‘Anyone Who Believes Trump Is Just Stupid’: McGahn About To Drop The Hammer On Trump
Donald Trump told ABC News earlier this week that he never told his former White House Counsel Don McGahn to fire special counsel Robert Mueller. And not only that, but Trump also claimed that McGahn lied under oath to make himself look good.
However, Trump’s claims were debunked on Friday by a source “close to” McGahn who told Axios reporter Jonathan Swan that the president is simply making up lies to avoid being potentially implicated in obstructing justice.
“Anyone who believes Trump wasn’t telling Don to get rid of Mueller using these conflicts is just stupid or believes in the tooth fairy,” the source told Swan.

McGahn has yet to comply with Congress and testify but Trump’s latest attack against him could very well change his mind.
