Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano on Wednesday said that President Donald Trump’s decision to oust Ty Cobb as White House attorney was long overdue, because it means he’s now recognizing just how much trouble he could be in.
Napolitano started out by calling Cobb’s replacement, former Clinton impeachment lawyer Emmet Flood, a “brilliant” attorney who is widely recognized as one of the best in the country.
That said, Napolitano warned that his presence at this stage of the investigation still might not be enough to get the president out of legal jeopardy.
“This is very late in the game for a change of this magnitude,” Napolitano said. “There is no one on the president’s team who has been there since Day One. And with the departure of Ty Cobb, there will be no one on the president’s team who’s personally familiar with the hundreds of thousands of pages of documents that the president has surrendered to special counsel.”
That said, the legal analyst said that Trump was at least finally coming around to realizing that Mueller’s probe represents a major threat to his presidency.
“The president finally recognizes how serious the Mueller probe is,” he said.

July 4 re-opening still on after employee at private sports club owned by billionaire governor tests positive for coronavirus
After at least three complaints alleging lax reopening practices at West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice’s luxury resort hotel, a kitchen employee has tested positive for the coronavirus at a residential and sports club affiliated with The Greenbrier.
Local Health Department officials directed a 14-day quarantine for potentially exposed employees at The Lodge, a restaurant at the Greenbrier Sporting Club, and the venue will remain closed until July 10. Festivities planned at the club for July 4 will go on, but with food from other facilities.
"While the events of the past few days certainly have thrown us a curve ball, we have reached out to our friends and colleagues in the area to pull together a festival that will have something for everyone," the director of operations at the sporting club, Allen Wills, told its 400 members in a Tuesday night email, obtained by ProPublica.
