    Former George W. Bush administration solicitor general Ted Olson last week turned down President Trump’s entreaties to join his legal team for the Russia investigation. And now Olson is explaining what seems to be his reasoning. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2018/03/26/its-chaos-its-not-good-for-anything-after-snubbing-trump-ted-olson-admonishes-him/ “I think everybody would agree: This is turmoil, it’s chaos, it’s confusion, it’s not good for anything,” Olson said Monday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports.” “We always believe that there should be an orderly process, and, of course, government is not clean or orderly ever. But this seems to be beyond normal.”

    “Another white collar lawyer has turned down the opportunity to represent President Donald Trump, citing an unidentified conflict, as the President struggles to add to the legal team representing him in the special counsel investigation.” (CNN 4/15/18) https://www.cnn.com/2018/04/15/politics/white-collar-lawyer-trump-representation/index.html
    “People close to Trump contacted New York attorney Steven Molo, a former prosecutor who specializes in white collar defense and court room litigation, in recent weeks following the departure of attorney John Dowd from Trump’s personal legal team.
    Molo is only the latest attorney to receive an invitation to help Trump during special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the 2016 campaign and any possible dealings with Russia. Other lawyers who declined to join Trump’s team include former US Solicitor General Ted Olson; Emmet Flood, who’s worked for multiple presidents; Robert Bennett, Bill Clinton’s attorney in the Paula Jones litigation; and Bob Giuffra, of Sullivan & Cromwell.”

    White House leaps into damage control after Rudy Giuliani appeared to stun Fox News host Sean Hannity Wednesday night by revealing that Trump reimbursed his personal lawyer Michael Cohen for a $130,000 payment Cohen had made to the porn actress Stormy Daniels for her silence about an alleged affair – and that Trump “did know about the general arrangements” of the payment. https://www.politico.com/story/2018/05/03/white-house-trump-giuliani-damage-control-566048 Trump twittered that such a payment would not be a violation of campaign finance law and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who has been forced into clean-up mode on a regular basis, went on “Fox and Friends” to argue that the furor was misplaced. Giuliani, meanwhile, did another round of interviews — but may have caused even more trouble.
