Trump interview with Federal Bureau of Investigation 'likely'

The president's legal team is mulling how to present the president to the special counsel for questioning when or if the times comes

"We could have been very closed, and it would have taken years", Trump said about the Mueller probe.

Trump's fury with Sessions is over his unavoidable decision to recuse himself from overseeing the Russian Connection investigation because of his own undeclared Russian contacts.

Remember folks, Mueller could just subpoena Trump to testify in front of the grand jury.

Anticipating that special counsel Robert Mueller will ask to interview President Donald Trump, the president's legal team is discussing a range of potential options for the format, including written responses to questions in lieu of a formal sit-down, according to three people familiar with the matter.

Although Trump has not addressed Wolff's comments on his finances, he has repeatedly slammed the work itself, claiming he did not have any conversations with Wolff for the book; while Wolff for his part has refuted Trump's claims and says he has records and notes to back up his story.


"The risk is that Trump would either incriminate himself, commit perjury, or lie - unless he truly has committed no offense and has nothing to fear from telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth", constitutional lawyer Laurence H. Tribe tells me. That is the worst of all possible outcomes for them.

Not even Alan Dershowitz, an ardent Trump defender who recently got his own show on Fox News, thought allowing the special counsel to grill Trump was the best play. It was not clear what such an affidavit might state regarding the president's firing of former FBI Director James Comey in May 2017 at a time when Comey was leading the Russian Federation probe.

Trump's lawyers reportedly hope to learn exactly what categories of questions Trump would face. Imagine how things could go when Mueller queries him with the benefit of evidence acquired from document requests (e.g., the original draft of the memo firing Comey) and testimony taken under oath from others. He got VISIBLY TIRED debating Hillary Clinton on television. Trump wouldn't last four hours being questioned BY ME.

They are also buoyed by polls that still suggest Trump's victory in getting his flagship tax reform bill through just before Christmas isn't playing well, with many GOP voters seeing it as only a short-term benefit for middle-income and poorer families and a much bigger boost for Corporate America and wealthy individuals like the president and his family. He'd break in front of trained professionals who already know more about his life than he does. "And it's not going to look foolish as long as I'm here". Everybody in the entire damn country knows that Trump will HARM himself if he has to actually talk to Robert Mueller for a few hours.
