How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Trump’s Attorneys Explore Ways to Limit President’s Testimony in Mueller Probe

President Trump

Donald Trump’s lawyers, who have been exploring legal routes to prevent the president from testifying in the special counsel investigation, are willing to consider a sit-down interview if the questions are “limited in scope.”

The president’s lawyers are considering whether to give Trump the green light to testify on conditions that the questions “don’t test his recollections in ways that amount to a potential perjury trap,” a source close to Trump’s legal team told the Wall Street Journal

For now, Trump’s lawyers are exploring all options for Trump’s testimony before Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether the president obstructed justice and if his campaign team colluded with Russia to undermine the presidential election.

“Everything is on the table,” the source said.

Those options include providing written responses and limited verbal testimony.

Trump initially boasted that he would testify, but his lawyers strongly discouraged an interview, fearing the president would lie and perjure himself.

Mueller’s team repeatedly wants to question Trump’s decisions to fire then-FBI Director James Comey and former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who has been indicted in the probe.
