President Trump has openly discussed firing his lawyer Ty Cobb, according to a report in The New York Times.

The Times reported that Trump has talked with close associates about the possibility of dismissing Cobb.

But Trump has told Cobb he does not plan to let him go, the newspaper added. The reassurance was reportedly part of an attempt to push back against the idea that Trump’s team is in disarray following questions from the Times.

Trump’s lead lawyer, John Dowd, has also reportedly considered resigning from his job due to a lack of control over the president.

Dowd denied the report, telling the Times in an interview Monday he does not plan to leave his post.
