The head of Donald Trump’s outside legal team appears to be stepping aside amid reports that Trump is reshuffling his circle of lawyers representing him in the Russia investigation.

News that Marc Kasowitz is “out” as Trump’s attorney was first tweeted [2]by CBS News White Correspondent Major Garrett. 

It wasn’t immediately clear if the move was motivated by a series of profanity-laced email exchanges that Kasowitz had with a seeming stranger.

Mark Corallo, the spokesman for Trump’s legal team, also resigned Thursday.

Kasowitz, who represented Trump in several cases in the past, was hired by the president in late May to represent him in the ongoing investigation into alleged collusion between the president’s campaign team and Russia.
