WASHINGTON — President Donald J. Trump attempted to fire White House counsel Don McGahn on six occasions, but in each case the so-called “legal industrial complex” blocked his moves, according to high-level sources. Trump’s attempted replacements in most cases turned down the job.
McGahn is in the news courtesy of the New York Times (his favorite leaking avenue) for sitting down with Robert Mueller for 30 hours to discuss obstruction of justice-related matters. Mueller is trying to pin Trump for obstruction after finding no Russian collusion on Trump’s part. McGahn is also suspected of giving Trump advice with Mueller’s best interests at heart.
McGahn is extremely close with Rod Rosenstein, and the two act as mutually beneficial protectors of one another. Rosenstein and Jeff Sessions never had a relationship and never even spoke before President Trump was elected. So why did Sessions pick Rosenstein to be his number two? He trusted McGahn. It is still unclear at this time why he trusted McGahn, but the possibility of blackmail has been discussed.
The mainstream media is completely unwilling to criticize Don McGahn because he is a well-known leaker to the New York Times and the Washington Post among other outlets.
McGahn has also blocked several of Trump’s desired picks for White House roles.
McGahn might eventually leave the White House after Supreme Court Justice pick Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed. The leading contender to take his job is Emmet Flood, who replaced Trump lawyer Ty Cobb (whom McGahn hated).
Who is Emmet Flood? None other than a former BILL CLINTON ATTORNEY in the Clinton impeachment case!
All of this just goes to show how the Department of Justice and private law firms monopolize the White House, regardless of who the president is, and it shows how completely boxed-in President Trump is by his own lawyers.
Big League Politics exposed how Sally Yates henchman Scott Schools was working against Trump, giving the president bad advice. Schools was fired from the Department of Justice but McGahn clearly should have been fired too.
But Trump went 0-for-6 on firing him.
Chuck Schumer Threatens Supreme Court Justices: “You Will Pay the Price”
Chuck Schumer outright threatened two Supreme Court Justices when speaking at a pro-abortion event on Wednesday, using vengeful and vindictive language when discussing recent pro-life court case rulings reached by the court.
“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh…. You have unleashed the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
Such rhetoric might be expected in one of Kim Jong Un’s regular missive of threats against the United States. But it’s shocking to hear a sitting Senate Majority Leader slam nonpartisan Supreme Court Justices in such a bold fashion, totally disregarding the court’s traditional independence from everyday politics.
The rally by a pro-abortion group was being held in advance of an expected court ruling on a Louisiana abortion law. The law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at state hospitals.
Republican legislators slammed Schumer for his irresponsible and threatening rhetoric at the abortion rally after footage of his language was seen on Twitter.
Did Senate Democrat leader Schumer just threaten two conservative justices? Where is the media?

Schumer may have been alluding to potential Democratic plans to impeach Kavanaugh, and possibly even Gorsuch, removing them from the Supreme Court. The Court’s now conservative majority has placed a major stumbling block in the way of the Left’s preferred strategy of seizing power through judicial activism.
Schumer’s unprecedented language, especially coming from a senior party official who should remain level-headed, demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willing to cast aside all formal norms of federal politics and government. They’re willing to do whatever it takes in order to get their way.
