Norm Pattis: Lawyer Belatedly Realizes That The Government Lies

The Connecticut Law Tribune


I've never understood why some criminal defense lawyers feel the need to make a great public display about how they only represent those whom they believe are truly innocent. There's a self-indulgent, almost moralistic quality to such declarations that render the lawyers untrustworthy. And hence my problem with Sidney Powell's otherwise excellent book, Licensed to Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice (Brown. 2014).

    Why so surprised?
    Of course Politicians lie to get elected, and as members of the government they lie to stay in office. Government by and large cannot be less corrupt then the people we elect to office. We get what we deserve.
