White House

Ty Cobb Takes On The Neocons

Published

on

President Donald Trump is bringing in Washington super-lawyer Ty Cobb to run defense inside the White House on the “Russia” investigations. Cobb, who is related to the first-ever Baseball Hall of Famer, worked on the other side of the aisle when U.S. officials had to lawyer up during the Clinton administration. But he’s not a partisan and his ability to get the job done is prized by the Trump White House.

Cobb brings some stability and unity to the pro-Trump legal effort, which is already getting its wires mixed up. Son-in-law Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka retained the services of major Hillary Clinton supporter Jamie Gorelicka partner at WilmerHale, where Robert Mueller served as partner until May, when he signed on to become the government’s special counsel in the “Russia” case. Gorelick was the one who conveniently disclosed Kushner and Don Jr.’s meeting with a Russian attorney in Trump Tower (after Kushner previously did not disclose it). In other words, Gorelick outed Don Jr.’s meeting.

On Friday, news came in that Gorelick is “stepping back” on the case. She is handing over duties to Kushner’s other lawyer Abbe Lowell.

Now, Cobb can consolidate the Trump defense efforts inside the White House, while Jay Sekulow and Trump’s outside lawyers hammer away at other aspects of the case.

It is becoming increasingly clear in Washington that the Deep State has been trying to set up Trump on the “Russia” issue for a very long time now. The Russian lawyer who met with Don Jr. and Kushner in Trump Tower was allowed into the country to work a case opposite the Department of Justice lawyer Preet Bharara, a major Trump critic who is on Mueller’s team in the Russia case. This, insiders believe, could prove to be the monumental conflict-of-interest that gets Bharara bumped from the Russia case and undermines Mueller’s entire team right out of the gate.

Mueller’s team is staffed with former Hillary Clinton attorneys and Democratic donors.

Supreme Court Contender Amy Coney Barrett Visits White House as Trump Prepares to Announce Pick

She’s reportedly the frontrunner.

Judge Amy Coney Barrett visited the White House on Monday, as President Donald Trump zeroes in on selecting a nominee to fill the vacant seat on the US Supreme Court.

Barrett is reportedly a front-runner for the judicial nomination. She’s a generally conservative judge, with a staunch pro-life record. Her track record on immigration law issues is generally conservative.

Barrett currently serves as a circuit judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has advised President Trump that she is his preferred candidate for the seat on the court.

President Trump had confirmed that he plans to nominate a woman to fill the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died of complications from pancreatic cancer on Friday.

Democrats have launched a full-fledged fit urging President Trump to give them a break and decline to nominate a conservative justice, but they won’t be so lucky. Republican Senators and President Trump have rallied around the notion of appointing a justice before the November election, fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities.

Trump confirmed that he would be revealing the identity of his judicial nominee on Friday or Saturday, taking a few extra days to vet candidates. Florida Judge Barbara Lagoa is reportedly another candidate being considered for the nomination.

It’ll be inherently harder for incensed, power-thirsty Democrats to attack a female judicial candidate. Maybe they’ll alienate swing female voters through waging a scorched earth campaign to block the confirmation of Barrett, who is a mother of seven.
