On Monday, one of former President Donald Trump’s top trial lawyers resigned from his cases.
Joe Tacopina had represented Trump in both his criminal hush money case, one of four indictments Trump faces, and a sexual battery civil lawsuit brought by columnist E. Jean Carroll.
“President Trump has the most experienced, qualified, disciplined, and overall strongest legal team ever assembled as he continues to fight for America and Americans against these partisan, Crooked Joe Biden-led election interference hoaxes,” Trump spokesperson Steven Cheung said in a statement.
The motivation behind Tacopina’s departure remains unclear. He confirmed to The Hill he was withdrawing from Trump’s cases but declined further comment.
