U.S. President Donald Trump’s outside legal team spokesman has resigned amid media reports the team is being reorganized as investigations continue into alleged Russian meddling in the U.S. election and possible collusion with Trump’s campaign.
Mark Corallo confirmed his departure today in an emailed statement.
His resignation comes amid reports regarding the role of Marc Kasowitz, Trump’s attorney handing the investigation into the Trump campaign’s possible ties to Russia.
According to Reuters, NBC reported today that Kasowitz was no longer leading the legal team but would remain on board to provide guidance. The New York Times reported late yesterday that his “role … will be significantly reduced.”
