Trump's Team, FBI In Talks About Possible Mueller Interview With POTUS

Trump's Team, FBI In Talks About Possible Mueller Interview With POTUS”

Robert Mueller, the special counsel, has signalled that he is likely to try to question Mr Trump and the president's lawyers are understood to have discussed whether he can avoid a face-to-face encounter with Mr Mueller's team.

Trump's lawyers are discussing several potential formats for an interview, such as responding to written questions in place of an in-person interview, and they are debating whether Trump could completely skip an interview, according to NBC News. It was not immediately clear when or even if an interview will occur, what the terms will be, or whether Trump's lawyers will attempt to narrow the range of questions or topics that prosecutors would cover.

Reports surfaced this week that the president's lawyers have corresponded with FBI investigators about a potential interview between Trump and Mueller.

Forty-eight percent of voters in the Politico/Morning Consult poll said it is "very or somewhat likely" the president will be cleared on wrongdoing in the investigation, while 37 percent said "it's not too likely or not at all likely" the president will be exonerated.

Any interview of Trump would be a likely indication that the investigation was in its final stages - investigators typically look to interview main subjects in their inquiries near the end of a probe.

Former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty in the probe for lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Mueller's team recently concluded a series of interviews with many current and former White House aides, including former chief of staff Reince Priebus and the president's son-in-law, Jared Kushner. Mueller's team has already indicted four advisers from the Trump campaign, two of whom have pleaded guilty to lying about their contacts with Russian Federation.

Former campaign chairperson Paul Manafort was indicted on charges tied to foreign lobbying work.

Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, declined to comment Monday, as did Trump lawyers John Dowd and Jay Sekulow. Headlines questioning whether Trump could be removed under the 25th Amendment, which allows Congress to remove a president from power if he or she is "unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office", followed the book's publication, as did renewed speculation of impeachment. He said there had been "no collusion" and "no crime". Just 41 percent said it is somewhat likely or very likely that Mueller will indict a member of Trump's family on criminal charges in the coming year.
