Former Trump Lawyer Ty Cobb: No 'Witch Hunt,' Mueller 'Is an American Hero'
One of the president's former lawyers in the Russia probe said he doesn't believe Robert Mueller is conducting a "witch hunt" and said it was important for him to be "honorably interacting" with the special counsel.
Ty Cobb served from July 2017 to May 2018 on President Trump's internal White House legal team dealing with the Mueller investigation.
He appeared at CNN's CITIZEN conference in New York today alongside Jack Quinn, who served as White House counsel from 1995-96, and declared that "Bill Clinton was the best client I ever had."
"Believe it or not, he not only listened to advice, he sought it out and particularly, frankly, when he was in crisis he wanted input, he wanted other people's thinking," Quinn said.
"I think the mythology of Bill Clinton hot-tempered is just that -- it's largely a myth," he added.
"I had a slightly different experience," Cobb chimed in, sparking laughter from the audience.
Clinton, Cobb said, "was a lawyer, had been to law school, had been a governor, was familiar with a lot of the way government worked," while Trump "came into office as a neophyte to the management of government and, as a result, he had a lot of questions about the structure of government, what the powers were in this area, that area."
