Trump says ‘nothing to hide’ from special counsel Mueller

It noted that McGahn played a key role in stopping Trump from firing Mueller, who was made special counsel after Comey's firing.

McGahn has met with Mueller's team at least three times and has been questioned by the special counsel's team more extensively than any other member of the White House staff who has gone for an interview, the sources said.

U.S. President Donald Trump insisted Sunday that his White House counsel isn't a "RAT" like the Watergate-era White House attorney who turned on Richard Nixon, and he blasted the ongoing Russian Federation investigation as "McCarthyism". In addition we readily gave over one million pages of documents. "Most transparent in history", Trump continued in the tweet.

"No Collusion and No Obstruction, except by Crooked Hillary and the Democrats".

Responding to the McCarthy tweet, Hume wrote simply, "This is ridiculous".

Giuliani told NBC News that if Trump had considered trying to remove Mueller that would not be criminal.

Specific incidents mentioned in these conversations included moments surrounding Trump's decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey, and his reported preference that Attorney General Jeff Sessions oversee the investigation, according to the Times.

Trump's team of personal lawyers had initially instructed McGahn to cooperate with Mueller with the goal of bringing the investigation to an end as quickly as possible, and with the premise that the president had nothing to hide.

News of McGahn's extensive cooperation with Mueller is likely to complicate the already-strained relationship between the two men. "It was, he believed, the only choice he had to protect himself", The Times reported.

Some members of the media are very Angry at the Fake Story in the New York Times.

Dean, a frequent critic of the president, was the White House counsel for Nixon during the Watergate scandal.

This article was written by David Nakamura, a reporter for The Washington Post.

In yet another tweet he added, "This is why the Fake News Media has become the Enemy of the People. So bad for America!", Trump said.

Trump apparently is trying to make the comparison that Mueller is taking part in a McCarthy-like conspiracy theory.

"I have nothing to hide. and have demanded transparency so that this Rigged and Disgusting Witch Hunt can come to a close". A special Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee investigated McCarthy's initial claims about Communists infiltrating the State Department and found them to be "a fraud and a hoax." .

Also Sunday, Giuliani claimed "truth isn't truth" in describing why his client should not meet with the special counselor. "I allowed [McGahn] and all others to testify ― I didn't have to".
