Trump Announces Exit of White House Counsel Don McGahn

  • As per the statement by the US President Donald Trump, Don McGahn would resign from White House from his job as a counsel. His position will be assumed by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Trump's tweet reads: White House Counsel Don McGahn will be leaving his position in the fall, shortly after the confirmation (hopefully) of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court. I have worked with Don for a long time and truly appreciate his service!

    McGahn, although played a major role in Trump's efforts of reshaping the federal courts, clashed with him multiple times over his intervention in the investigation of interference by Russia in the 2016 campaign.
