Trump met with Clinton's impeachment lawyer to assist in Russian Federation probe

Trump defends legal team on Russia case: 'I am VERY happy with my lawyers' Trump Just Lashed Out at NYT's Report on Turmoil in His Legal Team

In a series of tweets Sunday morning, Trump denounced a report from the New York Times saying that Washington lawyer Emmet T. Flood, who represented former President Bill Clinton during his impeachment, visited the Oval Office to discuss the possibility of helping to deal with the Justice Department. But no decision has yet been made about hiring Flood, the report said.

No agreement has been reached but the overtures to Flood indicate that Trump feels the need to beef up his legal team amid the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

The Times explained that Flood would not replace Ty Cobb, but that Cobb's primary role was document production, a task that is almost complete.

President Donald Trump reportedly met last week with Emmet Flood, a lawyer who represented President Bill Clinton during his impeachment proceedings.

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.

Levels of toxic organic compounds were up to three times higher on average in the e-cigarette users compared with the controls. The American Lung Association explained why: "There is no government oversight of these products ".

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 also represented Vice President Dick Cheney in the civil lawsuit brought by former Central Intelligence Agency agent Valerie Plame and spent two years in the White House Counsel's office during the George W. Bush administration.

Cobb is responsible for handling the White House's response to Mueller's requests, which includes producing documents and arranging interviews. Flood declined to comment Saturday.

He turned down such an opportunity as recently as last summer, The Times reported. Throughout a year ago, Cobb kept Trump from publicly airing grievances against Mueller, in part by telling him that the investigation would be wrapped up by December, or soon after - an assessment that proved too optimistic.

President Trump reaffirmed his confidence in the legal team protecting him against allegations that his campaign had colluded with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 election. Dowd and Sekulow have been part of Trump's personal legal team since last summer. One White House adviser said Flood could also be considered for the job of White House counsel.
