Slim chances of Trump-Mueller interview amid leaks

US President Donald Trump's lead lawyer for dealing with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe is stepping down at the end of the month, the White House confirmed Wednesday.

Dowd, who tried to not only stop Mueller from questioning the President but also dissuade Trump from agreeing to the interview, resigned when he failed in his efforts.

"This isn't some game", John Dowd, Trump's then lead lawyer for the Russian Federation probe, had said angrily, according to The Washington Post, which first reported the move.

But other members of the legal team share Trump's view that they should take a more confrontational approach with the special counsel, including lawyer Jay Sekulow, who has urged the group to consider the pros and cons of fighting a subpoena, according to people familiar with his advice.

It's unclear if Trump will actually be subpoenaed.

"If the president wants this investigation to come to an end, it's only going to come to an end when the president testifies to the special prosecutor", he said.

Cobb's departure was not unexpected given that he had largely wrapped up his duties of providing documents to Mueller and shepherding aides through voluntary interviews with the special counsel's team.

The leaked questions, which Mueller discussed with Trump's lawyers, hint that the special counsel has uncovered untoward behavior on the part of close Trump confidants that is not publicly known.

So what is Trump to do if Mueller does subpoena his testimony?

"After Trump weighed in with Comey on the merits of prosecuting Flynn, Comey has testified that the Federal Bureau of Investigation ignored what the president said".

"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", Caputo told the committee in a prepared statement, according to CNN.

There is evidence too that these unsavory sources, again including banks such as Deutsche Bank, have laundered money through Trump properties, including properties in the U.S. There are no questions on the list that address these issues.

This all started many months ago when Trump, a master storyteller, opened up a new front against the investigation.

Judge Andrew Napolitano, a senior judicial analyst for Fox News, said Wednesday on Fox Business Network's "Varney & Co." that if Trump were to sit down with Mueller and told "one white lie", he could be indicted. Earlier this year, Robert Bennett, who represented Clinton in the Starr investigation, offered a similar perspective on Trump potentially choosing not to testify. In the meeting, Giuliani said, he talked with Trump about his assessment of where the case was heading and what Trump's personal lawyers could do compared with the role Flood will play.

Also Wednesday, Trump echoed the concerns of a small group of House conservatives who have been criticizing the Justice Department for not turning over certain investigation documents.

What happens if Robert Mueller issues a subpoena for President Trump to testify in the Russian Federation investigation?

Just to see Trump squirm is rewarding enough for many Americans, who have grown increasingly intolerant of his stringent, immoral policies.

"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", Caputo said in a prepared statement that he delivered at the end of the Senate interview, which was provided to CNN.

In a Tuesday tweet, Trump blasts what he calls a "rigged system".

While most of Mueller's questions in the obstruction thread relate directly to Trump's statements and conduct, it isn't the same case when it comes to the collusion thread. Why so much redacting?

Flood, a former law clerk to the late Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia, has defended former Vice President Dick Cheney in a lawsuit brought by former Central Intelligence Agency official Valerie Plame and represented President George W. Bush in executive-privilege disputes with Congress - suggesting he is well-versed in the powers of the presidency and may invoke those authorities as the Mueller investigation moves forward. "I think they've reached a point where, very frankly, they're not going to be able to conclude this investigation without the testimony of the president of the United States".

The latest target by Trump and his supporters, however, isn't Mueller, but the man to whom he reports: Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
