Presidential Law Project

presidential-law-project-logoWorking through the legal system, the Presidential Law Project acts to ensure that the President of the United States and executive officials comply with the Constitution and laws.  We use our knowledge and experience in the law to strategically prosecute cases, in courts and government agencies throughout the United States, that promote executive accountability. We investigate the President and other officials in the executive branch in order to expose illegal activity and to promote honesty in governance. By standing on the side of the people, and against the President when necessary, we defend and promote freedom, justice and equality for all.

We have worked individually and with our clients to initiate dozens of criminal, ethics, civil rights and election law cases against powerful people in government and politics. These include cases against Donald Trump, The Trump Organization, The Donald Trump Foundation, Eric Trump, The Eric Trump Foundation, Paul Manafort, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, Representative Dana Rohrabacher, Representative Ed Royce, Senator Jim Risch, Judge Roy Moore, IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig, President Trump’s Attorney Jay Sekulow and current Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanugh.

Governor Rick Scott of Florida assigned State Attorney Stephen Russell to investigate our complaint against Donald Trump and Pam Bondi, Florida’s former Attorney General. That complaint concerned an illegal $25,000 payment made by Trump and The Donald Trump Foundation to a political group maintained by Bondi. Shortly after receiving the $25,000 payment, Bondi announced that she would not take any action to assist Florida consumers who were victimized by Trump University. Although the State Attorney declined to take action on our complaint for partisan reasons, the multiple complaints that we filed in connection with this case brought needed publicity to violations of the law involving Trump and Bondi. Our complaint against Bondi with the Florida Bar, related to this incident, remains under review as of June 18, 2019.

The Connecticut Judiciary initiated proceedings against Paul J. Manafort, Jr., Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, in response to our multiple complaints against Manafort. Based on the allegations in our complaints, Manafort permanently resigned from the practice of law in Connecticut and was permanently disbarred.
