Britney Spears' lawyer slams Kevin Federline over 'cruel' and 'abhorrent' Instagram post sharing videos of singer appearing to argue with her sons

  Britney Spears' lawyer slams Kevin Federline over 'cruel' and 'abhorrent' Instagram post sharing videos of singer appearing to argue with her sons Mathew Rosengart told People that Britney Spears has requested for her disagreement with her sons to be a private matter.Spears and her ex-husband are currently in a feud after Federline spoke out about the pop star's relationship with her sons, Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden, 15. Last week, he told the Daily Mail that the boys "have decided they are not seeing her right now.

Trump impeachment trial lawyer David Schoen pushed back on reports that former President Donald Trump can’t find decent lawyers to work for him — seconds after revealing he turned down an offer to join Trump’s current team.

Schoen, who represented Trump at his second impeachment trial, was anchor John Berman‘s guest on Thursday morning’s edition of CNN’s New Day. Schoen made it very clear that spiritually, he is still Team Trump by employing a steady stream of familiar patter in defense of Trump over the investigation for crimes involving the Espionage Act that includes the FBI search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort home last week.

Kinzinger on his public feud with Trump over election lies and the GOP's 'creepy' obsession with the former president: 'He won in the short term'

  Kinzinger on his public feud with Trump over election lies and the GOP's 'creepy' obsession with the former president: 'He won in the short term' "He won in the short term, at least," Kinzinger said of Trump. "There's no use in pretending somehow I scored some major victory and saved the party."The House select committee investigating the January 6, 2021, riot has hosted six public hearings so far revealing their findings, which also included public damning testimony from former staffers in the Trump administration.

But early in the interview, Schoen revealed that he was offered a spot on the current Trump legal team “a couple of months ago” but turned it down.

“I was approached a couple of months ago about being a liaison with the Justice Department. It wasn’t for me. It doesn’t suit my skillset. I wasn’t particularly interested in that,” Schoen said.

Berman pressed for a more precise reason, but Schoen stuck to the skillset thing.

Berman then asked Sxhoen about the Washington Post report detailing the motley makeup of Trump’s current legal team and reported difficulty finding lawyers because of Trump’s erratic behavior and failure to pay.

Schoen told Berman he thinks “it’s a great honor for anyone” to represent Trump and gushed effusively about his former client:

Rudy Giuliani informed he is a target of Georgia election investigation

  Rudy Giuliani informed he is a target of Georgia election investigation Giuliani was a huge proponent of Trump's claims of voter fraud in the 2020 election, which saw now-President Joe Biden defeat the ex-president.The House select committee investigating the January 6, 2021, riot has hosted six public hearings so far revealing their findings, which also included public damning testimony from former staffers in the Trump administration.

JOHN BERMAN: The Washington Post published a story that suggested that Donald Trump is having a hard time finding enough or the right lawyers to represent him here. Is that something you see as happening in this case?

DAVID SCHOEN: I hope not, and I wouldn’t think so…

I was approached out of the blue on this thing. I considered it a great honor to represent Donald Trump. And I saw at the time media pieces saying he was having a hard time getting lawyers. I had some of the greatest lawyers in the country willing to help me prepare for the impeachment.

But there are some people who at that time had been around President Trump giving advice and vetting lawyers and wanting to insinuate themselves into the situation who I think gave bad advice. And so in this case, they nixed some of these people because they hadn’t been vetted by them and so on, and sort of making themselves too self-important.

This Trump-backed candidate is vying to defeat Liz Cheney in a heated Republican primary for Wyoming's sole congressional seat

  This Trump-backed candidate is vying to defeat Liz Cheney in a heated Republican primary for Wyoming's sole congressional seat Meet Harriet Hageman, the Trump-backed candidate challenging Rep. Liz Cheney for Wyoming's only congressional seat."We have serious questions about the 2020 election," Hageman retorted on the debate stage on June 30. She then rehashed misleading theories about Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg funding Democratic turnout and pointed to right-wing commentator Dinesh D'Souza's widely debunked "2000 Mules" movie that promoted voter fraud allegations.

So I think it’s a great honor for anyone to represent President Trump, any former president or president of the United States. The issues are fascinating in the case, and that’s my take on it. I think anyone would be honored, quite frankly.

JOHN BERMAN: Is he an easy guy to work for?

DAVID SCHOEN: He’s been incredibly gracious to me on every opportunity we’ve ever spoken. I read the reports in the media, and again, you know, I didn’t know any of these folks before I got involved. Every time I’ve spoken to him, he’s been incredibly gracious and complimentary, and I very much appreciate that.
