    How to learn this sentence???

    "Many Democrats dislike Gonzales because he is viewed, rightly or wrongly, as a mouthpiece for the president, because he was long his trusted lawyer. "


    I am baffled with the last clause "……he was long his trusted lawyer"

    how to explain the word "long" here? what role does it play in this context?

    help me to analyze this sentence, thanks!

    It means that Gonzales was the President's (private) lawyer for a long time.

    Is that what you wanted to know?
