In a statement on Twitter Thursday morning, President Trump downplayed the suggestion that the Robert Mueller probe had anything to do with White House lawyer Don McGahn leaving the White House. McGahn announced on Wednesday that he would be stepping down from his role this fall.

However, the president implied in his Twitter post that he may have asked McGahn to leave. Trump tweeted:

The Rigged Russia Witch Hunt did not come into play, even a little bit, with respect to my decision on Don McGahn!
