Luật sư khuyên Trump không nên trả lời thẩm vấn với Mueller, tin nói


KH: Tường thuật của NYT nói có nguồn tin riêng nói các luật sư khuyên TT Trump đừng đồng ý trả lời thẩm vấn của Điều tra viên đặc biệt Robert Mueller. Lý do là Trump có thể bị buộc tội nói dối với các điều tra viên liên bang, vì các luật sư lo ngại là liệu Trump có thể có những tuyên bố sai sót hoặc mâu thuẫn hay không. Ông Trump thường không rào đón và hớ hênh. Theo luật ông Mueller có quyền triệu tập ông TT Trump, tuy nhiên điều này nếu xảy ra sẽ đưa đến cuộc chiến pháp lý với Nhà Trắng. Dưới đây là bản tin của VOA News trên đề tài này.

Report: Trump's Lawyers Advise Against Special Counsel Meeting


Lawyers for U.S. President Donald Trump are advising him not to agree to appear for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller, the New York Times reported Monday.


Mueller's team has already talked to multiple White House officials and others involved with Trump's campaign for president, as part of an investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 U.S. election and whether Trump obstructed justice by firing FBI Director James Comey.


The Times said that according to four people briefed on the issue, Trump's lawyers have concerns about whether the president would make false or contradictory statements and thus open himself up to possible charges of lying to federal investigators. The report says further the lawyers believe Mueller should not be legally allowed to question the president about some aspects of the investigation.


Trump has indicated he is willing to participate in an interview with the special counsel, while also questioning why such a step would be necessary as he rejected that there was any collusion between his campaign and Russia and said he did not obstruct justice by firing Comey.


Mueller could subpoena Trump if he does not agree to a request to speak with the investigators. The Times said the president's lawyers believe Mueller might not be willing to take that step and enter a legal battle with the White House.
