President Donald Trump has lawyers, the office of the president has lawyers, Trump's family members now have lawyers, and in some cases, lawyers have lawyers.

The result — even more chaos in the West Wing, Politico reported.

Trump's team of personal lawyers, already taken aback by the infighting in the White House, are now grappling with restoring some order and discipline to how things get done moving forward, especially with respect to anything Russia.

"These are people who have never been in government," Matt Schlapp, a conservative close to the White House told Politico. "It's actually kind of unnerving to be in a White House when it's being investigated by special counsel."

And it's only going to get worse — aides with touch points on anything Russia who don't yet have counsel are being encouraged to do so, The Hill reported.

"It's irresponsible and reckless for anyone near these allegations to not have counsel,” one Republican operative told The Hill. "They would be compromising their colleagues in the White House without it."

Marc Kasowitz, Trump's chief attorney, is trying to wedge some separation between all of the legal teams as well as making it a priority to be the first to know something, not the last, as was the case last weekend about Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer, according to Politico.

But the worst offender of the chaos, in some cases, is the president himself.

"They say, don't do this, don't do that, and then he tweets," one White House adviser told Politico. "And then the conversation happens again."
