US President Donald Trump on Monday (Tuesday NZ Time) railed against special counsel Robert Mueller in a second day of angry tweets that drew comparisons to Watergate, insisted his general counsel isn't a "RAT" like President Richard Nixon's and accused Mueller's team of "looking for trouble".

According to the article, McGahn spoke to the Mueller team about the President's "comments and actions during the firing" of former FBI Director James ComeyJames Brien ComeyComey: "Truth exists and truth matters" Lieu: Giuliani saying "truth isn't truth" is another step toward "authoritarianism" Santorum: Mueller could avoid charges of McCarthyism by investigating DOJ, FBI MORE; the President's "obsession with putting a loyalist in charge" of the Russian Federation investigation; and the President's "attempts to fire" Mueller.

Donald Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani says the "truth isn't truth" while showing his concerns over the USA president's interview with special counsel Robert Mueller as part of the investigation into Russian interference during the 2016 election.

"No", Giuliani replied, "it isn't truth".

Trump has countered that he allowed McGahn and others on the White House staff to "fully cooperate" in a bid to show there was "no collusion" and "no obstruction".

"John Dowd yesterday said - I'll use his words rather than mine - that McGahn was a strong witness for the president", Giuliani told NBC's "Meet the Press". "I have nothing to hide." he wrote. "He just told the truth as he was required to".

On Sunday, the New York Times also reported that charges are likely by the end of this month against Michael Cohen, Trump's former lawyer and fixer who is being investigated regarding alleged fraud and his role in payments to women who claim to have had affairs with Trump.

"The White House counsel's office is being very conservative with this stuff", Mr. Cobb told Mr. Dowd. Or taken the more cautious circumscribed, even antagonistic approach favored by Giuliani, who is not yet a former Trump attorney.
