Marc Kasowitz personal attorney of President Donald Trump makes a statement at the National Press Club, following the congressional testimony of former FBI Director James Comey in Washington, Thursday, June 8, 2017.

President Donald Trump's outside counsel has lambasted a random emailer after the man suggested he step down.

In series of emails obtained by ProPublica, attorney Marc Kasowitz used profanity and threatened the man. One of his four messages says: "I already know where you live. I'm on you."

The man emailed Kasowitz after reports explored why he had not sought a security clearance.

A spokesman for Kasowitz confirmed the authenticity of the emails and says Kasowitz "intends to apologize" to the man. Spokesman Mike Sitrick added that the missives were sent at the end of a "very long day."

In a statement, Kasowitz calls it "one of those times where one wishes he could reverse the clock."
