Blumenthal also said if Trump refuses to interview with Mueller, he should be subpoenaed.

GOP Sen. John KennedyJohn Neely KennedyMORE (La.) questioned whether that’s possible.

“I don't know whether he can be subpoenaed or what. I mean, you have the right in America not to testify, all things being equal; it's called the Fifth Amendment,” Kennedy said.

The senators spoke after The New York Times reported that some Trump advisers are suggesting he not interview with Mueller.
