Trump lawyer Ty Cobb to be replaced by Clinton impeachment attorney

Ty Cobb became the latest attorney to drop out of President Donald Trump’s legal team as a Department of Justice probe continues to engulf the administration.

According to a statement Tuesday by White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, Cobb’s decision had been in the works for some time.

“For several weeks Ty Cobb has been discussing his retirement and last week he let Chief of Staff [John] Kelly know he would retire at the end of the month,” she said.

His replacement has been identified in media reports as Emmet Flood, who rose to national prominence in the late 1990s when he represented then-President Bill Clinton during impeachment hearings.

Cobb is expected to spend this month working to acclimate Flood to Trump’s legal team.
