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.
