Trump’s Legal Team Gets Big and Unexpected Shakeup

Published on

Former President Donald Trump appears to be clearing house after dismissing two of his top attorneys and announcing their replacements swiftly.

This comes amid an indictment against Trump for retaining classified documents after leaving office.

Trump announced the shakeup on Friday morning, writing in a Truth Social post: “For purposes of fighting the Greatest Witch Hunt of all time, now moving to the Florida Courts, I will be represented by Todd Blanche, Esq., and a firm to be named later.”

He then thanked his now-former attorneys, Jim Trusty and John Rowley, “for their work … against a very dishonest, corrupt, evil, and ‘sick’ group of people, the likes of which has not been seen before.”

“We will be announcing additional lawyers in the coming days,” he said, adding: “When will Joe Biden be Indicted for his many crimes against our Nation? MAGA!”

Not long after, Trusty and Rowley issued a joint statement announcing their resignation from Trump’s legal team.

“This morning we tendered our resignations as counsel to President Trump, and we will no longer represent him on either the indicted case or the January 6 investigation,” the statement read. “It has been an honor to have spent the last year defending him, and we know he will be vindicated in his battle against the Biden Administration’s partisan weaponization of the American justice system.”

“Now that the case has been filed in Miami, this is a logical moment for us to step aside and let others carry the cases through to completion,” they wrote, adding that they will not address their withdrawal in any media appearances.

The evening prior to his resignation announcement, Trusty appeared on CNN, where he was asked who would represent Trump at his impending court appointment.

“We’ll see. It’ll make some excitement to see who shows up to the table on Tuesday, I guess,” Trusty told CNN’s Kaitlan Collins.
