According toABC News and Fox News, yesterday (Tuesday), US President Donald Trump hired attorney Marc Kasowitz to represent him in the Russian Federation probe.
By Monday, a list of finalists for the legal team had emerged, according to four people briefed on the discussions.
Known as a tough litigator, Kasowitz has represented the business mogul in numerous high-profile - and controversial - cases, long before Trump declared his candidacy for president. They demanded anonymity because they're not authorized to disclose personnel moves.
Instead, he's taken on an old friend (Trump's modus operandi when dealing with something important), who's shown his willingness to bare his teeth for Trump no matter the issue.
Kasowitz, managing partner at Kasowitz Benson Torres LLP, and his law firm have represented Trump in various cases for more than 15 years, according to his biography on the firm's website. Joe Lieberman, whom Trump interviewed as a potential head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Donald Trump, a man at the center of a plot from any number of fictional political dramas, is retaining his personal lawyer to help him navigate the sticky, complicated legal hell that is the current investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
A White House press official had no immediate comment. The last time that Kasowitz represented Trump was approximately 6 months ago, when 4 women claimed that he sexually harassed them.
Trump's comments about Lieberman also were made before his decision to hire an outside counsel.
There are several ongoing investigations into whether the Trump campaign had an improper relationship with Russian Federation. The White House also did not respond. "They're highly talented with great insight into the future", Trump said. "But the real victim isn't me". "You have to have somebody who is very nuanced".
White House officials however are committed to saying there has been no collusion between the Russian government and the Trump administration. There is one potential complication in Trump retaining Kasowitz.
That's why a key goal for the outside counsel will be to convince the president to act in his own interests, said Jack Quinn, who served as White House counsel for President Bill Clinton.
Kasowitz's appointment would have complicated the possible appointment of former Sen.
