John Dowd resigned Thursday as President Donald Trump's lead attorney in the special counsel probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

"I love the president and wish him well," Dowd told NBC News.

The New York Times, which broke the news of Dowd's depature, noted that he had been considering leaving in recent months after being named to head Trump's legal team last summer.

Dowd "ultimately concluded that Mr. Trump was increasingly ignoring his advice," the Times said, citing a person briefed on Dowd's departure.

Specifically, Dowd had opposed Trump's desire to be interviewed by the special counsel's office.

I would disagree with that characterization. More like "responsible attorney declining to further represent a very difficult client".


It has been obvious that some of Mr. Trump's attorneys are frustrated that he ignores sound legal advise. If Mr. Dowd has not advised the President, for instance, to quit tweeting, that is akin to legal malpractice.


Yet, I bet he did so advise.


It is the 'rats' that stay with such a man.

Trump wants an attorney that will publicly attack Mueller, per news reports. Looks like John Down tried that one time to satisfy Trump. It didn't work out too well.

As usual, Trump is his own worst enemy. Ignoring his lawyers' advice because, of course, he knows better than all of them. He's not too bright, our CIC.

Spoken like someone who spent too much time around Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Agree. The most important factor is in the article (and other news reports):
"Dowd ultimately concluded that Mr. Trump was increasingly ignoring his advice."


I wonder if Alan Dershowitz might replace Dowd. He'd be happy to agree with the President that he should fire Mueller.

I believe Dowd was the one trying to avoid Trump sitting down with Mueller. With Dowd gone, DO IT, DONNY! DO IT!
