Two attorneys who were supposed to join President Donald Trump's personal legal team this week will not be joining the president's depleted staff of lawyers due to "conflicts," reports the New York Times.


In a statement issued Sunday morning, Trump attorney Jay Sekulow said former Fox pundit Joe diGenova and his wife, Victoria Toensing, will not be working with the president in an official capacity.

“The president is disappointed that conflicts prevent Joe diGenova and Victoria Toensing from joining the president’s special counsel legal team,” Sekulow explained. “However, those conflicts do not prevent them from assisting the president in other legal matters. The president looks forward to working with them.”

Earlier in the week it was reported that Trump didn't care for diGenova after meeting with him in person in the Oval Office.
