President’s lawyer jumps into racial controversy by forwarding inflammatory email
President Trump’s lawyer on Wednesday fanned an already-incendiary racial debate by forwarding an email advocating protection of some Confederate monuments and claiming that the protest group Black Lives Matter had been infiltrated by terrorists.
THE FUNNY STUFF:
Trump’s lawyer John Dowd told The Washington Post he “shares a lot of things with people” and said it was unfair to equate forwarding an email with espousing its contents.
Dowd stressed he was a history buff who has studied Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, whose role in the Civil War is memorialized by statues around the nation.
