Trump’s lawyer unleashes profanity-laced response to critic

ProPublica published several emails Thursday in which President Trump’s attorney regarding Russian matters, Marc Kasowitz, used profane language in response to someone who urged him to resign and cease defending the president.

“Watch your back, b-tch,” Kasowitz wrote in one of the emails.

The same person also sent Kasowitz an article previously published by ProPublica that alleged that Kasowitz abuses alcohol at work and makes the work environment hostile.

Michael Sitrick, a spokesman for Kasowitz said that the lawyer “intends to apologize” for his profanity-laced responses, and denied that Kasowitz abuses alcohol.

“Marc Kasowitz has not struggled with alcoholism,” Sitrick told ProPublica.

The man who emailed Kasowitz—with the subject line “Resign. Now.”—was not identified by ProPublica.

The man contended in his initial email that it was in the interest of Kasowitz and his firm to withdraw as Trump’s counsel.

Kasowitz responded minutes later by writing, “F-ck you.”

Fifteen minutes later, Kasowitz sent an additional email in response.

“You don’t know me, but I will know you,” Kasowitz wrote. “How dare you send me an email like that. I’m on you now. You are f-cking with me now. Let’s see who you are. Watch your back, b-tch.”

The unnamed emailer responded to Kasowitz by writing, “thank you for your kind reply” and “I may be in touch as appropriate.”

Minutes later, another email arrived from the same man, containing Kasowitz’s phone number.

“You are such a piece of sh-t,” Kasowitz responded. “Call me. Don’t be afraid, you piece of sh-t. Stand up. If you don’t call, you’re just afraid. Call me.”

A half-hour later, another email was sent to Kasowitz, referencing his Jewish heritage.

“I’m Jewish. I presume you are too. Stop being afraid. Call me. Or give me your number and I will call you,” Kasowitz wrote. “I already know where you live, I’m on you. You might as well call me. You will see me, I promise, bro.”

ProPublica reported that the unnamed emailer forwarded the entire email chain to the FBI, claiming to have been disturbed by Kasowitz’s replies.

Kasowitz has been periodically retained by President Trump over the last 15 years for cases involving Trump University and the ongoing investigation into collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, among others.

Trump’s lawyers are no strangers to heated debates. In late June, Jay Sekulow, a member of Trump’s legal defense team, appeared on Fox News to defend the president and explain where he stood regarding special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
