Trump White House Continues Lawyering up as Russia Investigation Unfolds

Is Marc Kasowitz not enough anymore?

.. Cobb is “intended to be

  • traffic cop,
  • enforcer of discipline, and
  • public spokesman” for the investigation,

according to Bloomberg News, working with Kasowitz and outside lawyers and leaving the rest of the White House counsel to focus on other things. (In the Trump administration, there are always other things).

.. Meanwhile, Jared Kushner is also in the midst of a legal shakeup, with the Times reporting that his attorney Jamie Gorelick will step away from advising him on anything related to Russia, though she’ll continue to advise him on other issues. With Kushner under fire for his own meetings with Russia, that leaves plenty for Gorelick’s successor, Abbe D. Lowell, to take on.
