Trump’s Lead Lawyer Resigns

John Dowd, who is President Trump’s lead lawyer, resigned on Thursday according to the New York Times.

The New York Times reported:

“Mr. Dowd, who took over the president’s legal team last summer, had considered leaving several times in recent months and ultimately concluded that Mr. Trump was increasingly ignoring his advice, one of the people said. Mr. Trump has insisted he should sit for an interview with the special counsel’s office, even though Mr. Dowd believed it was a bad idea.”

Trump recently brought on Joseph E. diGenova to join his legal team, and it is unclear who will take over the lead position on Trump’s legal team.
