Joe Lieberman is senior counsel at Kasowitz, Benson, Torres and Friedman, and is one of four names on Trump’s short list to replace James Comey as FBI director. Trump’s relationship with the New York law firm goes back years.
The lede for the Wikipedia article for Kasowitz, Benson, Torres and Friedman includes the information that “Notable clients have included Donald Trump…”
So there was a small audience standing by with a prediction “Look for them to edit that Wikipedia entry in 3,2,1…”
And the internet did not disappoint. Trump’s name was removed from the list of clients within hours. The edit war was carried out from an IP in Horton, Alabama.
Oh my, and the thread has rumors about KBT&F’s ties to Sberbank, Russia’s largest state-run bank, and Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska, who bought Trump’s mansion for $95M … who could have seen that one coming?
[And what is that ampersand doing in the title….]
UPDATE: the firm is now known as Kasowitz Benson Torres LLP [source], since partner David Friedman accepted a Trump appointment as ambassador to Israel. Friedman was confirmed by the senate on March 23, 2016, and his name removed from the firm the next day. See official website.
The article has now been protected from IP edits, but Wikipedia has yet to discover the correct name of the firm.
Ooooh! and look what else the little Alabama IP has been editing…removing some negative sources from the article about Trump White House advisor Stephen Miller –quickly reverted. And Miller is from …Alabama.
