Trump Speechwriter Fired After For Attending White Nationalist Event In 2016

NYT reports White House counsel cooperates with 'Russiagate' probe Trump says he allowed

In a tweet Saturday night, President Trump said he allowed and encouraged McGahn's cooperation with the special counsel.

The Times' story says McGahn has provided information that the Mueller team otherwise would not have learned about, citing a dozen current and former White House officials and other individuals briefed on the matter.

But McGahn, who as White House counsel is not the president's personal lawyer, has repeatedly made clear to the president that his role is as a protector of the presidency, not of Trump personally.

McGahn's testimony likely would be central to any obstruction of justice charge brought by Mueller.

The former FBI director James Comey (fired by Trump in an event looked at by Mueller regarding potential obstruction of justice), fired deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe and fired FBI agent Peter Strzok are among those reported under threat of similar treatment.

There are fears even more people could die as countless people are still marooned and desperate for food and drinking water. Over 3 million Malayalees work in the GCC members states, where over 2,00o associations, groups and clubs represent them.

Mr. McGahn cautioned to investigators that he never saw Mr. Trump go beyond his legal authorities.

Trump - who had already addressed the issue late Saturday, August 18 - stepped up his attacks on the story and the probe in a series of angry morning tweets, slamming The New York Times for implying that McGahn had turned on him.

McGahn has told the Special Counsel's investigators about Trump's responses to the Russian Federation investigation, the president's firing of FBI Director James Comey, and attempts to pressure Attorney General Jeff Sessions to reassume control over the probe after he recused himself. Trump and the outside lawyers initially representing him in the inquiry hoped that transparency would help to quickly put an end to an inquiry that began more than two years ago.

Trump upbraided the press for supposedly fixating on the Mueller investigation and said it should focus more energy on the corruption of Democrats.

People close to McGahn also said he grew concerned Trump had chose to allow him to cooperate in the investigation to construct a defense that he was following McGahn's poor legal advice on decisions such as the Comey firing, which could be viewed as obstruction of Justice, according to the report. "Rigged Witch Hunt!" he later wrote.

McCarthy says, though, that the Mueller investigation is not about prosecuting Trump.

Also Sunday, Giuliani claimed "truth isn't truth" in describing why his client should not meet with the special counselor.

President Trump compared the Russian Federation investigation to McCarthyism in a Twitter tirade yesterday, insisting that his White House counsel isn't a "RAT" like the Watergate-era John Dean. As an officer of the court, he added, Mr. McGahn would have had to resign if he thought the President did anything illegal.

Giuliani also tried to make the case that having Trump sit down for an interview with Mueller's team wouldn't accomplish much because of the he-said-she-said nature of witnesses' recollections.
