Trump says WH lawyer McGahn isn't 'a John Dean type 'RAT

Trump says WH lawyer McGahn isn't 'a John Dean type 'RAT”

The president's Monday morning tweets follow a series of weekend Twitter tirades about the investigation amid reports by the New York Times that White House Counsel Don McGahn has cooperated "extensively" with Mueller's team.

In his tweet, Trump again called the Times "failing", but the newspaper actually reported a healthy second-quarter profit.

Dean, a frequent critic of the president, was the White House counsel for Nixon during the Watergate scandal. He testified against the president, pled guilty to obstruction of justice and was held at an army base.

The president asserted that he'd given McGahn "approval" to meet with investigators and sought to discredit Mueller and his team.

Nevertheless, the president has complained in recent days that he should have exerted more privilege over documents and interviews, according to a Trump ally.

Musk says hes cracking under stress of Tesla job
And, earlier this year, Musk tweeted that "most people don't know this, but comets [are] mostly made of cocaine". As of Friday afternoon, Tesla's shares were trading at around $305, down more than 9 percent for the day.

In a series of early morning tweets, Trump said White House counsel Don McGahn and other aides had been encouraged to be fully transparent in their testimony to Special Counsel Robert Mueller as part of an effort to bring the Russian Federation matter to a quick close.

McGahn, who serves as the president's lawyer in his executive role, is a critical firsthand witness to many key moments of Trump's presidency that Mueller's team is studying. Cohn later became Trump's attorney when he was a prominent NY real estate developer in the 1970s and '80s. "So bad for America!" he said.

"Dean fired back, "@realDonaldTrump (I still have trouble using the title Mr. President for someone installed by Putin), I doubt you have ANY IDEA what McGahn has told Mueller. "I just want to know you are loved, you are loved and respected as much as anybody in this country". Steve Farley, Kelly Fryer and David Garcia have said they would withdraw those troops, while Ducey says their presence makes Arizona safer.

Trump has used the "enemy of the people" tag repeatedly, attacks decried by the media for potentially encouraging violence.

The New York Times said it stands by its story.

China: Trade talks with the USA are back on
The countries imposed steep tariffs on billions of dollars of each other's exports this summer and have threatened more . Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer has been meeting with Mexican officials as the US works to renegotiate NAFTA.

The "disgusting new board member" the president is likely referring to is Sarah Jeong, a writer with a history of making racist comments toward white people.

Dean was not impressed by Trump's behaviour. Rosenzweig responded, "I think it's a no-brainer, and it's a no-brainer for a more fundamental reason-which is that in the end, he doesn't have that much of choice". "I see the same thing happening with Trump". Trump wrote on August 19. In the 1950s, McCarthy claimed that communist and Soviet spies had infiltrated the government, going on to accuse some - without evidence - of treason. Trump asked Anzaldua, who was seated in the audience and hesitated.

Trump's hyperventilation prompted responses from top national security figures.

This week, in a widely criticised move, Trump stripped former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan of security clearance.

"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. News outlets reported that Trump and his lawyers do not know the full scope of what McGahn told Mueller's team of investigators.
