Emails to Trump legal team proves they have no idea what Don McGahn said to Robert Mueller

Published

on

President Donald Trump had a meltdown in wake of reports that White House Counsel Don McGahn was turning into a “rat” against the president. While Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani claimed McGahn testified with approval and support of Trump, The New York Times reported Sunday the legal team has no idea what he said.

The report revealed that an email to current members of Trump’s legal team cited John Dowd saying they could exert privilege later, after waving it for McGahn to speak to Mueller.

“President Trump’s lawyers do not know just how much the White House counsel, Donald McGahn, told the special counsel’s investigators during months of interviews, a lapse that has contributed to a growing recognition that an early strategy of full cooperation with the inquiry was a potentially damaging mistake,” The New York Times reported Sunday.

The president’s lawyers said Sunday that they didn’t believe McGahn said anything that would hurt the president. However, McGahn’s lawyer gave only a small amount of information about what was said to Mueller.

”That has prompted concern among Mr. Trump’s advisers that Mr. McGahn’s statements could help serve as a key component for a damning report by the special counsel,” The Times said.

Published

On Saturday, Politico reported that allies of President Donald Trump want former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to hit the campaign trail with the president, believing him to be a hero in the eyes of the president's supporters.

"Now, after a prolonged battle against what Trump’s biggest supporters see as a rigged judicial system staffed by Obama-era bureaucrats, Flynn’s status as a deep state-fighting warrior has only grown," reported Anita Kumar and Gabby Orr. "And with Flynn on the verge of potentially having criminal charges dismissed altogether, Trump allies are pushing the campaign to give Flynn the ultimate comeback: hitting the campaign trail for the president, according to nine people inside or close to the Trump campaign."

Why is Alexander Vindman being driven out of the Army? He’s not a suck-up

Published

on

The United States Army is at heart like a college fraternity. At the top are the generals, the officers of the frat — seniors who have spent long years working their way to a position of privilege and power. Just beneath them are the colonels, juniors who have signed on to do the frat's shit work, hoping to be recognized by the seniors and rewarded by becoming a general, one of the frat's elected officers. Below them are the lesser members of the frat, the majors and captains and lieutenant colonels, and at the bottom are the pledges, the lieutenants, who are going through initiation into the mysterious customs and ways of the fraternity that is the Army.
