Ted Olson Quickly Rejected Offer To Join Trump Legal Team

Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher litigation co-chair Theodore Boutrous confirmed in a tweet Tuesday that his partner Theodore Olson will not join the legal team representing President Donald Trump.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday that Trump’s legal team had reached out to Olson, a former U.S. solicitor general and top national appellate lawyer, “to join forces” as the president confronts special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

A source familiar with the law firm’s decision-making, who could only speak anonymously, told ALM that Olson declined the invitation Tuesday morning, a day after he was contacted about joining the team.

Joining the group would have exposed Gibson Dunn to potential conflicts. For instance, Boutrous is representing Fusion GPS, the firm behind the so-called Trump dossier.
