CNN: Trump Being ‘Informally’ Prepped by Lawyers for Mueller Interview

CNN is reporting tonight that the “informal” prep for President Trump‘s Robert Mueller interview has begun.

Per CNN:

One source familiar with the proceedings stressed the preparation efforts is “in its infancy.”

The preparations have been short and informal and included going over potential topics with the President that Mueller would likely raise in an interview, the people said.

The President has not officially agreed to a sit-down with Mueller, but recent reporting indicates that Mueller is seeking that interview.

The Washington Post said earlier this week Mueller had told Trump’s lawyers the President is being investigated but not a “criminal target” yet. That report says Mueller “reiterated the need to interview Trump — both to understand whether he had any corrupt intent to thwart the Russia investigation and to complete this portion of his probe.”
