BRIDGEWATER, N.J. (AP) – President Donald Trump says a New York Times story that says White House counsel Don McGahn has been cooperating extensively with the special counsel team investigating Russian election meddling is “a Fake piece.” In a series of Sunday tweets, Trump also wrote that McGahn isn’t a “RAT” like the Watergate-era White House attorney who turned on Richard Nixon. And he said, “So many lives have been ruined over nothing.”
