Trump's Lawyers Send Mueller Counteroffer for Interview Terms

Donald Trump’s lawyers sent a written response on Wednesday to Special Counsel Robert Mueller with their latest counter-proposal for the terms of a possible interview with the president as the two sides move into the final stages of negotiations.Jay Sekulow, confirmed that the letter was sent but declined to provide details on the content of the letter. Speaking earlier Wednesday on his daily radio show, he said he expects Mueller’s team to take several days to respond.

"Our response is thoughtful and includes issues raised under the Constitution," Sekulow said, adding that the letter has “well thought-out legal positions that have implications not just for this president, but for the presidency.”

Trump’s lawyers told Mueller last month that the president would be willing to answer questions about whether his campaign coordinated with Russian efforts to interfere in the election but not about whether he obstructed justice. The lawyers were concerned Trump could be charged with lying to investigators if his account is contradicted by other witnesses.

Sekulow said he thinks the interview -- the subject of months of negotiations -- will be “the last major decision point” in Mueller’s investigation.
