Three Lawyers For Former Trump Aide Rick Gates Abruptly Quit, Remaining Lawyer Known For Plea Deals

Politico reports:

Three attorneys representing Rick Gates told a federal court Thursday they are immediately withdrawing as counsel for the former Donald Trump campaign aide, who is fighting special counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of him on money laundering and other charges.

Lawyers Shanlon Wu, Walter Mack and Annemarie McAvoy said in a two-page motion that they would explain the reasons for their abrupt move in documents filed under seal with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. “The document speaks for itself,” McAvoy told POLITICO, declining further comment.
