Trump Jr Grows More Worried Amid Russia Scandal Hires Additional Lawyers To Defend Him
These past two weeks have been filled with Russia scandal news surrounding Donald Trump and his son Donald Trump Jr.
According to an ABC News report, Trump Jr. has just added Karina Lynch, a lawyer with congressional experience, to his legal team.
Lynch confirmed her hiring to ABC News. Also according to the network, Trump Jr. hired Alan Futerfas as a lawyer after reports that detailed meetings last year between him and a Russian lawyer.
Both Trump Jr. and former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort – both of which attended a meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in June 2016 – have been asked to publicly testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
On Friday the committee said that Trump Jr. and Manafort had agreed to negotiate whether to be interviewed by the panel in its Russia investigation.
