Donald Trump and his people KNEW that the White House counsel Donald McGahn was talking to the Special Counsel Mueller’s people….
But McGahn and his lawyer began to have worries why Trump and Co. didn’t care…
McGahn decided to begin to cooperate with Mueller’s people AGAINST Trump it is reported by the NY Times….McGahn was/is worried that Trump was setting him up ….This could have Trump’s lawyers arguing about executive or attorney client privileges ….But that counter could prove useless if Trump is being looked at doing a coverup or obstruction of a crime…
This the case of another person working FOR Donald Trump that moved to cover THEIR ass against a guy who cares only for himself….
White House counsel Donald McGahn “has cooperated extensively in the special counsel investigation, sharing detailed accounts about the episodes at the heart of the inquiry into whether President Trump obstructed justice, including some that investigators would not have learned of otherwise,” the New York Times reports.
“In at least three voluntary interviews with investigators that totaled 30 hours over the past nine months, Mr. McGahn described the president’s furor toward the Russia investigation and the ways in which he urged Mr. McGahn to respond to it.”
“For a lawyer to share so much with investigators scrutinizing his client is unusual. Lawyers are rarely so open with investigators, not only because they are advocating on behalf of their clients but also because their conversations with clients are potentially shielded by attorney-client privilege, and in the case of presidents, executive privilege.”
Also interesting: “Mr. McGahn and his lawyer, William Burck, could not understand why Mr. Trump was so willing to allow Mr. McGahn to speak freely to the special counsel and feared Mr. Trump was setting up Mr. McGahn to take the blame for any possible illegal acts of obstruction.”
There is probably little that Mueller’s people do NOT know about the workings of the Trump campaign and White House with all the sources of information they have had come to them…..
