We’re still going back and forth on the possibility of Trump sitting down with Robert Mueller. Mueller’s team apparently presented a request, laying out the terms and conditions, but Trump’s lawyers rejected it. However, they didn’t rule out the possibility of an interview COMPLETELY.

The New York Times reported that attorneys Jay Sekulow and Rudy Giuliani did not completely reject an interview, but instead countered Mueller’s offer with another one of their own. The lawyers did not comment on the specifics of their proposal, but sources told the newspaper that it rules out potential questions about obstruction of justice.
“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,” Giuliani told The New York Times.
I don’t think Trump has anything to hide, but it’s TRICKY talking to lawyers. Trump could, very possibly, cause himself a world of trouble. They’re DYING to get him on something. They have nothing, which is why they REALLY want this interview. Don’t you think?
