White House Counsel Don McGahn Cooperating in Mueller Probe

"Disgraced and discredited Bob Mueller and his whole group of Angry Democrat Thugs spent over 30 hours with the White House Councel (sic), only with my approval, for purposes of transparency".

In 2016, U.S. intelligence agencies concluded that Russian Federation had used a state-authorised campaign of cyber attacks and fake news stories planted on social media in an attempt to turn the election against Mrs Clinton.

The newspaper also reported that, according to a person with knowledge of the President's thinking, Trump incorrectly thought that McGahn would act as a personal attorney would and exclusively defend the President's interests in interactions with the special counsel team.

TheTimes reported that McGahn and his lawyer were surprised by Trump's decision to allow him to talk with the special counsel and anxious it was a trick created to set up McGahn to take the blame for any possible obstruction charges.

His lengthy testimony - 30 hours over three voluntary interviews, according to the Times - could be crucial in determining whether the president acted with an improper, or "corrupt", intent when he took actions like firing former FBI Director James Comey, legal experts said.

There are three races left in the season. "Hopefully, we'll see him back in the vehicle soon", Hinchcliffe said . It looks like two cars touched and caused a chain reaction. "It's unfortunate but I just hope Robert is okay".

"So I believe this is a desperate special counsel who leaked this to The New York Times".

But Giuliani also seemed to indicate that he was relying on secondhand information, from Trump's former personal attorney John Dowd, to determine the extent of what McGahn had shared with Mueller's team.

White House counsel reportedly cooperated... The President's lawyers told the Times on Sunday that they believed that McGahn's almost 30 hours of interviews with the special counsel had not included any testimony harmful to the President.

"Even if I am telling the truth, that makes me a liar", Trump said. President Trump responded in a tweet storm from Bedminster, N.J., where he's been spending the weekend. "But I allowed him and all others to testify - I didn't have to".

Mueller is leading the investigation into Russian interference into the 2016 election and is examining any potential ties between the Kremlin and Trump campaign associates.

The blast was the latest in a wave of attacks that have killed hundreds of civilians, soldiers and policemen over recent days. So far more than 150 people have been killed in the fighting, according to a local member of parliament.

Mr Giuliani, in his interview, also acknowledged that the reason for the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Trump campaign aides and a Russian lawyer, arranged by Trump's son Donald Trump Jr, was that they had been promised dirt on Mr Trump's 2016 Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.

In an interview with Reuters, the President claimed he was heading up a "smooth-running machine", recognised by everyone except the Special Counsel probe.

In an interview with NBC on Sunday, Mr Giuliani was asked whether the Trump team was stalling about a possible testimony at the Mueller inquiry.

KEITH: Yes, exactly. And one thing that we learned from the Watergate experience was that - or what was settled by it is that the White House counsel represents the presidency, not the person.

A year later, Trump acknowledged the true intent of the meeting: It wasn't about adoptions, as the Trumps originally said.
