“Tim Parlatore, one of the lawyers defending Donald Trump against special counsel Jack Smith’s investigation into the handling of documents marked as classified, has resigned from the former president’s legal team. ‘It’s personal and it’s got nothing to do with my belief in the strength of the case,’ Parlatore told POLITICO Wednesday morning. CNN first reported his departure from Trump’s legal team. Parlatore began representing Trump as he lawyered up amid a growing number of legal threats, including Smith’s other investigation into Trump’s effort to subvert the 2020 election. … Parlatore previously drew national attention for representing Eddie Gallagher, a Navy SEAL [war criminal].” (05/17/23)
