Since May of 2017, special prosecutor Robert Mueller has been investigating whether there was any collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election. This investigation has been the major story of the Trump presidency and has overshadowed much of what the administration has done. While it appears no end is in sight, it does seem to be entering a new phase. It is being reported that Mueller and his team are in negotiations with the president’s lawyers for an interview with the president.

The president, when asked if he would meet with Mueller, made it appear unlikely. According to USA Today, the president said at a press conference recently, when asked about an interview, “Certainly I’ll see what happens.” He added, “But when they have no collusion, and nobody’s found any collusion at any level, it seems unlikely that you’d even have an interview.” This is a reversal of the position he took in June when he was asked about talking to Mueller under oath. At that time he said, “100 percent … I would be glad to tell him exactly what I just told you.” The question before us now: Should the president allow himself to be interviewed by Robert Mueller and his team?

The Issue

Should the president allow himself to be interviewed by Robert Mueller and his team? If he refuses, would he make himself look guilty? Or, is there no reason for the president to allow the interview?
