The article detailed how McGahn, fearing that he could be made a scapegoat by the president, has described Trump's actions and anger toward the Russian Federation inquiry in at least three voluntary interviews with investigators that totaled about 30 hours.
The White House counsel also told Mueller's team about Trump's attempts to fire the Special Counsel.
The newspaper said it was unclear whether Trump knew the extent of McGahn's cooperation, noting that it is rare for a lawyer be so open with investigators.
At the tail-end of a Sunday morning tweetstorm, President Trump compared Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe to Sen. In addition we readily gave over one million pages of documents. Most transparent in history.
In his Twitter rant, Trump went 20 years back in time from Watergate, to the "red scare" of the 1950s.
A source close to the President told Reuters on Saturday that the extent of Mr. McGahn's cooperation was "a tactical or strategic mistake" instigated by Mr. Trump's first legal team and it should not have been allowed to happen because Mr. McGahn should have been covered by executive privilege.
In a separate report, Reuters said a person familiar with the matter did not believe McGahn provided incriminating information about the president and had not seen or heard anything that amounted to obstruction of justice by Trump.
As a result, they reportedly chose to cooperate in order to clear McGahn of any wrongdoing.

But officials say it threatens 11,300 buildings and some new evacuations were ordered over the weekend as the flames spread. The Mendocino Complex fire north of San Francisco was still growing this week as it broke the record set eight months ago.
In lieu of testifying to Mueller and his team, President Trump has authorized McGahn to fully cooperate to keep the president himself out of a "perjury trap", according to Dershowitz.
It was not clear Sunday whether President Trump or Chief of Staff John F. Kelly were personally involved in Beattie's departure.
The news follows a Saturday report by the Times that McGahn had been cooperating with Mueller extensively.
In a statement, The Times' communications department said the paper stood by the report and the reporters who wrote it, Michael S. Schmidt and Maggie Haberman. Cohen later became Trump's attorney when he was a prominent NY real estate developer in the '70s and '80s. "So bad for America!"
Dean tweeted a reply, saying he had "trouble using the title Mr President for someone installed by Putin".
"Study the late Joseph McCarthy, because we are now in a period with Mueller and his gang that make Joseph McCarthy look like a baby! Rigged Witch Hunt!", Trump tweeted. Joseph McCarthy, who led the '50s-era crusade against communism that resulted in many Americans being blacklisted for their suspected views.
After months of Senate hearing, the senate found the claims to be "a fraud and a hoax" and he ultimately censured by the chamber.
Brennan is also scheduled to appear on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday.
