White House Counsel Don McGahn is to step down this fall, President Trump has announced. News of McGahn’s departure comes after it was revealed he was questioned by Robert Mueller’s ‘Russiagate’ investigation.
“White House Counsel Don McGahn will be leaving his position in the fall, shortly after the confirmation (hopefully) of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court,” Trump tweeted on Wednesday. “I have worked with Don for a long time and truly appreciate his service!”
McGahn has served as White House Counsel and assistant to Trump since January 2017, and worked on the President’s campaign one year beforehand. McGahn made the news earlier this month when it was revealed that he had been cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing and still fruitless ‘Russiagate’ probe.
