shakeups
July 21, 2017

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."

Deputy National Security Adviser K.T. McFarland has been asked to resign from her post after three months on the job, Bloomberg reported Sunday morning, and will instead become the U.S. ambassador to Singapore.

McFarland will not actually leave her current role for two weeks. Her departure was expected following the resignation of Michael Flynn, whom current National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster replaced, and this fresh shakeup comes just four days after President Trump's chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, was removed from the National Security Council.

McFarland worked for the National Security Council and the Defense Department in the 1970s and 1980s; in recent years she was a security analyst for Fox News. Dina Powell, who served alongside McFarland in the dual deputy adviser roles, will stay in her position. Bonnie Kristian

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey confirmed Sunday that four of Twitter's top executives will be leaving the company.

Product chief Kevin Weil, head of engineering Alex Roetter, vice president of global media Katie Jacobs Stanton, and vice president of human resources Skip Schipper will be "taking some well-deserved time off," Dorsey said in a statement posted on Twitter. Dorsey tweeted that he was "really hoping to talk to Twitter employees about this later this week," but felt he had to set the record straight because of "inaccurate press rumors today regarding their departures."

Twitter's shares have fallen 23 percent in January, and the company is struggling to attract new users, CNN Money reports. A source told CNN Money that Roetter, Stanton, and Weil all made the decision to leave Twitter separately over the last few weeks, and another source said the company will soon announce major hires, including a new CMO and board members.
