As President Donald Trump continues to denounce the special counsel investigation against him as a “witch hunt,” former White House attorney Ty Cobb expressed his support of Robert Mueller’s probe in a recent interview.

“I’ve known him for 30 years as a prosecutor and a friend and I think the world of Bob Mueller,” he said. “He is a very deliberate guy, but he’s also a class act and a very justice-oriented person.”

Cobb went on to call Meuller an “American hero” with a “backbone of steel,” countering Trump’s characterization of the prosecutor and his investigation.

“It’s not my view that it’s a witch hunt,” he said, offering his view on Trump’s public statements on the matter.

“I object to that approach, but it’s his choice,” Cobb said.
