Kasowitz also sent a letter to the New York Times in October on behalf of Trump, arguing that the paper's report about allegations that Trump groped several women was "reckless and defamatory".

But campaign finance lawyers said Trump could probably draw funds from his reelection committee to cover legal expenses related to the Russian Federation inquiries, including money donated this year.
Last week, former Federal Bureau of Investigation boss Robert Mueller was named special counsel for the Department of Justice inquiry. It said they spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. The team is likely to have lead counselors, those people said.
Note, Kasowitz will represent Trump as an individual.
