Trump's legal team prepares for showdown with Mueller
President Donald Trump's lawyers are preparing for a legal showdown with special counsel Robert Mueller, according to sources familiar with their thinking.
Trump's legal team is bracing for the dramatic possibility that Mueller would subpoena the President, setting up a collision that could force a lengthy court fight and test the legal limits of the President's power all the way up to the Supreme Court.
Mueller has raised the possibility of a presidential subpoena in at least one meeting, according to two sources. But some of the President's legal advisers are gambling that Mueller would not go that far. The Washington Post first reported on the subpoena threat. Ref. CNN
As Robert Mueller writes his report, a potential battle brews over obstruction of justice
As special counsel Robert Mueller wraps up his Russia probe, investigators have focused on conflicting public statements by President Donald Trump and his team that could be seen as an effort to influence witnesses and obstruct justice, according to people familiar with the investigation.
The line of questioning adds to indications that Mueller views false or misleading statements to the press or to the public as obstruction of justice.
That could set up a potential flashpoint with the White House and the Trump legal team should that become part of any final report from the Mueller investigation. Ref. CNN.
I really hope that Mueller's report goes to the next stage of prosecution and not just something to read over by curious minds for political gain.
