Trump Replacing Ty Cobb with Clinton Impeachment Lawyer Emmet Flood

(From CNBC)

President Donald Trump plans to hire a lawyer who represented President Bill Clinton during his impeachment, Emmet Flood, to replace White House lawyer Ty Cobb for the ongoing probe by special counsel Robert Mueller, the New York Times reported Wednesday.

“For several weeks Ty Cobb has been discussing his retirement and last week he let Chief of Staff Kelly know he would retire at the end of this month,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a prepared statement.

Sanders’ statement did not mention Flood.

The Times said Cobb has said he plans on remaining at the White House for the next several weeks to assist Flood in his new role.
