The media says that US President Donald Trump's personal lawyer John Dowd has recently mulled the possibility to leave and resigned since the president was ignoring his advice, APA reports quoting Sputnik.

John Dowd, Trump's lead lawyer for the federal special counsel investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election stepped down on Thursday, the New York Times newspaper reported, citing two people familiar with the matter.

The resignation comes days after Dowd expressed hope that Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will stop the investigation into alleged collusion with Russia, stance shortly after echoed by Trump, who insisted that the investigation “based on fraudulent activities” “should never have been started.”
