Known for his litigiousness, President Donald Trump has already threatened to see organizations he disagrees with in court — but according to sources familiar with White House scandals, his staff might be the ones who need lawyers.
According to sources interviewed by POLITICO, staffers in the Trump White House may need their own counsel to protect against prosecution should legal scandal come to Pennsylvania Ave.
Former FBI agent Lewis Schiliro, a bureau veteran who headed New York’s field office, told POLITICO that White House staffers involved in any potential wrongdoing are most at risk.
“If they have information that indicates contact with Russians or attempts to interfere they better damn well,” Schiliro told POLITICO. “That’s a pretty serious thing.”
