Donald Trump has reportedly hired a top Wall Street Lawyer to represent him in the Russia probe. 

ABC News and Fox Business Network have claimed Marc Kasowitz has been brought on board as the President's counsel.

Former FBI director Robert Mueller has been appointed to direct the investigation into the Trump administration's ties to Russia. Mueller himself arrives with a glittering reputation, having guided the Bureau through the days after 9/11.

However he could meet his match in Kasowitz, who has been described as Trump's 'go-to' man when it comes to his legal representation. 

Kasowitz was hired last year to defend the president when he was faced with a series of sexual assualt claims during his campaign.
