Jay Sekulow, one of President Trump’s lawyers, said Monday it would be “very inappropriate” for the Justice Department to publicly release the president’s written testimony to special counsel Robert Mueller.
“If I … put forward a written statement and there was a declination as to any legal liability, I would fight very aggressively for that information to not be released, and I feel like any lawyer would,” Mr. Sekulow said on CNN’s “New Day” show.
The article goes on to state the following:
“As a lawyer, you don’t waive privilege, you don’t waive investigative detail,” he said. “It’s not a simple just wave your hand, and we released the document. I think that would be very inappropriate.”
Mr. Trump never sat for an interview with Mr. Mueller during the 22-month probe, but did provide written answers to questions the special counsel submitted.
“As a lawyer, you don’t wave privileges … I think that would be very inappropriate.”
