Trump likely to be questioned on Russian Federation probe

Trump likely to be questioned on Russian Federation probe

Trump himself has previously expressed concern over any potential attempt by Mueller to look into his financial situation.

The report cites a source close to Trump saying that Mueller's team could interview the president possibly within the upcoming weeks.

When fired FBI director James Comey torched the White House last summer for spreading falsehoods about his leadership of the Bureau and the morale among its ranks - "Those were lies, plain and simple", he told Congress - Sarah Huckabee Sanders seemed to take umbrage that anyone would dare suggest the president is loose with the truth.

Powerful Earthquake in Caribbean Prompts Tsunami Warnings
President Juan Orlando Hernandez tweeted that the emergency system had been activated and people should remain calm. A tsunami advisory signals a threat to those in or near water, as strong currents and waves could be risky .

The explosive combination of November's mid-term elections, Special Counsel Robert Mueller's escalating Russian connection criminal investigation and the short-fuse, powder-keg psyche of POTUS himself at least make that a pretty safe forecast. "I would never let the prosecution interview my client", Dershowitz told NBC News. "I regard that "unless" as extremely implausible". "Maybe Hillary [Clinton] is, I don't know, but I'm not", he said.

Legally, the president is entitled to plead the Fifth Amendment even if he maintains he can not be indicted in office. Nevertheless, the hullabaloo and the implication of guilt, fairly or not, would likely be politically lethal.

Trump's attorneys say they aren't comfortable letting him face Mueller in face-to-face questioning without agreed-upon limits and note that President Ronald Reagan agreed only to respond, in writing, to written questions during the Iran-contra investigations in the 1980s. He's going to press to get Trump talking under oath about everything from his drafting on Air Force One of the inaccurate statement explaining the Trump Tower meeting with Donald Trump Jr. and Russian officials to Trump's financial dealmaking with Russia.

For Trump's lawyers, their only goal in life should be to keep Trump out of that room.

For the same reason, Trump's small army of personal lawyers keep telling him the Mueller investigation is nearly finished when all the evidence points in the opposite direction with the probe set to last for most of 2018 and perhaps even into 2019 - unless the president can succeed in either stopping the special counsel from finishing the job or effectively discrediting him in advance. If Trump does invoke the Fifth, his presidency would be at risk. "It's making our country look foolish, and this is a country that I don't want looking foolish". In the end, however, Mueller has the power to compel Trump to testify; Trump might have a theoretical legal right to refuse, but as a practical matter, he in all likelihood will have to testify - and therefore put himself in grave legal and political peril.
