President Trump delivered to Robert Mueller handwritten answers about pre-election dimensions of the Russia probe but did not answer questions about his behavior as president, including allegations of obstruction of justice — and will resist doing so in the future — his lawyer Rudy Giuliani tells Axios.
It is possible that Mueller will subpoena Trump regarding his activities as president. But Rudy said he has reason to suspect he won’t: “I think that he would not win a legal battle if he did that, and I think it would consume months.” If Mueller does, the president’s view is clear: He will refuse to cooperate.
Giuliani expressed breezy confidence about Trump’s legal position: “I don’t think they have any evidence of collusion of any kind. I think their obstruction case, as a legal matter, doesn’t exist.”
Giuliani would only confirm two topics in Trump’s written responses: Junior’s Trump Tower meeting with Russians and the hacking of Hillary’s emails. More at the link.
