White House hires attorney Ty Cobb to coordinate Russian Federation response

At joint press conferences with foreign leaders, protocol dictates that two questions are given to the host country's press pool, and two questions are given to US reporters.

The White House was reportedly blindsided by the revelations.

"Seems like a clear violation of protocol for this question not to go to an American journalist", Jonathan Lemire, a White House reporter for the Associated Press, tweeted.

According to Reuters, the 66-year-old white collar defense attorney has represented a number of officials in the midst of government investigations, including two during the investigation into former President Bill Clinton's administration. The first USA question went to Cecilia Vega, an ABC News reporter, who questioned Trump about the Russian Federation collusion investigation.

CNN did admit, though, the president spent "more than an hour speaking with reporters off the record during his flight to Paris", and "the president later asked that some of his remarks during the conversation be put on the record".

The White House announced Saturday the appointment of Washington lawyer Ty Cobb as special counsel, after reports that President Trump's advisors were looking to beef up the in-house team defending him in the growing Russian Federation scandal. "How do you want to continue to work with China and what do you personally think about Mr. Xi Jinping?"

US President Donald Trump on Saturday announced the appointment of a former federal prosecutor as special counsel, with US media reporting that he would manage issues linked to the Russian Federation probe.
