"I'm not part of the legal team and wouldn't be part of those discussions", she said when asked whether she'd been caught off guard.
"As robust as the efforts have been to delegitimize normal Department of Justice operations, the seismic activity on the political Richter scale of the president of the United States asserting the Fifth Amendment in a criminal case - I can't even imagine it", said Andy Wright, who served as counsel for President Obama and for Vice President Al Gore.
By now, witnesses have testified in ways that contradict what Trump has said.
He pointed out that numerous investigators on Mueller's team were Democrats and Clinton supporters, adding that Mueller himself worked for former President Barack Obama's administration. I would love to. "I have to find that we are going to be treated fairly because everybody sees it now, and it is a pure witch hunt".
"Emmet Flood will be joining the White House staff to represent the president and the administration against the Russian Federation witch hunt", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.

But the Falcons infamously squandered a 28-3 lead late in the third quarter, losing to the New England Patriots 34-28 in overtime. Franklin signed a $36.5-million, five-year free-agent contract with the Chargers in March 2015, but got only two years out of it.
"And Trump is attacking Mueller's right even to question him, tweeting this quote: 'The questions are an intrusion into the President's Article 2 powers under the Constitution to fire any Executive Branch Employee...what the President was thinking is an outrageous...as to the President's unfettered power to fire anyone..."
This is the terrain on which Trump can win: an us-vs-them fight, before Congress and country, where not only the alleged crimes of Trump are aired but also the actual crimes committed to destroy him and to overturn his victory. Why aren't we having Republican people doing what all these Democrats are doing? "If I thought it was fair, I would override my lawyers".
Russia's meddling in the 2016 election, however, has been the subject of several Republican-led congressional inquiries. Trump is anxious that the payment - which prevented a potential scandal just days before the 2016 election - might constitute an illegal campaign donation if Cohen used his own funds, as he has claimed, and was not reimbursed. Democrats on the committee contested numerous report's findings.

She was with the president in Bedminster, New Jersey, last May when he fired FBI Director James Comey-a decision that Mueller is reportedly examining as potential obstruction of justice. Trump continues to adamantly deny that any obstruction has taken place and has suggested that questions about it would amount to "a setup" and "trap".
President Trump's lawyers are once again making waves. Comey said in the interview.
White House lawyer Ty Cobb, who repeatedly urged cooperation with special counsel Robert Mueller and assured the president such a strategy could shorten the investigation, announced he would leave his post at the end of the month. This source said there is a 50-50 chance of an interview happening.
While it is reportedly unclear at this point why Flood is joining Trump's legal team, Flood refused to join last summer when the president's personal lawyer Marc Kasowitz was overseeing the president's case with the special counsel, according to The Times.
Most legal experts are speculating that the leak actually came from Trump's own team (with or without the president's knowledge) since the wording of the questions looks more like the questions Trump's legal team is anticipating after speaking to Mueller's team.
