Donald Trump's Lead Russia Probe Lawyer John Dowd Resigns

The White House and later Mr Dowd had to clarify the statement, saying the president's legal team wasn't calling for Mr Mueller to be fired.

On Thursday, the president's attorney resigned from his position defending him in the Russian Federation probe, led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

But Trump's self-liberation comes at a unsafe moment, with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation reaching closer and closer, stoking Trump's impulses to go to war.

In a series of tweets since last week, the president has said the investigation never should have started, that it was based on "fraudulent activities", that it was a "WITCH HUNT" and that it is being led by "13 hardened Democrats, some big Crooked Hillary supporters". "He was fucking excited and jubilant", said one Trump friend who spoke to him in recent days.

"I would like to", Trump replied when asked by a reporter whether he was willing to be interviewed by investigators. Heretofore, Trump's lawyers have offered to take questions in writing, or restrict the scope of questions by producing documents of interest to the ongoing inquiry. "Office of Professional Responsibility and Attorney General Jeff Sessions and bring an end to alleged Russian Federation collusion investigation manufactured by McCabe's boss James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt dossier", Dowd wrote.

Speaking to Radio Sputnik's Loud & Clear, Dan Kovalik, a human rights and labor lawyer and author of the upcoming book "The Plot to Attack Iran", called Dowd's departure very concerning.

That led Republican Chair of the House Oversight Committee Rep. Trey Gowdy to admonish Dowd on Fox News.

"Mr President we are watching you".

We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

On one hand, it could be a sign that Trump is planning to ignore the advice of his lawyers and sit down with Mueller.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a former U.S. senator also chosen by Trump, heads the Justice Department and has recused himself from matters involving Mueller's investigation.

DiGenova had publicly argued that Trump had been "framed" by Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department officials.

"I would consider this the largest law enforcement scandal in history for this reason", diGenova told Sean Hannity last month.

It is a sign of a potentially more aggressive drive to discredit Mr Mueller. Trump targeted Mueller by name in a tweetstorm this weekend and continued yesterday morning (March 21).

The FBI is headed by lawyer and Trump appointee Christopher Wray, who previous year replaced James Comey, whom the president fired in May.
