“Donald Trump’s lawyers — including the ones who don’t appear on television but spent a career practicing federal criminal law — never seriously worried their client would be accused of a Russia conspiracy,” three sources familiar with the matter told NBC News.
“For Martin and Jane Raskin, a husband and wife duo from Miami who came aboard Trump’s legal team last April, the real threat was obstruction of justice.”
“The Raskins, former prosecutors with decades of experience doing battle with the Justice Department, worked in coordination with constitutional lawyer Jay Sekulow, who led the Trump legal team. The Raskins dealt directly with Mueller’s office, the sources said. And by the time they arrived, Mueller’s prosecutors rarely asked probing questions about Russia.”Save to Favorites
