He has frequently had both Sekulow and Giuliani as guests on his Fox News program.

The appearance comes after Giuliani said on Wednesday that Trump's legal team would send later that day a counteroffer to Mueller for a potential interview with the president.

Mueller has been pushing for a sit-down with Trump as part of his investigation. Trump has indicated that he would be willing to be deposed by the special counsel, but that he would defer to his lawyers.

His attorneys, particularly Giuliani, have warned Trump against an interview. Giuliani has previously said that such a meeting would be a "perjury trap."

Sekulow, who has represented Trump since last year, also hosts a radio show for the American Center for Law and Justice, where he works as chief counsel. Giuliani was a guest on the program on Wednesday.

Trump and Hannity are known to be friendly, and the president has often praised the Fox News personality by name.

Trump touted Fox News during a rally in Ohio last week, bragging about the network's ratings compared to cable competitors.
