Ty Cobb, the lawyer who has been representing the White House in the ongoing Russian probe, will retire at the end of May, a White House statement said Wednesday. "I want to know who cost us so much money, who crushed our kids, who forced us out of our home, all because you lost an election", he said. "It's been a privilege, and I'm confident that the matter will be in good hands with Emmet Flood".
"They're still looking for Russian Federation collusion", Michael Caputo said Wednesday on Fox News Channel's "Tucker Carlson Tonight", referring to his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee. McGahn has been reluctant to set an exit date, even as he has acknowledged to friends that he could leave the White House at some point this year.
Neither Cobb nor Flood immediately responded to requests for comment.
Mueller believes he has legal standing to subpoena a sitting president, even though such a move has never been fully tested, according to the two current United States officials. But, according to one person familiar with his conversations, he later boasted to a confidant that he had struck a deal that he believed would silence those critics: He was hiring "America's F--ing Mayor".
"It has been an honor to serve the country in this capacity at the White House", Cobb told the Times.
Cobb's retirement, though not a surprise, was nonetheless the latest evolution for a legal team marked by turnover.
Mr Trump's previous lead lawyer on the case, John Dowd, quit in March, reportedly because he felt his client was ignoring his legal counsel.
Meanwhile, the report in The New York Times, which published the leaked version of Mueller's potential questions for the President, Trump's reaction on Twitter has underscored where the issue is moving.

Critical decisions lie ahead.
His close relationship with White House counsel Don McGahn, who led the charge to bring in Flood, may help Flood have more success than his predecessors on Trump's legal team.
Justice Department officials said dozens of lawmakers and staff members from both parties have viewed thousands of classified pages, a process that now includes members of both parties being given temporary office space at the Department of Justice to review hundreds of thousands of documents. After an Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on Cohen's office and home, Giuliani also indicated that he wanted to change the discussion surrounding the $130,000 payment that Cohen made to porn actress Stormy Daniels to buy her silence about a sexual tryst with Trump. In actuality, Mueller's team agreed to provide the president's lawyers with more specific information about the subjects that prosecutors wished to discuss with the president.
Mueller is investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 election, as well as possible obstruction of justice by Trump.
Trump lashed out against the investigation in familiar fashion Wednesday, tweeting: "There was no Collusion (it is a Hoax) and there is no Obstruction of Justice (that is a setup & trap)". What are they afraid of?
"I want to know who is paying for the spies' work and coordinating this attack on President Donald Trump?" he asked.
It was unclear what Trump meant by "get involved".
