President Donald Trump is expected to retain Marc Kasowitz as his private attorney on matters related to the Russia investigation, sources told NBC News.
Kasowitz has represented Trump a number of times in the past and has a long relationship with the president, Business Insider reported.
He is a partner at Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman in New York and has represented Trump in numerous cases, including on his divorce records, real estate transactions and allegations of fraud at Trump University, The Washington Post reported.
He also has represented the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and the New York Jets.
Meanwhile, former Connecticut Sen. Joseph Lieberman, a Democrat, joined Kasowitz' law firm in 2013 — and Lieberman is under consideration by Trump to replace Comey as FBI director.
