John Dowd resigned as President Donald Trump’s lead attorney countering Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe as the inquiry into possible collusion in the 2016 election intensifies.“I love the president and wish him well,”’ Dowd said.
Earlier Saturday morning, President Trump’s lawyer John Dowd told the Daily Beast it’s time for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to shut down the Mueller witch hunt.
“I pray that Acting Attorney General Rosenstein will follow the brilliant and courageous example of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility and Attorney General Jeff Sessions and bring an end to alleged Russia Collusion investigation manufactured by McCabe’s boss James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt Dossier,” Dowd told The Daily Beast.
It appears President Trump may be shifting his strategy with Robert Mueller.
President Trump recently hired former federal prosecutor, Joe DiGenova to serve as one of his personal lawyers.
DiGenova has fiercely criticized the Mueller witch hunt.
In December, DiGenova accused the Obama administration of conspiring to frame the incoming President of the United States.
Joe DiGenova also recently told Sean Hannity that we are going to see several criminal charges against a number of top DOJ-FBI officials, emphasizing the FISA abuse is the “largest scandal ever.”
An attorney for Trump, Jay Sekulow said in a statement, “We will continue our ongoing representation of the President and our cooperation with the Office of Special Counsel.”
The gloves are off. President Trump has been bringing punishing rounds to Mueller almost on a daily basis.
