Don McGahn, the White House counsel who helped President Trump usher in a slate of conservative judges into the federal judiciary and assisted in the choosing of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch and nominee Brett Kavanaugh, will resign this fall. NPR reports that Trump announced McGahn’s departure on Twitter this morning, saying McGahn would depart after Kavanaugh’s confirmation. A likely candidate to replace McGahn is Emmet Flood, but White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders said that there has been no offer made yet.
