Cobb said: ‘I think the president is in serious legal water, not so much because of the search, but because of the obstructive activity he took in connection with the January 6 proceeding.’ 

He specifically cited the president’s ‘attempts to interfere in the election count in Georgia, Arizona, Pennsylvania and perhaps Michigan.’ That was the first time in American history that a president unconstitutionally attempted to remain in power illegally.’

However, Cobb does not believe the investigation over documents taken from Mar-a-Lago threatens Trump. 

The former lawyer was willing to be critical of his former boss, saying that Trump is ‘a deeply wounded narcissist’ and ‘doesn’t believe he lost’ to Joe Biden in 2020. 

Cobb added: ‘He is often incapable of acting other than in his perceived self-interest or for revenge. I think those are the two compelling instincts that guide his actions.’ 

He didn’t sugarcoat what he felt Trump did, saying that the former president violated the 14th Amendment of the Constitution by giving ‘aid and comfort and three hours of inaction with regard to what was happening’ at the Capitol.

Cobb says that a joint declaration by both houses in Congress could block Trump on those grounds from a 2024 run.

He also felt that what Trump did trying to stop Vice President Mike Pence from certifying the election results was ‘criminal’. 

‘Interfering with Pence, saying Mike deserves this when people are shouting ‘Kill Pence,’ I think that’s outrageous,’ Cobb added.

He has said in the past that while he served and defended Trump during the Mueller investigation, he did not think the probe was a ‘witch hunt’ as Trump often calls it and said that Robert Mueller is ‘an American hero.’  

Trump has yet to comment through official channels or on TRUTH Social regarding Cobb’s statements.
