Former Trump White House lawyer: Robert Mueller is an "American hero"
Ty Cobb, one of the lawyers who has represented the Trump White House in the Mueller investigation, told ABC News he doesn't think the Mueller probe is a witch hunt, believing it has already detailed most of its findings in the open via indictments and sentencing memos.
Between the lines: But Cobb said Democratic investigations into Trump will continue indefinitely. “[I]t's never going to be over. ... I mean, this is going to go through 2020. And if the president is reelected, it'll go beyond that.”
“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.”— Ty Cobb on "The Investigation," an ABC News podcast
