US president Donald Trump has said he will not accept the blame if his party loses control of the US House of Representatives in November, arguing that his campaigning and endorsements have helped Republican candidates.
McGahn's departure adds to a long list of exits from the Trump administration.
Repeatedly stressing what he saw as the achievements of his first two years, Mr Trump said he would be seeking another term because there was "always more work to do".

Mr. Trump, in response to the Times' reporting, lashed out at the outlet, claiming he "allowed" McGahn and other White House staffers to testify before Mueller's team of investigators, adding that he has "nothing to hide" in the matter.
"Typically you would have the incumbent stay until the successor was ready to take his place". "But in this case McGahn was exhausted of the President and the President was exhausted of McGahn". He has Cipollone, a Washington lawyer who worked under President George H.W. Bush at the Justice Department, to replace McGahn.
Trump described Cipollone as "a very fine man, highly respected by a lot of people". Trump tweeted in August that McGahn would be stepping down after Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court. Since then, McGahn and Trump had a tense relationship and spoke infrequently, according to the person. McGahn was also viewed as a check on Trump's impulsive actions, and as a result, found himself attracting the president's ire. The Times noted that McGahn was behind efforts to deter the president from legally questionable decisions, including Trump's reported attempts to fire special counsel Robert Mueller and force the hand of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Trump is believed to have blamed McGahn, in addition to attorney general Jeff Sessions, for the ongoing investigation into the possible collusion between his 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation.
The White House counsel's office, which typically consists of a 50 attorneys, now has around 25, according to a Washington Post report published Saturday.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
