This is an interesting hire. It has been anticipated since the term impeachment has been thrown around.


Cobb will be the central in-house figure on matters related to the investigations into Russian interference in the election and the Trump campaign’s possible involvement, working closely with Trump’s outside legal team led by Marc Kasowitz and John Dowd. Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon, sought to model the White House’s Russia war room in the vein of former President Bill Clinton’s operation during the investigations of his White House in the 1990s, two people familiar with the matter said.


Can we point out the bias? I knew that you could!

Another look from another source.

Ty Cobb will now be in charge of overseeing the Trump administration's legal and media response into various ongoing investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion with the president's campaign.

I guess my only question is; will Cobb be on offense, or defense. Well it turns out:

Cobb will help enforce "discipline" in both President Trump and the White House. Bloomberg reported he is "intended to be traffic cop, enforcer of discipline, and public spokesman."

You need a score card to keep up with the changing lawyers in Trumps WH. Jared just lost Isikoff.

Needing to hire so many lawyers probably doesn't speak favorably on Trump politically. believe me....

It was leak from inside the white house. Trump has insulted so many of his staff, they feel no loyalty to him and he brought all these leaks and problems down on himself....irony

Do you mean Gorelick? Isikoff as far as I know is a journalist.


"As we have stated, once Bob Mueller and three of our partners left the firm to form the Special Counsel's Office, we advised Jared to get independent legal advice on whether to continue with us as counsel," Gorelick said in a statement.

"As a result of this process, Jared decided that Abbe would represent him in the Russia-related inquiries. We are currently helping Abbe’s team. We will continue to work on the matters for which we were originally retained, with regard to ethics compliance, the SF-86 process, and related issues," she added.


Seems perfectly legit.

You're correct, it is Gorelick. I think I'd change my name....believe me.

Doubtful. IMO from what I've read, he will just be doing some PR and legal advise as it pertains to Muellers investigation.

If it dips into that or forced Mueller to go there, more power to them.
