'50/50′ chance Trump will be subpoenaed, Giuliani tells ABC News

Trump again called the investigating a "witch hunt" and said he would like to speak to Mueller if he had confidence that the probe was fair. "It's been a privilege, and I'm confident that the matter will be in good hands with Emmet Flood".

But even Dershowitz, who has advanced a controversially broad interpretation of the presidential privileges and has been critical of the Mueller probe, has said recently that he does not think Trump would win if he were to contest a subpoena. Or to use another metaphor: "Mueller would know that trying to interview Ivanka Trump would be like lighting a match to the highly combustible Donald Trump", theorizes Elizabeth de la Vega, a former federal prosecutor who worked under Mueller as US attorney.

Trump is the most easily distracted president in history.

The White House announced Wednesday that Cobb will retire at the end of May.

Three people told The Associated Press that Flood is on deck to replace White House counsel Don McGahn, who has been making plans to leave for some time. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations.

Patrick J. Buchanan is the author of a new book, Nixon's White House Wars: The Battles That Made and Broke a President and Divided America Forever.

"It was actually very hugely coordinated", he said, recalling that he spent nearly as much time meeting with members of the legal team as he did political aides.

Trump's lead personal lawyer, John Dowd, left in March.

Critical decisions lie ahead.

President Donald Trump's legal approach to dealing with Special Counsel Robert Mueller has reached its battle phase.

"I can say that Giuliani has done Trump no favors, especially this morning when he suggested Trump's motive was campaign-related".

The President's comments arrive at a time of heightened scrutiny over whether he and his legal team will participate in an interview with the special counsel as part of the ongoing Russian Federation investigation.

Rudd was the fourth high-ranking minister to resign from Prime Minister May's Conservative government in the past six months. The British government says they will be allowed to stay and has promised to set up a simple no-fuss registration process.

"You have got a gaggle of investigators which can be all Democrats", Trump mentioned of Mueller and his group. Mueller is probing not only Russian election interference and possible co-ordination with Trump associates but possible obstruction of justice by Trump. If charges against Trump are to be brought, this is the arena, this is the forum, where the battle should be fought and the fate and future of the Trump presidency decided.

In other words, Trump is tweeting a bunch of weak theories and ideas about obstruction of justice, and may still not really understand why firing Comey got him into so much trouble and why attempting to shut down the investigation now would be so unsafe for him.

Also, given Trump's penchant for rambling off the cuff, any such open-ended interrogation could turn out to be risky territory for him to enter in the hands of skilled veteran inquisitors.

"What are they afraid of?" Trump's attorneys aren't really going to start refusing to produce documents or destroying evidence, I trust. Trump gave the impression of having no idea where Cohen got the money to pay Daniels.

"Finally, for the first time there's now an external operation that's handling such matters", he said, describing the model as similar to the one developed during the Clinton administration as he faced impeachment hearings over his cover-up of an affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Comey said in the interview.

But some lawmakers who sit on those committees remain unsatisfied, particularly members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus.
