Former United States Attorney General Alberto Gonzales on Monday said it was possible that President Donald Trump still does not understand that White House counsel Don McGahn isn’t his personal lawyer.

During an interview with CNN’s John Berman, Gonzales was asked whether he thinks Trump knows that McGahn’s job is to defend the White House as a whole, and not to act as the president’s personal “fixer,” as estranged Trump attorney Michael Cohen once did.

“It is hard for me to say, I don’t know what kind of conversations have taken place between Don McGahn and the president,” Gonzales admitted. “So as to whether or not he fully understands that, I don’t know.

Published

on

In an examination of the record-breaking number of Republican lawmakers who have decided to quit or retire despite holding a seat in solidly conservative congressional districts, one lawmaker admitted that he grew weary of having to deal with Donald Trump's daily Twitter habit and other shenanigans -- so he is calling it quits.

As the Washington Post reports, "Since Trump’s inauguration, a Washington Post analysis shows that nearly 40 percent of the 241 Republicans who were in office in January 2017 are gone or leaving because of election losses, retirements including former House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (Wis)."
