According to the ABC, it will work in coordination with private attorneys in charge of defending the u.s. president in the scandal of the involvement of Russian in the us presidential election, and suspicions of complicity with Moscow.

It was revealed recently that Donald Trump Jr., the eldest son of Trump, met a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign after being promised "damaging" information about Hilary Clinton, the Democratic presidential candidate running against his father.

Both the former Soviet serviceman, a naturalized American who lobbies for Russian interests in Washington, and the Russian lawyer, also a lobbyist, have denied links to the Russian government, while Kremlin said it does not know the meeting nor the two lobbyists. "For weeks", the New York Times reported Friday, McGahn "has been urging Mr. Trump to bolster his in-house team with a seasoned lawyer to help deal with an expected flood of document requests" from Department of Justice special counsel Robert Mueller.

However, Jamie Grayclick, a politically-related attorney representing Jared Kouchner, #President Trump's son-in-law, transfers all responsibility for Russia's probe into Abe Lowell, a prominent Washington defense lawyer. Others on the Russia-response team include lawyer Jay Sekulow, a frequent TV surrogate for Trump, and Mark Corallo, a public relations consultant. Cobb is said to be related to the deceased baseball Hall of Famer of the same name.
