8 lawyers who decided not to work with Trump
President Donald Trump is reportedly not an easy person to work with.
Lawyer John Dowd suggested as much when he resigned from Trump's legal team last week, reportedly because the president was refusing to listen to his advice on how to approach the special counsel Robert Mueller and his Russia investigation.
Trump had advocated an aggressive approach toward the probe and said that he "would like to" sit down with Mueller to prove his innocence on the probe's questions over whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. But Dowd pushed for a more cautious attitude toward the investigation.
Experts said Dowd's exit was a symptom of a legal team that is not on the same page.
"It looks to me like they have too many conflicting power centers on their defense team, and all will be competing and giving advice that conflicts with one another," Peter Zeidenberg, a former federal prosecutor who worked on a notable 2003 special counsel investigation, previously told Business Insider.
But even as Trump has sought to shake up his legal team in order to tap attorneys who would let him pursue whatever course he thinks is best, he has been stonewalled by several prominent lawyers.
Here are eight lawyers who have decided not to work with the president so far:
