Opinion: The White House official who stood up to Trump

The former White House counsel -- and, according to CNBC, the most cited witness in Robert Mueller's report -- Don McGahn may have heeded the President's demand that he not testify before the House Judiciary Committee, but McGahn's background and willingness to defy the President's questionable requests in the past, hints at the notion that he possesses some moral strength. However, until he speaks, we only know that he is less vulnerable than others when it comes to the President's methods. ...
