After waiting two years to interview former White House Counsel Don McGahn, the Democrats once again found no evidence of Russian collusion in the 2016 election. The transcript of the interview, totaling 241 pages, was made public Wednesday, and confirmed what Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation had already found: that there was no wrongdoing by President Trump. 

When asked if he had witnessed any wrongdoing, McGahn testified, “No. Whatever ‘collusion’ means, I don’t think I witnessed anything that could be remotely construed as collusion.” When asked again if he had seen any evidence of collusion with the Russians, McGahn firmly answered, “No.”

McGhan also testified he had not witnessed any violation of the law during his time at the White House. When asked if President Trump had done anything that would be “a violation of the obstruction statute,” McGhan once again reassured the committee he did not.

McGhan further testified that he had been instructed by President Trump to fully cooperate during the Mueller probe, and that the White House had cooperated fully as well, including not firing Mueller or limiting him whatsoever, despite his conflicts of interest.

A memo of key takeaways by the Republican members of the House Judiciary committee argued that the McGahn interview was a waste of time and money in the hopes of finding something that the special counsel’s extensive investigation did not. The memo pointed out that the investigation took two years, cost more than $30 million in taxpayer dollars, had a team of 40 FBI agents, interviewed 500 witnesses, issued 2,800 subpoenas, and executed more than 500 search warrants.

“Instead of rehashing the Special Counsel’s report and indulging in their obsession with President Trump, Committee Democrats should be using the Committee’s resources on issues that matter—for example, the Biden border crisis, the recent poor jobs reports, attacks on fundamental American civil rights, or Big Tech’s censorship of speech online,” the House Judiciary GOP wrote. “These issues— and not regurgitated allegations from a two-year-old investigation—are what matter to the American people.”
