President Trump's White House legal team went through a shakeup this afternoon as Ty Cobb announced his retirement, opening the door for his replacement, Emmett Flood, a partner at Williams & Connolly.

Why he matters: Flood is likely to get buzz because he was part of President Clinton's legal team during his impeachment proceedings — though he didn't play a prominent role, per the NYT.
