The Hill: Trump Could Face Political, Legal Peril If Mueller Interviews Him

President Donald Trump said good-bye to the Paris Climate Accord in 2016 but is sending signals the U.S. may stay in under more agreeable terms

President Donald Trump said good-bye to the Paris Climate Accord in 2016 but is sending signals the U.S. may stay in under more agreeable terms

Here are the newsy statements Trump made during a January 10 joint press conference with Norway's prime minister, along with key context.

"It seems unlikely that you would even have an interview", he added.

A new poll reveals 48 percent of American voters believe it's "very or somewhat likely" President Donald Trump will be cleared in the investigation into alleged collusion with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Schiff's complaints come as the House GOP begins to pivot its attention away from questions of possible Russian collusion and toward those about the FBI's conduct during its probes of Trump's alleged Russia ties and Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. "That's, perhaps, ridiculous, a lot of people looked at that as a very serious breach". Among the witnesses he wants to interview: Ivanka Trump, plus he says the panel should consider issuing a subpoena to Trump Jr. for information he withheld during his classified hearing previous year. More alarmingly, Republicans in Congress are joining Trump and conservative media outlets in brutal attacks on the integrity of the FBI and the USA intelligence community, which are conducting the investigation.

"The single greatest Witch Hunt in American history continues", Trump tweeted. Others say Trump should find a way to cooperate that limits his potential legal exposure.

"Working with countries, whether it's Russian Federation or China or India, or any of the countries that surround this world and encompass this world, is a very good thing. Republicans should finally take control!" the commander-in-chief wrote.

With the exception of the Senate Intelligence Committee, which has maintained bipartisan comity, it's becoming increasingly likely that Congress won't be able to agree on whether Trump's campaign was in any way connected to the Russian meddling or on how to prevent a repeat of Russia's 2016 interference in future elections. For example, if Trump was subpoenaed by Mueller's team to testify before a grand jury, he would be put under oath.

Asked at that June news conference whether he'd speak to Mueller, Trump told reporters he "would be glad to tell him exactly what I just told you".

The FBI investigations by several committees ramped up after the discovery of several anti-Trump texts between two Justice department employees who had both worked for Mueller.

Trump called the investigation a "phony cloud" over his administration.

Former president Bill Clinton's impeachment on counts of perjury and obstructing justice was fueled by misleading testimony he gave to prosecutors.

If Trump is deposed, the former FBI Director will go in with a long list of questions, all of which the president will have to prepare for-to the extent he can-with his lawyers. "It's got to include the wall". "We need it for security".
