A person familiar with the overture said Emmet Flood, a partner at the firm Williams and Connelly, met last week in the Oval Office with Trump to discuss the offer.

Former FBI director Robert Mueller is leading an investigation into Russia's multifaceted efforts to interfere with the 2016 elections and disrupt US democratic institutions.

"The Failing New York Times purposely wrote a false story stating that I am unhappy with my legal team on the Russian Federation case and am going to add another lawyer to help out".

Maggie Haberman, the New York Times White House correspondent who co-wrote the story with Michael Schmidt, immediately responded. The only Collusion was that done by the DNC, the Democrats and Crooked Hillary.

The Times reported that Trump is considering adding the lawyer that helped Bill ClintonWilliam (Bill) Jefferson ClintonShould the Rob Porter outcome set the standard?

NY lawyer Marc Kasowitz was leading Trump's legal team at the time, a role veteran Washington lawyer John Dowd took over last summer.

Trump now has White House lawyer Ty Cobb in charge of the inquiry, after his longtime personal lawyer Marc Kasowitz stepped aside last summer. The president comment on the story on Sunday, calling it false.

He didn't play a lot of games but, despite this, his commitment is incredible and he helped me a lot in the changing room.

The apparent signal that Trump is preparing for the investigation to continue through the immediate future comes as Mueller's investigation has produced multiple indictments and as the President has seen the departure of key White House personnel. Cobb has also reportedly told friends he does not expect to remain in his job much longer, and some advisers have suggested Trump invite his longtime NY lawyer, Marc E. Kasowitz, to take the lead again.

In addition to defending Clinton at the most precarious moment of his political life, Flood has represented former President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.

President Donald Trump returns to the White House on March 10, 2018 in Washington, DC.

White House officials expressed concern on Saturday about news that "an impeachment lawyer" might join the team, a third source told Reuters.

But there have been significant changes to Trump's legal advice since then.

Neither the White House nor Flood returned a request for comment.

Flood's law firm, Williams and Connolly, represents Hillary Clinton, including in the email scandal, one possible reason that sources told Reuters previous year the firm turned down representing Trump as outside counsel.
