McGahn's lawyer pushes back after Giuliani knocks his credibility

An attorney for former White House counsel Don McGahn is pushing back after President Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani went after McGahn's credibility following the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report.

McGahn's lawyer responded after Giuliani gave interviews to The New York Times and The Washington Post in which he went after McGahn's account of various instances of potential obstruction of justice detailed in the special counsel report.

"It's a mystery why Rudy Giuliani feels the need to re-litigate incidents the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General have concluded were not obstruction. But they are accurately described in the report," McGahn's attorney William Burck said in a statement to The Hill.

"Don, nonetheless, appreciates that the President gave him the opportunity to serve as White House Counsel and assist him with his signature accomplishments," he added.

McGahn was featured prominently in Mueller's conclusions after sitting down for several hours' worth of interviews with the special counsel.

The report said that McGahn refused repeated requests from Trump during the probe to deny that the president had asked McGahn to fire Mueller.
