McGahn seen as 'undercover operative' in White House

Washington DC. U.S. President Donald Trump nominated Kavanaugh to succeed retiring Supreme Court A

US President Donald Trump has taken to Twitter to launch another scathing attack on the New York Times and Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe, calling it "McCarthyism at its WORST".

"I allowed him and all others to testify - I didn't have to", Trump said in a tweet on Sunday.

John Dean was White House counsel for Nixon during the Watergate scandal. "Witch Hunt!" Trump wrote on Twitter after the release of the report. And the client, in this instance, would not be the man who holds the office, but the office.

Citing a dozen current and former White House officials and others briefed on the matter, the Times said that McGahn had shared information, some of which the investigators would not have known about.

Trump could have invoked attorney-client and executive privilege to prevent McGahn from talking with investigators who are examining possible obstruction of justice by the president. Cohen later became Trump's attorney when he was a prominent NY real estate developer in the '70s and '80s.

Dean tweeted a reply, saying he had "trouble using the title Mr President for someone installed by Putin".

Giuliani also tried to make the case that having Trump sit down for an interview with Mueller's team wouldn't accomplish much because of the he-said-she-said nature of witnesses' recollections.

"In 2016 I attended the Mencken conference in question and delivered a stand-alone, academic talk titled 'The Intelligentsia and the Right, '" Beattied told CNN in an emailed statement on Saturday.

Trump has repeatedly denounced the investigation into whether his campaign colluded with Moscow as a "witch hunt".

The comparison is a little odd, considering that, while McCarthy may have been disgraced for his hearings, eventual investigations did uncover some Communist sympathies, particularly in Hollywood. "From the day I announced, the Times has been Fake News, and with their disgusting new Board Member, it will only get worse!"

Dean was not impressed by Trump's behaviour.

"One of the signals for me is when Trump made his provocative remarks on immigration and then refused to apologize in the wake of overwhelming corporate and media opposition", Beattie told the Chronicle, a newspaper at Duke. It was one bungled event after another.

In his Twitter rant, Trump went 20 years back in time from Watergate, to the "red scare" of the 1950s.

Trump's hyperventilation prompted responses from top national security figures. The president went on to compare Mueller to Sen. Trump has previously criticized Haberman as a "Hillary flunky".

It was not clear Sunday whether President Trump or Chief of Staff John F. Kelly were personally involved in Beattie's departure.

The report states Trump incorrectly believed McGahn would act in the same manner as a personal lawyer would and defend his interests to investigators, but McGahn instead gave "a mix of information both potentially damaging and favorable to the president", including details of how Trump attempted to control the investigation.

"The president encouraged him to testify, is happy that he did, is quite secure that there is nothing in the testimony that will hurt the president", Giuliani said.

"Lot to cover", Dowd said in text message.

Slate asked Dean if McGahn should resign.
