According to one of Donald Trump’s attorneys, negotiations are ongoing for the president to sit down with special counsel Robert Mueller after it appeared they had fallen apart following a raid on Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen.
Speaking with the Daily Beast, Trump attorney Ty Cobb, it is possible that the interview could take place.
“The Cohen searches, while they have taken time away from discussions with regard to an interview, certainly have not brought those discussions to a halt,” Cobb said in a statement. “They continue.”
Following news of the raids on Cohen home and office, Trump raged on Twitter claiming, “Attorney Client privilege is now a thing of the past. I have many (too many!) lawyers and they are probably wondering when their offices, and even homes, are going to be raided with everything, including their phones and computers, taken. All lawyers are deflated and concerned!”
Despite Trump’s Twitter outburst, Cobb said negotiations have continued.
“The Cohen searches have not yet changed our strategy or level of cooperation with the special counsel,” Cobb continued.
Trump personal attorney Jay Sekulow conformed the statements saying, “We continue our ongoing cooperation with the Office of the Special Counsel.”
The attorney’s no doubt will be joined in the negotiation by former New York City Mayor and U.S. Attorney Rudy Giuliani who announced he is joining the Trump legal team and brings more criminal charges experience.
“I’m doing it because I hope we can negotiate an end to this for the good of the country and because I have high regard for the president and for Bob Mueller,” Giuliani said in a statement.
