Legal Huddle Before the Trip

President Donald Trump convened his legal team on Thursday to discuss the escalating investigation into whether his campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.

One White House official said the discussion, which came the day before Trump leaves for his first trip abroad since taking office, centered around the nuts and bolts of how the investigation would work – and how the administration will need to handle the inquiry.

Among those in attendance was longtime Trump Organization attorney Michael Cohen, who came down from New York to attend.


A perfect match for Trump.
White House Counsel Don McGahn and his team, one official said, is urging the White House – and Trump – to be cautious in its comments with a special prosecutor involved.
They'll have to physically gag him.
McGahn has begun explaining to aides in detail about records retention and potential requests, two people familiar with the conversations say.
Shredders ready?
White House spokespeople declined to comment.
They're catching on.
