(WATCH) Former Trump Lawyer Ty Cobb: Mueller Is American Hero, Investigation Is No Witch Hunt
To help him face the Mueller Investigation, Donald Trump hired some of Washington DC’s most prominent lawyers. Ty Cobb was among his first hired. The mustachioed attorney was genial and willing to comply with FBI requests. Cobb was replaced in May of 2018 by Emmet Flood, who is known as a more combative legal representative.
Cobb recently spoke to ABC News about the investigation and made some claims that are sure to upset the president. The lawyer said that the investigation is not a “witch hunt. He also stated that Robert Mueller is an American hero.
While Cobb does not feel Mueller is running a witch hunt, he doesn’t believe there is proof of collusion. He told ABC, “There’s no link to Trump or the campaign. The same thing with Manafort — they just filed an 800-page sentencing memorandum, and in 800 pages there’s no reference to collusion.”
Cobb also has a high opinion of Robert Mueller. When asked if he agree’s with Trump’s opinion of Mueller, he said:
“I think Bob Mueller’s an American hero … even though he came from an, arguably, privileged background, he has a backbone of steel. He walked into a firefight in Vietnam to pull out one of his injured colleagues and was appropriately honored for that. I’ve known him for 30 years as a prosecutor and a friend. And I think the world of Bob Mueller. He is a very deliberate guy. But he’s also a class act. And a very justice-oriented person.”
