President Trump Lawyers Up

White House Counsel Pat Cipollone has hired a team of new lawyers, seventeen in total, to help prepare President Trump’s defense against a Democratic Congress and Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Reports are that the new attorneys are working on keeping Trump’s “confidential discussions with top advisers” from being publicly disclosed, whether to Congressional Democrats or Robert Mueller’s investigators.

Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein is Ready to Leave

William Barr, President Trump’s pick for Attorney General, has confirmation hearings scheduled for next week. Reports are that once confirmed, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will be resigning.

There are no specific dates or plans, but it seems that Rosenstein’s resignation is voluntary. The question now is how this affects the Mueller probe.

Is Rosenstein leaving because Mueller is close to finalizing his investigation? Mueller just received a six-month extension of the grand jury.

Assuming Mueller’s investigation does end soon, the next issue is whether Mueller’s report would be made public. That decision would be left to Barr. Trump was asked by the media if Mueller’s report would be made public, and the President failed to give a definitive answer.

While Barr has said in interviews with members of Congress that he will allow the Mueller probe to proceed, he did write an unsolicited memo to Rosenstein stating the opposite.
