Originally reported by the Wall Street Journal, Trump's lawyers will consider letting him testify if the questions "don’t test his recollections in ways that amount to a potential perjury trap." The other option on the table would be for Trump to respond to Mueller's questions via written responses, another seemingly absurd way to handle his participation.
Mueller's trial is investigating potential collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign to secure Trump's victory in the 2016 presidential election and Trump's potential obstruction of justice in relation to the trial, including his firing of former FBI director James Comey.
The trial has been the subject of some of Trump's infamous Twitter sprees in the past. He's even referred to the investigation as a "witch hunt."
One of the latest developments in the trial occurred last week when Mueller indicted 13 Russians for their alleged involvement in the 2016 election. Trump's former deputy campaign chairman Rick Gates also pled guilty this weekend to financial fraud and lying to investors regarding the investigation into the 2016 election. He is the fifth person to plead guilty as a part of Mueller's investigation. While there still has been no official confirmation that Trump was involved with the Russian government leading up to his election, all of these things are certainly red flags that there is something being hidden.
In other Trump news, he recently caused the President of Mexico Enrique Peña Nieto to cancel his trip to the White House due to a heated phone conversation related to the building of Trump's beloved "Wall."
With Trump still firmly standing by his claim that Russia did nothing to sway the 2016 presidential election, his participation in questioning could certainly bode interesting if his lawyers decide to let him go forward and participate even if it is only under guidelines to essentially guarantee he cannot say anything to put himself in hotter water than he's already in.
