While the Trump family struggles to navigate Donnygate, the president's personal lawyer on all things Russia, Marc E. Kasowitz, has come under scrutiny of his own after sending a stranger a string of threatening, expletive-laden e-mails on Wednesday night.
The stranger reportedly sent Kasowitz the email after watching a segment on The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC that referenced previous Pro Publica reporting on the lawyer not seeking security clearance.
Later that night, Kasowtiz replied.
Kasowitz replied again 14 minutes later without a response from the sender, but this email was not as censored.
"You will see me, I promise", Kasowitz wrote.
DraftKings and FanDuel merger spiked
The FTC argued that any potential efficiencies gained through the merger wouldn't offset the "likely competitive harm". This marks a big win for interim FTC Chair Maureen Ohlhausen who has now won her first major suit to block a merger.
And you don't know me, but I will know you How dare you send me an email like that I'm on you now. You might as well call me. And in another: "I already know where you live". I don't know you.
"I'm on you now", one read". Minutes later, another email arrived, with Kasowitz' phone number.
This is more of the Trump associate type casting: The abusive alcoholic who threatens any and everyone, behaves so poorly in public that he might not be able to get a security clearance, and in general is as inept and incompetent as he is abrasive and inappropriate.
But, I believe it is in your interest and the long-term interest of your firm for you to resign from your position advising the President re pending federal legal matters. "And I will come after your Daily Beast and everybody else that you possibly know", Cohen said. "If I'm a prosecutor I'm going to think hard about that". In one of the emails, Kasowitz writes "You are f***ing with me now Let's see who you are Watch your back, b****". "But in my view - as someone who despises the Trump administration, but who has litigated these issues - he is well on the legal side of the line".
Kasowitz has been retained periodically by Trump for over 15 years. (Kasowitz's spokesman disputed aspects of that report).

The message reads: "I received the very sad news of the death of your dearly beloved wife, Madam Omowunmi Akande this morning". Buhari, who is now recuperating from an undisclosed illness in London described the loss as an "irreparable" one.
He added Kasowitz is now "tied up with client matters".
Trump has "trained his ire" on his longtime advocate after growing disillusioned with him, the New York Times reporter Tuesday.
Kasowitz, through his spokesperson Mike Sitrick, said the person he went after was within his right to send the email, and said he would be apologizing to the emailer.
His spokesman said several parts of the story were not true. While no excuse, the email came at the end of a very long day that at 10 p.m. was not yet over.
Following the publication of the email exchange, Mr Sitrick sent a statement to The Atlantic's Rosie Gray saying that Mr Kasowtiz meant to apologise to the recipient. ".This is one of those times where one wishes he could reverse the clock, but of course can't".
