Clinton impeachment lawyer to represent Trump

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner arrive home on foot after an evening out

Special counsel Robert Mueller reportedly discussed issuing a subpoena for President Donald Trump.

John Dowd, who served as Trump's lead attorney, had a security clearance, two sources familiar with the situation told Bloomberg in a report published Wednesday, but he abruptly resigned in March after not seeing eye-to-eye with the president on a legal strategy.

"This isn't some game".

President Donald Trump said Wednesday he was considering using his executive power to "get involved" in a document dispute between the Department of Justice and congressional Republicans that's tied to federal investigations into his campaign's ties to Russian Federation. The president's legal team has not committed to an interview with Mueller, who has dozens of questions on a broad array of topics he'd like to ask Trump.

This question is important because, if Mr. Trump truly was upset about the Clinton investigation, he would have shown an early distaste for Mr. Comey.

"There was no Collusion (it is a Hoax) and there is no Obstruction of Justice (that is a setup & trap)", Mr Trump wrote on Twitter yesterday morning, again calling the investigation a "Witch Hunt!"

"Your investigation and others into the allegations of Trump campaign collusion with Russian Federation are costing my family a great deal of money - more than $125,000 - and making a visceral impact on my children", he told the committee in the remarks.

The president added: "It would seem very hard to obstruct justice for a crime that never happened!"

But if he were subpoenaed and did not want to testify, Trump could always invoke his constitutional right not to testify against himself and decline to answer questions. But Cobb's role is to represent the office of the presidency, not Trump personally, and he hasn't been directly involved in discussions with Mueller about an interview.




"Due to the status of the special counsel's investigation, the parties do not believe that this matter is ready to be scheduled for a sentencing hearing at this time", Mueller's prosecutors and Flynn's lawyers said in court on Tuesday.

Despite Trump's dismissal of the idea, the list does appear to indicate that Mueller is looking into possible collusion or coordination with Russian Federation.

The questions were focussed on determining whether there was obstruction of justice by the president or the administration, as it may appear from the queries related to former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey and attorney general Jeff Sessions.

If Trump refuses to give a voluntary interview, prosecutors could issue a subpoena compelling testimony.

This question addresses documents written by a retired British spy, Christopher Steele, who said that Russian Federation had gathered compromising information on Mr. Trump. According to Comey, Trump encouraged Comey to drop an investigation into Flynn. One question asks what Trump knew about members of his campaign staff, including former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, reaching out to Moscow.

The president insists there was no collusion between his election campaign and the Russians.

Mueller has brought several charges against Manafort already, including money laundering and bank fraud.

One question asks whether there were any efforts to reach out to Flynn "about seeking immunity or possible pardon" ahead of his guilty plea previous year.
