👉🏼👉🏼Trump’s Lawyers Want Him to Refuse an Interview in Russia Inquiry via @NYTimes
2/ “His lawyers are concerned that the president, who has a history of making false statements and contradicting himself, could be charged with lying to investigators.” FOR GOOD REASON.
3/ “Refusing to sit for an interview opens the possibility that Mr. Mueller will subpoena the president to testify before a grand jury, setting up a court fight that would dramatically escalate the investigation and could be decided by the Supreme Court.”
4/ “Rejecting interview also carries political consequences. It would be certain to prompt accusations that he is hiding something, & court fight could prolong the inquiry, casting a shadow over GOP as midterm elections approach or beyond into president’s re-election campaign.”
5/ “The lawyers & aides believe Mueller might be unwilling to subpoena Trump & set off a showdown with the WH that Mueller could lose in court.

They are convinced that Mueller lacks the legal standing to question Trump about some of the matters he is investigating”
