Wednesday was Don McGahn’s last day as White House counsel, numerous White House sources confirmed. McGahn was a top election lawyer and served as general counsel for President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign. He was a major player in the president’s judiciary nominations, including the selections of Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, and was also a point of contact for special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
