Donald Trump hires the best people (sarcasm). We’ve seen his disastrous recruiting talents play out over the last few months, resulting in several resignations, terminations, and criminal activity. Trump’s team is so corrupt and flawed, we can only expect that this incompetence branches out into other areas of their lives.
To add to the insanity of Trump’s team, it’s just been discovered that the wife of one of Trump’s close confidants has been arrested after being caught hooking up with an inmate. Whose wife was it? Ironically, the wife of his ethics lawyer. Really, you can’t make this stuff up.
Teresa Burchfield, the wife of attorney Bobby R. Burchfield, was arrested earlier this week outside of the Faquier County Adult Detention Center, after she was caught having sex with one of the inmates in the parking lot. Burchfield is the ethics attorney for the Donald J. Trump Revocable Trust, and handles the ethical issues of Trump’s businesses.
According to deputies, Ms. Burchfield and 23-year-old the inmate were discovered in the backseat of a car. Upon discovery, the inmate – who was authorized to work outside of the jail – got out of the vehicle and gave the arresting officer a “bag of brown pills, that he claims to be workout pills.” The inmate also had several “unauthorized articles” such as cigarettes, clothing, and vitamin supplements, which had been given to him by Ms. Burchfield. The inmate stated that he’d been meeting with Ms. Burchfield for about a month. Dept. J. B. Thorpe wrote:
The defendant was caught in the backseat of her vehicle with an inmate. When the inmate exited the vehicle, he handed me a bag of brown pills (capsules), that he claims to be workout pills.”
Ms. Burchfield was arrested and is out on $5,000 bond. If convicted, she could get up to a year in prison as well as a $2,500 fine.
