Do the prominent lawyers representing President Donald Trump, his family and his administration—many of them Jewish—have a duty to speak out in the wake of his comments about the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia?

The president called racism “evil” and singled out the “KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups” in prepared remarks on Monday. But he earned widespread condemnation a day later when he placed blame on “both sides” and the “alt-left” for the clashes that left a 32-year-old counterprotester dead on Saturday.
