The President is unnerved because he doesn't know what the White House counsel said to Mueller's team in 30 hours of testimony, two sources say
Mon, 20 Aug 2018 20:56:59 GMT
White House counsel Don McGahn's 30 hours of conversations with special counsel Robert Mueller's team has unnerved President Donald Trump, who didn't know the full extent of McGahn's discussions, two people familiar with his thinking said.
Why Trump let Don McGahn talk to Mueller
Mon, 20 Aug 2018 23:30:53 GMT
The decision by President Donald Trump's legal team to allow White House counsel Don McGahn to talk to special counsel Robert Mueller without restrictions was made in part because the lawyers calculated they did not have a good legal standing to prevent it and because it fit with the strategy to be cooperative with the investigation, according to sources who sought to explain McGahn's extensive interviews.

Critical moment for Trump's presidency
Mon, 20 Aug 2018 17:53:54 GMT
Donald Trump has been president for 577 days as of today. One year and seven months, to the day, of what can be described without exaggeration as the least predictable presidency in modern history. And yet, for all the wackiness and whip-sawing of these first 19 months, there's a very credible case to make that the next two-ish weeks are the most critical of Trump's presidency to date -- and will set a course for the remaining years of his presidency that will be very difficult to alter.
