He retired from the practice of law but neither he nor Michelle are members of the bar. Both voluntarily withdrew from the bar. There is no public record of their reasons. The notorious Left Wing Obama adoring FactCheck.org claims neither withdrew as a result of charges that were made public.
That’s LawyerSpeak. Why would two people voluntarily withdraw from the practice of law? It doesn’t pass the smell test. We know deals are made every day for people to withdraw to avoid other consequences. Without a law license the Obamas are prohibited from practicing law. They cannot give legal advice without violating the law. They cannot claim they are lawyers because the law requires people to be members of the bar to practice law. That’s the law.
