""The attorney might be subject to disciplinary proceedings if his own view was Trump was lying in that in Court stated "belief."Why? It's not the attorney's job to weigh the credibility of his client's testimony. His obligation is to refrain from presenting arguments to the court that he knows are false. But he doesn't have to, or even get to, substitute his own assessment of a client's credibility for that of the court (or jury)."I guess we have different views on an attorney's obligations when the client lies to the Court or in the course of judicial proceedings whether it's the attorney knows the client is lying or has a reasonable belief the client is lying to the Court, or lying under oath, and if the attorney is being called upon to repeat or even obliquely vouch for the lie. Let the disciplinary committee sort it out then.Ken
