Donald Trump's legal team is reportedly brainstorming ways for the president to avoid testifying before special counsel Robert Mueller.


The Wall Street Journal reported that members of Trump's legal team have been developing plans to shield the president from having to testify or be interviewed by investigators. Lying under oath or to federal agents carries a prison term.

Any question for the president is answered in these materials and testimony.”

“It would be a travesty to waste his (Mr. Trump’s) time and to set a precedent which would cripple a future president," the source added.
