Two top Trump attorneys are in the limelight this week, and it’s not for their outstanding job representing Trump or his business interests.
Bobby Burchfield, who serves as the Trump Organization’s top ethics counsel, and is a longtime Republican attorney, just saw his wife arrested on Thursday for having sex with an inmate at a local jail house in Warrenton, Virgina. Authorities found her in the backseat of a vehicle that was located right next to the Fauquier County Adult Detention Center.
“The defendant was caught in the backseat of her vehicle with an inmate…,” Dept. J. B. Thorpe wrote in Burchfield’s criminal complaint. “When the inmate exited the vehicle, he handed me a bag of brown pills (capsules), that he claims to be workout pills.”
After the two were discovered, the inmate, Hartman said, was found in possession of cigarettes, clothes, vitamin supplements and other “unauthorized articles alleged to have been obtained from the female.”

This had apparently been happening for about a month according to court filings, and they were only recently found out after local prison guards noticed “suspicious” activity in the car.
Burchfield was charged with delivering unauthorized articles to a prisoner and was released with class 1 misdemeanor charges on a $5,000 bond.
