Ex-White House lawyer, Ty Cobb, drew comparisons between his former boss, Donald Trump, and a ‘mob boss’ amid a federal case concerning Trump’s handling of classified documents, USA Today reported.
Cobb’s remarks were made in response to fresh revelations in the federal case against Trump, including charges of obstruction of justice.
Trump allegedly instructed his former aide, Molly Michael, to deny knowledge of classified documents discovered at Mar-a-Lago, as reported by the New York Times.
Cobb said, “I hear Trump, you know, really for the first time in terms of the way this evidence has rolled out now speaking in the terms of a mob boss.”
He further commented on Trump’s “direct order” expecting Michael to lie for him.
According to Cobb, Michael’s refusal to lie to investigators adds further weight to special counsel Jack Smith’s case. He underscored the difference between loyalty and law-breaking, despite Michael being ‘very loyal to the president’.
