President Donald Trump is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller to avoid any subpoenas, White House lawyer Ty Cobb said.

His comments came in an interview with Vox's Zachary Fryer-Biggs.

Cobb was asked why the White House should cooperate with the Mueller team.

"You don't have much choice; otherwise, they subpoena," he said. "As people who pay attention have noticed, there have been no subpoenas, there have been no grand jury subpoenas.

"This has gone in a very smooth way. You haven't heard any complaints from Mueller, and everything is negotiated heavily, so it's not like we just opened up the file drawers and let them come in and pick out what they wanted."

Cobb said he has no plans to leave the Trump legal team.

"I don't," he said. "The reality is my job is to make sure that the White House interacts with the special counsel in an honorable, ethical, responsive way. That's a relatively important task for the dignity of this White House and future White Houses, and it's a serious task."

Cobb insisted the administration is continuing to cooperate with Mueller and providing him the necessary information.

"I've gotten widespread cooperation throughout the administration with isolated exceptions, but I always got the materials that the independent counsel deserved," he said.

"The reality is they didn't get much of anything, if anything, that they wouldn't have gotten had we forced them to get a subpoena."

Cobb said he has not been involved in discussions to decide whether Trump should sit down with Mueller for an interview.

Earlier this year, Cobb had said: "He's ready to meet with them (Mueller's investigators), but he'll be guided by the advice of his personal counsel."
