Two of Trump's critics have called Consovoy's views "spectacularly anti-constitutional." Federal judges in Washington and New York have rejected his argument that the president's financial records for his businesses are off-limits to Congress.

But Consovoy, whose small firm in Arlington, Va., is appealing the rulings this summer, is looking to the next round with an eye on a Supreme Court win.

Jay Sekulow, an early member of Trump's team of private lawyers, said Consovoy's strategic thinking and appellate expertise from years in the trenches at a big Washington law firm make him a "natural fit" for handling issues that the high court may ultimately decide.
