Trump pushes back on report he's 'unhappy' with legal team

The story also reported that Trump has been looking to shake up his legal team so he can change his approach to the special counsel inquiry.

Trump apparently was referring to the five special congressional races Republicans won in 2017 to keep House seats - in Georgia, Kansas, Montana, South Carolina and Utah. Flood was one of a half-dozen top litigators Trump reportedly tried to hire to replace Kasowitz past year, but they all turned down the job.

Haberman, who has been granted several Oval Office interviews with Trump and has known him since her work at the New York Post, responded "Lol" in a tweet of her own. No final decision has been made, according to two of the people. If Flood agreed, his duties would consist of "a day-to-day role helping the president navigate his dealings with the Justice Department".

The move comes as the probe into Russian election meddling in the 2016 presidential election appears to be gaining steam.

Flood, who declined to represent Trump last summer, would not replace Cobb if he took the job, according to the Times.

"I am VERY happy with my lawyers, John Dowd, Ty Cobb and Jay Sekulow". They are doing a great job and have shown conclusively that there was no Collusion with Russia.just excuse for losing.

New England Patriots: Grading the Danny Shelton trade
Shelton , a 6-2, 335-pound defensive tackle out of Washington , was selected 12th overall in the 2015 NFL Draft by the Browns . While Shelton won't provide the Patriots with much a pass rusher, he is a massive man that is very strong against the run.


In private conversations, Mr. Trump has seesawed between expressing confidence in Mr. Cobb's claim that the inquiry will wrap up in relatively short order and that he will be exonerated, and sounding frustrated with his team's legal strategy.

On Sunday morning, Trump responded to the report, which described signs the President might be considering a possible shakeup on his legal team, by saying he is not unhappy with the team and taking a dig at Times reporter Maggie Haberman, who has interviewed Trump several times, including a lengthy discussion in the Oval Office previous year.

President Donald Trump is reportedly in talks with a veteran lawyer who represented Bill Clinton in his impeachment proceedings.

White House officials did not immediately answer a request for comment when the Times reached out.

Trump called Haberman - the newspaper's top White House correspondent and who has covered Trump since his time in NY - a "Hillary flunky, (who) knows nothing about me and is not given access".
