Two of Trump's lawyers, Jim Trusty and John Rowley, have officially RESIGNED

Two of Trump's lawyers have officially RESIGNED. Jim Trusty and John Rowley have both stepped down following the news of Trump's indictment.

Trump is set to be arraigned Miami on Tuesday, where he's been indicted on seven charges. There's a long history of Trump being abandoned by his attorneys, many times because they're unable to commit to breaking the law for Trump. Michael Cohen, Tim Parlatore and others have formerly abandoned him.

The lawyers, Jim Trusty and John Rowley, issued a joint statement saying they had tendered their resignations first thing Friday. They didn’t elaborate on the reasoning behind their sudden departure other than to say, “This is a logical moment for us to step aside” given the 76-year-old ex-president’s Thursday indictment was filed in the US District Court in Miami. 

“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,” Trusty and Rowley said.

“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. '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,' they said.

When he was president, there were often disputes between Trump and his aides over whether they resigned or were pushed out, and there have been suggestions Trump was angry with how they handled the case and that he was blindsided by the indictment

It was just one of the stunning turns Friday, when Trump aide and former 'bodyman' Walt Nauta was indicted in the same classified documents probe. Their departure is just the latest legal shakeup involving Trump, who has continued to cycle through lawyers while facing multiple probes relating to classified documents, 'hush' payments to porn star Stormy Daniels, January 6, his election overturn effort in Georgia, and his business dealings in New York. 

'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. 'We have no plans to hold media appearances that address our withdrawals or any other confidential communications we've had with the President or his legal team,' they wrote, CNBC reported.

Trusty, a Washington, D.C.-based lawyer with experience in RICO cases, had been fiercely defending Trump just hours before, on a Friday appearance where he clashed with host George Stephanopoulos on ABC's 'This Week.'
