  • President Donald Trump’s legal team, led by former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, is once again in talks with the special counsel Robert Mueller about an interview with Trump.
  • Trump was reportedly “champing at the bit” to sit down with Mueller, but he soured on the special counsel following the FBI raids of Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s property.
  • Interviewing Trump and determining whether he had “corrupt intent” is central to helping prosecutors determine whether he sought to obstruct justice in the Russia probe.
  • Mueller’s team has indicated to Trump’s lawyers that they would ask about four key events during an interview: the firing of FBI director James Comey; the firing of national security adviser Michael Flynn; Trump’s role in drafting a misleading statement his son released in response to reports that he met with two Russian lobbyists at Trump Tower in June 2016; and Trump’s knowledge of the Trump Tower meeting.

An interview between President Donald Trump and the special counsel Robert Mueller may once again be in play.

Comey’s A Higher Loyalty, which publisher Flatiron Books says explores “what good, ethical leadership looks like, and how it drives sound decisions”, and which a Guardian review said likens Donald Trump to “an ignorant thug whose tantrums and rants make up for gnawing personal insecurities”, was published on 17 April. Flatiron president Bob Miller and publisher Amy Einhorn report it has sold more than 600,000 copies so far, with more than 1m copies now in print, making it this week’s number one bestselling title in the US.
