— Peter Hardy, a former federal prosecutor and white-collar defense partner at Ballard Spahr, offering advice for President Trump if he were to arrange an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigative team.
Hardy went on to offer a recommendation for Trump’s lawyers: “Even under the most controlled conditions, I would think twice, three times, four times, before allowing my client under those circumstances to talk to the government. You always have to think very, very hard about it. Particularly, if someone is hard to control.”
Peter Zeidenberg, a former federal prosecutor and partner in Arent Fox’s white-collar and investigations practice, also had some advice for Trump’s legal team: “If I were his lawyer, I would tell him don’t do it. There’s no way he can avoid perjuring himself.”Via Above the Law.
