#Marc Kasowitz, who represents the U.S. president in the ongoing case of election meddling, drew flak after his profanity-laden replies to an unnamed sender were made public on Wednesday. Their exchange of emails was first reported by ProPublica which refused to reveal the identity of the sender, who reportedly asked the lawyer to resign after he said that he is not planning to seek security clearance to access government confidential documents for the Russian case.
