    John Dowd's resignation and the hiring of Joseph E. diGenova signals that Trump has altered his legal strategy from one of cooperation to one of outright dismissal and attack. That approach is echoed by Trump himself in his, for the first time, personal attacks against Mueller in tweets over the weekend.

    Watch for Trump's other primary attorney, Marc Kasowitz - another attorney championing the "work with Mueller" tact, to also resign or be removed in the coming weeks.

    Trump's legal team is the fastest growing sector of the economy.

    LOL!!!!

    He can't get a good attorney. The mediocre ones he had are all abandoning him and only the worst losers with nothing left to lose will take him on. LOL!!!!

    This will be a very strong signal to all but the dumbest, low IQ, hopeless loyalists. Nobody with a half a brain will remain deceived by him and continue to stand by him. That and some of his relatives. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

    Dowd does not want to go to jail, and where he has no protected customer attorney concerns he will provide interesting information to Mueller.

    Translation he beat you to the DNC bonus check.

    What was it in that wikileaks e-mail? Something about paid trolls for on-line 'pushback'?

    Dowd left because he has recommended that Trump not talk under oath to Mueller. That's the classic perjury trap in which anything can be used to entrap an interviewee. And that is exactly what happened to Scooter Libby, Martha Stewart, and Mike Flynn who committed no crimes but were convicted of not being truthful for any reason. If Trump does talk to Mueller he deserves council completely on board with that decision. Dowd could not commit to that and resigned.

    And illustrative of the post modern leftist mind which somehow concludes that growth is the result of contraction. Amazing. That is indeed funny. :applause:

    You think the resignation of Dowd and the hiring of DiGenova makes it MORE likely that Trump will agree to testify under oath?

    You were taking the post literally. You should take it seriously, but not literally.

    I don't understand your assessment. I viewed it as inevitable the moment Dowd became a target if much scrutiny. A lawyer who is under such suspicion is likely to do more damage than good for the person he defending.

    Why is Trump losing one lawyer and getting another lawyer to replace the other lawyer news?

    I'm still waiting for solid evidence of collusion, but it is worry some so many are leaving.

    Interesting take consider that Dowd was the only member of Trump's entire legal team that opposed an interview with Mueller.

    Why do you think he was the only attorney opposed to that interview? If I were his attorney, I would be recommend he avoid the interview as well.

    No kidding.

    No Self-Respecting Attorney wants to be anywhere near Trump.

    Trump (As ALWAYS) scraping the bottom of the barrel.

    Trump is really getting down to the SLUDGE of the Legal "Profession" if he had to bring in a Pathetic Fox Tinfoil Hat (like diGenova).

    Nobody takes diGenova seriously. NOBODY.

    ^That seems to a "qualification" to work for Trump.

    Donald Trump? :roflol:

    And people actually actually voted for that IMBECILE? :roflol:

    What is even more astounding, is that Trump's Blind Apologists won't even admit their MISTAKE, and they continue to support that RAGING MORON. :smfh:

    Donald Trump? :roflol:
