Abbe Lowell Joins Jared Kushner's Legal Team

Monday, 26 June 2017 07:17 PM

President Donald Trump's son-in-law is turning to a prominent defense lawyer, Abbe Lowell, to represent him in Russia-related investigations.

Jared Kushner's lawyer, Jamie Gorelick, says that Lowell has been added to the team representing Kushner.

Gorelick's law firm, WilmerHale, is involved in the Russia investigation in multiple ways. Former FBI Director Robert Mueller left the firm last month to serve as special counsel overseeing an investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia. He took several partners with him.

The firm also represents ex-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

Lowell is one of the country's most prominent trial lawyers. He won the acquittal of former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards in a campaign finance prosecution. He currently represents New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez on bribery charges.
