White House counsel Don McGahn is resigning this autumn after a tumultuous stretch as President Trump's in-house lawyer.
Trump announced the departure on Twitter on Wednesday morning.
One likely candidate to replace McGahn is Emmet Flood, who joined the president's legal team in May to focus on the Justice Department's Russia investigation.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said on Wednesday morning that Trump likes McGahn and that they have a "good relationship. There's not really a lot to add here."
