Donald F. "Don" McGahn II (born June 16, 1968) is the current White House Counsel and Assistant to the President for U.S. President Donald Trump, serving since January 20, 2017. He is an American campaign finance lawyer, political operative, and a former Commissioner of the United States Federal Election Commission (FEC).

McGahn was chief counsel for the National Republican Congressional Committee from 1999 to 2008. He was nominated to the Federal Election Commission in 2008 by George W. Bush and served in that role until 2013. McGahn was named White House Counsel by then President-elect Trump in November 2016.

Early life and education[edit]

McGahn grew up in Atlantic City, New Jersey, the son of Noreen (Rogan) and Donald McGahn.[1] He attended the United States Naval Academy before receiving a BA in history and computer applications from the University of Notre Dame in 1991. He obtained his JD from Widener University School of Law in 1994 and, as of 2009, had completed coursework toward an LLM at Georgetown University Law Center.[2]

Career[edit]

Following his graduation from law school, McGahn worked in campaign finance law at the Washington, D.C.-based law firm Patton Boggs.[3]

Following the 2004 elections, he established McGahn & Associates PLLC.

National Republican Congressional Committee[edit]

From 1999 to 2008, McGahn was chief counsel for the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC).[4] During the early 2000s, he defended House Majority Leader Tom DeLay for his actions during the controversial 2003 Texas redistricting plan. McGahn also represented DeLay in 2005 during a Federal Election Commission audit of the records of Americans for a Republican Majority, DeLay's political action committee.[5]

Federal Election Commission[edit]

George W. Bush nominated McGahn as a Republican-selected member of the Federal Election Commission in 2008. He was confirmed on June 24, 2008 by the United States Senate and was sworn in shortly thereafter. He is credited as having played a crucial role in loosening regulations on campaign spending.[6][7] In 2013, McGahn advocated for rules that would require FEC approval for its staffers to share information with federal prosecutors.[8] Critics of the proposed rule said it would interfere with the FEC and Justice Department prosecutions of election violations. McGahn resigned from the FEC in September 2013.[9]

After leaving the FEC, McGahn returned to the law firm Patton Boggs.[4] In 2014 he moved to the law firm of Jones Day in Washington, D.C.[6]

Trump Campaign and Transition[edit]

McGahn served as Donald Trump's campaign counsel during his 2016 campaign for president.[4] McGahn successfully oversaw the defense of multilple lawsuits filed to either remove Trump from the ballot or enjoin his campaign operation.

Shortly after Trump won election, he named McGahn General Counsel of the Presidential Transition Team.

White House Counsel[edit]

On November 25, 2016, following Trump's election, McGahn was named White House Counsel for the President-elect's new administration.[10][11]

McGahn personally recommended Trump nominate Neil Gorsuch to replace Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court. Gorsuch was sworn in on April 7, 2017.

In May 2017 Sally Yates alleged discussions she had with McGahn, beginning on Jan. 26, regarding National Security Adviser Michael T. Flynn’s conversations in December with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.[12] McGahn has not commented on Yates allegations.

Personal life[edit]

McGahn is married to Shannon McGahn, staff director of the House Banking Committee. They have two sons.[4] McGahn owns 30 guitars and plays a Gibson Les Paul in Scott's New Band, an '80s cover band that performs in Ocean City, Maryland.[3][6]
