Cobb was also in charge of collecting all documents the Special Counsel had requested and turning them over to that team.
"I'm deeply grateful to the president and the chief of staff for this opportunity to serve my country", Cobb told The Associated Press on Wednesday night.
The New York Times first reported the news.
Now enter Emmet Flood, the former impeachment attorney for President Bill Clinton.
The idea that Trump has suddenly got tough might strike some on Mueller's team as ironic given the months of vitriolic tweets aimed their way.
"Ty was uncomfortable with the Mueller tweets", the source said.
Cobb took the lead of the White House team after the previous lead lawyer, John Dowd, quit in March, convinced that Trump was not following his advice. "I don't think he would be affected by malice or prejudice".
Behind the scenes, as Mr. Cobb rushed to turn over records to Mr. Mueller, his relationship soured with the White House counsel, Donald F. McGahn II, who thought Mr. Cobb should have more thoroughly reviewed documents and been willing to assert executive privilege. It is unclear if Flood will be granted a security clearance. His law firm, Williams & Connolly, is one of Washington's most prominent, with a reputation for aggressive advocacy for its clients and a history of tangling with the government.
Flood has experience in the highest of high-profile white collar cases. He was a clerk for Associate Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. It has also represented senior White House officials, including presidents.
He added: "The Senate and the House are net fishing", Caputo said.
The standoff between Dowd and Mueller led to weeks of turmoil, according to the Post, as Trump's legal team determined how to respond to Mueller's request for an interview with Trump.
Mr. Cobb, a longtime white-collar defense lawyer, was not a supporter of the Trump campaign and never viewed himself as part of that team. Despite the president saying after that meeting that no changes to his legal team makeup were coming, things have now changed.
"Some time after the campaign is over, they set up a reimbursement, $35,000 a month, out of his personal family account", Giuliani, a new addition to Trump's legal team, told The New York Times In total, Trump reimbursed Cohen $460,000 or $470,000 for the Daniels payment, which Cohen made "on his own authority", and other "incidental expenses", Giuliani said, adding that he was "not clear that" Trump knew about the Daniels payment at the the time.
Another brass-knuckle operator, Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, told CNN on Wednesday that Trump had exhausted of a team that repeatedly assured him the probe was almost done.

Trump in March announced he had brought on lawyers Joe diGenova and Victoria Toensing, but his lawyer, Jay Sekulow, acknowledged in a statement that conflicts prevented the pair from joining Trump's team. Trump has repeatedly called the investigation a "witch hunt" and said there was no collusion.
