Dershowitz: Trump Legal Team Will Make Mueller an 'Offer He Can't Accept'
Alan Dershowitz said that President Trump's legal team has made it very clear how they will respond to the special counsel's request for an interview with the president.
Trump's attorney, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, said Wednesday that his team could respond to Robert Mueller's request by the end of the day.
Fox News chief White House correspondent John Roberts spoke with Giuliani, who said there's a 90-percent chance the interview parameters will be sent to Mueller.
Roberts said that Mueller's acceptance of the conditions will be based off how much his team wants an interview with Trump, as well as the degree to which his team would admit this could be their last chance.
On "America's Newsroom," Dershowitz said that Trump's lawyers will set a series of conditions that will legally protect the president going forward, which Mueller will not agree to.
"They're going to make him an offer he can't accept," Dershowitz said, arguing that Trump's team wants Mueller to subpoena the president, which he says will end months from now "in a draw."
Dershowitz added that Trump won't be able to be questioned about why he fired former FBI Director James Comey, but could certainly be questioned about the 2016 meeting involving Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower.
"I don't see a crime, at this point, that Mueller can come up with," he said. "I don't think you can obstruct justice by exercising your Article II powers under the Constitution."
He said that it's "awfully hard" to show Trump's testimony is actually needed, saying that Mueller could be attempting to capture Trump in a perjury trap.
