Ty Cobb Resigns from Hogan Lovells To Join Trump Legal Team

Hogan is the firm that is kicking butt in the Hawaii Muslim Ban case and so Ty had resigned https://finance.yahoo.com/news/ty-cobb-resigns-hogan-lovells-090629122.html

Ty Cobb, a longtime Hogan Lovells partner based in Washington, D.C., has joined President Donald Trump's legal team as special counsel. His last day at Hogan Lovells will be July 30, the firm's chairman said in an all-firm email sent Friday afternoon.

The White House had not officially announced the appointment as of late Friday afternoon, and several leaders and a spokesman for Hogan Lovells did not respond to requests for comment. Cobb's email was set to an out-of-office auto reply Friday, saying he's currently on travel.

The National Law Journal obtained a copy of the email written by Hogan Lovells chair Stephen Immelt announcing Cobb's departure from the firm and confirmed his move with two other sources.

Bloomberg News, which first reported Cobb's hire, said he would serve as traffic cop, enforcer of discipline and public spokesman for the president's legal team as it grapples with simultaneous congressional and Justice Department investigations into the Trump campaign's Russia contacts, which are consuming the president's politics more every day.

1. Cobb' firm experts on foreign bribery laws

The Steele dossier included allegations of Trump vulnerability to blackmail related to Bribes Trump paid. The Corrupt Foreign Practices Act outlaws many kinds of foreign bribes and Trump has complained about that law.

It seems likely to me that Trump probably knew his properties were used for money laundering and he probably paid illegal foreign bribes. And that Mueller will probably charge him for something like that. But I could be wrong.
