Trump Rants At Reports He’s Hiring Clinton Impeachment Lawyer
Donald Trump

For all his bravado of “no collusion” and pretending Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election will end “soon,” Donald Trump is looking to hire the lawyer who handled Bill Clinton’s impeachment proceedings.

Trump can’t be feeling all THAT confident.

From The New York Times:

The lawyer, Emmet T. Flood, met with Mr. Trump in the Oval Office this past week to discuss the possibility, according to the people. No final decision has been made, according to two of the people.

Should Mr. Flood come on board, the two people said, his main duties would be a day-to-day role helping the president navigate his dealings with the Justice Department.

Two people close to the president said that the overture to Mr. Flood did not indicate any new concerns about the inquiry. Still, it appears, at the least, to be an acknowledgment that the investigation is unlikely to end anytime soon.

Mr. Flood would not replace Ty Cobb, the White House lawyer who since the summer has taken the lead role in dealing with the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III. But Mr. Cobb has told friends for weeks that he views his position as temporary and does not expect to remain in the job for much longer.

And, of course, here comes the predictable Twitter rant from the Trumpster:

Now, the candidate Trump backed in the Alabama Senate race lost. A Republican LOST in Alabama. He doesn’t count a Senate race as part of “Congress?”
