The Wall Street Journal: Two new lawyers won’t join Trump’s legal team after all

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump won’t hire two previously announced lawyers to the team representing him in the Russia probe, a member of the group said Sunday, leaving the legal team short-handed as it negotiates a possible interview between the president and special counsel Robert Mueller.

Jay Sekulow, one of the president’s lawyers, said Sunday that Joseph diGenova and Victoria Toensing, a married couple who are founding partners of a law firm, wouldn’t join the legal team because of a conflict of interest. The team had already been seeking to add to its ranks in recent weeks and reached out to a number of lawyers to discuss joining.
