Bill Clinton's impeachment lawyer to represent Trump
03 May, 2018, 10:13 | Author: Priscilla Morrison
Facing critical decisions in the Russian Federation investigation, US President Donald Trump has hired Emmet Flood, a veteran attorney who represented Bill Clinton during his impeachment process.
Trump recently hired Rudy Giuliani, the former New York City mayor, to help deal with the special counsel's office.
"Emmet Flood will be joining the White House Staff to represent the president and the administration against the Russian Federation witch hunt", Trump's Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said.
His retirement comes as the president's personal legal team has been negotiating the terms of a possible sit-down between Trump and prosecutors.
In the Bush White House, Flood convened a daily 10:30 a.m. meeting in his office to provide updates on ongoing congressional requests for documents and interviews, said Tony Fratto, who served in the communications office at the time.
Flood was always the top choice of White House counsel Don McGahn for the job Cobb was given last summer, according to a person familiar with the hiring decision who described Flood as a "fighter".
Mueller has been seeking an interview with the president - warning Trump's lawyers in March that he could subpoena him if Trump declines, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.
Executive privielege claims would allow Trump to shield certain communications from Mueller.
John Dowd, the leading lawyer representing Trump in special counsel matters, left the team in March. McGahn, says one source, worked hard to get Flood to the White House.
The lawyer leading U.S. president Donald Trump's response to the special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election is to resign. Earlier Wednesday, the President suggested that questions by Mueller's team about whether he obstructed justice amount to a "setup & trap". Now, the White House is anticipating a possible legal showdown over a Trump interview that could force courtroom action.
"You know Giuliani can poke this lion as much as he wants, but you have to be careful about what you ask for", said Jonathan Turley, an impeachment expert and law professor at George Washington University. She might have had an easier time selling the "retirement" line if Giuliani hadn't revealed that Sekulow wanted someone "more aggressive" than Cobb. "Emmet is a quintessential wartime consigliere". "Ty Cobb is the only Trump lawyer who hasn't had his reputation totally ruined by association with Trump".
Although Cobb does not personally represent the president, he has functioned as a critical point person for Mueller's document and interview requests, coordinated dealings with prosecutors and worked closely with Trump's personal lawyers.
The president's comments came a day after Mr Rosenstein said the justice department was "not going to be extorted" by public and private threats.
Mr Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, was subject to a raid by Federal Bureau of Investigation officers last month, and is seeking to limit the access investigators can have to his legal documents. Among the materials they sought were communications between Trump and Cohen in the lead-up to the election.
