Trump hires another attorney weeks after his lawyer sent out typo-filled criminal defense

Published

President Donald Trump has hired another attorney just a few weeks after his existing attorney, Marc Kasowitz, sent out a press release riddled with typos.

According to Politico, John Dowd was hired to be an additional resource to Kasowitz. The new high-profile lawyer represented John McCain during the Keating Five Scandal. He was accused of pressuring the DEA for McCain’s wife Cindy’s drug charges.

Dowd is a 76-year-old former prosecutor who has worked in Washington for decades. The legal team now consists of Kasowitz, longtime Trump lawyer Mark Bowe and Jay Sekulow.

There are currently three investigations involving Trump, two in Congress and one with a special prosecutor. News came last night of Vice President Mike Pence hiring an attorney and even lower level White House staffers must hire attorneys that are costing them $1500 an hour fee. Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen has also hired his own attorney to navigate his ties to Trump.

It’s unclear if Trump hired the attorney specifically to fix typos or simply to add another approach to his defense.
