(Newser) – President Trump is busily tweeting how "very happy" he is with his legal team in the wake of the departure of top lawyer John Dowd, reports the Washington Post. "Many lawyers and top law firms want to represent me in the Russia case...don’t believe the Fake News narrative that it is hard to find a lawyer who wants to take this on. Fame & fortune will NEVER be turned down by a lawyer," he tweeted early Sunday, in a reference to an earlier Post report that the president was having a hard time finding representation in Robert Mueller's investigation. Further, Trump contends that any new "lawyer or law firm will take months to get up to speed (if for no other reason than they can bill more), which is unfair to our great country - and I am very happy with my existing team." The Post pins Trump's difficulties on him being "a difficult client to work with" who "often ignores the advice of his legal counsel." (Read more President Trump stories.)
