Four top law firms reportedly turned down requests to represent President Trump in the investigation into ties between his administration and Russia.

Lawyers from the firms declined to represent Trump in the probe over concerns that he would not take their advice, Yahoo News reported.

Brendan Sullivan of Williams & Connolly, Ted Olson of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, Paul Clement and Mark Filip of Kirkland & Ellis and Robert Giuffra of Sullivan & Cromwell are reportedly among those who turned the White House down. None of them returned requests for comment to Yahoo.

Some lawyers familiar with the situation cited existing commitments, upcoming trials, possible damage to a firm's reputation and potential conflicts with clients as part of their reasoning for not representing Trump.

But those lawyers reportedly said they were concerned Trump would make public statements against their legal advice that hurt his position in the investigation.

“The concerns were, ‘The guy won’t pay and he won’t listen,’ ” one lawyer close to the White House told Yahoo.
