Joe diGenova and Victoria Toensing will not join Trump's defense team, other lawyers anxious to join


Unhappy that Joe diGenova is not aboard. 
But, it doesn't mean JD won't be giving the president advice behind the scenes.
Fox News report President Trump’s new picks for his legal team in the Russia investigation cannot join because of “conflicts,” Jay Sekulow, counsel to the president, said Sunday.

“The president is disappointed that conflicts prevent Joe diGenova and Victoria Toensing from joining the President's Special Counsel legal team,” Sekulow said in a statement.

Trump added the husband-wife team after John Dowd, a top member of the team, resigned last week.

Sekulow said the conflicts do not prevent diGenova and Toensing from assisting the president in other legal matters, but declined to reveal the nature of the conflicts.
