The husband and wife legal team of Joseph diGenova and Victoria Toensing will not be joining President Donald Trump's personal legal team representing him in Special CounselRobert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation after a determination that their firm's existing work presents a conflict.
The duo, Joe DiGenova and Victoria Toensing, apparently have a conflict of interest that prevents them defending Trump in the special counsel investigation by Robert Mueller, according to The New York Times.
President Trump said Sunday he remains happy with his legal team representing him in the special counsel's investigation into whether there was collusion with Russian Federation during the 2016 campaign. "However, those conflicts do not prevent them from assisting the president in other legal matters".
"The President looks forward to working with them, " he added.
Two people told The Timesthat Trump ultimately didn't hire diGenova and Toensing because they didn't have chemistry with him. DiGenova declined to comment further.
The president said Friday at the White House he was "very disappointed" in the package, in part because it didn't fully pay for his border wall.

Trump's legal team shakeup comes as he weighs whether to agree to an interview with Mueller. He's also examining whether the president obstructed justice by trying to impede the investigation. Trump tweeted Sunday that much can be done with the money and it's "just a down payment". "Fame & fortune will NEVER be turned down by a lawyer, though some are conflicted", the president wrote, without mentioning diGenova or Toensing by name.
Trump has professed satisfaction with his lawyers before, prior to previous shakeups.
Trump says on Twitter on Sunday that he's "happy with my existing team". Three days later, diGenova's hiring has unravelled.
