Trump brings on lawyer Ty Cobb to wrangle Russian Federation probes response

Trump names Cobb as White House special counsel

White House press secretary Sean Spicer contradicted President Donald Trump Monday when he insisted that a meeting Donald Trump Jr. had with a Russian lawyer in the months leading up to the election was about adoption policy.

Kushner's lawyers told Yahoo that leaving the foreign names out of the initial submission was a mistake.

As concern over collusion with Russian officials reaches a fever pitch, President Donald Trump scored the lowest approval rating for his first six months in office of any USA president in the last 70 years, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll made public Sunday.

The legal steps come after the White House defense team faces growing criticism over allegations that it has messed up the president's defense.

Some Hogan Lovells lawyers are involved in litigation challenging President Donald Trump's temporary travel ban.

Kushner, who filed his SF-86 national security questionnaire in mid-January, has filed three updates to his original submission, according to the Washington Post.

President Donald Trump speaks during a "Made in America", product showcase featuring items created in each of the US 50 states, at the White House, Monday, July 17, 2017, in Washington.

Not only is Trump stunningly unpopular, but his support has already been reduced to base levels, and the bad news for this White House is that there is plenty of room for him to drop.

Trump, known for placing great value on relationships and loyalty, appears to be assembling a team of Russian Federation aides familiar with Mueller and how he operates. CNN said the trip "annoyed at least a few folks back at the White House, who chafe at the way Jared and Ivanka leave town in times of crisis".

Several investigations about Russian influence on the election have been underway: a counter-intelligence investigation by the FBI, hearings by the Senate Intelligence Committee and the House Intelligence Committee, and inquiries about possible links and financial ties between the Kremlin and Trump associates. Trump has repeatedly denied that his team colluded with Russian Federation.

Trump Jr. invited his brother-in-law, Kushner, and then-Trump campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, to the June 2016 meeting with the Russian government attorney, according to Trump Jr.'s emails.

The New York Times revealed the Trump Tower meeting about two weeks later, and Futerfas put out statements defending Trump Jr.

President Donald Trump speaks during a campaign rally at the Treasure Island Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, Oct. 8, 2015.

Gorelick, a Democrat who began working with Kushner after advising Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson during his confirmation hearings, denied reports that she was quitting Kushner's team.
