Donald Trump’s legal team gets shakeup as two top attorneys resign after indictment

Donald Trump’s legal team got a shakeup Friday after two of his top attorneys resigned — less than 24 hours after one of them went on a media blitz about the former president’s classified documents indictment.

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.

“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.”

The lawyers added they would also no longer represent Trump in the Jan. 6 probe into his efforts to overturn his 2020 presidential election loss.

Trump took to Truth Social to confirm their departure and to reveal he would be repped by Todd Blanche going forward.

“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,” Trump wrote.

Blanche, a New York-based criminal defense lawyer, is representing Trump in a criminal case out of Manhattan tied to “hush money” payments made to porn star Stormy Daniels in the lead-up to the 2016 election.

“I want to thank Jim Trusty and John Rowley for their work, but they were up 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,” Trump continued.

“When will Joe Biden be Indicted for his many crimes against our Nation? MAGA!”

Former Trump attorney Tim Parlatore told The Post Friday that Blanche’s hiring may present “a conflict,” given that the lawyer is also representing Boris Epshteyn, who was reportedly grilled by prosecutors from Special Counsel Jack Smith’s office in April.

Smith is overseeing the probe into Trump’s classified documents case as well as the former president’s attempts to overturn the 2020 election.

It is unclear for which case Epshteyn would have been questioned.

The legal team shakeup comes after Trusty gave a slew of interviews late Thursday detailing the seven-count indictment brought against the 45th president tied to the mishandling of classified White House documents recovered from his Mar-a-Lago estate last August.

“It does have some language in it that suggests what the seven charges would be. Not 100% clear that all of those are separate charges, but they basically break out from an Espionage Act charge,” Trusty told CNN in an interview.

Trusty added that his team hadn’t yet received a copy of the indictment but had been given a summons via email.
