President Donald Trump's lawyer for the Russia investigation, Marc Kasowitz, wants to apologize for profane and threatening emails sent to a critic commenting on an unflattering story about the attorney.

The hostile tirade was published by ProPublica on Thursday – and comes after the outlet previously ran a profile of Kasowitz that included allegations of a drinking problem.

"Mr. Kasowitz, who is tied up with client matters, said he intends to apologize to the writer of the email referenced in today's ProPublica story," the lawyer's spokesman Mike Sitrick said in a statement, The Atlantic reported.

"While no excuse, the email came at the end of a very long day that at 10 p.m. was not yet over," Mr. Kasowitz said. "The person sending that email is entitled to his opinion, and I should not have responded in that inappropriate manner. I intend to send him an email stating just that. This is one of those times where one wishes he could reverse the clock, but of course I can't."

Kasowitz's rant was sparked by a stranger's email commenting on the ProPublica profile.

"Watch your back, b**ch," Kasowitz emailed back, as well as calling him a "piece of s**t" and saying "I already know where you live, I'm on you."

Kasowitz was retained in May as Trump's lawyer on the Russia case, after the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller to lead the investigation.

He has represented Trump on multiple cases in the past, The Atlantic reported.

Adding to Kasowitz's problems is a separate report in The New York Times this week Trump had become "disillusioned" with his longtime lawyer.

Kasowitz and his team, in turn, have become frustrated with Trump, and with Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, whom they regard as an "obstacle and a freelancer," the Times reported.
