Ty Cobb, the mustachioed legal professional who was a White House lawyer to President Donald Trump in the course of the Robert Mueller investigation, slammed his former boss in a brand new interview.
“[Trump] is a disaster for the Republican Party for which he prevented a Senate majority in 2020 and, as time will demonstrate, has already done the same for 2022 with his endorsements of unelectable candidates all based on their loyalty or his own driving desire for revenge,” Cobb told NBC News.
Cobb additionally mentioned Trump has been cashing in on the Big Lie over the 2020 election:
“The Big Lie has been good only for Trump and has brought him millions in donations, which some evidence suggests may have been mishandled. The Big Lie, and the related violence, election interference and other perceived misconduct, was and is an affront to this nation and its first principles. It has permanently soiled the history pages and deepened the abyss that divides our country and continues to expand due to the delusions and lack of accountability of politicians in both parties.”
Cobb has been important of Trump since leaving the White House in 2018. He referred to as Mueller an “American hero” and mentioned the Russia investigation was not a “witch hunt” as Trump had repeatedly claimed. Last week, Cobb told CNN that the investigation into Trump’s position within the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol was “justifiable.”
“I mean, think you’ve got issues of defrauding the United States, with regard to the vice president’s issue and a big lie. You’ve got potential obstruction and influencing a witness,” he mentioned. “And, of course, you got seditious conspiracy, if indeed, they can tie all those pieces together. I think that will be difficult on a sedition, but I do think that there are certainly other criminal activity worthy of investigation.”
But in his newest feedback, Cobb went additional, and even tweaked a line from a “Seinfeld” episode.
“It should be disqualifying for Trump and his political acolytes, and would have been at any other time in our history. To modify a well-known ‘Seinfeld’ quote ― SANITY NOW!” Cobb instructed NBC News.
The Seinfeld line, after all, is “Serenity Now!”
