President Trump Adds Coral Gables Husband-And-Wife Duo To Legal Team

Share

On Thursday, Donald Trump's attorney Jay Sekulow stated that former mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani will be one of a trio of lawyers joining the president's personal legal team.

Giuliani added he's been speaking with PEETUS for weeks about joining the group of legal advisers, which has been struggling to recruit new members following the raid of Michael Cohen's records and all that Stormy Daniels drama. The two, who are married and run a law firm together, are based in Coral Gables but handle cases across the United States.

The Raskins also have experience handling government investigations.

Former federal prosecutors Jane and Marty Raskin have also joined the team, Jay Sekulow, a counsel to the president, announced on Thursday. "I've got great admiration for President Trump".

Some of their cases high-profile white collar cases include representing federal immigration agents suspected of extorting money from drug kingpins, mob suspects, and a contractor tied to the 1996 Valujet plane crash in the Everglades.

A number of Trump allies have believed that Trump has been ill-served by his current legal team and applauded the addition of the hard-charging Giuliani. Trump is looking to bring his involvement with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation to a close, and is considering whether to sit for questioning by Mueller's team.

His estate released a video montage from the rehearsal today (Apr. 19) to mark the anniversary of his death two years ago. WCCO's Mary McGuire spoke with one longtime fan before the announcement on charges was made this morning.

Trump's legal team had been short-staffed for several weeks, since the departure of attorney John Dowd last month.

It's a precarious time for Trump.

Trump's legal team has been told by Mueller that the president is a subject of the investigation, not a target, though that designation can change at any time. But he is now a subject of the probe - a designation that could change at any time.

We may not know what exactly inspired Giuliani to hop aboard Trump's sinking legal ship, but we're sure it wasn't just the honor of serving the president.

After drawing wide praise for his leadership in NY after the September 11, 2001, terror attacks, Giuliani ran for president seven years later, only to see his bid quickly falter.
