He is a lawyer
so what he says doesn't matter and has nothing to do with truth. It only has to do with protecting his clients interest (making more money) regardless of what the actual truth is.
Since when do lawyers work for the truth? They are 'law'yers so what they do does not involve the truth unless it helps them.
There's the image of a lawyer and then there's the reality.
They operate under the law, and what is legal. So if its legal to seed false government provided information with an order to lie or conceal something, they will..
