Donald Trump’s lawyer said he’s leaning against making the president available for an interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller in the probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election, and that Trump wouldn’t have to comply with a subpoena.

“Every lawyer in America thinks he’d be a fool to testify,” Giuliani said, adding that Trump in the end “may testify” if the right agreement can be worked out with Mueller.
