Legal Experts Weigh In On Donald Trump Jr.'s Attourney-Client Privilege Claim

Donald Trump Jr. invoked attorney-client privilege during his testimony before the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday. He argued that because lawyers were present during one of his meetings with his father, President Donald Trump, he could refuse to answer lawmakers' questions about their conversation. The conversation between Trump Jr. and his father was about a meeting Trump Jr. had at Trump Tower in June 2016 with a Russian lawyerto get "dirt" on Hillary Clinton. Lawmakers and legal experts derided Trump Jr.'s invocation of attorney-client privilege, noting on social media and in news outlets that the mere presence of a lawyer does not make a conversation protected. "A lawyer isn't a walking cone of silence," Stanford law professor David Alan Sklansky told Vox.
