Mediaite’s Colby Hall on Trump’s Former Lawyer Praising ‘American Hero’ Mueller: Special Counsel a ‘Certified Badass’


Mediaite founding editor Colby Hall spoke on Tuesday to our sister site, the Law & Crime network, about President Donald Trump‘s former lawyer giving a vote of confidence to Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Former White House attorney Ty Cobb is back in the news this week for an interview he gave to ABC News’ The Investigation in which he praised Mueller as a “very justice-oriented person” whose investigation is not a “witch hunt” as Trump claims. As Hall analyzed Cobb’s remarks during an appearance on Law & Mediaite, he said that reinforce Mueller’s credibility while damaging the counter-attacks on the investigator popular in Trumpworld.

“When the former attorney is undermining what Trump is saying about this investigation, that doesn’t do him any favors,” Hall told Law & Crime host Vincent Hill.

Hall also noted that Cobb called Mueller an “American hero” because of the bravery he showed while serving in the Vietnam War. Based on those remarks and and a glowing appraisal from Attorney General Bill Barr, Hall called Mueller a “certified badass” who carries a level of respect that insulates him from smears.

The rest of the conversation centered around when Mueller might release his findings, and whether Barr will allow them to be seen in full by the public.
