Ex-Trump Lawyer Says He Felt 'Trapped' While in the White House

A former White House lawyer told Congress earlier this month he felt "trapped" by former President Donald Trump's repeated requests to remove special counsel Robert Mueller from leading an investigation into the 2016 Trump's campaign's relationship with Russia.

"After I got off the phone with the president, how did I feel? Oof. Frustrated, perturbed, trapped. Many emotions," ex-White House counsel Don McGahn told a Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee, in June 4 testimony that was released Wednesday.

McGahn, 52, told lawmakers he "felt trapped, because the president had the same conversation with me repeatedly, and I thought I conveyed my views and offered my advice, and we were still having the same conversation."

McGahn was the legal counsel for Trump's 2016 campaign before joining him as a lawyer at the White House. He resigned in October 2018.

Sounds like Trump has a short attention span.
