Trump Says RNC Lawyer Charlie Spies’ Resignation Is ‘Great News’ After Ex-President Learns Of His Criticism

Donald Trump called the announcement that the Republican National Committee’s top lawyer is leaving the role after only a few months “great news.”

“Great news for the Republican Party. RUINO lawyer Charlie Spies is out as Chief Counsel of the RNC. I wish him well!” the former president posted on Truth Social.

Spies is departing from the RNC roughly two months after taking the job as part of a broader staffing overhaul once Trump became the leading GOP presidential nominee. There were reported tensions between Trump and Spies after Spies criticized Trump’s false election fraud claims.

“Charlie approached RNC Chief of Staff, Chris Lacivita, about potential time commitment conflicts, and it was agreed that, while we appreciate and value Charlie’s expertise and professionalism, he cannot do this role full time and still maintain the obligations to his law firm that he has spent years successfully building,” RNC spokesperson Danielle Alvarez said in a statement.

The RNC hired Spies in March, along with former One America News host Christina Bobb and former Trump administration attorney Bill McGinley, hoping the latter two would lead legal efforts regarding election integrity.
