Trump legal team seeing to add Ted Olsed

President Trump's legal team has reportedly reached out to veteran Republican attorney Theodore B. Olson in the hopes of bringing him aboard as they deal with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday that Olson is reviewing the offer, though he personally declined to comment. He has previously declined an offer to join Trump's legal team.

Olson, 77, served as solicitor general in George W. Bush's administration and as assistant attorney general in charge of the office of legal counsel in the Justice Department from 1981-1984.

The offer to Olson is the latest indication of a shift in how the president's legal team approaches the Mueller investigation.
