I haven't seen this posted on here. 30 hours should be enough to get all the information you would want from an individual right?


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

On Saturday evening, McGahn’s lawyer confirmed the White House counsel had cooperated with Mueller’s team. “Mr. McGahn answered the Special Counsel team’s questions fulsomely and honestly,” William Burck said, explaining the president did not ask McGahn to refrain from discussing any matters.

Let's take note here that Trump had tweeted earlier that he encouraged McGahn to be fully transparent and open with investigators. McGahn's lawyer also stated the president did not ask McGahn to refrain from discussing any matters. Are these lengthy interviews then an indication that the investigation is rapping up and final evidence is being gathered? It seems that way. There's another motivation, McGahn’s fear he could be placed in legal jeopardy because of decisions made in the White House that could be construed as obstruction of justice so he's merely covering all basis.... all 30 hours of them.

The president continues to regard the investigation as a witch hunt given this month's drama with Sessions and Rosenstein among others. All this echos the Watergate invesitgation which spanned 2 years.

White House counsel does not have attorney-client privilege so its not like he could try to hide behind that. In addition to Trumps former lawyers, Trump himself also told Mcghan to answer questions.

1.4 million documents and 32 people interviewed regarding the bs Trump Russia crap and Trump has not stopped nor has he invoked executive privilege for any of it.

McCabe / Strzok and company on the other hand have invoked their 5th amendment rights.

The jury is still out regarding Manafort and the longer it drags out the more im inclined to think they cant reach a consensus on Manafort. Some of the questions the jury has sent to the judge also lead me to believe Mueller is in trouble in this case. The jury also asked for an evidence breakdown but the judge denied that request (The SC actually made up a board showing the evidence and how it linked but because they never used it in court nor their closing arguments it cant be used now).

Mueller also failed to disclose to the defense that one of the charges, a fraud issue with a bank, was actually resolved by the bank (yet mueller charged him anyways and didnt tell the defense it was resolved).

Papadopolis has filed suit against the government regarding his plea deal. He requested discovery and the SC denied the request (for those unfamiliar if you take a plead deal you are usually waiving your right to sever areas and discovery is one of them).

The Flynn mess still has not been resolved and the judge in that case took the unusual step of ordering the SC to provide discovery to Flynn even though he waived it with the plea deal.

I am not really sure what the SC thinks its doing other than dragging peoples names thru the mud and financially destroying them.

Kennedy comes to mind and I am thinking more and more that its a very real possibility. The more info that comes out the louder the left screams and threatens.

Yep. That will be the last resort.
Just hope the secret service is on its game and can project the President against the rabid and hateful far left terrorists.

No idea.. The judge asked that exact same question when he ordered both parties to appear before him to explain why they keep delaying sentencing.

The White House grants the Special Counsel Unlimited interviews with anyone in the administration, and over 1 million documents have been turned over. (Without the B.S. and delays that DOJ Rosenstein gives Congress)

The President says that he wants to make sure NO DOUBT REMAINS after Mueller clears him of breaking any laws.

Yeah, over the last 9 months. Reported like it just happened lol. Typical fake news.
Respect to the President for the transparency and not using executive privilege. If only Obamas spying cronies were as forthcoming.

Hillary they cleared in a snap, allthough she was knee deep corrupted and tied with Russians.

Makes one wonder what the state of democracy and rule of the law really is.

....and yet... after 7 GOP lead investigations into her actions, they still couldn't come up with anything.

Are they in on it as well?

The one this Administration and congress has had every opportunity to appoint one... yet have not? What was Trump's promise on the campaign trail?

After 7 GOP lead investigations leading to nothing of substance to charge Hillary with, you have very little room to justify another investigation.

Now back to the OP, the topic eh? Plenty of other Hillary threads.

No, I disagree that it echoss Nixon in anyway, we all know your history here, so any summation of yours is taken with a grain of salt 😌

As pointed out, full cooperation 😏

However, I can't help but laugh that this was a real struggle for you to remain as unbiased as possible, but coildn't help it and added in your Obstruction angle of no merit.

No flag, No star.

Really a Nixon meme?

Backasswards there.

Im sorry...i was replying to YOUR comment. If you don't want it responded to, don't mention it. And especially don't mention it then grandstand when someone has the kindness to actually take a moment to respond to the nonsense you post.

Right...

Because ''anonymous sources'' whom are ''familiar with the situation'' in the past have added up to what exactly?

Sweet Fkall


Citing a dozen current and former White House officials and others briefed on the matter, the newspaper said


Oh I see, because there's a dozen fake sources now, its the truth
