3. This information is out of date. Wikipedia promptly dealt with the problem.

 

The vandalism (scrubbing of valid information) was done by anonymous IP's, i.e., people who were not registered Wikipedians. In response, the page was semi-protected. That means that anons and very recently registered users won't be able to edit the page. A Wikipedian also edited the article to add a citation for the fact of the firm's representation of Trump.

IOW, while some people are getting all upset, the Wikipedia volunteers are going about the business of maintaining and improving the encyclopedia.
