If President Trump were in any way guilty of colluding with the Russians to influence the 2016 election or any real criminal actions, his closest lawyers would likely be concerned, at least privately.
The fact that we now know at least one of them isn’t speaks volumes.
A recent email exchange between a prankster Twitter user named @SINON_REBORN posing as White House social director Dan Scavino and White House special counsel Ty Cobb opened a fascinating window into Cobb’s true concerns about the Mueller investigation into the Trump campaign.
In the exchange, Cobb expressed his belief President Trump is about to receive a “clean bill of health” in the investigation.
Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn, however … not so much.
“I have great confidence there is nothing there implicating the President or the White House. Manafort and Flynn have issues separate and apart from the [White House] that will cause the investigation to linger but am hoping we get a clean bill of health soon,” Cobb wrote in the Wednesday email that became public the next day when the veteran prankster released them to Business Insider.

Last month, Cobb went on record to say he believed in Trump’s innocence, but that’s what anyone’s attorney would be expected to say. But expressing it privately is a whole other deal.
Cobb has never publicly mentioned Flynn and Manafort’s legal situations. The investigation started as a look into possible Russian meddling, but has since expanded to engulf the pair’s various business dealings and work with foreign governments.
This comes nearly simultaneously as FBI Director Christopher Wray stated he had “not detected a whiff of interference” in the Trump-Russia investigation. The Trump administration had been accused of trying to meddle in the probe. Of course.
