INSIDERS: McGahn Advised Trump To Make Bad Decisions Then Backstabbed Him
Big League Politics reported months ago that White House counsel Don McGahn is a “bad actor” working against President Donald Trump, but for some reason McGahn is still in the White House.
News has surfaced that McGahn is extensively cooperating with Robert Mueller, but Trump’s closest advisers should have fired him before this happened. McGahn is very close to Rosenstein and he and his conspirators actively advised Trump to make decisions that could set up an obstruction of justice charge.
Talk about conflict of interest!
The New York Times reports: The White House counsel, Donald F. McGahn II, 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, according to a dozen current and former White House officials and others briefed on the matter. 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. He provided the investigators examining whether Mr. Trump obstructed justice a clear view of the president’s most intimate moments with his lawyer.”
We knew this would happen!
When Sally Yates’ right-hand man at the Department of Justice Scott Schools got canned two months ago, we at BLP also pointed to McGahn as a ringleader of the anti-Trump conspiracy within the White House, reporting:
Associate deputy attorney general Scott Schools, the highest-ranking career lawyer in the Department of Justice, was hired by anti-President Trump conspirator Sally Yates in October 2016 at a key moment in the anti-Trump Deep State conspiracy.
A top official tells Big League Politics that Scott Schools, as the most trusted DOJ ethics official, told Rod Rosenstein NOT to recuse himself in any cases involving alleged Russian collusion, and that Schools is also responsible for advising Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from the case. Schools then advised Rosenstein to appoint Robert Mueller as special counsel.
The liberal magazine Slate, which called Schools the “conscience” of the DOJ last year, acknowledged that Schools advised Rosenstein to appoint Mueller and to not recuse himself.
That puts Sally Yates, the DOJ official who lost her job for refusing to obey President Trump’s travel ban, firmly at the center of the entire Robert Mueller affair. Don McGahn, White House counsel close to Rosenstein, is fingered as another bad actor in the mess.
Sally Yates also put the screws in General Michael Flynn, kicking him out of the White House, and was instrumental in helping disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok in his spirited bid to subvert the law to stop President Trump.
