Former President Donald Trump is having trouble finding a good lawyer to represent him, according to a new Washington Post report.

Another attorney, speaking anonymously, also spoke about the challenges he faces as a Trump representative. They said Trump would tweet about the Mueller investigation during his presidency, against the advice of his legal team. He told The Washington Post he was worried about whether he would be paid.

“In the old days, he would say that the companies he represented had an advantage because they could advertise, but that’s not the case today,” said the former Trump lawyer and then a vehement critic of the former president. Michael Cohen said.

“He’s also a very difficult client in that he’s always pushing the boundaries, listening little to sound legal advice, and asking you to do things that aren’t ethically or legally appropriate,” Cohen said. added Mr.

Trump spokesperson Taylor Gravitch told the Post that Trump’s legal team includes figures like Jim Trusty and Evan Corcoran.

Trump is currently represented by Trusty and Corcoran, as well as New Jersey parking attorney Alina Hubba and former One America News anchor Christina Bob.

Mr. Trump faces several major legal challenges this year. These include an investigation in New York into whether Trump’s organization violated banking, insurance and tax laws, and whether it engaged in financial fraud. Trump is the fifth to have defended himself more than 440 times during depositions in the case.

A Justice Department investigation into whether Trump mishandled classified documents could also lead to criminal charges against him. Last Monday, while executing a search warrant in President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago, the FBI removed 11 sets of classified documents. According to the warrant, the Justice Department is looking into whether Trump violated three federal laws, including the Espionage Act.

A spokesman for Trump’s presidency did not immediately respond to an insider’s request for comment.
