Happy Wednesday Trump Watchers! We’ve made it halfway through the week, which is already approaching a high level of Trumpiness: The nation gathered around the TV Sunday night to watch a porn star tell Anderson Cooper about her affair with the president, and she then sued his lawyer for defamation. The Trump administration also added a citizenship question to the 2020 Census, sparking immediate legal action from California. Oh, and through all this, the president can’t seem to get a lawyer to represent him in the special counsel’s Russia probe, and that’s what I’d like to focus on today.

But first, I wanted to share with you, dear readers, that this week’s Trump Watch will be my last, as I’ll be leaving The National Law Journal for a new career opportunity at the end of the week. I’m not crying, you’re crying! But for real, it’s been an honor and a blast to talk Trump with you all over the past few months. Thank you for reading, and please keep in touch! You can always find me on Twitter: @CoganSchneier.
