team, and, as the New York Times revealed, President Donald Trump's team does not know what he was asked and what he said.
Michael Beschloss, a presidential historian, says McGahn's cooperation with the special counsel is reminiscent of John Dean, White House counsel under President Nixon, who was eventually fired by Nixon during the Watergate scandal. In addition we readily gave over one million pages of documents.
"I have demanded transparency so that this Rigged and Disgusting Witch Hunt can come to a close", Trump tweeted. "They made up a phony crime called collusion, and when there was no Collusion they said there was obstruction (of a phone crime that never existed)".
Trump's accusation that the probe could have an impact on the fall elections comes as his lawyers and Mueller's team continue a lengthy back-and-forth over whether Trump will sit down for an interview with the special counsel's team.
According to the Times, McGahn and Burck were anxious the privilege waiver had been given to set up McGahn in the obstruction probe and let him take the fall for the firing of FBI Director James Comey in May 2017.
Donald Trump on Sunday angrily denounced the federal probe of Russia's 2016 election meddling as "McCarthyism at its WORST!", as he slammed a report that the White House counsel had given investigators detailed testimony about the president's actions at key moments now under scrutiny.
Mueller is leading the investigation into Russian interference into the 2016 election and is examining any potential ties between the Kremlin and Trump campaign associates.
In an interview with Reuters, the President claimed he was heading up a "smooth-running machine", recognised by everyone except the Special Counsel probe.
"So if I say something and he says something, and it's my word against his, and he's best friends with Mueller, so Mueller might say: 'Well, I believe Comey, '" Trump said.
"I allowed him and all others to testify - I didn't have to", Trump said in a tweet.
During his three interviews with special counsel Robert Mueller's team, McGahn did not provide information that would be incriminating to the President, a source told CNN.
Rudy Giuliani, who joined the president's outside legal team after Dowd resigned, told Reuters on Saturday that Trump's lawyers had been in contact with McGahn's counsel after he was interviewed and possessed "emails that say he provided nothing that was damaging or incriminating to the president". The person also said Trump is not anxious because he does not feel he did anything wrong. 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.
President Trump's tweets and Giuliani's totally misleading and newly manufactured statements of the law are all false.
This isn't the first controversy to erupt between Trump and his top White House lawyer.
"He just told the truth as he was required to".
