White House counsel interviewed for 30 hours in Russian Federation probe

White House counsel interviewed for 30 hours in Russian Federation probe

President Trump's authorization of full cooperation was done when it was the White House's goal to conclude the Mueller investigation as quickly as possible.

In lieu of testifying to Mueller and his team, President Trump has authorized McGahn to fully cooperate to keep the president himself out of a "perjury trap", according to Dershowitz. Trump says he allowed it for transparency.

The President also took the opportunity to jab at Mueller's now year-long investigation, which has reportedly turned up little evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials looking to sway the results of the 2016 Presidential election.

McGahn and his lawyer, William Burck, made a decision to cooperate in order to show Mueller that the White House counsel had nothing to hide, according to the Times. McGahn, according to the Times story, has voluntarily provided Mueller's team a wealth of information about Trump's behavior, beyond what might be expected from someone in his position.

The report goes on to say that Trump's relationship with the White House counsel is strained, with Trump expressing frustration with McGahn for telling him "no" rather than "looking for creative ways to get him [Trump] what he wants".

The New York Times reported that McGahn, spoke with Mueller's team about Trump's firing of the Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey and his push for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to claim oversight of the inquiry, and Trump's attempts to fire Mueller.

"I think there is good reason for McGahn to believe that Trump would throw him under the bus, since Trump throws nearly everyone under the bus", Dean told Slate. today. While Trump believes McGahn is not loyal enough, McGahn has called the president "King Kong" behind his back because of his temper tantrums, the Times is reporting.

Giuliani said during "Meet the Press" that Trump didn't raise executive privilege or attorney-client privilege during those interviews because his team believed - he says now, wrongly - that fully participating would be the fastest way to bring the investigation to a close.

The revelation came amid a New York Times report, citing multiple sources, indicating that McGahn willingly spoke to the team members - who are looking into, among other things, whether President Trump obstructed justice - for 30 hours over the course of at least three separate occasions.

Dean eventually flipped on Nixon and testified about the Watergate scandal. He provided the investigators examining whether Mr. Trump obstructed justice a clear view of the president's most intimate moments with his lawyer.

@realDonaldTrump (I still have trouble using the title Mr. President for someone installed by Putin), I doubt you have ANY IDEA what McGahn has told Mueller. "They have all the information".
