President Donald Trump has added another top lawyer to his personal legal team amid the escalation of the Russia probe, according to news reports Friday.

John Dowd, who investigated Pete Rose for Major League Baseball in the 1980s, has joined the team headed by Marc Kasowitz, Politico reports.

Dowd, 76, who also represented Arizona GOP Sen. John McCain during the "Keating Five" scandal during the savings and loan crisis, declined to comment.

He is a former prosecutor who has practiced law in Washington for decades, according to the report.

Others on Kasowitz's team include Mark Bowe and Jay Sekulow.

President Trump and his campaign associates are facing several investigations on alleged Russian contacts, including one being led by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Others are being conducted by the Justice Department, FBI and the Intelligence Committees of the House and Senate.
