Cullen also represents former FIFA President Sepp Blatter in the corruption probe into world soccer's governing body.

Even Vice President Mike Pence has hired a lawyer to represent him during the investigation.

Cullen has handled a number of high profile clients in the past and, strangely enough, is the godfather to one of James Comey's daughters, according to the Post.

Why is President Trump reportedly being investigated?

London police say several injured after vehicle rams pedestrians in Finsbury Park
Muslim Association of Britain President Omer El-Hamdoon said: "Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this evil attack". The van's 48-year-old driver was detained by members of the public and then arrested by police on suspicion of attempted murder.

Reports in United States media said senior intelligence officials would be interviewed on whether Mr Trump tried to end an inquiry into his sacked National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, and about the firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey. Those policies, relations with Cuba, investigations into any collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign and Pence hiring outside counsel are grabbing headlines in what some call a contentious political climate.

The vice president's decision to enlist outside legal counsel marks the most recent in a flurry of moves by the Trump administration to combat investigations into Russian meddling with the election. Every time his opponent, vice-presidential candidate Tim Kaine, brought up a statement by Trump-a public, documented statement, the veracity of which Americans could easily validate-Pence did not embellish.

Pence is likely a peripheral figure in the Russian Federation probe, having joined the Trump ticket late in the presidential campaign.

That includes the finances and business dealings of Jared Kushner, who is married to Trump's daughter Ivanka, and is a senior adviser at the White House, the Washington Post reported on Thursday, citing unnamed officials familiar with the matter.

The transition official spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to discuss post-election decisions publicly.

So how is the vice president going to pay for his new personal lawyer?

"Again, I would refer you to the president's outside counsel on all questions relating to the investigation", Sanders said. He resigned from office in 1973.

Vice President Al Gore also retained outside counsel in conjunction with an inquiry into his fundraising activities, including several telephone calls he made from his White House office soliciting Democratic campaign contributions.

Marc Kasowitz, the outside counsel hired by President Trump, does not have experience in politically-charged cases.

Beyoncé and Jay Z welcome twins, reports say

And Vice President Dick Cheney consulted Terrence O'Donnell, a partner at Williams & Connolly, on several issues during his time in the Bush administration. They said they have made gains thanks to assistance from the USA, which dramatically increased support for the three countries following a sharp increase in the number of unaccompanied minors crossing the US border in 2014.
