Amazing exchange between President Trump and White Counsel Donald McGahn:
“What-about these notes?” Trump asked McGahn, per McGahn’s recollection. “Why do you take notes? Lawyers don’t take notes. I never had a lawyer who took notes.”
McGahn said he did so because he is a “real lawyer” and that it’s his legal responsibility to keep an accurate record of events.
“I’ve had a lot of great lawyers, like Roy Cohn,” Trump replied, per McGahn. “He did not take notes.”
Allegra Kirkland has more on the value to Mueller of McGahn as a witness against the President.
