As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Trump Attorney Dowd Resigns After President Loses Confidence in Him

At least he didn’t get tweeted out of the administration.

From the Washington Post:

John Dowd, a personal attorney to President Trump, resigned his position Thursday amid a shake-up in the president’s legal team as Trump has sought more firepower to deal with the special counsel’s Russia investigation.

The resignation came Thursday, according to three people familiar with the decision. In an email to The Washington Post, Dowd wrote, “I love the President and wish him well.”

Dowd’s departure was a largely mutual decision made after the president lost confidence in his ability to handle special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation and Dowd became frustrated with Trump’s recent efforts to bring on new attorneys, they said.

In recent weeks, Dowd clashed with the president, including an incident in which he disagreed vehemently with Trump over a legal strategy, according to the people.

Dowd has been urging cooperation with Mueller, but Trump has taken on an increasingly aggressive tone and recently brought Joseph diGenova onto the team, a tough former prosecutor who is likely to recommend confrontation with the special prosecutor.

  1. This Mule er thing is gone on too long. Trump saw what happened to Flynn. He is not about to repeat that. He does not need to talk to the Mule……

    Mule er is a dirty rat and needs to be trapped like one! Enough already.

  2. Since when is “personal attorney” to anyone a “position” that requires a resignation?
    We have a personal attorney that looked after our business deals and some personal matters that doesn’t have to resign for us to move on to another attorney. The odds are that MrTrump has employed multiple attorneys in his private affairs and even now while he sits in the White House.
    It’s hard to believe anything that is written in the WaPo that is attributed to “people” or “sources”. The WaPo and the rest of the anti-Trump MSM are spinning this as proof that MrTrump is alone, out of control, and his own people are leaving him to spin and twist in the wind.
