Trump Attorney in Mueller Probe Resigns

Posted: Mar 22, 2018 11:42 AM

John Dowd, President Trump's lead attorney in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian investigation, has resigned, concluding that his client had repeatedly ignored his advice.

While Dowd had instructed Trump to cooperate with Mueller, the president instead has decried the investigation as a "witch hunt." 

Here's what he meant by "conflicts of interest."

Still, he told the press that he had no intention of firing Mueller.

Dowd's resignation is not great news for the president, especially if he sits down and interviews with Mueller's team.

"I love the president and wish him well," Dowd wrote to the Washington Post.
