From the #MuellerMemos : Don McGahn recalled how Trump pressed him to have Mueller removed and that he was asked to stop former AG Jeff Sessions from recusing himself

The Times recalls an important fact here — White House counsel Don McGahn reviewed the transcripts of Flynn’s conversations with Kislyak, and agreed he was lying

Also, another tidbit: 2 years ago, Trump complained about how then- WH counsel Don McGahn had talked him out of like yelling at Ajit Pai to his face about the failed Sinclair merger:

The transcript proves the cover-up: “Here’s how Adam Schiff got Bannon to admit that he was literally reading from a script the White House gave him (remember that Bannon’s lawyer... also represented White House Counsel Don McGahn)” via @emptywheel ⁩

NYT: McGahn and Priebus decided that Flynn needed to go and made that recommendation to Trump. @TheJusticeDept  @PressSec  @WhiteHouse  @DonaldJTrumpJr 

NYT: According to findings by the special counsel, “McGahn and Priebus concluded that Flynn could not have forgotten the details of the discussions of sanctions and had instead been lying about what he discussed with Kislyak.” @TheJusticeDept  @PressSec  @WhiteHouse  @DonaldJTrumpJr 

ALSO NOTABLE: Within days of the Flynn interview, DOJ went straight to the White House. Acting AG Sally Yates talked to McGahn about the interview and indicated they had caught Flynn in a lie. Flynn's subsequent explanation to the VP resulted in him getting fired.

Today, Trump announced he is opposed to Mueller testifying before Congress. Before the American people. He also opposes letting McGahn appear. Barr’s testimony alone — designed to protect Trump — isn’t going to cut it. They will testify. The American people deserve the truth.

I was NOT going to fire Bob Mueller, and did not fire Bob Mueller. In fact, he was allowed to finish his Report with unprecedented help from the Trump Administration. Actually, lawyer Don McGahn had a much better chance of being fired than Mueller. Never a big fan!

The D.C. Wolves and Fake News Media are reading far too much into people being forced by Courts to testify before Congress. I am fighting for future Presidents and the Office of the President. Other than that, I would actually like people to testify. Don McGahn’s respected....

As has been incorrectly reported by the Fake News Media, I never told then White House Counsel Don McGahn to fire Robert Mueller, even though I had the legal right to do so. If I wanted to fire Mueller, I didn’t need McGahn to do it, I could have done it myself. Nevertheless,....

“He (Jerry Nadler) wants a show. He wants to use Mr. McGahn as a prop to spend three hours claiming that Mr. Trump tried to obstruct the Mueller investigation. YET MR. MUELLER WASN’T OBSTRUCTED IN ANY WAY, HIS COPIOUS REPORT WAS RELEASED FOR ALL TO SEE, & THERE WAS NO COLLUSION..

I allowed White House Counsel Don McGahn, and all other requested members of the White House Staff, to fully cooperate with the Special Counsel. In addition we readily gave over one million pages of documents. Most transparent in history. No Collusion, No Obstruction. Witch Hunt!

Trump just ordered Don McGahn not to testify before the American people. Duplicitous as ever, the White House says Dems don’t get a do-over, ignoring the fact the Mueller report contemplated Congress picking up where he left off. The cover-up continues. And we will fight it.

So even though I didn’t have to do it with Presidential Privilege, I allowed everyone to testify, including White House Counsel Don McGahn (for over 30 hours), to Robert Mueller and the 18 Angry Trump-Hating Democrats, and they arrived....

IMPORTANT: A Republican lawyer representing Steve Bannon, Don McGahn, Reince Priebus in the Russia probe and Judge Alex Kozinski on harassment allegations is deciding which of Brett Kavanaugh's records are turned over. This has NEVER been done. This is the National Archives' job.

To name a few: 1-Trump claimed he never asked for loyalty from Comey - Mueller found he did. 2-Trump claimed he never asked Comey to let Flynn matter go - Mueller found he did. 3-Trump claimed he never pushed McGahn to fire Mueller - Mueller found he did.
