White House Attorney Predicts a Quick End to Special Counsel probe

Do you think that the Special Counsel, Robert Mueller, will be through with his investigation into Russian collusion by the end of the year? White House lawyer, Ty Cobb, who joined the White House staff on July 31 said that he thinks that all things related to President Trump will be done by the end of the year. Just who is Ty Cobb and where does he get his insight? Wikipedia has this to say about Mr. Cobb:

Cobb joined the White House’s internal legal team to manage matters related to the ongoing investigations into Russian election interference and possible collusion with the Trump campaign, starting 31 July 2017. Cobb will work within the White House, unlike other members of Trump’s legal team.[10][11][12] Cobb will work closely with Donald McGahn but report directly to President Trump.[8]

It is noted in this article that he is in constant contact with the office of the special counsel.
