Giuliani: Trump doesn't have to comply with subpoena from Mueller

“We don’t have to [comply with a subpoena]. He’s the president of the United States. We can assert same privilege as other presidents have," Giuliani said on ABC’s “This Week.” 

Giuliani, who was recently hired to Trump’s legal team dealing with the Russia probe, said he’d prefer the president receive the “Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonPelosi on power in DC: 'You have to seize it' Cuba readies for life without Castro Chelsea Clinton: Pics of Trump getting vaccinated would help him 'claim credit' MORE treatment.” He said that would involve answering questions that were received in advance, while not under oath.

Whether Trump will testify before the special counsel has been a point of intrigue as Mueller’s probe nears its one-year mark.

Trump said Friday he would “love to” speak with Mueller on the condition that he would be “treated fairly." 

Giuliani expressed uncertainty about an interview on Sunday, saying he believes the special counsel is “trying to trap him.”

“I’ve got a client who wants to testify,” Giuliani said.

“Jay [Sekulow] and I said to ourselves ‘My goodness, I hope we get a chance to tell him the risk he’s taking,' ” he added. “So he may testify.”

Trump has repeatedly railed against the Mueller investigation, calling it a “witch hunt” and a “hoax.”

The New York Times last week published a list of nearly 50 questions Mueller plans to ask Trump.
