Don McGahn, the White House counsel notorious for leaking to the mainstream press, is leaving the White House, according to a President Donald Trump tweet that McGahn did not see coming.
McGahn joins the ignoble ranks of Rex Tillerson in the history of Trump Twitter firings. McGahn will stick around until Brett Kavanaugh gets confirmed to the Supreme Court. McGahn sat down with Robert Mueller for 30 hours in a move that infuriated Trump supporters. High-level sources told me that Trump has tried to fire McGahn six times but all of his other choices were too afraid to accept the job and push McGahn out, which would inflame the Legal Industrial Complex that runs Washington.
White House Counsel Don McGahn will be leaving his position in the fall, shortly after the confirmation (hopefully) of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court. I have worked with Don for a long time and truly appreciate his service!

McGahn was caught by surprise.
Trump's announcement of Don McGahn's departure came as a surprise, including to McGahn.
He was not aware that Trump planned to send the tweet before it posted, a source tells WaPo.
McGahn's reaction was, "Of course it happened this way."https://t.co/ltWJ4S6dlS

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.
HUGE: Court Documents Reveal Shot Kenosha Rioter Joseph Rosenbaum Was a Convicted Child Rapist
Convicted pedophile Joseph Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation at the Kenosha riots.
New court documents of the Pima County, Arizona circuit court reveal that Joseph Rosenbaum was convicted of various sex crimes against children in Arizona in 2002.
Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation while rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin last week. He is seen on camera lunging at 17-year old Kyle Rittenhouse, who eventually shot him, claiming he acted in self defense when Rosenbaum attempted to take the AR-15 rifle he was carrying. Rittenhouse attempted to flee the scene, and was pursued by two other rioters, one armed with a gun. He tripped and fell, and when the other rioters assailed him, he shot them both. Rosenbaum and one other rioter were killed, and a third wounded. Rittenhouse has been charged with first-degree murder in the shootings.
Watch video of the shootings and decide for yourself.
Shortly after Rosenbaum was identified as one of the deceased individuals, it became public knowledge that he was on the Wisconsin sex offender registry, for crimes committed in Arizona.

The man who may very well have set off the violent altercation is a convicted pedophile, judging from the court documents that were published Wednesday. A presentence report reveals that Rosenbaum committed a range of sex crimes against several boys from the ages of nine to eleven years old, including outright rape.
More documents reveal the legal proceedings against Rosenbaum.
Rosenbaum would be convicted of two of the eleven total charges.
Some leftists had speculated that Rosenbaum was merely a victim of the criminal justice system upon the revelation that he was a convicted sex offender, claiming he had been merely been railroaded for sexual activity with his 17-year old girlfriend as an adult, or something of the like. The new documents disprove such an assertion, demonstrating that Rosenbaum was convicted for some of the most heinous child sex crimes known to society, including the outright rape of children.
Previous criminal records of parties involved in use-of-force incidences aren’t usually admissible in court cases, but Rittenhouse’s argument of self defense appears more credible when his word is placed against the conduct of a convicted pedophile.
