Anti-Trump Democratic Lawyer Arrested

A high-profile lawyer from a law firm that represents the Democratic National Committee and is suing former President Trump on behalf of congressional Democrats has been detained for possessing child pornography.

Lawyer Specialized in Child Sex Abuse Cases

The arrested anti-Trump Democrat lawyer – Michael T. Dolce – specializes in cases that involve fighting child sex abuse, The Gateway Pundit reported.

He was busted by agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation on March 15, 2023, at his apartment in West Palm Beach, Florida.

According to the criminal complaint filed by the FBI, the investigators found almost 2,000 images depicting child sex abuse on devices owned by Michael Dolce. Some of those showed sexual abuse of girls as young as five, Local 10 reported.

53-year-old Dolce’s LinkedIn profile showed he was a partner at law firm Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll Pllc. However, reports reveal the website of Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll no longer lists him as a partner.

The anti-Trump lawyer’s arrest was announced last week; he was expected to appear in federal court in West Palm Beach amid a number of child pornography charges.

Law Firm ‘Stunned’

According to the affidavit for his arrest, the detectives found that Dolce was using peer-to-peer software, and “actively downloading” material of child sexual abuse.

The investigators also confiscated the lawyer’s phone, which had a background image of a female aged 16-25 having sex with two males. A law firm spokesperson told Local 10 News that Dolce was no longer employed by the company.

The spokesperson added the firm was cooperating with the investigation, yet “stunned and saddened” because of the “appalling allegations” against its former partner.

The charges against Dolce were announced on behalf of the US Attorney’s Office in the Southern Florida District in a press release by US Attorney Markenzy Lapointe and Special FBI Agent Jeffrey Veltri.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant US Attorney Gregory Schiller.
