    Special counsel Robert Mueller is being called a hero by the attorney who served as President Donald Trump's lead White House counsel in the early stages of Mueller's investigation, NBC News reported.

    "I think the world of Bob Mueller," said attorney Ty Cobb on ABC News' "The Investigation" podcast. "He is a very deliberate guy. And he- but he's added class act. And a very justice-oriented person," Cobb said of the former FBI director.

    Cobb also said that he wouldn't have used the confrontational approach that Trump's current legal team is using and that he believes Mueller has already revealed most of his findings through indictments and sentencing memos.

    Cobb was replaced as White House counsel by Emmet Flood, an advisor to President Bill Clinton during his impeachment proceedings.
