A prosecutor with special counsel Robert Mueller's team has withdrawn from two high-profile cases that spun off from the probe.


Politico's Darren Samuelsohn noted on Twitter that Jeannie Rhee "filed notice in federal court that she's withdrawing as an attorney of record" from the "Russian troll farm" case against Concord Management/Internet Research Agency.

Samuelsohn then noted that Rhee also withdrew from the case against Trump confidante Roger Stone and Mueller's mystery grand jury case as well.

Earlier in April, national security journalist Marcy Wheeler noted that Rhee also withdrew from the case against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
