The Wall Street Journal: Trump’s legal team open to Mueller interview about collusion, but not obstruction

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s legal team has submitted a counteroffer to special counsel Robert Mueller on a possible interview with the president that could allow for questions about collusion with Russia but curtail inquiries related to obstruction of justice.

As negotiations for such a sit-down are set to enter their eighth month, Rudy Giuliani, a lawyer for Trump, said Monday that an interview between the special counsel and the president is “still on the table.”

The president’s legal team is open to him answering questions about possible collusion with Moscow, Giuliani said, but is less willing to have Trump discuss questions about obstruction of justice.
