Law’s Jonathan Entin says Trump faces at least five trial dates during the next year

How Donald Trump’s many legal troubles are all starting to intersect

PoliticoJonathan Entin, the David L. Brennan Professor Emeritus of Law, said that as the former president faces at least five trial dates over the next year, his actions in some cases may be used against him in others. When a client is facing multiple legal challenges, “you have to be conscious of what the client might say that could rebound to the client’s detriment down the road,” Entin said. “This is really a complicated situation for the lawyer because the lawyer can’t just say, ‘Be quiet for the next six months to a year.’”
