Caught Our Eye

Ex-Trump spokesman working for Malaysian PM

Posted by Keturah Hetrick on April 12, 2018

A spokesman who resigned from President Donald Trump's legal team last year is now helping the prime minister of Malaysia.

Mark Corallo is working through Ashcroft Law Firm, where he is a senior adviser, to provide Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak with "legal advice and counsel regarding improper [third-party] actions... to attempt to destabilize the government of Malaysia," according to a Justice Department disclosure released this week.

Ashcroft Law, founded by former Attorney General and Sen. John Ashcroft (R-Mo.), has not yet disclosed further details about their work, nor have they named other team members who may also be working as Malaysian foreign agents.

Mark Corallo, who has worked for Ashcroft Law since 2007, served as President Trump's chief spokesman into the Justice Department's collusion probe until Corallo's resignation last July.
