A conflict inside former President Donald Trump’s legal team erupted into public view Saturday as one of his former lawyers went on television to attack one of his current lawyers, who has been the focus of ire from others on the team.

The former lawyer, Timothy Parlatore, withdrew this past week from representing Trump in the special counsel’s investigations into his handling of classified documents and his efforts to overturn the 2020 election. But Parlatore did not explain the reasons behind his departure at the time, saying only that it was not related to the merits of the inquiries.

Appearing on CNN on Saturday, Parlatore disclosed that his departure had been spurred by irreconcilable differences with Boris Epshteyn, another lawyer who has been working as something akin to an in-house counsel for the former president, hiring lawyers and coordinating their efforts to defend Trump.
