creating a disturbance in a press briefing and making physical contact with a female White House intern. In December Gibson Dunn announced that it was representing the Center for Reproductive Rights in its lawsuit against the Trump State Department concerning abortion language in Trump administration human rights reports. Gibson Dunn’s global co-chairman Ted Boutros sued President Trump in a bid to protect the DACA Dreamer program.
Such an arrangement — Jerry Nadler investigating Trump with his son’s firm trying to get access to documents in other cases — violates ethics rules for federal investigators.
