”Trump’s legal team has a baffling new argument for why he shouldn’t speak with Mueller”
After months of finding ways to skirt around the issue, President Donald Trump’s legal team has come up with yet another strategy for avoiding an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller in the Russia investigation.
While maintaining that all options for a Trump-Mueller interview remain on the table, one of Trump’s lawyers has claimed that a face-to-face interview would set a bad precedent for future investigations.
…Robert Ray, one of the independent counsels in the Clinton investigation in the 1990s, said Trump’s waffling on the issue is unnecessary.
“The sooner they make the president available to submit to an interview, the faster that Bob Mueller can get to the finish line and be over and done,” Ray told The Journal.
