White House looking to expand legal team amid Russian Federation inquiry


Respected Washington attorney Emmet Flood met with Trump in the Oval Office earlier in the week, according to The New York Times.

Flood also represented Vice President Dick Cheney in the civil lawsuit brought by former Central Intelligence Agency agent Valerie Plame and spent two years in the White House Counsel's office during the George W. Bush administration.

In response to the report, Trump tweeted Sunday that he wasn't adding another lawyer to "help out" and accused the Times of intentionally writing a "false story". Mr. Trump's personal lawyers have been handling negotiations with Mr. Mueller over the terms of a presidential interview. Wrong. I am VERY happy with my lawyers, John Dowd, Ty Cobb and Jay Sekulow.

In addition to defending Clinton at the most precarious moment of his political life, Flood has represented former President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney. He passed on an opportunity last summer to represent Trump, according to the Times. Flood was one of a half-dozen top litigators Trump reportedly tried to hire to replace Kasowitz a year ago, but they all turned down the job.

Dowd told Reuters on Saturday that he had no knowledge of Flood possibly joining the White House legal team, and that Cobb was not leaving as far as he knew.

The Times reported that Trump is considering adding the lawyer that helped Bill ClintonWilliam (Bill) Jefferson ClintonShould the Rob Porter outcome set the standard?

Maggie Haberman, the New York Times White House correspondent who co-wrote the story with Michael Schmidt, immediately responded. Marc Kasowitz, a NY litigator with a combative reputation who had represented Trump in business disputes, was replaced as head of Trump's personal legal team by John M. Dowd, who had deeper Washington experience.
