President Donald Trump on Sunday slammed a story alleging that he was pondeirng the hiring of an impeachment lawyer, in part because he was unhappy with his legal time.
The move appears to be an acknowledgment that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation is "unlikely to end anytime soon", two sources close to the president told the Times.
Emmet Flood represented President Bill Clinton during the impeachment process and discussed a day-to-day role helping Trump navigate his investigations.
If an agreement was reached, Flood would not replace the White House's current lawyer Ty Cobb, according to The Times. Cobb has also reportedly told friends he does not expect to remain in his job much longer, and some advisers have suggested Trump invite his longtime NY lawyer, Marc E. Kasowitz, to take the lead again.
Flood was interviewed over the summer about joining the White House Counsel's Office to manage the special counsel probe. 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.
Flood's law firm, Williams and Connolly, represents Hillary Clinton, including in the email scandal, one possible reason that sources told Reuters a year ago the firm turned down representing Trump as outside counsel.
Flood's law firm also represents Hillary Clinton, including in the email scandal, which could be a possible reason the firm turned down representing Trump as outside counsel, sources told Reuters.
Trump, notably, did not say anything about the key portion of Haberman's report-that the president invited Flood to the White House as he seeks a legal strategy to head off potential impeachment proceedings. While Ty Cobb has acted as Donald Trump's lawyer throughout the investigation, Trump and Cobb have both made it clear that Cobb is a temporary solution to a problem growing more worrisome by the week.
In addition to serving on Clinton's legal team, Flood served as special counsel to former President George W. Bush on executive privilege cases during his administration. A representative for the White House did not immediately respond to HuffPost's request for comment.
