The ranks of former White House ethics lawyers available to comment on the ongoing controversies engulfing President Donald Trump’s administration has just grown by one — an attorney who’s certain to offer a much different perspective than the most prominent figures now ensconced as seemingly permanent fixtures on cable news.

After almost a year in the White House counsel’s office tackling a raft of ethics and financial disclosure issues, James Schultz resigned last week and is returning to private practice at the Philadelphia-based law firm where he previously worked, Cozen O’Connor.

Schultz insists his exit is unrelated to any of those myriad controversies, but simply triggered by a desire to get back to private law work and back to Philadelphia, where his family has remained

At first I misread this as “Trump White House ethics lawyer exists” which would certainly surprise a lot of people – and I clicked to read the article fully expecting something like “he was hiding behind the couch the whole time”..
