Charlie Hurt: Robert Mueller Has No Right to Ask a Sitting President About Lawful Actions He Made as President

‘It raises constitutional questions that I think President Trump’s legal team has the upper hand in’

EXCERPT:

HURT: "It’s kind of hard to say. Obviously Scaramucci is exactly right. The President absolutely wants to testify but that’s why you have lawyers. You have lawyers to look out for your interests and to think in a more cool way about what the different traps are. There is no doubt in my mind this whole investigation was supposed to be about collusion during the election with Russia. It has morphed into conspiracy and has now become the strange thing about obstruction of justice. Well, you know, what is it that Robert Mueller wants to ask the President? He wants to ask him about his frame of mind when he fired Jim Comey? Robert Mueller has no right to ask a sitting president, a duly elected president about lawful actions he made as President. It raises constitutional questions that I think President Trump’s legal team has the upper hand in."
