And with that, another one bites the dust.
ABC News journalist John Santucci reports the following on Twitter:
‘Sources tell ABC News that Mark Corallo, spokesperson for Trump legal team working Russia probe had resigned. No word yet from Corallo.’

Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner recently lost a member of his legal team when Jamie Gorelick announced that he would no longer be representing him in the various ongoing Russia probes.
Donald Trump Jr., on the other hand, recently announced that he has retained legal counsel to represent him in the Russia scandal in the form of at least Alan Futerfas.
The president’s personal legal team is hardly very professional. For instance, Marc Kasowitz was recently outed for sending expletive laden emails to strangers, and Jay Sekulow is more of a conservative pop culture icon — who also happens to be under investigation — than an actual legal expert.
The Washington Post is also pursuing the story of Corallo’s resignation, but although they confirmed from two people close to the issue that he had resigned, Corallo did not respond to requests for comment.
Trump and those close to him are facing a tough inquiry from Special Counsel for the Russia investigation, Robert Mueller, who is looking into possible financial crimes and possible covert cooperation between the Trump team and Russia.
