President Trump's lawyers believe that he is above the law when it comes to obstruction of justice, per a bombshell new report in the New York Times. According to one source, Trump reviewed the letter and approved it.
First, the letter oddly claims that, when Trump allegedly asked former FBI director James Comey to end the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, the president could not been trying to obstruct justice, since he did not know Flynn was under investigation in the first place. "So bad for our Country", he tweeted.
In addition to the legal battles, Mr. Trump's team and allies have waged a public relations campaign against Mueller and the Justice Department to discredit the investigation and soften the impact of the special counsel's potential findings.
Topics of Mueller's obstruction investigation include the firings of both James Comey and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, as well as Trump's reaction to Attorney General Jeff Sessions' recusal from the Russian Federation investigation.
Similar to Trump, Giuliani also accused the special counsel of leaking the memo, telling ABC News that Mueller should have released a statement condemning the Times' report and should investigate his team in response to its publication.
Rudy Giuliani, one of Trump's current lawyers, told the Times the team was preparing for the possibility.
They also spelled out in detail why the firing of James Comey, the Federal Bureau of Investigation director, and other key moments being scrutinised do not amount to obstruction of justice.
The letter also questions why there wasn't a special counsel investigation into President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton amid the email server debacle. "And in fact, when I chose to just do it, I said to myself - I said, you know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story".
They argued that the president holds a special position in the government and is busy running the country, making it hard for him to prepare and sit for an interview.
