McGahn and Burck feared that Trump was setting up McGahn to take the blame for any possible wrongdoing, so they embraced the opening to cooperate fully with Mueller in an effort to demonstrate that McGahn had done nothing wrong.
According to Media Matters' Matthew Gertz, Fox & Friends' Brian Kilmeade said at 7:08 a.m., "When you talk about 30 hours and three separate interviews, what the heck is he talking at that length for that many times with Robert Mueller for?"
"Mr. McGahn chose to fully cooperate with Mr. Mueller".
Trump began his diatribe by condemning the New York Times' report that White House counsel Donald F. McGahn II has been cooperating with Mueller's team and generously sharing information about key moments to the inquiry that investigators would not have known otherwise.

President Trump lashed out on Twitter and called Dean a "rat" and said that McGahn was nothing like him. The strategy is working.
Giuliani's statement was focused on conflicting accounts about a meeting early previous year at the White House between Trump and James Comey, then director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and leading the agency's Russian Federation investigation before Trump fired him in May 2017.
"The Failing New York Times wrote a story that made it seem like the White House Councel had TURNED on the President, when in fact it is just the opposite - & the two Fake reporters knew this", Trump wrote.

"Through John Dowd we have a pretty good sense of it", Giuliani said on NBC's Meet the Press, when asked how much he knew about the content of McGahn's interviews with investigators. Rosenzweig responded, "I think it's a no-brainer, and it's a no-brainer for a more fundamental reason-which is that in the end, he doesn't have that much of choice".
Giuliani also tried to make the case that having Trump sit down for an interview with Mueller's team wouldn't accomplish much because of the he-said-she-said nature of witnesses' recollections.
President Donald Trump used a White House event Monday to pay tribute to federal immigration officials, returning to the fight over the USA southern border. He added that he allowed McGahn "and all others to testify" and that he has "nothing to hide".
Trump said he brought immigration and Border Patrol agents to the White House to remind them that they're supported by the vast majority of Americans.
