President Donald Trump said on Thursday he did not believe he would allow former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify to committees in Congress, saying McGahn had already spoken to the special counsel on the Russia probe.
“I would say it’s done,” Trump told Fox News. “I’ve had him testifying already for 30 hours,” Trump said, referring to McGahn’s testimony to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team. Trump said allowing McGahn to testify would open the gates for others to be called.
Trump, asked if he’d let McGahn testify again: “Well I’ve had him testifying already for 30hrs & it’s really – so I don’t think I can let him and then tell everybody else you can’t, especially him because he was a counsel so they’ve testified for many hrs, all of them, many ppl.”
