Report: Don McGahn Stepping Down as White House Lawyer

White House counsel Don McGahn is planning to resign in the fall, Axios is reporting.

Citing unnamed sources, Axios said McGahn will leave after Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court or after the midterm elections.

The website noted some allies of President Donald Trump fear McGahn gave up too much information to special counsel Robert Mueller’s team of investigators.

But McGahn’s attorney Bill Burck asserted he “did not incriminate” President Donald Trump during interviews with Mueller’s team.

Meanwhile, Axios reported that McGahn has told a confidant he would like to be replaced by Emmet Flood, who had worked for President Bill Clinton and joined the Trump White House in May.

One source explained the possible choice of Flood like this: “The reason he can represent both Bill Clinton and Donald Trump is because he thinks these investigators come and basically put a target on their backs, trying to overturn every aspect of their lives searching for a crime.”
