President Donald Trump has been stewing in rage over the testimonies of the former and current aides who appeared in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s redacted report, according to a Saturday CNN report.
“People close to” Trump told CNN that POTUS is furious at former White House counsel Don McGahn and other staffers who spoke to Mueller, believing that their accounts made him look a liar who gets handled or ignored by his own employees.
And, well, the report did reveal that an awful lot of them had to steer Trump away from multiple attempts to meddle with Mueller’s probe.
Now some officials are questioning whether they should’ve fully cooperated with Mueller in the first place, according to CNN. One official said former Trump lawyers John Dowd and Ty Cobb encouraged such cooperation in order to complicate Mueller’s push for an interview with Trump himself.
Though the strategy paid off in that respect, the final result was a report that painted a highly unflattering picture of Trump and the chaotic White House he runs.
