The Times noted that Flood, who represented former President Bill Clinton during Clinton's impeachment proceedings, turned down an opportunity to join Trump's team this past summer. A number of sources confirmed that an interview had taken place in the Oval Office, during which the two discussed the possibility of Flood joining Trump's team to help deal with Mueller's inquiry.

The apparent signal that Trump is preparing for the investigation to continue through the immediate future comes as Mueller's investigation has produced multiple indictments and as the President has seen the departure of key White House personnel.

Cobb has said he has no imminent plans to leave but has always told the president he views the job as temporary and will stay until his work is done. Flood declined to comment Saturday. Now an attorney at the law firm Williams & Connolly, it was last Summer when he reportedly turned down a chance to work for the president.

When reached by the Times, the Post and Reuters, the White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment, and a spokesperson for the law firm also could not be reached immediately for comment. Dowd and Sekulow have been part of Trump's personal legal team since last summer.

Cobb also has clashed with the White House counsel, Donald McGahn, who believed Cobb was too willing to hand over documents to Mueller when the White House could have shielded them by citing executive or attorney-client privilege.
