Donald Trump’s Personal Lawyer Has Lawyered Up Amid Russia Probe

Vice President Mike Pence and campaign adviser Michael Caputo have also hired outside legal counsel.

President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer has hired his own legal representation to help him during the ongoing investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, NBC News’ Katy Tur first reported.

Michael Cohen, who has served as Trump’s personal attorney for years, confirmed to The Washington Post that he has retained former assistant U.S. attorney Stephen M. Ryan. Ryan currently works for the Washington-based firm McDermott, Will & Emery.

Other Trump associates ― notably, Michael Caputo, the senior communications adviser on Trump’s campaign, and Vice President Mike Pence ― have also hired outside legal counsel to assist them during the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller. Pence called the move “very routine.”

Caputo has hired Dennis Vacco as counsel. House Intel is trying to schedule him for mid-July. Source says Caputo wants open hearing.

Cohen is slated to testify in front of the House Intelligence Committee on Sept. 5, according to Tur, noting that the delay reportedly stems from “scheduling and logistics.”
