Trump Disputes Times Report on His Legal Team

Trump Disputes Times Report on His Legal Team

Though a Republican, Flood worked for president Bill Clinton during his 1998 impeachment proceedings.

President Donald Trump summoned a former impeachment defense attorney for an Oval Office meeting last week, The New York Times reported Saturday.

The Times' report said Cobb has told friends he does not expect to remain in his job for much longer. Instead, he attacked Haberman, who has interviewed him multiple times, as "a Hillary flunky" who "knows nothing about me and is not given access".

If an agreement was reached, the White House's current lawyer Ty Cobb (pictured) would not be replaced, The New York Times reports. In one case, Trump asked White House counsel Don McGahn to deny reporting that the president wanted him to fire Mueller previous year, and on another occasion, Trump reportedly asked his former chief of staff Reince Priebus if his interviewers were "nice".

Trump's personal lawyers have been handling negotiations with Mueller over the terms of a presidential interview. He also defended Vice President Dick Cheney in a lawsuit by former Central Intelligence Agency agent Valerie Plame. Flood declined to say anything when the outlet asked for a response.

President Donald Trump rebutted a recent New York Times story claiming he was considering hiring a new lawyer to handle the ongoing Russian Federation probe and called out one of the reporters responsible by name. They are doing a great job and.have shown conclusively that there was no Collusion with Russia.just excuse for losing. While Ty Cobb has acted as Donald Trump's lawyer throughout the investigation, Trump and Cobb have both made it clear that Cobb is a temporary solution to a problem growing more worrisome by the week.

Trump has seesawed between expressing confidence in Cobb's claim that the inquiry will wrap up in relatively short order and he will be exonerated, and sounding frustrated with his team's legal strategy.

He is assisted by Jay Sekulow, known for assisting conservative organizations in civil litigations.

Neither the White House nor Flood returned a request for comment.

Experts have questioned the tiny size of Trump's team and suggested that the complexity of the investigation would probably require him at some point to expand.
