Trump lashes out at ‘failing’ New York Times, says he ‘allowed’ WH counsel McGahn to cooperate

President Trump on Sunday slammed the New York Times over a report that White House counsel Don McGahn has “cooperated extensively” with special counsel Robert Mueller’s team.

“The failing @nytimes wrote a Fake piece today implying that because White House Councel [sic] Don McGahn was giving hours of testimony to the Special Councel [sic], he must be a John Dean type ‘RAT.’ But I allowed him and all others to testify – I didn’t have to,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

“I have nothing to hide and have demanded transparency so that this Rigged and Disgusting Witch Hunt can come to a close. So many lives have been ruined over nothing – McCarthyism at its WORST! Yet Mueller & his gang of Dems refuse to look at the real crimes on the other side – Media is even worse!” Trump continued.

The New York Times detailed McGahn’s cooperation with Mueller’s team in its piece on Saturday, noting it’s “unusual” for a lawyer to “share so much with investigators.”

“In at least three voluntary interviews with investigators that totaled 30 hours over the past nine months, Mr. McGahn described the president’s fury 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,” the Times said.

While blasting the publication on Sunday morning, Trump also went after Hillary Clinton.

“No Collusion and No Obstruction, except by Crooked Hillary and the Democrats. All of the resignations and corruption, yet heavily conflicted Bob Mueller refuses to even look in that direction. What about the Brennan, Comey, McCabe, Strzok lies to Congress, or Crooked’s Emails!” Trump tweeted.
