Lawyers for President Trump have reportedly rejected special counsel Robert Mueller’s latest terms for an interview with Trump, instead offering to let the president testify only if there are no questions about obstruction of justice, reports The New York Times.
“We’re restating what we have been saying for months: It is time for the Office of the Special Counsel to conclude its inquiry without further delay,” Rudy Giuliani told The New York Times.
The Washington Post reported last week that Mueller was considering reducing the number of questions he planned to ask about obstruction of justice during a sit-down interview with the president. He would instead allow Trump to submit some of his responses on that topic in writing.
The New York Times has previously reported that Mueller’s team is looking at Trump’s tweets about former FBI Director James Comey and Attorney General Jeff Sessions as part of a broader investigation into whether the president obstructed justice.
