Trump Denies Hiring Bill Clinton Impeachment Lawyer

Emmet Flood

Flood now works with law firm Williams & Connolly, and represented Bill Clinton during the Democrat's impeachment proceedings in 1998 amid the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

President Donald Trump returns to the White House on March 10, 2018 in Washington, DC.

As Robert Mueller's Trump-Russia investigation expands and accelerates, the president is reportedly looking to shake up his legal staff.

Trump on Sunday called the story false, but The New York Times, which was the first to report it, said it was standing behind its account.

If an agreement was reached, Flood would not replace the White House's current lawyer Ty Cobb, according to The Times.

Cobb, however, has told friends that he views his position as temporary and does not expect to stay on the job much longer, the report said.

Flood is reportedly the only person the White House has been in contact with about the leading role.

Flood's law firm, Williams and Connolly, represents Hillary Clinton, including in the email scandal, one possible reason that sources told Reuters previous year the firm turned down representing Trump as outside counsel.

Flood is a partner at the D.C. -based litigation firm Williams & Connolly LLP, which represents Hillary Clinton.

Flood also spent two years in the White House Counsel's office, where he handled executive-privilege related disputes for President George W. Bush's administration to congressional investigations and other inquiries.

Dowd told Reuters on Saturday that he did not know anything about Flood possibly joining the White House legal team. Mr. Flood declined to comment.

Neither the White House nor Flood returned a request for comment.

He tweeted out saying, "The Failing New York Times purposely wrote a false story stating that I am unhappy with my legal team on the Russian Federation case and am going to add another lawyer to help out". Marc Kasowitz, a NY litigator with a combative reputation who had represented Trump in business disputes, was replaced as head of Trump's personal legal team by John M. Dowd, who had deeper Washington experience.

Cobb is apparently nearing the end of fulfilling his main responsibilities - turning over documents and coordinating interviews between White House aides and prosecutors.

Trump then turned his focus directly on Haberman, making good on the promise of the ellipsis that concluded his (at this point nine-minute-old) tweet.
