President Donald Trump and his most trusted staff are putting together "war-room-like mechanisms" in order to take on the Russia investigation, according to a Tuesday morning report in Axios.
Trump's aides have looked at how former Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton handled the scandals in their administrations, according to the report.
White House officials said they believe defending against the Russia scandal will be "essentially permanent," Axios noted, and assigning one official to the task of handling legal and communication issues — to provide a consistent approach — is one thing the staff learned from looking at past administrations.
Trump is moving quickly toward choosing outside counsel to help navigate the probes into his campaign and Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, according to The Washington Post.
"These guys know how to fight a war," a Trump ally said about attorneys the president is considering, Axios reports.
The president is also looking into bringing onboard two former officials from his campaign to work as crisis managers, according to Politico.
Trump personally contacted Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie, to gage their interest in working with the administration, Politico reports.
