President Donald Trump has hired top lawyer, John Dowd to his personal legal team as investigations into his administration continue to gain grounds.
John Dowd investigated Pete Rose for Major League Baseball and represented John McCain during the Keating Five Scandal.
Dowd, a 76-year-old former prosecutor Marc Kasowitz, Trump’s longtime New York lawyer, Mark Bowe, who works with Kasowitz, and Jay Sekulow.
Trump and his aides are facing multiple investigations.
Prominent among them is one by special counsel Robert Mueller investigating if Russian leaders tried to meddle in last year’s election.
Another involves his son-in-law, Jared Kushner’s link to the Kremlin during Trump’s campaign.
The probe has since expanded to also look at whether Trump obstructed justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey, who was leading the broader Russia investigation and by allegedly pressuring intelligence officials to interfere in the probe.
Dowd has however not been spotted in the building yet, according to one West Wing aide.
