  • Special counsel Robert Mueller threatened President Donald Trump and his legal team that he could subpoena Trump if he refuses to testify under oath in the Russia investigation.
  • The alleged threat came as Trump’s legal team and the special counsel’s office were negotiating terms of a one-on-one interview with the president, which, at the time, Trump said he did not want to grant.
  • The development sheds new light on the internal wrangling between the special counsel’s office and Trump, as the probe of Russia’s interference in the 2016 US election gains new momentum.

The special counsel Robert Mueller threatened President Donald Trump’s legal team with a grand-jury subpoena in March if Trump refuses to voluntarily sit down with prosecutors conducting the Russia investigation.

That apparent threat came during negotiations between Mueller’s office and Trump’s lawyers, at a time when the president’s legal team asserted that they had no obligation to answer questions from Mueller under oath.
