Marc Kasowitz is President Trump’s personal attorney for the Russia case and has represented him in various matters over the years, including the failed defense of the president in the Trump University lawsuit.
Kasowitz, it now appears, has one hell of a temper, much like his famous client.
A public relations executive who asked not to be identified read an article by ProPublica this week detailing the somewhat sordid past of Kasowitz and decided to email the attorney with a subject line which read, “Resign Now.”
Most lawyers would ignore such an email, but Kasowitz went into an online rage, firing off a series of angry missives, one of which stated:
“I’m on you now. You are fucking with me now Let’s see who you are Watch your back , bitch.”
In another email, Kasowitz told the PR exec:
“Call me. Don’t be afraid, you piece of shit. Stand up. If you don’t call, you’re just afraid. I already know where you live, I’m on you. You might as well call me. You will see me. I promise. Bro.”
The man Kasowitz harassed online forwarded the attorney’s emails to the FBI so there would be a record just in case the enraged Kasowitz followed through on this threats.
Danielle Citron, a University of Maryland law professor and the author of a book on online harassment said it might be possible to charge Kasowitz with issuing a direct threat:
“’I already know where you live’ and ‘you will see me. I promise.’ That’s incredibly troubling language. If I’m a prosecutor I’m going to think hard about that.”
No wonder Trump wanted Kasowitz to represent him. It sounds like Kasowitz, much like Trump, loves to issue empty threats, as if he’s some kind of mafioso. But also like Trump, I’m willing to bet that deep inside Kasowitz is nothing more than a terrified little wimp pretending to be tough.
