But there have been signs in recent months that Mr. Trump may be looking to shake up his legal team and change his approach to Mr. Mueller's investigation.
In a series of tweets Sunday morning, Trump denounced a report from the New York Times saying that Washington lawyer Emmet T. Flood, who represented former President Bill Clinton during his impeachment, visited the Oval Office to discuss the possibility of helping to deal with the Justice Department.

He also served in the White House Counsel's Office under President George W. Bush and has represented former Vice President Dick Cheney.
In response to the report, Trump tweeted Sunday that he wasn't adding another lawyer to "help out" and accused the Times of intentionally writing a "false story".

As recently as the summer, Mr. Flood, who now works at the law firm Williams & Connolly, turned down an opportunity to represent Mr. Trump.
White House officials did not immediately answer a request for comment when the Times reached out.
