Trump Denies Hiring Bill Clinton Impeachment Lawyer

Experts have questioned the small size of US President Donald Trump's legal team and suggested that the complexity

Mr. Cobb's primary task - producing documents for Mr. Mueller and arranging for White House aides to meet with prosecutors - is largely complete.

He also went off on NYT reporter Maggie Haberman, calling her a "Hillary flunky" while insisting she "knows nothing" about him and "is not given access". Now an attorney at the law firm Williams & Connolly, it was last Summer when he reportedly turned down a chance to work for the president. In one case, Trump asked White House counsel Don McGahn to deny reporting that the president wanted him to fire Mueller past year, and on another occasion, Trump reportedly asked his former chief of staff Reince Priebus if his interviewers were "nice".

Trump also appeared to take issue with a Times story this weekend that stated he has twice backed failed candidates and that his support for Rich Saccone in Pennsylvania's special House race this week, if Saccone loses, would "mark the third time Mr. Trump has thrown his political might behind a candidate without success".

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

The president said his team of John Dowd, Ty Cobb and Jay Sekulow is "doing a great job and has "shown conclusively that there was no Collusion with Russian Federation ... just excuse for losing". "And have shown conclusively that there was no Collusion with Russia.just excuse for losing".

Flood, a partner at Williams & Connolly, would not replace White House special counsel Ty Cobb, who joined the White House as special counsel in July. He was one of more than half a dozen top lawyers to decline to assist Trump. It is not clear what has changed since then. His comments follow a report in The New York Times claiming that Trump is looking to shake up his legal team amid some frustration with their approach.

He is assisted by Jay Sekulow, known for assisting conservative organizations in civil litigations. A representative for the White House did not immediately respond to HuffPost's request for comment.

Experts have questioned the tiny size of Trump's team and suggested that the complexity of the investigation would probably require him at some point to expand.
