Trump lawyer: any Mueller-Trump interview to be limited

If Trump answers Mueller's questions it will 'end his presidency&apos

Mr Trump could bring his own lawyers to a voluntary interview, but not to the grand jury, one possible point of leverage for Mr Mueller in the negotiations.

Caputo reportedly ripped into the Senate Intelligence Committee over their investigation into Russian election interference, saying the high legal fees stemming from the probe have forced him to consider moving from his home in upstate NY to a city where he could earn a high income.

However, former federal prosecutors and Justice Department officials have said that Mueller may be simply biding this time, according to Politico.

Twenty-three years later, in allowing Paula Jones" sexual harassment suit to go forward against President Bill Clinton, Justice John Paul Stevens wrote: "We have made clear that in a criminal case the powerful interest in the "fair administration of criminal justice" requires that the evidence be given under appropriate circumstances lest the "very integrity of the judicial system' be eroded". "The Justice Department is supposed to be the body that steps in and makes sure that kind of stuff doesn't happen".

Mr Mueller, who is leading the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign, believes he has legal standing to subpoena a sitting president, even though such a move has never been fully tested, the officials said. "The special counsel is spearfishing".

In the meantime, Mueller's investigation continues. He was also interviewed previous year by the House Intelligence Committee.

So what is Trump to do if Mueller does subpoena his testimony?

Flood, a former law clerk to the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, has defended former Vice President Dick Cheney in a lawsuit brought by former Central Intelligence Agency official Valerie Plame and represented George W. Bush in executive-privilege disputes with Congress - suggesting he is well-versed in the powers of the presidency and may invoke those authorities as the Mueller investigation moves forward. He doesn't work for Congress. "Who played a role?" reads one question.

The questions reflected what the defence lawyers anticipated Trump would be asked, rather than verbatim queries that Mueller's team provided, the person said.

Trump's legal team is well-aware Mueller could issue a subpoena, a possibility they have calculated in their strategy on negotiating an interview, according to people familiar with the team's thinking. Instead, he sees Mueller hunting for a motivation to obstruct justice in Trump's actions to fire Comey.

The reason, he said, "is not to interfere with the office of the president", Giuliani said.

However, the strongest defense for Trump against any allegations of obstruction is that no investigations have been obstructed.

The President's lawyers said they wanted to finish the interview quickly, claiming it would help end the special counsel's investigation. On Tuesday, the special counsel's office and Flynn, a key cooperator, agreed to put off setting his sentencing date for another 60 days, saying the delay was necessary "due to the status" of the investigation. "So there was no obstruction here". Trump has said he wants to talk to Mueller.
