A white collar lawyer has reportedly declined the chance to serve on President Trump’s legal team.

CNN reported New York attorney Steven Molo — a former special prosecutor who specializes in white collar defense — was contacted by people close to Trump.

Molo declined the offer due to an unidentified conflict.

It is important to note that the article goes on to state the following:

“I regret a current conflict related to the investigation prevents me from representing the President at this time,” Molo told CNN.
Multiple lawyers have turned down opportunities to represent Trump in special counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation into Russian election interference and possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Last month, Tom Buchanan and Dan Webb, who are partners at Winston & Strawn, said the president reached out to them to see if they would join his legal team. They turned down the offer, citing business conflicts.

Former U.S. Solicitor General Theodore Olson also turned down an offer to join the team.

One of Trump’s attorneys, John Dowd, abruptly resigned from his legal team last month.
