The New York Times obtained a copy of a confidential letter sent by President Trump’s lawyers to the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III. The letter was a response to the special counsel’s request that Trump agree to be questioned about allegations that he committed obstruction of justice. The lawyers argued that Mueller does not need to talk to the president and laid out a series of claims that foreshadow a potential fight over a subpoena, were the special counsel to try to force the president to testify. Here’s the text of the letter with annotations for context added by NYT reporters. See also the New York Times’ related article here, this Constitutional Law Prof Blog post and this Lawfare analysis.
