President Trump’s attorneys sent their written counter-offer Wednesday to special counsel Robert Mueller on a potential interview of the president and urged him to wrap up his probe quickly.
“We have responded in writing to the latest proposal from the Office of Special Counsel regarding its request to interview the president,” said attorney Jay Sekulow. “It is not appropriate at this time to comment publicly about the content of that response.”
The New York Times, citing people familiar with the matter, said Mr. Trump’s lawyers rejected the special counsel’s latest terms for an interview in the Russia investigation, instead offering a narrow path for answering questions.
Trump lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani said in a statement, “Millions of pages of documents, along with testimony from dozens of witnesses, have been provided. We are restating what we have been saying for months. It is time for the Office of Special Counsel to conclude its inquiry without further delay.”
