Everyone has told Trump it's a bad idea to testify to special counsel Robert Mueller, but he still insists he wants to do it.
Right after his top attorney, John Dowd, resigned Thursday because his client refuses to follow his legal advice, Trump insisted that he still wants to sit down for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller.
At a photo op to sign a memorandum on trade with China, CNN’s Jeff Zeleny asked whether Trump still wants to testify.
“Yes, I would like to, I would like to,” Trump replied as he exited the room.
Trump himself has flip-flopped wildly on whether he would testify under oath to Mueller. Last July, he said he would “100 percent” be willing to talk to the special counsel.
But he sang a different tune at a press conference in January, where he told reporters that “it seems unlikely that you’d even have an interview,” let alone an interview under oath.
With Dowd gone and conspiracy-minded Joe DiGenova recently added to the legal team, it’s anyone’s guess what kind of advice he will be receiving now.
