The New York Times is reporting White House counsel Donald F. McGahn has been cooperating extensively with Mueller in at least three interviews, totaling 30 hours, over the past nine months.

Quote:
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.

Among them were Mr. Trump’s comments and actions during the firing of the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, and Mr. Trump’s obsession with putting a loyalist in charge of the inquiry, including his repeated urging of Attorney General Jeff Sessions to claim oversight of it. Mr. McGahn was also centrally involved in Mr. Trump’s attempts to fire the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, which investigators might not have discovered without him.

I don't know what to make of this. Did Trump know all along this was happening? I find it hard to believe he did. If he didn't, what is he doing right now as this news has broken? Has he went into a screaming fit?

In a new tweet he's claiming he allowed it (uh huh). But he doesn't have the power to disallow the WH lawyer from talking. He's not Trump's personal lawyer.

Then he goes on and rants about witch hunts! no collusion or obstruction.

Trump is a massive liar though and his story always changes.

Thirty hours with Mueller isn't a small amount of time. If McGahn had nothing to tell Mueller or wouldn't provide information then Mueller probably wouldn't have spent 30 hours with him. As Rachel Maddow says, "Stay tuned."
