Stormy Daniels' Lawyer Says There's 'Basically Zero' Chance Trump Will Testify for Mueller Voluntarily

News & Politics

There's almost no chance that President Donald Trump will agree to testify or be interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller as a part of the ongoing Russia investigation, Michael Avenatti said Wednesday on MSNBC.

Avenatti, who represents Stephanie Clifford (better known as Stormy Daniels) in her lawsuit against the president, made the comments while talking to host Ali Velshi. 

"I think the likelihood of the President voluntarily sitting down for an interview or a statement under oath with Bob Mueller or anyone from his team is basically zero at this point," he said. "Based on my professional opinion and my years of experience... I just don't think it's going to happen;"

His comments came after the New York Times published a story early in the week detailing dozens of questions that Mueller reportedly wants to ask the president. And earlier on Wednesday, the White House announced that Ty Cobb, one of Trump's lawyers, was stepping down to be replaced by Emmet Flood, who served as President Bill Clinton's impeachment lawyer.
