The role of President Trump’s lawyer Marc Kasowitz’s is being reduced, according to two people familiar with the matter, and he is expected to depart the team entirely.
Kasowitz is no longer running the legal strategy, one of these people said. It will now be handled by Ty Cobb, the internal White House lawyer, and John Dowd, a combative but respected Washington attorney.
Kasowitz wasn’t immediately available for comment.
Kasowitz has come under scrutiny for his profane emails to a stranger, recently exposed by ProPublica, and his conduct outside of work, also exposed by ProbPublica.
Kasowitz has clashed with other lawyers on the team, one of these people said. He has tried to convince Trump to stop talking about the probe publicly and on Twitter but has often failed.
His spokesman, Mark Corallo, also resigned Thursday.
