President Donald Trump told his counsel's office last spring that he wanted to prosecute political adversaries Hillary Clinton and former FBI Director James Comey, an idea that prompted White House lawyers to prepare a memo warning of consequences ranging up to possible impeachment, The New York Times reported Tuesday.
McGahn, who has reportedly been cooperating extensively with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election meddling and collusion with the Trump campaign, departed his position as White House counsel in October.

McGahn told Trump that even requesting a DOJ investigation, something within his power, would likely draw howls of protest and accusations that he was abusing his power, according to the Times.

Trump has continued to speak about those potential prosecutions and pondered appointing a special counsel to investigate Clinton and Comey.

NSW Police said detectives were due to travel to Southport on Wednesday and seek the extradition of a 47-year-old man. A candlelight vigil for the baby girl is expected to be held at Surfers Paradise Beach from 5.00pm on Thursday.

Trump a year ago called his distance from law enforcement one of the "saddest" parts of being president.
As Times reporters Maggie Haberman and Michael Schmidt wrote, the move "was one of the most blatant examples yet of how Mr. Trump views the typically independent Justice Department as a tool to be wielded against his political enemies".
