An attorney with a Milwaukee-based law firm has resigned days after participating in a call in which President Donald Trump pressured Georgia’s state secretary to “find” enough votes to overturn Joe Biden’s win in the state’s presidential election.

Foley & Lardner said Cleta Mitchell has resigned effective immediately.

Mitchell was a senior partner based in Washington.

Foley & Lardner made a decision in November not to take on any clients involved in any matters related to the presidential election. Mitchell has said she was acting as a volunteer.
