Josh Campbell, who previously worked as an aide to former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, told CNN that Mr Comey was dismayed at the reports about Trump wanting to have him prosecuted.
President Donald Trump tried to order the Department of Justice to prosecute his political opponents, Hillary Clinton and James Comey earlier this year.
He said: "This is what had him anxious then".
Trump repeatedly called to "lock up" Clinton on the campaign trail for her use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state. "Mr. McGahn would point out, though, that the president never, to his knowledge, ordered that anyone prosecute Hillary Clinton or James Comey".
Trump's former lawyer, John Dowd, urged Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in a memo previous year to investigate Comey and his handling of the Clinton email investigation.
While it is theoretically possible for a president to ask the Dept. of Justice to open an investigation, it is illegal for the president to order the prosecution of any American. McGahn's lawyer, William Burck, also did not respond to a request for comment.
It took on additional significance in recent weeks when Mr. McGahn left the White House and Mr. Trump appointed a relatively inexperienced political loyalist, Matthew G. Whitaker, as the acting attorney general.
The president named Pat Cipollone as his replacement, but the noted commercial lawyer and conservative Catholic activist has not been seen at the White House.
Trump has continued to privately discuss the matter of prosecuting his longtime adversaries, including talk of a new special counsel to investigate both Clinton and Comey, the newspaper said, citing two people who had spoken to Trump about the matter.
