Donald Trump continues trying to obstruct justice, in the name of trying to convince everyone he didn’t already obstruct justice. He and his team have now twice asked Don McGahn to publicly state that he doesn’t believe that Trump obstructed justice. The first time Trump asked, McGahn “reluctantly” declined according to The New York Times. The second request occurred after Trump’s lawyers were given the redacted report, but before it was released to Congress, once they realized just how much it implicated Trump. McGahn declined the request again.
McGahn knew full well that Trump did, indeed, attempt to obstruct the investigation, and he wasn’t about to lie for him. The timing of McGahn’s definitive decision to pass on Trump’s request is interesting. As the NY Times reports, Trump told aides that he believed McGahn leaked the incident to the media “to make himself look good.” Look good at what? This accusation makes no sense whatsoever, but that is typical of Trump.
