    Co-hosts Michael Isikoff and Dan Klaidman rewind to the case of former Justice Department lawyer Michael Abbell who became an attorney for an infamous Colombian drug cartel and was soon accused of lobbying for the cartels in Washington. In 1995, he was indicted by federal prosecutors for his work with the Cali cartel. His case opened the door for federal prosecutors to investigate the conduct of defense lawyers and their communication with clients when the government had evidence of that crimes were committed. It’s a case that has new relevance as Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, continues to make news.
