Trump praised McGahn on Wednesday afternoon as an "excellent guy", adding that he has "a lot of affection for Don".

However, there is no guarantee Brett Kavanaugh will be confirmed to the Supreme Court, throwing the timing of McGahn's departure into question.

But his personal relations with Trump have been formal and at times testy, as he has tried to protect the president from a slew of accusations and investigations into his personal behavior, his business, and his campaign's alleged collusion with Russians in the 2016 election.

The president later denounced the reports as "fake news".

Flynn was forced to resign after White House officials concluded he had misled them about the nature of his contacts with Kislyak during the White House transition.

McGahn, who counts deep ties within Washington's legal community, has long functioned as Trump's liaison to Justice officials and Congress. White House officials persuaded Sessions not to resign even after the president berated him for recusing himself from the Russian Federation probe, which led to the appointment of Mueller as special counsel.

Judiciary Chairman and Iowa Republican Chuck Grassley tweeted that he hoped it wasn't true McGahn is leaving, telling Trump: "U can't let that happen".
