Marc Kasowitz out as Trump's personal attorney

Lawyer Marc Kasowitz, who has represented President Trump since the early 2000s, is out as the president's personal attorney, CBS News reports. The details of the ousting are not immediately clear, although the shakeup comes as the Russia investigation, headed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, turns its attention toward the Trump family's business dealings despite the efforts of the president's lawyers.

Additionally, Kasowitz recently sent several threatening, expletive-filled emails to a stranger who told him to resign, with the attorney later blaming his language on exhaustion following "a very long day."

Lawyers Ty Cobb, Jay Sekulow, and John Dowd remain to represent Trump.
