White House Counsel cooperates with Russian Federation investigation

April FrancisAug 20, 2018

The former White House speechwriter said they visited to deliver a "stand-alone, academic talk titled 'The Intelligentsia and the Right.' I said nothing objectionable and stand by my remarks completely".

Jury deliberations in Paul Manafort's first (of two) trials are expected to end this week, and whether special counsel Robert Mueller can secure a guilty verdict against the man who led Trump's campaign will be a pivotal moment for the probe, which Trump continues to attack as a "witch hunt".

McGahn shared some information investigators would not otherwise have known, The Times said, about events including Trump's attempts to fire Mueller.

According to the president, some members of the media were "very angry" about the New York Times report and called to complain and apologize, which he called "a big step forward". "McGahn is doing right!" he wrote on Twitter.

"Tough as he was, Roy [Cohn] always had a lot of friends, and I'm not embarrassed to say I was one", Trump wrote in the Art of the Deal, as quoted Sunday by CNN host Jake Tapper.

So the White House counsel and his attorney came up with a strategy to cooperate as extensively as possible with the special counsel in order to prove that there was no wrongdoing by McGahn, the newspaper reported.

That partnership helped England recover from a top-order collapse that saw them slump to 89 for four at lunch on the third day. Barring captain Kohli , none of the top-order batsmen have found ways to survive, let alone score runs in the first two Tests.

The Times reported that McGahn's decision to cooperate was partly due to the fact that the President's initial legal team had chose to fully cooperate with Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, believing their client had nothing to hide and they could bring a quick end to the probe.

"All of the resignations and corruption, yet heavily conflicted Bob Mueller refuses to even look in that direction", Trump wrote.

"When you tell me that, you know, he should testify because he's going to tell the truth and he shouldn't worry, well that's so silly because it's somebody's version of the truth".

Trump's former personal lawyer, John Dowd, told Reuters on Saturday he was aware McGahn had spoken extensively with Mueller's team.

In another message, the president suggested that the collusion and obstruction for which he is under investigation were actually committed by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party. McGahn, he said, isn't a "John Dean type 'RAT, ' " the president tweeted, in a reference to the White House attorney who turned on President Richard Nixon in the Watergate scandal. "Mr. McGahn answered the Special Counsel team's questions fulsomely and honestly", William Burck said, explaining that the President did not ask Mr. McGahn to refrain from discussing any matters.

His lengthy testimony - 30 hours over three voluntary interviews, according to the Times - could be crucial in determining whether the president acted with an improper, or "corrupt", intent when he took actions like firing former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, legal experts said. Without that necessary context, it's impossible to know whether McGahn provided any valuable information - or whether that information hurts or helps the White House.
