White House counsel Don McGahn, whose time serving President Donald Trump has been marked by tension related to the investigation of Russian election interference, is set to leave the job in the coming weeks.Trump has not settled on a replacement for McGahn, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters.George Hartmann, spokesman for the committee, said that Grassley viewed McGahn as the lynchpin to Trump's push to fill judicial vacancies, while Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell praised McGahn as "the most impressive White House Counsel during my time in Washington".The relationship between Trump and McGahn, a Washington insider who was chief counsel for Trump's presidential run, has become strained by the pressures of Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, sources familiar with the situation have said.McGahn did not discuss the issue with Rosenstein and threatened to quit when Trump continued to insist that he do so, the person said.As White House counsel, McGahn was charged with untangling a thicket of conflicts of interest between Trump's international business interests and his presidency.
