Marc Kasowitz, President Donald Trump’s outside attorney will apologize he told to a man in a vulgarity email to watch his back, said a spokesman on Thursday.
“Mr. Kasowitz, who is tied with client matters, said he is ready to apologize to the email writer of the referenced in today’s ProPublica story,” said spokesman Mike Sitrick. “While no excuse, the email did come at the end of a long day at 10 pm.”
ProPublica published an email exchange between Kasowitz and retired public relations professional, name to be kept secret. In exchange, Kasowitz responded to the emails with profane messages.
“The person sending that email is at liberty to his opinion and I should not have replied in that inappropriate manner,” Kasowitz said in a statement. “I intend to send him an email stating that. This is the times one wishes they reverse the clock, but are unable to do so.”
According to the emails, that ProPublica had confirmed were authentic, the man had encouraged Kasowitz to give up the job as Trump’s counsel.
“And you do not know me, but I will know you How dare you send me an email like that I’m on you now,” he wrote in another email. “You are f—ing with me now Let’s see who you are Watch your back , b—h.”
The man thanked Kasowitz for his “kind reply” and said he “may be in touch as appropriate.” Kasowitz replied in part by calling the man a “piece of sh-t” and insisting “I already know where you live” while pressing the man to call him.
“You may call me. You will see me,” Kasowitz said. “I promise. Bro.”
The man told ProPublica he forwarded the email chain to the FBI to give a written record in case Kasowitz really made his threat.
