President Donald Trump has turned to one of his most trusted legal advisers to guide him through what could be one of the most challenging moments in his presidency, FOX Business has learned.
Trump has officially retained New York attorney Marc Kasowitz as his lawyer representing him on the investigation headed by recently-appointed special counsel Robert Mueller, into claims that there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives during the 2016 election season.
Kasowitz and the firm he founded, Kasowitz, Benson, Torres LLP, has represented Trump in numerous cases including real estate transactions, divorce records and allegations of fraud at Trump University.
