Rowley also represents former Trump White House aide Stephen Miller and Trump-allied lawyer Cleta Mitchell in civil litigation related to the congressional probe. He has also represented Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.), who was subpoenaed by the select panel.
After working as a prosecutor in two U.S. attorney’s offices (including in the Eastern District of Virginia), Rowley joined the white shoe firm Holland & Knight, according to an announcement. He later had stints at Baker & McKenzie, Schertler & Onorato and Arnall Golden Gregory, according to his LinkedIn.
Rowley has worked on multiple cases related to national security. He represented a Chinese businessman who entered a guilty plea after the Justice Department charged him with conspiring to smuggle defense articles out of the U.S. And he represented a transportation company sued for its connection to the detention of an innocent man at a CIA black site prison in Afghanistan.
Rowley and a Trump spokesperson did not immediately respond to requests for comment. The news was first reported by The New York Times.
