The White House legal team is reportedly considering ways that President Donald Trump could answer questions from Special Counsel Mueller, who is investigating Russia's efforts the influence the 2016 election.

In recent weeks, Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano has emphatically stated that Trump should never agree to a face-to-face interview with Mueller and his team, warning that it could be a "perjury trap" and a "recipe for disaster."

"It's very, very easy to trip somebody up when you have all the documents, you have all the testimony, you have all the prior witnesses and you're asking somebody questions that you know the answers to and that they don't," Napolitano said on "America's Newsroom" on Monday.

Instead, he suggested, Trump's legal team could submit written answers to Mueller's questions.

"Written answers would be a victory for the president," Napolitano said, explaining that Mueller certainly would prefer the back-and-forth of an in-person interrogation.

He said any misstatement or slip-up by Trump could be construed as a lie to a federal official in a formal investigation, which is a felony.

"For a person that doesn't use an economy of words -- like the president -- [it] could be a disaster," he warned.
