President Trump met with lawyers on Thursday to discuss the upcoming investigations into allegations that Trump's 2016 presidential campaign colluded with Russia, according to a report.
A White House official told Politico that the majority of the conversation revolved around logistics of how the investigation would play out and how the administration should handle itself throughout.
The meeting took place one day after the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to lead the Trump-Russia probe.
Michael Cohen, a high-profile lawyer for Trump, reportedly made the trip from New York to be in attendance.
The specific objective of the meeting was to keep the president from hurting himself any further. One official said White House counsel Don McGahn was urging the White House to be careful when speaking to Mueller.
Trump has continued to fight against claims that his presidential campaign colluded with Russia.
"There was no collusion, and everybody — even my enemies have said there is no collusion," the president said on Thursday during a joint press conference with President Juan Manuel Santos of Colombia.
