President Trump has reportedly agreed to an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller’s team—but only if questions about obstruction of justice are left out. Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said late Monday that a proposal has already been submitted to Mueller pitching an interview that focuses solely on questions about collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential election, Bloomberg News reports. Mueller has yet to respond to the offer. Trump’s legal team has repeatedly tried to set conditions for the interview in recent weeks, from demanding the president be allowed to answer questions in writing, to asking for Mueller’s investigators to first show evidence they have proof the president committed a crime. Trump had initially expressed willingness to testify in the Russia investigation, but his lawyers have reportedly sounded the alarm over a possible “perjury trap” that could implicate him in obstruction of justice.
