White House counsel isn’t a ‘RAT’ like Nixon’s John Dean

NYT reports White House counsel cooperates with 'Russiagate' probe Trump says he allowed

Robert F. Bauer, a White House counsel under U.S. President Barack Obama, said McGahn's lawyer may have taken the most prudent course for his client by not addressing "each and every detail about the questions that were specifically asked and the specific answers given". News outlets reported that Trump and his lawyers do not know the full scope of what McGahn told Mueller's team of investigators. The president claimed that Mueller's investigation into Moscow's interference in the 2016 US elections has been far more nefarious than anything McCarthy ever did. Warning against voting Democratic this November - the president believes that immigration is a winning wedge issue for him going into the midterms - Trump said, "Blue wave means crime".

Trump also Sunday compared the investigation to McCarthyism. Steve Farley, Kelly Fryer and David Garcia have said they would withdraw those troops, while Ducey says their presence makes Arizona safer.

The president also said that the two reporters who wrote the story, Michael Schmidt and Maggie Haberman, knew that it was not true that McGahn had "turned" on the president.

Giuliani said on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday morning that he had not debriefed McGahn, but nevertheless the legal team had "a good sense" of what McGahn told Mueller's team through Dowd.

On Monday, Trump complained that Mueller's team was filled with angry Democrats that wanted to influence the election by dragging the investigation out. Dean ultimately cooperated with prosecutors and helped bring down the Nixon presidency in 1974, though he served a prison term for obstruction of justice.

President Trump praised an Hispanic-American Border Patrol agent as someone who "speaks ideal English" during a White House ceremony honoring those who enforce the nation's immigration laws. In doing so, Trump also bragged about what he said was the transparency his administration has reportedly shown in dealing with the Russian Federation investigation (despite reports that Trump's team has been stalling and adding conditions for an actual interview).

US President Donald Trump went on the offensive on Sunday, invoking the spectres of Richard Nixon and Joseph McCarthy, starkly polarising figures from American history, in a frenzied attack on The New York Times. Joseph McCarthy in the 1950s to expose communists.

Giuliani said that discussions over a presidential interview continue with Mueller's office and that he would not be rushed into having Trump testify "so that he gets trapped in perjury". That's a lot of visiting and that's just the bottom of what they know.

The Times report cited a dozen unnamed current and former White House officials and "others briefed on the matter".

Critics of the president have recently compared his decision to target the security clearances of critics and those involved in the Russian Federation investigation to the "enemies list" created by the Nixon White House to keep track of political opponents they meant to target with punitive measures.
