President Donald Trump's attorney announced that a veteran Washington husband-and-wife legal duo will not join Trump's team handling the Russia probe.
"The President is disappointed that conflicts prevent Joe diGenova and Victoria Toensing from joining the President's Special Counsel legal team," his lawyer, Jay Sekulow, said in a statement. "However, those conflicts do not prevent them from assisting the President in other legal matters. The President looks forward to working with them."
Sekulow had announced that diGenova, a former US attorney for the District of Columbia, would be joining the team, and sources told CNN that he and Toensing met with Trump. One source said the President liked the pair's message, but was not convinced they were right for the legal jobs.
