Robert F. Bauer, a White House counsel under U.S. President Barack Obama, said McGahn's lawyer may have taken the most prudent course for his client by not addressing "each and every detail about the questions that were specifically asked and the specific answers given".
Dean, a frequent critic of the president, tweeted Saturday night in response to the Times story that, "Trump, a total incompetent, is bungling and botching his handling of Russiagate. Anybody needing that much time when they know there is no Russian Collusion is just someone. looking for trouble", Mr. Trump tweeted Monday. Trump and the outside lawyers initially representing him in the inquiry hoped that transparency would help to quickly put an end to an inquiry that began more than two years ago.
"Study the late Joseph McCarthy, because we are now in a period with Mueller and his gang that make Joseph McCarthy look like a baby!"
Trump also Sunday compared the investigation to McCarthyism. The White House says that Trump simply has nothing to hide, with Sarah Huckabee Sanders telling Fox News that "The president and Don have a great relationship".
Donald Trump on Sunday angrily denounced the federal probe of Russia's 2016 election meddling as "McCarthyism at its WORST!", as he slammed a report that the White House counsel had given investigators detailed testimony about the president's actions at key moments now under scrutiny. "They made up a phony crime called Collusion, and when there was no Collusion they say there was Obstruction (of a phony crime that never existed). Not the truth", Giuliani told Chuck Todd on NBC's Meet the Press.
Rudy Giuliani, part of Mr. Trump's legal team, said on Saturday that Mr. McGahn's cooperation with Mr. Mueller was part of a legal strategy.

Mueller has secured guilty pleas from several Trump campaign figures, including former national security adviser Michael Flynn and foreign affairs adviser George Papadopoulos, both of whom have pleaded guilty to lying to investigators about their contacts with Russian Federation. McGahn, he said, isn't a "John Dean type 'RAT, ' " the president tweeted, in a reference to the White House attorney who turned on President Richard Nixon in the Watergate scandal.
As Trump's lawyers have shifted to a more antagonistic approach toward Mueller, it has seemed increasingly unlikely that Trump will sit for a voluntary interview.
On Sunday, he compared Mueller with 1950s-era United States senator Joseph McCarthy, whose anti-Communist crusade eventually led to his censure by the Senate. Nor do they know in any detail what he said during those 30 long hours.
The Times report cited a dozen unnamed current and former White House officials and "others briefed on the matter".
According to Trump, the New York Times has been promoting "Fake News" since the day he announced that he was running for president.
