Trump hits NY Times in flurry of tweets for implying White House counsel is a ‘rat’

President Trump early Sunday attacked the “failing” New York Times for a report that he said implied White House counsel Don McGahn must be a “John Dean type RAT.”

The New York Times reported earlier that McGahn gave over 30 hours of testimony to investigators. The newspaper said that McGahn had grown concerned that Trump was preparing to set him up for a fall over the issue of possible obstruction of justice, prompting him to provide as much information as possible to Mueller's investigation. McGahn reportedly discussed Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey and the president's repeated prompting of Attorney General Jeff Sessions to claim oversight of the special counsel, despite his recusal from Mueller's Russia probes. John Dean, the White House counsel who feared he would be used as a scapegoat for Watergate and was eventually fired by President Nixon, said Saturday that he thought McGahn was doing the right thing.
