“There's no legal moves that are being made here,” Sekulow said during a CNN interview.

Sekulow said the president’s team expects Mueller will not stray from the findings of his report, adding that he believes it “certainly would be inappropriate” for Mueller to offer a “new revelation” to lawmakers.

Trump on Wednesday lamented Mueller’s testimony, saying that “it never ends,” and renewed his attacks on the special counsel by accusing him without evidence of illegally deleting text messages from two former FBI officials who criticized the president.

 

 

The announcement that Mueller will testify to two House committees next month has renewed speculation that Democrats may push to open impeachment proceedings against Trump, but Sekulow said his legal team is not preparing for that possibility.  

“We have no impeachment preparation team in place,” he said. “I don’t see impeachment as a threat at all.”
