Despite Resignations And Reports, Trump Says Lawyers 'Want To Represent Me'

Trump dismisses as 'fake news' reports of legal team trouble

President Donald Trump has decided not to hire two controversial lawyers to represent him in the Russian Federation investigation.

The announcement was made last Monday by Jay Sekulow, counsel to the President, but it appears he may have jumped the gun as it is being reported that "conflicts" will prevent diGenova from joining Trump's legal team.

Trump moved to beef up his legal team days before Dowd resigned when it was announced that former us attorney Joseph diGenova was coming aboard. "However, those conflicts do not prevent them from assisting the president in other legal matters".

Ms. Hicks's lawyer has strongly denied that suggestion, and White House aides said Mr. Corallo's assertion had come up in discussions with the president as he weighed whether to go ahead with Mr. diGenova and Ms. Toensing.

The announcement last week that diGenova was joining the legal team raised questions about Trump's strategy, given his choice of a former US attorney for the District of Columbia who also is a Fox News personality and has railed against the FBI and the Mueller investigation.

Trump also stated that it would be too expensive to add a new attorney at this point and that he is "very happy with my existing team".

Dowd had taken over the lead lawyer role last summer from NY attorney Marc Kasowitz, who has always been by Trump's side.

DiGenova and Toensing are married to each other and law partners. Mueller is leading the investigation into Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 president election.

Corallo was the spokesman for Trump's outside lawyers until last (northern) summer, when he resigned during another legal team shake-up. "Fame & fortune will NEVER be turned down by a lawyer, though some are conflicted", Trump posted on Twitter.

Trump signaled a change was coming earlier Sunday, when he tweeted: "Many lawyers and top law firms want to represent me in the Russian Federation case", and that he was satisfied with his current roster of attorneys.

Trump representatives have reached out to some of those firms again more recently, sources said. Other reports suggested the president had lost confidence in him. And now, it seems that, for whatever reason, Trump is having difficulty filling slots on his legal team.
