A lawyer for President Donald Trump continues to assert that special counsel Robert Mueller's probe, as it pertains to the White House, will be completed by January, telling Axios that there's "just no there there."

Outside of something unforeseen — "Acts of God, illness" — that might delay it by a day or two, attorney Ty Cobb told Axios that the guilty plea of Michael Flynn late last week is the end, not the beginning of Mueller's examination into the White House.

"I am saying the interviews will be completed by the end of next week which I have said often and which has been quoted by 50 news outlets over the last month or more," Cobb told Axios.

"We do not anticipate the long awaited Flynn indictment will delay the Special Counsel's conclusion of the inquiry into the White House. Just no there there."

It echoes the statement Cobb released Friday after the news of Flynn's plea.

"The conclusion of this phase of the Special Counsel's work demonstrates again that the Special Counsel is moving with all deliberate speed and clears the way for a prompt and reasonable conclusion," Cobb wrote in the statement.

A confidant of the president expressed concern to Axios that Cobb's assertions are "happy talk" and that Trump "actually believes" it.
