Joseph diGenova will no longer join Trump's legal team handling Russian Federation probe

DiGenova, a former US attorney, has been a fierce defender of Trump on television and accused the Federal Bureau of Investigation of trying to "frame" the president for nonexistent crimes.

The New York Times reports that Trump "has decided not to hire" two lawyers (including Joseph E. diGenova, who floated the conspiracy theory to Fox News that Trump is being framed by the FBI) whose appointments were recently announced as part of his team.

President Trump said on Twitter on that he is "happy with my existing team".

Last week, attorney John Dowd stepped down from his post on Trump's personal legal team, shortly after Trump's hiring of former federal prosecutor Joseph diGenova, who has previously alleged on Fox News that the Russian Federation probe is part of a "brazen plot" by a secret group of FBI agents looking to "frame" the president with a false crime.

There's obviously a lot more to this than meets the eye, as both diGenova and Toensing are veteran Washington infighters with a detailed cemetery map.

Trump has denounced the investigation as a "witch hunt".

Toensing also represents former Trump campaign national co-chair Sam Clovis, who has faced scrutiny for his connection to campaign foreign policy team member George Papadopoulos, two sources said.

President Donald Trump will not be adding two new lawyers to the legal team defending him in the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation after all, one of the president's attorneys said today.

City Priorities Shine Through in FY18 Omnibus Spending Bill
The Senate passed the bill by a vote of 65-32 after a heated session stretched into the early hours on Friday. All military personnel get a 2.4% pay hike in the bill while civilian federal employees get a 1.9% pay raise.

Toensing, who is married to DiGenova, is representing Mark Corallo, the former spokesman for Trump's legal team. "Fame & fortune will NEVER be turned down by a lawyer, though some are conflicted", Mr. Trump tweeted Sunday.

On Sunday, U.S. President Donald Trump declared that a search to find a lawyer to replace John Dowd would not be an issue and that law firms would line up to take the case.

Corallo on Thursday said that he had formally waived any conflict involving Toensing's work for Trump.

Several investigations into Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 United States presidential election have been launched since Donald Trump's victory in the presidential election.

Trump had sought $20 billion or more to pay for construction of a wall along the U.S.

"Much can be done with the $1.6 Billion given to building and fixing the border wall", Trump said.

"Work will start immediately", he tweeted. He blamed Democrats for not agreeing to a bigger wall deal with a companion agreement to block the deportation of 1.8 million young people who years ago were brought illegally into the country by their parents.

"Build WALL through M!", with Mexico paying for it, Trump implored, revisiting one of his favorite pledges from the 2016 campaign.
