Legal intrigue at White House from Mueller probe

A couple of President Trump’s lawyers may wish they’d been a little more selective in choosing where they sat for lunch, after a New York Times reporter overheard them discussing the drama, intrigue and mutual suspicion going on in the White House because of the investigation of Russian meddling in the presidential election. Trump lawyers Ty Cobb and John Dowd were heard “casually & loudly discussing details of Russia investigation,” according to a Tweet from NYT reporter Kenneth Vogel. Cobb and Dowd were apparently very vocal about tensions with White House Counsel Don McGahn, according to a report by The Week. The Times reports Cobb got “sharply reprimanded” by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly for his indiscretion. More on the story is available at The New York Times.
