Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, did not immediately return a call for comment Thursday night.
Now, Don McGahn-who was in the White House for the terminations or attempted terminations of all the other law enforcement officials perceived by Trump as threats to his presidency-isn't some paradigm of great moral courage. And now, Ruddy is taking this opportunity to remind everyone that he went on television several times in June and warned that Trump was considering firing Mueller - only to be roundly discredited by the president's communications team.
Trump sees Mueller as a unsafe foe. He says, I'm saying it again; firing the special counsel is a red line that the president can not cross and would be a gross abuse of power.
Moderate Republican Representative Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania, predicted that the revelations last week that McGahn "prevented an Archibald Cox moment" - a reference to the prosecutor whose firing President Richard Nixon ordered during the Watergate scandal - would increase pressure to "protect Mueller". But Mueller swiftly removed the agent, Peter Strzok, from his probe after learning about his texts.
His lawyers convinced him it was a bad idea and eventually Trump pledged to work with Mueller's office, which they said he has done.
Former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was indicted on multiple counts in 2017, including charges of lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
With the beginning of Mueller's investigation, McGahn became a figure in the firing of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and FBI Director James Comey. Flynn's short tenure in the White House and his ouster after it appeared he had misled the Vice President about his contacts with Russian Federation are reportedly of interest to Mueller's team in their questioning of other witnesses.
There are now several investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election in the House and Senate and by special counsel Robert Mueller. Likewise for Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., who said "the independent investigation must continue without interference from the White House or Congress". The president's 2016 campaign has turned over more than 1.4 million pages.
That notion was dismissed hours after Ruddy's PBS interview by senior White House aides, who said that Ruddy does not speak for the president, but it was not met with a denial.
