Report: Trump will hire Marc Kasowitz as private counsel in Russia probe

President Trump is expected to retain Marc Kasowitz as his personal attorney to represent him in the investigation, led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign, people close to Trump and Kasowitz told ABC News on Tuesday.

Kasowitz Benson Torres LLP has represented Trump in the restructuring of his business debt and defamation cases, and the firm's website says Kasowitz has worked with Trump "on a wide range of litigation matters for over 15 years." The firm also employs Joe Lieberman, reportedly Trump's top choice for FBI director, as a senior counsel. The White House has not responded to ABC News' request for comment.
