Trump Jr. adds D.C. attorney to his legal team

Donald Trump Jr.'s legal team is growing, with the hiring of Karina Lynch, a Washington, D.C., attorney who concentrates on legislative, regulatory, and oversight issues, ABC News reports.

Lynch, from the law firm Williams and Jensen, confirmed that she is now part of the Trump Jr. team, but did not say what she will be working on. Lynch once served as investigative counsel for Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and counsel to the Senate Government Affairs Committee's Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. The Senate Judiciary Committee wants to interview Trump Jr. as part of the investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian officials during the 2016 presidential election.
