WASHINGTON (Meredith/AP) — Ty Cobb, the White House lawyer leading President Donald Trump’s legal team regarding the Russia investigation, is retiring at the end of the month.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Cobb had been discussing his retirement for several weeks. She says Cobb informed White House chief of staff John Kelly last week that he would retire at the end of May.
