4. Recursive lawyering up.

Recursive, not exponential. It's lawyers, all the way down.

3. Lawyers upon lawyers. It's lawyers all the way down.

A well-known scientist (some say it was Bertrand Russell) once gave a public lecture on astronomy. He described how the earth orbits around the sun and how the sun, in turn, orbits around the center of a vast collection of stars called our galaxy. At the end of the lecture, a little old lady at the back of the room got up and said: "What you have told us is rubbish. The world is really a flat plate supported on the back of a giant tortoise." The scientist gave a superior smile before replying, "What is the tortoise standing on?" "You're very clever, young man, very clever," said the old lady. "But it's turtles all the way down."
(from A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking)

In Trump's White House it's lawyers instead of turtles, all the way down.

8. GMTA.

The best thing is there's no attorney-client privilege as between McGahn and SCROTUS because McGahn isn't Orange Foolius' personal lawyer - just like John Dean wrt Nixon.
