Trump assails Mueller following Times report

President Trump is once again calling into question Special Counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing Russian Federation probe, suggesting the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director is "just someone looking for trouble".

Like me, McCarthy also believes the Times' account of the interviews reinforces the view that there is no obstruction of justice case against the president. The paper said McGahn was motivated in part by fear that the president might set him up to be held responsible.

As White House counsel since the beginning of the Trump administration, McGahn could have rare insight into the president's thinking.

He is also looking into whether Trump obstructed justice by trying to derail the probe.

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.

On Saturday evening, McGahn's lawyer confirmed the White House counsel had cooperated with Mueller's team. "I could run it if I want", the president said. Mr. McGahn made a decision to fully cooperate with Mr. Mueller.

"This is a strong indication that the White House and the president, despite what the president has been saying that always makes things look more dramatic then they are, are not concerned about the Mueller investigation finding things that put the president in jeopardy", he said.

He also vowed to "wipe out" nepotism from the cricket body, a promise in line with the new government's agenda. I wish PCB all the best and hope our cricket team goes from strength to strength.

Dean, who has criticized Trump in recent years, voiced support for McGahn.

One of those describing the conversation said Trump yelled at him loudly, "It's your fault!" It remains unclear if McGahn answered questions on collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. Joseph McCarthy's search for Communists in the US government in the 1950s.

Trump's personal legal team has urged the special counsel to wrap up its investigations by the the midterm elections this fall, and Trump has maintained his innocence through the duration of the inquiry, calling the Mueller investigation a "witch hunt".

Also on Saturday, Mr. Trump tweeted that he had encouraged Mr. McGahn and White House staff to cooperate with investigators.

"It is not clear that Mr. Trump appreciates the extent to which Mr. McGahn has cooperated with the special counsel", the Times reported. I think that, after the Lindsey case that Mr. Wisenberg referred to, and, frankly, after the USA vs. Nixon case, what the courts have widely recognized is that executive privilege is a qualified privilege, meaning that it gives way to and certainly can give way to a criminal - duly authorized criminal investigation.

Trump's escalation of the war with Mueller comes as a jury deliberates whether to convict former campaign chief Paul Manafort on charges he lied to banks in order to secure loans and hid millions offshore to thwart the Internal Revenue Service.

Trump reportedly tried to get Jeff Sessions involved in the Russian Federation investigation and contemplated firing Mueller.
