Breitbart has accused White House lawyer Ty Cobb of being borderline delusional for suggesting that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between President Donald Trump and Russia would be "over by Thanksgiving."

"White House Lawyer Ty Cobb Was Disastrously Wrong" reads Breitbart's Friday afternoon headline, which came in the aftermath of disgraced national security adviser Mike Flynn's guilty plea over lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russia.

The article, written by senior editor-at-large Joel B. Pollak, sharply criticized Cobbs over his public statements regarding the investigation.

"At the very least, Ty Cobb and his colleagues are going to be on the defensive for many months — certainly through most of 2018, if not longer. Most of it will have nothing to do with Russia. But it is not going to disappear," he wrote.
