"If I got a subpoena for emails, if I deleted one email, like a love note to Melania, it's the electric chair for Trump," he said.

"We now have a great attorney general. Let’s see what happens," he said.

The Trump administration has defied several subpoenas of its own in recent weeks, including a demand for Trump's tax returns.
