Now that a special prosecutor is handling the investigation into possible collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign, the president’s advisers and associates are suggesting he hire an outside attorney.
According to a number of reports, President Trump’s aides are concerned with memos written by former FBI Director James Comey. Once again, all of the reports cite “unnamed sources” who say that one of the memos indicate that Trump asked Comey to halt his agency’s investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
Other presidents, like former President Bill Clinton, have hired lawyers to help navigate difficult legal situations. Although the move is not without precedent, sources say Trump hasn’t decided whether he will hire an outside lawyer yet, but that he has indicated he may move in that direction.
