Trump Denies Hiring Bill Clinton Impeachment Lawyer


Make the compromise: Ending chain migration is a small price to legalize Dreamers Assessing Trump's impeachment odds through a historic lens MORE during his impeachment trial to the White House legal team to handle special counsel Robert MuellerRobert Swan MuellerSasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russia probe MORE's inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 elections. Two of those people said there is no final decision yet.

President Donald Trump reportedly met last week with Emmet Flood, a lawyer who represented President Bill Clinton during his impeachment proceedings.

The Times explained that Flood would not replace Ty Cobb, but that Cobb's primary role was document production, a task that is almost complete.

Cobb, however, has told friends that he views his position as temporary and does not expect to stay on the job much longer, the report said.

It's unclear if Flood expressed interest in joining the White House after last week's reported meeting. He also represented former Vice President Dick Cheney in a civil suit brought by former Central Intelligence Agency officer Valerie Plame.

The White House is negotiating with Mueller over a possible interview with the president. Flood declined to say anything when the outlet asked for a response. One White House adviser said Flood could also be considered for the job of White House counsel.

NY lawyer Marc Kasowitz was leading Trump's legal team at the time, a role veteran Washington lawyer John Dowd took over last summer. I am VERY happy with my lawyers, John Dowd, Ty Cobb and Jay Sekulow.

White House officials did not immediately answer a request for comment when the Times reached out. "They are doing a great job and have shown conclusively that there was no Collusion with Russia.just excuse for losing", tweeted Trump early Sunday morning. Now an attorney at the law firm Williams & Connolly, it was last Summer when he reportedly turned down a chance to work for the president.

Cobb is apparently nearing the end of fulfilling his main responsibilities - turning over documents and coordinating interviews between White House aides and prosecutors. Marc Kasowitz, a NY litigator with a combative reputation who had represented Trump in business disputes, was replaced as head of Trump's personal legal team by John M. Dowd, who had deeper Washington experience.
