Trump Looking To Add Clinton Impeachment Lawyer To Russia Probe Legal Team

Emmet Flood

Respected Washington attorney Emmet Flood met with Trump in the Oval Office earlier in the week, according to The New York Times. Make the compromise: Ending chain migration is a small price to legalize Dreamers Assessing Trump's impeachment odds through a historic lens MORE during his impeachment trial to the White House legal team to handle special counsel Robert MuellerRobert Swan MuellerSasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russia probe MORE's inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 elections.

Ty Cobb, a White House lawyer who had been leading Trump's response to the inquiry, has been predicting that special counsel Robert Mueller III's probe is nearly over.

However, Trump is denying it completely.

Cobb has said he has no imminent plans to leave but has always told the president he views the job as temporary and will stay until his work is done.

Flood's corporate profile outlines his experience in several high-profile legal fights, including the Clinton impeachment process and former Vice President Dick Cheney in a civil suit from former Central Intelligence Agency officer Valerie Plame. Flood declined to say anything when the outlet asked for a response. Neither the White House nor Flood responded to requests for comment.

A bust of BJP icon Syama Prasad Mookerjee was blackened and its features smashed with a hammer in Kolkata's Keoratola crematorium. The BJP leaders were unfazed and in fact condoned the vandalism, stating Lenin was a foreigner and his statues should be removed.

NY lawyer Marc Kasowitz was leading Trump's legal team at the time, a role veteran Washington lawyer John Dowd took over last summer.

Trump's personal lawyers, John Dowd and Jay Sekulow, have been negotiating with Mueller over the terms of a presidential interview, the newspaper reported. He also represented former Vice President Dick Cheney in a civil suit brought by former Central Intelligence Agency officer Valerie Plame. "The writer of the story, Maggie Haberman, a Hillary flunky, knows nothing about me and is not given access".

The Times reported that Trump is considering adding the lawyer that helped Bill ClintonWilliam (Bill) Jefferson ClintonShould the Rob Porter outcome set the standard?

In addition to serving on Clinton's legal team, Flood served as special counsel to former President George W. Bush on executive privilege cases during his administration.

On Sunday morning, Trump responded to the report, which described signs the President might be considering a possible shakeup on his legal team, by saying he is not unhappy with the team and taking a dig at Times reporter Maggie Haberman, who has interviewed Trump several times, including a lengthy discussion in the Oval Office past year.
