At the Davos conference in Switzerland, President Donald Trump denied the New York Times account that he ordered the firing of Special Counsel in June but was prevented by doing so when White House Counsel Don McGahn threatened to resign. It is a highly disturbing allegation since such an act would have been catastrophic for the Trump Administration. Now however President Trump is denying the story — responding to reporters with “fake news, fake news.” What is curious is that the White House and particularly the White House Counsel did not deny the story.
