Spokesman for Trump’s legal team resigns just two months after starting

The spokesman for President Donald Trump’s legal team has resigned within two months of being on the job, according to people familiar with the matter.

Mark Corallo, the spokesman, had grown frustrated with the operation and the warring factions and lawyers, these people said. Corallo was also concerned if he was being told the truth about various matters, one of these people said.

Corallo did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

Corallo had told an associate that the dynamics in the White House were untenable and that there was "too much fighting all the time," in the words of one person who spoke to him.

He said he no longer needed the money and had complained about the fighting among the lawyers, this person said.

Corallo had been a long time crisis communications guru and had worked for John Ashcroft at the Justice Department in the George W. Bush administration.
