Trump Legal Team Shake-up as Dowd Quits03/23 06:20

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump's lead lawyer in the special 
counsel's Russia investigation has resigned. The move on Thursday has shaken up 
the legal team just as Trump intensifies attacks on an inquiry he calls nothing 
more than a witch hunt.

   The departure of attorney John Dowd removes the primary negotiator and legal 
strategist who had been molding Trump's defense.

   It also comes just days after the Trump legal team added a new lawyer, 
former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova, who has accused FBI officials of being 
involved in a "brazen plot" to exonerate Hillary Clinton in the email 
investigation and to "frame" Trump for nonexistent crimes.
