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.

From 1999 to 2008, McGahn was chief counsel for the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC).[4]

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.[5][6] In 2013, McGahn advocated for rules that would require FEC approval for its staffers to share information with federal prosecutors.[7] 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.[8]

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.[5]

McGahn served as Donald Trump's campaign counsel during his 2016 campaign for president.[4] McGahn managed all litigation involving Donald Trump's 2016 Presidential campaign, and he successfully defeated numerous litigations and legal efforts to derail the campaign. Early in 2016, he stopped efforts to keep Trump off of the Republican primary ballot in New Hampshire by going to court and winning to ensure ballot access in a key primary state.[9] McGahn also assembled and oversaw the legal team that helped defeat the NeverTrump movement at the 2016 Republican National Convention, both in the RNC Rules Committee and on the convention floor.[10] Several weeks before the election, lawsuits were filed in four battleground states alleging voter intimidation and seeking to enjoin the trump campaign from having observers at polling locations.[11] McGahn successfully managed and won these litigations and vindicated Trump's efforts to ensure fair elections.[12]

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

On November 25, 2016, following Trump's election, McGahn was named White House Counsel for the President-elect's new administration.[13][14]

McGahn personally recommended Trump nominate Neil Gorsuch to replace Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court. Gorsuch's first official interview with Trump staff was on January 5, 2017 when McGahn met with him in Trump Tower. Trump and McGahn met with him on January 14, 2017. McGahn called Gorsuch on January 27, 2017 to tell him that he had been selected as the nominee.[15] Gorsuch was sworn in on April 7, 2017.

McGahn also recommended the nomination of Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta. Acosta was sworn in on April 28, 2017.[16]

McGahn has assembled a team of lawyers to oversee filling all judicial vacancies.

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][5] McGahn is known to have an almost perfect credit score of 849.
