Trump’s Aide’s Lawyer Resigned From DOJ After Allegedly Biting A Stripper
The lawyer representing embattled Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was once a U.S. attorney working for the Department of Justice. He resigned under dubious circumstances, to say the least.
“After racking up a $900 bill at the Lipstik Club in south Miami-Dade County, [Kendall] Coffey allegedly bit a stripper known only as “Tiffany” during a dispute. He paid the bill with a credit card before being kicked out of the club, according to the Miami Herald. The paper also reported Coffey’s father later bought back the credit card slip for $1,200 in an attempt to conceal his alleged involvement,” Talking Points Memo reports.
“The Sentinel also reported Coffey went to the strip club because he was feeling “despondent” about a recent high-profile acquittal of two men charged with smuggling $2 billion of cocaine into the country over 13 years.”
The Hill reports:
